9:42 am
are openly breaking federal law? n the constitution, if he's supposed to uphold the law, i don't see wiggle room for him to get out of that. the united states, not just for a couple states that are the united nt to states. i'd like to see some discussion nd maybe you have some panelists to discuss this ecause it is never being discussed on c-span. host: let me ask you, talking i assume.juana laws, why -- what concerns you about country laws in this and where this ends up going, what track we're on when it comes to marijuana use in this country? pediatric rican has said that shouldn't be allowed. and it is against federal law, no known drug with benefit. i just don't understand. if it is a federal law, the
9:43 am
should uphold that federal law. the united states is more than california and washington, a few other states, but it never seems to it never seems to come up for discussion. originally, it was for glaucoma, chemo patients and of course transformed into just walking around smoking pot. that is a great use of approximation. host: fred with his thoughts this morning. va ughan is up next, line for democrats. good morning. are you with us? caller: yeah, hi. host: go ahead. just think that this whole immigration thing is america is based on every culture is a busy and keeping muslims out, t is ridiculous, muslims are valuable as humans and contributors to the world.
9:44 am
extremists are different, have nothing to do with islam actually ople should read the koran, because it is valid religion, just liketremists are extreme christians, insane nothing to do e with islam or anything like that, you know. ahead, didn't mean to cut you off. ridiculous. host: the president tweeting this morning about efforts to ban. travel he wrote just before 7:00 this morning, people, the lawyers and it what they l want, i'm calling it what we need and what it is aa travel ban. the justice department should have stayed with the original ban.l the justice department should ask for expedited hearing of the before down travel ban the supreme court and seek tougher version. tweeting again just before 7:00,
9:45 am
any event, we are extreme vetting people coming into the united states to keep our country safe. are slow and political. just a few minutes ago, the president with another tweet morning. tweeting at fox and friends this morning saying, democrats are aking forever to approve my people, including ambassadors, obstructionist, want approvals, is what the president wrote. that is on the president's mind morning. dale up next, line for independents, what is on your mind? yeah, hi. i was hoping to get you on memorial day. about the all volunteer army and encourage people to write their senators and d encourage them to have honest discussion about whether democracy should have all-volunteer army. voluntary army is fine for first it reminds me of days you could buy your way out out of eb t or scription. three reasons, one, it is
9:46 am
undemocratic. two, when you are only have a of less than ut wealthy people, you don't have the same response from congress. a hink if we have regular-draft army that unlike thanam, no exception other for health, we wouldn't have been spend it would go years in humvees in iraq and afghanistan because there would have been outrage that had effect, not outrage. army, y, all volunteer using reserve for second wave, like we did in iraq and afghanistan. have reserves, you're using reserve for regular replacements and i think when we went to iraq, we should have draft to have real reserve and couldn't change as stuckary instead of being where we're at. i'll let you respond. ost: dale, if there is mandatory service, how long should it be? service d be mandatory
9:47 am
for? caller: mandatory service should e for -- well, doesn't have mandatory peacetime. i would like from my personal iew, like to see any time they deploy more than 5 or 10,000 into a new conflict, they should immediately initiate draft and start training their just in case things don't go well, shock and awe it?'t go well, did host: men and women? caller: men and women, yes. thing, i don't think -- there is no reason for people like ng haliburton to pay for meals for guys. is atizing the military waste of taxpayer money and undemocratic. combat, i'm kind of and i combat, that depends what combat you are talking about, talking about infantry, that should be
9:48 am
all men because i want somebody big and strong to carry me off battlefield. talking about fighter pilot, helicopter pilot, if women are to do that, fine. ut all these jobs being filled with private contractors are mostly jobs, probably could be by petite people if it had to be. host: dale in maryland, thoughts phones. we want to hear yours. democrats, 202-748-8000. 202-748-8001. independents, 202-748-8002. phones for the next 12 minutes until the program ends morning. michael in d.c., line for democrats. go ahead. aller: i voted for trump, democrat. something that surprised me, culture impact that has on policy. t is shocking we can drop illegal immigration by 50 or 60% without passing any huge
9:49 am
bills that would do that. so i wanted to know if you had a comment on the effect culture of the president has on the bills the laws or even on and effectiveness of that. you so, michael, what do continuing has been from resident trump, what are you crediting? guest: i don't know, trying to figure that out. the law itself, hasn't been vast change to the law, ust a cultural change in america. host: my question, explain the cultural change, as you see it caller: i feel like america is sending more stronger message we don't welcome illegal immigration, not as much as in the past. immigration, both sides are trying to communicate immigration, egal but i think the trump side is really trying to communicate longer immigration is no welcome here. i'm a little shocked how effective it has been to culturally g that
9:50 am
without sign anything real legislation. so -- host: michael sthere another area of public policy that cultural communication, you impact, as have well? think there is a lot of opportunity for moral when it comes to military. when it opportunity comes to looking at food stamps and public, the way we're public people with assistance. i if any culture or if change in culture can have this impact without signing legislation, hen perhaps trump should look at using culture in other ways to get people off food stamps, unemployment without actually signing the dotted line hat forces people off the systems. my question, are there cultural that the pact the way .s. works, the way our laws work and not actual like bottom line policy signatures, bottom
9:51 am
host: michael, you're a donald , you voted for trump. like about the democra democrats? caller: i know, i've been a democrat my whole life. this is the first time i crossed the line, took a lot of heat on both sides really. you know, a lot of people on the right thought that i waited too on the a lot of people left thought i was out of my t democra democrats? caller: i know, i've been a democrat my whole life. this is the first time mind. democrats are trying to get back grass-roots of helping the blue collar guy, the faster they get back, the faster they vote again. host: john in goose creek, south carolina, line for independents. morning. caller: yeah, good morning. yeah, i would like to agree with that called from maryland as far as draft goes. you think back during vietnam, you didn't see a lot of attention paid to getting out of until the college kids were getting drafted in large numbers. started, then you had biff and lance's mom and dad scared their little boy was

9:53 am
go overseas. creek, south oose carolina. oan rochester, line for democrats. caller: good morning to you. one thing that i remember hearing on t.v. just in the last several months was bannon said would -- the united states into the ground. i think he's doing a good job. i believe that he's the puppeteer and trump is the i think that trump is wonderful and doesn't realize he is being used unpleasant and undemocratic and unpatriotic country.r this i think people need to wake up and trump needs to wake up, this is not his friend and he is not a friend of the united states. e is a fascist, and things are
9:54 am
not going as well as american people prefer and i think everybody needs to take a good that.t i thank you for letting me comment on that. the president tweeting this morning, just a few minutes ago, doubling down his criticism of the london mayor. president's tweet from 9:49 this morning. pathetic excuse by london mayor, who had to think fast on his no alarmed statement, the main-stream media is working hard to sell it. beginning his criticism of the london mayor in of the terrorist attack over the weekend. second y, this is his tweet on the london mayor in the past 24 hours, there is a picture of him there. john in west chester, pennsylvania, line for republicans, go ahead. caller: hi. i have questions, i never hear talking about what to do to reduce

9:56 am
to wars end troops off when they are mercenaries, like a ly for somebody dodger t who is a draft and it is also the cost. what it must e cost to put soldier in the field when i was in to the army because we did ourselves. for we cooked our own meals, washed etcetera.lothes, democratizingreat experience. everybody should have to go in the army and learn to live all people who come from different parts of the country that's all vito say. i know it will never happen, but agree with the previous
9:57 am

9:58 am
against islam. if you notice, he has tweeted in the wake ofgs advocated for funs are not that bad, look what can happen with a knife. he basically dug himself pretty own lawyers a deep hole by tweeting, we need a igger travel ban because this behavior, him manifesting true ban tion beyond the travel will come back to bite him if it s revealed none of the terrorists were from the countries. what incompetent fool that, is my statement. the president now with 11 those nt tweets since attacks in london over the weekend. gain, his latest criticizing the london mayor, this story from the hill yesterday after he first tweet criticizing the london mayor. the headline, i have more
