2:00 pm
>> meant to placate the prog. our befuddled hero who don't use wind mills to heat their dorm rooms. venezuela is symbolized by the now absent sean penn. meanwhile in new york, the most progressive mayor ever trashes
2:01 pm
charter schools that help minorities because it doesn't comport to his cronies. al sharpton cheers. a health care law meant to help the unfortunate is delayed to help the fortunate. so instead of saving the patient, they plan the wake, but we're the dumb ones, right? skeptical of a president who conveyed cool, not experienced. we're so racist, but you don't bring a rock to a gun fight. you don't bring a community activist to a kgb fight. it's so 1979. we have been here before when a wave of weakness caused by a left-wing disdain for the left set the table for the real revolution. we must find our inner reagan if only to answer this one question, how low must we go before pate reism is no longer beneath us? so bob -- >> yes, greg. >> you were there in the 1970s. it feels a little bit like the
2:02 pm
1970s? >> not exactly, no. but i think the point about being -- carter being surprised by afghanistan, i was in the white house doing national security issues and we were surprised by it. we shouldn't have been. we had a break in our national intelligence we shouldn't have. the comparisons are apples and oranges. going into yugoslavia for the russians was to stop the new government from getting into the power that was anti-soviet. here's my question back to you. what exactly is it that ronald reagan accomplished? >> i think after a sense -- it was trying to undo what president carter accomplished, which was create a sense of mulace. >> are you serious? >> let me go back to a couple things. >> let me go through a few things. he said he was going to cut it, not a single employee of the federal government was cut. taxes did go down, i'll give you that. the budget did go up. he invaded grenada to save 400
2:03 pm
rich medical students and he went into the middle east with 2,000 marines, more marines killed in one day than any other time in history. tell me where in all of that -- >> probably the most inspirational leader, and he came at the right time, bob. which is what is happening now. >> i understand your context of what you're saying. go ahead. >> can i answer? >> sure. >> all those things are true, but you forgot to mention unemployment went down from 9% to 5%. inflation was running 14% when he took over. he brought that down to 4% or 5% inflation number. he created more jobs than any president, including president obama, and then he did this. he won the cold war without firing one shot. >> won the cold war? >> won the cold war. what? >> can't say one person won the cold war. there were a lot of people. >> there's a reason the day ronald reagan was ready to go,
2:04 pm
they took the wall down. he had everything going for him. he didn't want people to like him. he wanted them to fear him, and they did fear him. number two, he also had the strategic -- the star wars, remember that? the fbi. >> 15 years before it was ever -- >> he put intermediate -- >> i'll tell you this, you're going to tell me, star wars, the fbi had nothing to do? >> i think it did. let me ask you, you think reagan would stand on the border of kiev and say get out? >> he doesn't have to. >> the most important thing reagan did besides draining and bringing the russians to their knees which is why they have been building up their oil. they know if we got another ronald reagan, they could bring them back down to their knees. as they put an intermediate range nuke missile into western europe. what does president obama do? the exact opposite of that. no, we don't need missile defense shield. putin has the eu, a feckless eu abandoned defense budgets for
2:05 pm
the welfare state. how is the president going to rally the eu, which was a big point yesterday on the show. when we have the french sending vessels over to help the russian navy and the germans have shown no appetite to get involved. president obama has no cards to play. >> those mid-range weapons in europe were introduced by harold brown and jimmy carter in 1978 and 1979. you're right about the french, the feckless eu. >> at least carter canceled the olympics. president obama doesn't even have the guts to do that. he canceled, whaultd, the paralympics? >> i think it's a difficult position because they need this energy that russia gives them because there's no other way to give them. >> god forbid we would want to piss off the environmentalists. >> i'm not needed here. that was my point. a good point. so, okay, amazingly, bob turned this into a question of what is happening today to what did reagan accomplish? that was five minutes spent rehashing that.
2:06 pm
i'll also say one thing about reagan. he believed america was exceptional. that is what helped the world. he was a guiding force, the leader. you're looking to him. i don't think people around the world are looking to president obama to lead them out of this. that is not what he said he wanted to do, even. plus, gorbachev and putin, very different people. gor chauv, open minded, intelligent guy. putin, intelligent guy and a crazy maniac. th things. here's one thing, if you look at america and say what could we do? why do we have interest there? there is one thing we could do. a senator in wyoming introduced a bill in 2013 that still to this day has not had even a hearing in the banking community, and it would be great for jobs in america. can't get -- environmental concerns? >> no, i love the idea, i get it. we have so much natural gas, but the problem is that's pretty
2:07 pm
unrealistic. >> why not have a hearing, though? the democrats won't even allow for there to be a hearing so they can have a discussion about it. i think that's at least worthwhile. >> why is it unrealistic? >> the liquefy gas and then ship it is so expensive. granted, an option. in my opinion, a better option is to solidify the ukrainian pipelines, the russian pipelines that run through ukraine, and make sure that that continues to flow, and whatever it takes to do that, you make it happen. there are three major pipelines through ukraine to russia, to the other parts of yourm, to polan poland, romania. if you secure those, you don't need to liquefy -- >> but the head is in the soviet union. the headlines there are. they could turn them off, right? >> why would they do that? they turn them off, no one is going to pay their -- >> i understand that. let me get back to what dana said. there's been an existing ban on europe getting both natural gas and oil from the united states.
2:08 pm
it seems to mnow that we had th additional oil discoveries, now over 50% of our oil is our own, why not send oil to them? >> oil? >> yeah. >> crude oil? >> yeah, because there's a ban on it. >> ship oil and oil products? >> the world already exports clean gas to places like china while we export dirty crude. ukraine is bye-bye. it's lost. no getting them to join the eu. if putin wants to take it, it's his to take. >> i don't think that's all lost. i actually think that both ukraine and georgia now, this might light a spark under europe enough to allow a discussion to allow them into nato, which would be an important message. the big concern is does anyone believe putin is going to stop at crimea? >> what about the spark here? i just feel in the united states, there's such a balkanization due to the
2:09 pm
divisiveness created by a party to win an election. is there such a thing as a patriotic fervor. >> we're talking about ukraine, right? we have almost no trade -- about a billion and a half dollars in ukraine with ukraine. import about $1.9 billion. the eu has $32 billion in and out. this is the eu's fight. this isn't our fight. there's nothing really in this for us other than trying to flex our muscle and say, hey, vlad, listen, we're tired of you playing that game. >> i disagree. >> but there are other tyrants around the world that pay attention to that. >> our trade with europe is important. and a world market crisis -- i was disturbed today. i know the dow is important, but when we measure america's involvement based on the dow fluctuations when putin says he doesn't need at this point to go into eastern ukraine, that bothered me. for those of us who think that
2:10 pm
reagan did a lot of amazing things around the world, i sort of feel like we owe it to his legacy to at least see it through. >> yeah. he's provided inspiration for people who now want freedom, and i get it. it may not be in our best interest. >> why isn't it in our best interest? >> i agree. there are other tyrants. >> he could say we stand with them. that could be something he says. but we haven't really made that strong commitment to show that we actually do stand with them. i will say this, i think the last thing we want is the ukraine to join nato because then, then they have a treaty obligation to go to war with russia. so i don't -- i don't know if that's the way to go. >> a deterrent to putin. >> i think the way to go is now. if he's going to do anything at all, which i doubt president obama would do, because he's already cancelled the missile defense arguments. he would have to get back and reinvigorate them with the polls and the czech republic. he already argued they're a defense against iran, which he said was not a threat.
2:11 pm
obama's own words makes it tough to rally international support. >> let's keep in mind, there is a u.s.-ukraine treaty. the united states does have some defensive agreements with the ukraine. i don't think -- i think crimea is lost. i don't think they're ever going to pull out of there. i doubt very sincerely they're going to try to go further than that. >> why? two years ago, he went into georgia and he never left those two parts of georgia. now he's in crimea. why do you think he would stop? >> he took a very small percentage of georgia, and they said he was going to take over the rest of georgia. >> can we invade anywhere? just saying -- >> your house. >> what about defense? should we be rethinking the fact we're gutting defense? we're cutting 10% of troops. >> very bad timing for the obama administration to announce a drawdown of the military two days before this -- >> you think it's a coincidence? that's the message we send?
2:12 pm
>> a very bad, bad message. >> i don't think they think that far ahead. >> the american people are the last group that are going to put troops on the ground in europe. >> the only person recommending that is someone from the carter administration. >> i wouldn't recommend troops but i'll take it one step further. john kerry argued a billion dollar loan guarantee to ukraine, i think that's a mistake, too. it's not our fight. listen -- >> how do you defend, though, the reagan involvement and then say now that we have nothing to do with it? >> what do you mean, the reagan involvement? >> you gave a very robust and good defense of ronald reagan's work -- >> right. >> -- to rid the world of communism and break down the wall. he thought it was in our interest to be there. why now today in 2014 do you not defend our right to be involved. i don't understand. >> i think the strategic defense initiative, right, defense initiative? >> i think it was more than that. economic freedom, property
2:13 pm
rights, the right to self govern. >> we called it a defense. you want to put something in the air -- >> if i buy into the argument just briefly, i know reagan really did bring down the soviet union, which i don't, but ukraine was part of that. >> let me point something out to answer dana's point. we had a cold war going on with russia, right? that was us and russia. this is ukraine -- >> it was a belief in democracy and self-governance and belief in freedom to protect america's security later on. >> i gotta go. they're yelling at me. >> don't yell at me. >> i'm tired of being yelled at. straight ahead, we go to ukraine and talk to shep smith. he'll have the latest next. captain obvious: i'm in a hotel.
2:14 pm
and a hotel is the perfect place to talk to you about hotels. all-you-can-eat is a hotel policy that allows you to eat all that you can. the hotel gym is short for gymnasium. the hotel pool is usually filled with water. and the best dot com for booking hotels, is it's on the internet, but you probably knew that. or maybe not, i don't really know you. bellman: welcome back, captain obvious. captain obvious: yes i am. all those words are spelled correctly. bob will retire when he's 153, which would be fine if bob were a vampire. but he's not. ♪ he's an architect with two kids and a mortgage. luckily, he found someone who gave him a fresh perspective on his portfolio. and with some planning and effort, hopefully bob can retire at a more appropriate age.
2:15 pm
it's notocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. it's just common sense. predibut, manufacturings a prettin the united states do. means advanced technology. we learned that technology allows us to be craft oriented. no one's losing their job. there's no beer robot that has suddenly chased them out. the technology is actually creating new jobs. siemens designed and built the right tools and resources to get the job done.
2:16 pm
2:17 pm
welcome back to "the five" and our continuing coverage of the crisis in ukraine. shepard smith is on the ground in kiev and joins us with the latest. i know we have a little bit of a
2:18 pm
delay, so if people can bear with us, we look forward to hearing your update. go ahead. >> well, i'm standing behind me is the square where all of this unraveled, beginning back in november, and then continued in a more fiery way in independence square here in kiev. they shut the lights off at 11:00 local time building by building and area by area. they all went down, we don't know if to save electricity or something else. it's pitch black on a foggy and cold night. there's still people in independence square, we took pictures from my iphone. people are coming here to mourn those who died in this uprising. think of it, i have been listening to your conversation and it's all politics and oil, but for so many people here, this is about we are ukrainian. we heard that our president is going to align with the russians, and we didn't like it. we protested in the streets, and eventually, the government came out and murdered our neighbors and our family members.
2:19 pm
and after our government did that, our parliament threw the president out of office. the president took helicopters and went into russia where he's now being protected by the former kgb man, putin. and at the same time, they learned $70 billion of their dollars are in offshore accounts. their president is being secured by this man who has to hear from them, invaded crimea, and for all intents and purposes, taking it over, and they come back to the square where they no longer protest, but they try to have some sense of national unity to the point they can, while wondering what their future is. and this is all happened in a matter of months. an area that has been here and been allied with the russians for hundreds of years. for those people who are ukrainian nationalists, and not to say everyone is, but for those who are, these are very trying, very disturbing, and very sad times. we saw a lot of tears today and a lot of hushed mouths and somber faces as they really don't know what tomorrow brings and they're horrified by what
2:20 pm
yesterday was. >> i'll start with bob. >> shep, let's talk about the crimea for a second. there's a place where it's not as nationalistic about ukraine because it is heavily ethnic russian. i made a comment the first segment that i thought that putin will not pull out, that the crimea will go to the russians. and my question to you is, do you think ukrainians, since it's already an autonomous state within the country, do you think they really care? >> i think they care for a number of reasons. i think everyone here cares, including putin, for one thing, that's a warm water port to the black sea. and it has enormous strategic interest there. especially for putin. it's the only warm water port for him, the only place where it doesn't freeze over in the winter. you spoke of the oil pipelines.
2:21 pm
they said you have to secure those things. saying that sort of thing and doing that sort of thing are two different things. as to the point of whether he would pull out of crimea, look what he did in georgia, as dana was pointing out. he went in and had to fire shots. this case, he went in bloodless and then do you tip-toe out and just own it? all of these things are very much unknown with what is left in the balance is one mistake away from a shooting confrontation, and a shooting confrontation changes all games. >> hey, shep, it's andrea tantaros. we have seen oftentimes in these conflicts in different countries protesters having different views on what the reaction of the united states should be and should the united states get involved. iran was very different, obkwsly, when its protesters stormed. is there any sense on the ground from the protesters and the people in ukraine that they want the united states to get involved? do they even mention the united states? what is their perspective? >> you hear more about europe,
2:22 pm
frankly. the germans, of course, have an enormous interest in the markets in russia because they are so heavily invested in russian oil. it's europe to which they want to be aligned. and you know, tan gentally, that means the joouns as well, but it's europe that is right there. the western part of the country feels like a series of european cities where the east feels like the old ussr. it feels and looks and acts like two different places. but it's certainly true that over a period of time, the east is much more closely aligned to russia and the west more so to europe. they're now caught in a place where it doesn't seem to much matter because they're all in a scattered limbo. >> hey, shep, i hear you're headed over to crimea next. i assume that's right. i know we're on a big delay, but let's move forward. regarding crimea, you know, the russians, it's a very russian -- it's a russian speaking part of ukraine.
2:23 pm
they are autonomous already. do you think you'll see a different face of the people when you're in the crimea region versus ukraine and kiev where you are now? >> our people who are there tell us we absolutely will. that there are people there who wanted the help from the russians, who are closely aligned with the russians. when they saw from their perspective the west sort of taking over, that means their interests aren't as well supplied as they would have been in a nation where everyone was represented. so at least from their perspective, the russians came in to help, and many there hold signs that insist they're happy to have the russian ties. they think more like russians. they have grown up more like russians. their familial ties are across that border. it's a regional difference that's hard for americans to understand, hard for me to understand. people who are here try to explain it to us and it's difficult because there's been
2:24 pm
so much turmoil and so much division for so long, that when they're able to unite under one ukrainian flag and it worked for a while, the hope was it would continue. now they're faced with so many unknowns and so many people to bury that i think heads are scattered. i remember how so many of us felt after 9/11, and i don't want to, you know, maybe the analogy is imperfect, but the thing that works for me is all of a sudden, everything changed. you never really thought it would. they were protesting something their government would do, and then suddenly all these people are dead and in come the russians. you don't know how to process it anymore. and from the looks of the faces here in kiev, at least, it seem how to process it. >> shep, it's greg. i know you're in kiev, but i have a question about moscow. do you have a sense that perhaps there might be a potential for protests or something that would happen in moscow? is putin concerned about that, or does he feel his own population is largely ambivalent?
2:25 pm
>> it looks as if they're trying to ratchet up the population because they're reporting completely inaccurately. there's nothing to suggest the russian state media reports that there's 650,000 people who are running for the border from ukraine into russia. that hasn't happened. there are no twit pics of it, no reports of it. the russian media are reporting it as if it has happened. they're riatcheting up a nationalistic we must do this to help the russian sentiment, which is one thing until a shot is fired or a person dies, and it becomes a shooting conflict, and then with an agitated russian population, who knows what you're going to get. that's what the analysts in ukraine are talking about. not that protests might happen, but action corrects a mistake that has an already inflamed russian population based on propaganda turning violent in a different way. >> i wanted to ask you to follow up on that, understanding that the protesters are a little shell shocked about what's transpired since they started
2:26 pm
protesting a week ago in the square, what sort of access to a free media and the internet do they have now or has russia tried to cut off their access to any sort of outside communication? >> here in kiev, is that what you meant? >> yes. >> they have complete access. we can watch bbc, we can watch euro news here. there's access to sky news. all the news sources are available here. the protests have ended. and what was this fiery series of demonstrations with thousands and thousands of people is now tires that you still smell and memorials with millions of flowers that are still here, and the same people protesting are walking around and i heard so many people say it today, looking shell shocked because what they were trying to do was make a government listen to them. what they got instead was dead neighbors.
2:27 pm
and they look around this burned out square, independence square, and they wonder what went wrong and how do we get back what we had? >> thank you so much. we appreciate you being there. >> be prepared to kiss your insurance company good-bye forever. that's not from us. that's the exact words of a key architect of obamacare. eric has the details up next. ♪ no two people have the same financial goals. pnc investments works with you to understand yours and helps plan for your retirement. talk to a pnc investments financial advisor today. ♪
2:28 pm
2:29 pm
2:30 pm
2:31 pm
some brokerage firms are but way too many aren't. why? because selling thfunds makes them more money. which makes you wonder. isn't at a conflict? search "proprietary mutual funds". yikes!! then go to e*trade. we've got over 8,000 mutual funds and not one of them has our name on it. we're in the business of finding the right investments for u. e*trade. less for us, more for you. the fund's prospectus contains its investment objectives, risks, chargesexpenses and other importt information and should be re and considered carefully befo investing. for a current prospectus visit two major obamacare developments today, including yet another delay, and guess who that's going to help? the democrats up for re-election in november. but first, kiss your insurance company good-bye. that from a key architect of obamacare. ezekiel emanuel who happily predicts the demise of your health insurance as you know it. in his book, he writes, quote,
2:32 pm
you won't have insurance companies to kick around much longer. the system is changing. the aaccountable care organizations and hospital systems will begin competing directly in the exchanges and for exclusive contracts, they'll cut out the insurance company middleman and keep the insurance company profits for themselves, so be prepared to kiss your insurance company good-bye forever. at first blush, you say, okay, there's a middleman. >> i say good riddance and don't let the door hit you. insurance companies have been exactly that, middle men who ripped off the money between the people who pay their premiums and the care they get. the idea hospitals would join in with quality care physicians and get these companies out is the right thing to do. >> dana, one of the issues, though, is the way it would work in the hospital systems. maybe three or four would provide health care and insurance to patients. what if there's not a specialist in the system?
2:33 pm
>> i'm sure it will work out perfectly well. what i think is ezekeuliekiel e is dying to get on the kelly file again. president obama is practically repealing obamacare by himself. he's doing it in order to help democrats in the midterm elections. what i think will happen, what could happen, if you let the markets figure this out, then they're already trying to a little bit. at some of the drugstores, you can go in now and you can get a strepthroat test. you can get a flu shot, do a couple things you might need to do at a medical center. you might be able to do that without insurance. the people this really benefits are the very rich who can benefit from writing a check to their specialist for anything they want, and you know who will be left behind? the 99%. that's what i think. >> they can do that now. >> only an obamacrat would rejoice in the death of an
2:34 pm
industry. let's not forget, the insurance industry is made up of people who make five-figure salaries. the nature of progressivism is eliminating something without replacing it. the left lives in a land of permanent adolescence, destroy, destroy, without thinking these are human beings with heart vessels and hearts, and they don't rip off people. the profit margins of insurance companies is nothing compared to what the media makes. >> i don't think this is a horrible idea. you look at some of the major industries. look at stock brokers, they're being weeded out because individual investors are smart and they're going directly to the companies and buying the stocks. you know, you're going to hate me for this, but i see the beauty in this of eliminating all the profits. >> so for all the ideas we heard, this is probably not the scariest. the scariest in my opinion is when there's an article in t"ne
2:35 pm
york times" saying the united states is going to sponsor a health care plan, meaning the administration is going to sponsor its own health care plan and not hold itself accountable to any of the laws the insurance companyvise to hold themselves accountable to. what does that mean? they go out of business and we get single payer. this is a little different. this is hospitals and docs working together to cut costs. it's very new, very untested, but i'm not so sure because it reminds me a lot of the managed care rhetoric of the '80s. and ezekiel wants nothing more to do than manage our care. and that's what makes me very nervous. instead of the insurance companies, you're going to have them saying they're going to do it smarter and cheaper, but it's going to be like insurers with limited networks. i think higher copays, less quality benefits and the premise is this guy knows better than everybody else, we're all stupid. >> the insurance companies are not part of the free market enterprise here. they're in the middle of it, interrupting it. >> i don't think this is going
2:36 pm
to do what it says it's going to do. dana made a really good point about what should happen. people should pay for catastrophic care, and everything else, they pay out of the pocket. >> this is a topic we could go on a long time for. we told you we were going to talk about it, the president unveiled his $3.9 trillion budget proposal. more of the same, over a trillion in new taxes on businesses and high earners and hundreds of billions of dollars in new spending. dana, this has a snowball's chance in that place -- >> that place. >> of passing the house. >> i said that place before. i think, well, a president's budget outlines his priorities, so he's telling us a lot withpr worried about it getting through congress. he's happy to have another year long extension. he can put on paper he wants to do all these things he thinks will help his democratic buddies
2:37 pm
win the election in 2014. >> one part of this is taxing the rich. there's a huge surprise. if only president obama could envision our enemies around the globe as rich americans, he would be the most feared leader on the planet. >> i was saving you for the last. go ahead. >> there's three quick traps. one is the federal minimum wage. they would love to get republicans to blast. deep defense cuts they're going to try to get in exchange for something, and i think they're desperately looking for republicans to say no and be against something in this election. i haven't heard republicans on capitol hill fighting back and calling this what it is. >> you know, maybe it's time for us to recognize something here which is it's not about his democratic buddies. it's about what we believe in. we do not believe in an unfettered free market because we think it rewards wealthy people. we do believe in government involvement. that's a distinction. we don't agree with each other and i understand that. but that's what we're about.
2:38 pm
we democrats, this reflects what we concern ourselves with. >> you're concerning yourself with fantasy over practicality. >> what is fantasy about building highways, roads, and schools? >> it's suggesting the federal minimum wage, there's never any cost to anything. there's never any downside. no, it's all upside for you people. >> you believe -- >> unemployment is a leftist proposal. >> it's your position and our position is here. we don't agree. so let's agree to disagree. >> we caved last time and republicans don't trust the gop this time. >> let's take the agenda out. >> they're yelling at me, too. next up, are parents obligated to pay their kids' college education? one high school senior is suing her mom and dad for tuition money and a whole lot more. a crazy family feud coming up. [ woman ] i've always tried to see things from the best angle i could.

2:40 pm
it's how i look at life. especially now that i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin but wondered, could i focus on something better? my doctor told me about eliquis for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising.
2:41 pm
eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why i'm shooting for something better. eliquis. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.

2:43 pm
have college paid for by their parents? one high school cheerleader is suing her mom and dad for college tuition money and other expenses. her name is rachel canning and she appeared with her parents in court today in new jersey. she said they kicked her out of the house a few days before she turned 18, but her dad said she left home on her own accord because she didn't want to abide by reasonable house rules like being respectable, keeping a curfew and doing chores. >> privileges to living in my house? yeah, private school, car, education, that comes with living under our roof. >> i think she's being enabled, steered down the wrong area, and it's killing us. it really is. >> breaking developments just moments ago.
2:44 pm
for now, the judge denied all relieve rachel requested saying it set a dangerous precedent. a follow-update is set for april 22nd. what do you think of this, greg? she left a couple days before she turned 18. they paid for her first semester of private high school. she said i want legal fees, all the money you set aside for me for college. it's your responsibility to take care of me. >> if she wasn't so cute, i would be really angry. the initial reflex these days is no longer conversation. it's litigation. we sue instead of say -- our lawyers are literally our mouth pieces. why talk anymore? >> the parents are deeply distraught over this. they tried to get this daughter, who seems like a total nightmare, under control. they have no legal obligation to pay for her college, and they don't have to pay for the second semester, in my opinion. >> at least not yet. give obamacare time to figure that out. you can be on your parents' health insurance until you're

26. so it's not unusual for a young person to think, why at 18? why the number 18, do i have to be on my own. i wanted nothing more than to be financially independent when i was 18 to make my own decisions. i wasn't until i was out of college, but this bothers me in a few ways. i think even though she's a nightmare, she's probably really desperately troubled inside. i wish we didn't have to deal with somebody's family thing on the front page of the paper. >> she ran away, they don't like her boyfriend. she won't come home. i remember in high school, there was that threat looming if i didn't abide by the rules, i wouldn't get my college paid for, which is why i walked a fairly straight line. if i didn't in college, i would get sent home, so i was really good. it sounds like the parents are doak the same thing. she just doesn't want to listen. >> i look at the father and my heart bleeds for him. i have a 15-year-old sophomore in high school, and if he has to be able to do that. he has to be able to say, you either play by my rules or get

out. otherwise, kids will just run rampant. they'll do crazy stuff, they'll run up credit cards, do drugs. you have to be able to do this. let me tell you one other thing. if this judge rules in favor of the daughter, it will be the worst decision in the history of decisions because can you imagine how many kids are going to sue their parents for a whole bunch of stuff? >> well, quickly, i think the idea of the judge would even say they had to keep the status quo of the money they put away is a mistake. she decided to leave home, she won't play be the rules, that's fine. i'm sure she could find other ways to make money. >> she better learn how to waitress. advice from me, go home, be respectful, don't ruin your life. still to come, is it okay for parents to yell at their kids, or is it as bad as spinging them? the debate continues when "the five" returns. ♪
