heather: this is not just a fluke you are talking about, the mentality of hard work, that unemployment rate 34 consecutive months, something that seems to continue. >> if you go up on capitol hill and start talking about this stuff to democratic politicians they will look at you like you are from another planet or you are a late arrival from the 18th century and probably they would prefer your university fire you. that is the basic mindset, america has to get back to the mindset that work is good. if we don't behave more like nebraska and less like new york soon we are going to end up speaking chinese and waiting on their tables. heather: peter moricci with some strong words. have a good day.
