tv   The O Reilly Factor  FOX News  December 10, 2013 5:00pm-6:01pm PST

5:00 pm
just get on there and do whatever you do on gretawire. good night from washington. o'reilly factor is on. tonight. >> taking risk on behalf of our ideals. >> world leaders in south africa memorializing the late nelson mandela. among it very controversial stuff going on. this man is exploiting the situation. we have a special report. >> this isn't some damn game. >> americans still think republicans are doing a worse job than democrats in congress. how is that possible in the face of the obamacare debacle? congresswoman michele bachmann will be here. also tonight some atheists now blatantly attacking christianity. what should people of faith
5:01 pm
think? charles krauthammer on that. >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ hi i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the exploitation of it. that's this evening's talking points memo. nearly a one dread world leaders are in south africa memorializing the late nelson mandela. symbol of freedom all over the world. up until 1994, south africa was won by racist government enforcing laws keeping black people down that was called apartheid. nelson mandela led the fight for civil rights in his country and the white apartheid government put him in prison for 27 years. think about that 27 years.
5:02 pm
for trying to get equality for all south african-americans of the after the apartheid government collapsed mr. mandela rose up to lead his nation. with the legacy of oppression it was a very difficult task. i was in south africa in 1995 when that country won the world rugby championship. it was a great moment. mr. mandela was in the stands. and south africans were deliriously happy. i enjoy my time in that country, but the poverty was unbelievable and remains so today. now, as a young man, nelson mandela had marxist leans and dealt closely with communists. check out a recent article in magazine new want specifics on that. anyone who knows anything about south africa understands mr. mandela's philosophy. enter the far left msnbc network and al sharpton. as we have demonstrated in the past, sharpton is a dishonest purveyor of information. a man who could not care less about reporting what's true. last friday, using nelson mandela as cover, sharpton
5:03 pm
attacked me. >> he said about nelson mandela last night on fox: >> 9 a years old. nelson mandela, i spent some time in south africa, he was a communist, this man. >> yeah. >> he was a communist. all right. >> that. >> >> but don't you wonder where in south africa? it wasn't like he was hanging out in soweto that bill o'reilly i'm quite certain. >> well, here i am in soweto where i did spend some time. that woman a a a former spokesperson for the dnc obviously made a mistake. i'm expecting a letter of apology from ms. finney by tomorrow. if she is honest she'll send it over. if she is like sharpton and not honest she will not and i will let you know what happens tomorrow evening. as for sharpton, is he a flat out deceiver. here is what i actually said about mr. mandela. >> 9 a years old.
5:04 pm
nelson mandela -- i have spent some time in south africa, he was a communist, this man. >> yeah. >> he was a communist. all right? but he was a great man. what he did for his people was stunning. the sacrifices that he made. he could have repudiated and got out of that prison. he wouldn't do it. >> so you can see that sharpton caught out all of the context as he has done many times before. now, any other commentator on national tv would have been fired for doing that but, msnbc seems to be afraid of sharpton. the thing is, sharpton uses the occasion of nelson mandela's death to dishonestly attack people he doesn't like. they don't come lower. now, president obama made a good speech today. but he, like many other americans, was a bit confused that cuban human rights violatorrer raoul castro actually spoke at the memorial. >> there are too many people who happily embrace madiba's
5:05 pm
legacy of reconciliation but passionately resist even modest reform that would challenge poverty and growing inequality. there are too many leaders who claim solidarity with madiba's struggle for freedom but do not tolerate dissent from their own people. >> madiba the tribal name of nelson mandela. president obama is correct phonies all over the place saying one thing but actually oppressing the oppressed by their own actions. raoul castro certainly an example of that. there comes a point when good people have to honor other good people even when they disagree with their philosophy. that was the point i was making about nelson mandela. there also comes a point when good people have to walk away from bad people who exploit situations for their own gain. i think you though all know ohio am talking about. joining us from miami. reverend, the senior pastor
5:06 pm
of the ebenezer baptist church in atlanta. mic's church. and from washington bishop harry jackson senior pastor of hope christian church in maryland. bishop, what are your thoughts on all of. this mandela really had a transformation while he was in prison. when he left robin island he said i leave behind anger, guilt, and revenge. his life is a story of forgiveness. i believe that part of the story is true. he should be honored as transformational leader who was transformed. who brought transformation and healed the nation do you think i should forgive sharpton for what he is doing? i do believe that sharpton's motives sometimes are questionable. but, he yes. i think that ultimately point out the truth. he has seen things through a grid of unforgiveness, perhaps. i think that's a shame. >> allht.
5:07 pm
reverend, how do you see the day in specific perspective. >> in thank you so much, bill. good to be here with you today. it was a great celebration. of a great man whose celebration was one born of suffering and deep sorrow. i'm inspired by the legacy of nelson mandela. i think the way he pitched a tent large enough to bring together people who were not normally in the same room is indicative of how we ought tone gauge one another on these issues i think that the question for nelson mandela and those who work with him is how do we set our people free? that was his question it was a question that was wrestled and engaged in the united states of america within the context of a cold war. i think, quite honestly, in many ways we were so obsessed with these kind of
5:08 pm
ideological debates we did not deal with human liberty and freedom. if his struggle demonstrates anything it demonstrates when we are obsessed with these kind of ideological questions and ideology has its role, sometimes we end up on the wrong side of history. >> you know, i agree with that? >> for too long. >> i'm much more disturbed by how long we took to align ourselves with nelson mandela and those who struggled with him than i am by whoever. >> it was the communist beef, reverend, that held a lot of people back in america. and they shouldn't have -- it shouldn't have. but what i picked up from soweto, it was interesting that woman, o'reilly never go to soweto. that was exactly the reason i went to south africa. unbelievable spirit. i don't know if you have been over there or not. it's it the poorest place you can imagine. syouee the porta potty
5:09 pm
behind me. they don't have plumbing or electricity there. the spirit of these children and the spirit of the people there, it is a dangerous place. i'm not going to sugar coat it. the humanness of it all was just stunning. go ahead, bishop. >> i have taken 2 otrips to south africa. planted five churches there. i have outreached to the poor in south africa. what happened on my first trip in '95, i'm preach ago man is watching me, white man, 50s, he begins to tier up, he cries. after the service he said to me they told me that you people had no spirit. they told me that you weren't really basically saying human. i believe that the spiritual answer, personal transformation is a story of the day, bill. and i think that this is a problem even with america now. sharpton, carry a grudge. they want to keep digging up the past.
5:10 pm
it's time for us to energize our discussion. >> i agree. time for us to really strip it all away and he see the humanness of it it now, the final thing, reverend. i. >> the question -- go ahead. the question of personal transformation is tested by one's commitment to what dr. king called the beloved community. the dutch reform church in south africa was committed to personal salvation as it is often construed by religious folk but it did not play itself out very well in terms it of their theology. their theology embraced the her rhetoric call doctrine of apartheid. >> i want everybody to get across on this day because you know how history is taught in america now, gentlemen, it's not taught. particularly about countries like south africa. nelson mandela could have gotten out of that prison. all he had to do was tell that apartheid government you know what? you are not so bad. i will work with you. i will do. this he wouldn't do it.
5:11 pm
27 years just think about that no matter what else the man did in his whole life. no matter what he believed and didn't believe, in what he accomplished and what he didn't accomplish. just that, that sacrifice for his people, elevate him right up here. gentlemen, thanks very much. we really appreciate it next on the rundown, crowley and colmes will react to the mandela legacy and exploitation of it later, michele bachmann on why americans still see the republican congress in a very negative way. the factor is coming right back.
5:12 pm
5:13 pm

5:15 pm
colmes, you are about as far left as they come. >> way out there. a liberal loon. >> true confession tonight you are committed leftist. i have known you for more than 17 years. i have never seen you do approaching what al sharpton does cutting, you know,. >> full statement. clearly you were praising mandela. i'm not sure why you chose that moment to call him a communist. >> you should be sure because you knew we were doing the segment. and the discussion was you have got to put ideology aside. talking to dennis kucinich. put it te'o side sometimes. a man can be a hero in a dot of listen circumstances. now you are sure why i said it? >> the context was lost because you were praising him and not knocking him or name calling sharm ton taking his death and uses it dishonestly to attack someone he doesn't like.
5:16 pm
despicable. too strong a word? >> it's not right. i wonder if he he knew everything you said? >> he knew. a producer could have done it. >> that's what they said the last 8 times. >> al sharpton has done this repeatedly. al sharpton has been on this program. >> i tried with him, did i. >> he knew to take it out of context. he took it out of context. completely and inaccurate. he used nelson mandel laps death as a sphere to try to get to you. >> despicable? too strong a word? exploiting the death of this great man. >> this is what the left does. why we expect anything different. >> as i said to comsdz, i never said colmes do anything like that exceptions to the rule. >> i disagree with you. i don't think the left does that. i think there are militant leftists who do it. the deal is.
5:17 pm
this cbs suspends layer are a for "60 minutes" because of the benghazi report. they vetted it and didn't vet it enough. brought in a man who wasn't there who says he was at the shootout he wasn't. she gets suspended by cbs news. i feel bad. >> never suspended dan rather. he should have been suspended. >> that's another story. >> but nbc, hires a guy like this. puts him on the air every single day, knowing he does this all the time we have documented it here. i don't get it, holmes. baldwin gets fired. >> i would need to know who produced the segment? editor or producer? >> even if it's true, then he should be on the air tomorrow apologizing to everybody. >> if that's true. >> and also, look, when you are hosting a show you host every night. alan and i have hosted framtion on the fox news channel. as the host, you have a responsibility to know what
5:18 pm
you are putting on the air. >> he knew. the other one, finney. bang, there is the picture. how stupid are -- i would fire them just because they are stupid. >> i mean, to leverage leverage the death. >> do the attack without mandela. >> so colmes is actually. >> don't need mandela to attack you. >> i think might be piling on. >> look, this guy and people know watch the factor over the years. i gave him a chance. i did. i brought him on. all the stuff you did. all the sweat suit stuff. all the stuff you did in harlem when a guy was killed. you know, maybe you changed. maybe you got mature. maybe things change and i try to, you know, and then the weasel goes over there and just,. >> chronically gets away with it and others chronically get away with it.
5:19 pm
>> do you know what i'm going to do tomorrow? i'm going to bring on kurtz and goldberg together to discuss why nbc employs this man. that's what i'm going to do tomorrow. >> it may be that they are trying to get to base. >> see his ratings lately? i'm not running the show over there i'm saying that may be part of the explanation. >> there is no explanation. >> all right? monica, colmes? directly ahead. michelle bachmann on more bad polling for the republicans. charles krauthammer on atheism in america. anti-christian stuff is escalating. what does charles think about that? those reports after these messages.
5:20 pm
5:21 pm
5:22 pm
5:23 pm
paragraph behalf new poll from marist college. do you approve the job republicans are doing in congress? just 22% approve, an astounding 74% disapprove. same question asked about congressional democrats there 33% approve. 64% disapprove. in general just 7% of the americans grade the present congress a or b. are you surprised that the ultra low republican number first of all congresswoman. >> no, i'm not at all. let's face it over 80% of all of the messaging regarding conservatives and media is negative and so this is not surprising it's a fact we have deal with it incumbent upon republicans to have a simple smart focused message and i think that's something we can do. >> all right. so you say the media is
5:24 pm
responsible. even the liberal media is giving the president a hard time because of the mass chaos surrounding the law. you would think that the republicans would benefit from that. >> people are upset on every level because their lives haven't improved. $3,500 a year in purchasing power lost. sticker shock on obamacare. they are very very unhappy and mad at everybody. again, will 0% of media reporting is anti-conservative. all makes sense. again it's our present reality. that's why republicans have to have a message that's counter to that our message needs to be we're here to help people. we don't want to hurt people. and this is how we're going to help people. >> i don't know how you are going to help people. i don't know what you want. >> okay. let me give you. >> no, no. before do you that and i will allow you to do it there is no central force in the g.o.p. to get a message out. democratic party has barack obama.
5:25 pm
biggest pull bully pull pitted in the world. carney gets his message out. and it's a divided party. tea party divided against the moderates. >> chris christie divided against ted cruz, it's all over the place. go ahead. >> but where we are united is on the message much the message is great. it says we want to help people, we don't want to hurt people. and we think government can help people first of all by legalizing american energy production. it's possible for people to pay 2, $2.50 for gas and markedly cut heating and airconditioning cost. it can be done. we can do it. we have got a plan. we also believe very strongly in kids. the power of kids we want kids to have a fabulous first plays education. one of the best ways to do that is give every parent in the united states a check for $10,000 you love your child the most. choose where you want your child to go. >> how can we afford to do that? what could you cut back so
5:26 pm
you could afford 10 grand check. >> we spend minimum of that already. >> going to double spend it. >> no we won't not at all. >> what do you cut back what? >> it goes to public employee unions. i would rather see this money go to kids. we want safer streets. we report about this terrible knockout game. those people need to go to jail. >> wait, wait, wait. the public school system you would take money away from it so you giving 10 k to every patient to educated their child, knock well a child doesn't have to pay for public school, property taxes pay for that so they put the 10 k in their pockets and send them to it public school? >> money comes from federal sources, state sources and local sources. what i'm saying is that that money has to be reallocated. rather than allocating it directly to the public employee union. allocate it directly to the parents. >> too confusing for me. you are making my point for me. >> simple. >> you may have a good point. you may, i don't know. i would have to study it, okay? first i'm hearing of it is tonight. but these things aren't going to turn the republican
5:27 pm
perception around. >> they appear absolutely will because it's a positive message of helping people. government can help people not hurt people. obamacare is hurting people. we're going to help people. >> we are helping people by spending all this money. >> two things that the republicans need to do. >> nobody buys it anymore. >> i want to see if you agree with me. two things that the republicans have to do to become not a pariah, not a 22%. number one, they have to put forth a better healthcare vision than obamacare. number two. >> got it. >> two, they have to put forth a way that people can make more money in the workplace they have to say we are going to create jobs so that salaries rise, not give aways, competition. that's it. if you guys can do that you have got a shot. if you can't, it's going to be 22% next this time next year, congressman. >> you do that with opportunity zone. parallel universe of growth. we always had it in america we will again. positive message of helping people not hurting them.
5:28 pm
>> thank you, congressman. if you you fly, the supreme court may have a message for you about legal action, is it legal will analyze. then krauthammer on the eighth i.r.s. movement in the u.s.a. why is it so hateful towards christians. we hope you stay tuned to those reports.
5:29 pm
5:30 pm
5:31 pm
stossel matter segment tonight. as you may know john is a contrarian. he has been following the
5:32 pm
obamacare debate with a suhere he is we were talking last week. we don't hang stossel and i. we were talking in the hallway and you think obamacare may survive. >> you and karl rove were saying it's going to implode. >> he says 100%. i say 75%. >> i say know noe government program ever goes away. >> but that doesn't matter. if the folks rebel against it. they give the republicans power in the senate and in the house next time. handcuffing president obama. he can't do anything. that's what i think may happen. >> but once people start saying my deductible is up. i can't pick my doctor. both parties rush in with subsidy. and obama is already saying oh, yeah, we are not going to let insurance company lose money. >> they will never get that through the house. is he never going to get more subsidies through the house ever in a million years, stossel, comen, you know that. >> well, with healthcare, i think -- i hope you are right. >> there is no way. there is not one republican in the united states that voted for obamacare originally. not one. and you say to me, now. republicans are going to
5:33 pm
vote more money, more subsidies to this law. no way they smell blood in the water. >> blame it on obama. solve it they will say. government must step in to help these people. >> i don't think so. i think the republicans say that we can involve it but it's going to be a combination government oversight private sector. if they are sane they will do that. they are not going to get on that big government train. that's what led us to this disarmageddon we are in anyway. >> i hope you are right. they move it to the private sector. i will will bet you they don't. i hope i lose the bet. >> how much are you going to bet me? >> whatever you want. i bet you that tie, stossel, i like that tie. i was talking to stossel before the segment started. he and i came up roughly together. he is he older than i am. we started together. if you and i when we were reporting. you were on 20/20. i was on a variety of other
5:34 pm
programs on nbc and cbs. if we had done in the editing room what sharpton did, what would have happened to us. >> we would have been canned. >> fired, out on the street. even by the liberal people that ran the networks that you and i worked for at the time. he they would have fired us. >> now on second thought. if we took a cheap shot at republican and conservative. that's sort of a cheap shot. don't do that again. >> there is a difference between cheap shot and editing something dishonestly. >> they just chopped it they didn't put three things together to make you look creepier than you already are. >> they chopped it but they cheaped while i was doing it they took it out of context totally. and we would have been fired, correct? >> you don't think that the abc, nbc, cbs, they would chop stuff that ronald reagan stowed make him look worse? >> i never saw it i worked there at cbs and abc. i never saw them do anything like that. i saw them tilt it it i saw them leave stuff out. but i never saw anything like that. >> they didn't do it consistently.
5:35 pm
i think some of that stuff slipped by. >> if you were president of nbc would you fire sharpton for doing that because he has done it before. >> yes. you are gone. >> stossel is a mean guy. i'm going to like that tie, better on me than you. never going to ogo for subsidies on obamacare. new bill o' poll question out. how much will you spend this season? please select one and we will give you the results on thursday. when we come right back, is it legal on the supreme court hearing on a case about a disgruntled frequent flier. then krauthammer on atheism. the factor will be right back.

5:38 pm
5:39 pm
thanks for staying with us, i'm bill o'reilly. if the is it legal segment tonight, three hot topics beginning with dr. shaquille afridi, the pakistani be who helped us locate usama bin laden so we could kill him in that raid. he is in prison and the obama administration not able to get him out. now there is developments, attorneys and fox news analysts kimberly guilfoyle and lis wiehl. >> a one page letter handwritten and smuggled out by this doctor saying i'm in solitary confinement. i'm subject to mental torture. i'm not allowed to see a
5:40 pm
lawyer. what kind of justice is this? i'm quoting from the letter. >> okay. >> and so, you know, just it's a reminder for us as americans to do something about, you know, not just talking to the pakistani government. >> you have got to assume that kerry is trying to get him out of there. >> officially all we have had is something from august. that's the last official request. >> there is another hearing for this guy. >> december 18th. there is going to be another hearing to see whether or not that first conviction. convicted of not helping getting usama bin laden but of being a terrorist being a traitor to his. >> being a traitor. treasonous to his own country by colluding with the united states as an ally. we give them $2 billion a year. >> that's why this is shameful. >> is he? yale for including with a country that gives us $2 billion? >> correct. that's the injustice. it's going to be a three judge panel. >> let's all be happy we don't live in pakistan. right? half of pakistan is here driving cabs in new york city. they are here. i'm happy they are here.
5:41 pm
they are a lot better off here than they are there. you are going to explain to me why russian diplomats, guilfoyle, are charged with fraud. >> 49 russian diplomats and pretty extensive. >> here in new york city. >> correct in new york city. medicaid fraud which is is the federal -- you negotiation health insurance program for the poor. that's why this is pretty reprehensible. >> what are they doing? >> what they are doing is they apply like the mothers, wives, carrying children. there is a pretty cursory application you can apply for benefits, prenatal care, et cetera. then once a child is born, it's presumptive that is going to be u.s. citizen. in these cases it's interesting. they usually are not. >> no, because they are under diplomatic passport so they are not on the soil. so they are gaming the system here. getting the u.s. to pay for a whole bunch of stuff. >> 1.5 million in medicaid. >> that they are not entitled to. >> right. >> have they an arrested. >> no. they haven't been arrested because of diplomatic immunity. so what has to happen is russia would have to say we waive that diplomatic
5:42 pm
immunity. >> he they're not going to do that. >> no. rush russia is saying. >> who busted them? >> the fbi. i will tell you why. because they were buying shoes as jimmy chu, concert tickets. spending lavishly and this was quite a scheme they had had going here. very successful at doing it. >> they got checks from the american taxpayer to pay their medical expenses because they do get paid by their own government to come here and do nothing. >> some of the money was going interest their own government. >> and they are not pour. >> defrauding the u.s. government. taking money away from families. >> not going to be prosecuted. >> we can kick them out. i hope we kicked them all out. >> we can kick them out. we should kick them out. russia says we have diplomats in the u.s. for pursuing but we do it much more private way. >> you guys been on an airplane recently. >> yes. >> pretty i didn't know tense up there especially in the winter. >> not the friendly skies anymore. >> know the supreme court is hearing a case about a man named paul clement. a washington attorney. >> right. >> that the airlines are not
5:43 pm
treating their customers fairly and in good faith, right? and he has filed some kind of lawsuit. >> clemens the lawyer for this rabbi in minnesota filing the lawsuit going all the way to the supreme court. saying, hey, you delta, northwest, they have merged, you can't take away my platinum elite status. this guy flies a lot. >> frequent flier status. >> he complained a lot, apparently about luggage and this and that and the other. they said that's enough of you, we are taking away your status. >> the guy was a pain in the butt guilfoyle. and they revoked all his miles that he already accrued. >> they essentially deleted him like he didn't exist. >> deleted him. >> you have no more benefits. >> no platinum elite status. >> the municipal supreme court o decide whether the airline has a right to do that. >> duty good faith and fair dealing there is a conflict between the law. the state contracts the law. >> contradiction. the supreme court going to force the airlines to reinstate these? >> no. >> no? >> if you are a pain in the butt can you lose your miles. >> don't be a pain in the
5:44 pm
butt. >> wait a minute, if you have a million miles and the guy can say you are a pain in the butt, bye. doesn't seem to be fair. >> it's written in the law. the states have the ability to do that. so he is trying to see if the feds will help them out. i think you file 300 personal complaints not 400. >> is that what he did? >> not that many but a lot. he is that guy. >> i feel bad. >> oh, jeesh. >> i'm going to get a hand glider. ladies, thank you. krauthammer on deck. atheism attacking christianity the topic this evening. charles is next.
5:45 pm
5:46 pm
5:47 pm
back of the book segment tonight. american atheists on the rise. some are attacking christianity. according to a survey by the pew research center, just 2.4% of americans say they are atheist. just over 3% say they are
5:48 pm
ago not stick, gnostic. that means they don't know. 40% are not affiliated with any religion. times square obnoxious sign put up by eighth its group that says no needs christ during christmas? nobody. blatantly offensive, totally unnecessary. joining us from washington fox news analyst charles krauthammer? the rise of people who are not religious in america, does that signify anything? does it mean anything? >> i didn't see much of a rise in those graphs. there was a tiny increase in the numbers of those who are unaffiliated. i think that's more of a statement about the church, perhaps, than it is about atheism. i saw the lines about atheism and ago no, gnosticism, united states by far is the most religious country in the west. it's not each close. i don't see any eruption of atheism upon the land. >> but they are very aggressive, vocal, well-funded and they target,
5:49 pm
you know, this year the -- since they got their kicked in the department stores by me, primarily, now they are targeting little kids, in money society and south carolina. saying don't you dare sing o come all ye faithful or we will come in and sue you. what is the reasoning behind that? i mean, do you think he they are going to get more recruits doing that kind of stuff? >> well, look, i think you have got to draw a distinction between the militants who want to stick a finger in your eye and who put up that stupid and offensive sign times square. that's not persuasive piece of advertising. i don't think you are going to get a lot of people who walk by that sign have epiphany and say i think i will give up god because of that. >> no. >> small group of extremists. when you think about it, there are a lot of minority groups in the country that have their extreme elements. you have got the tree huggers who have people who go at.
5:50 pm
and who destroy a logging cabs. you have got the animal rights people who break nih and let the monkeys go. you have got the vegans, the extreme ones who will undress in the middle of a city square. so, you have got people in a lot of minority elements who want to get attention or who want to be offensive. and you have got them among the atheists. i would bet the vast majority of atheists are silent atheists who move among us and don't announce it and don't wear it on their sleeve. simply have their own world view and leave other people alone. >> i would agree with that i mean, i'm interested about 'such a small number but they have such an inordinate amount of -- i don't know, the aclu and people like this, i mean, they take up their causes all the time. that leaves me to discuss the secularism. we see in washington state and colorado legalize marijuana. gay marriage pretty much they won that battle. i mean, perceptions have
5:51 pm
changed, gay marriage, you know, more and more states will do that particularly in the north and the west. so there is -- we are particula northwest and the north. we are becoming a more secular nation. we still maintain a high level of religiousosity, is that a word? >> sure. >> and that is the trend of the future? >> bill, even if it is not a word, you're big enough that if you say it is becomes a word. it is religiousity in there somewhere. i don't think these are necessarily signs of secularism, i would bet there are people smoking pot that believe in god and those who don't. >> it is a more permissive culture, surely you see that, maybe you don't, you live in washington. it is a more permissive culture,
5:52 pm
unfettered, abortion up until the later stages, the progressives have the media in their pocket, so they're powerful. >> i don't know where to start on this, so much air, so little time. look, i would start with the proposition that somehow, you know, all of these things, the permissiveness is radically increasing. i would say one of the remarkable phenomenons in the last 30 years is the increase in opposition to abortion among the young people. you would have thought together with other trips, yes, the permissiveness on drugs and sex and all that, that you would get an increase in the lassitude about abortion, but it is in the reverse. i think there is more relationship between the new science, the image, the
5:53 pm
sonograms, the idea of the fetus as a real person, the resistance. i think the trends are going in both directions. i wouldn't worry terribly much about the fate of the republic. >> all right, charles, as always we appreciate it. check out charles' book, a huge best seller. factor tip of the day that will make your christmas much better. the tip, moments away.
