I made by a how are you -- good but. -- a couple -- topics for you. Because this this is about you guys. Use guys. You guys -- gonna have kids graduated college couple months. And if your children are. Thinking ahead. There are thinking to themselves whether there graduated with a BA BS -- to have master and have a day or god forbid a Ph.D. God forbid they get a Ph.D. in philosophy from UB and then go on to teach at Rochester and say the climate change the niners ought to be put in death camps I mean prisons -- camps. God forbid that happens thank you be releasing that. -- to use the -- too many times to. Tool on the world. What do you tell your kids. To stay. -- to -- And I got something else for you which I think cut ties activists in a weird way. Because. I noticed. As a cultural anthropologist. And please keep in mind. What I say cultural anthropologist. What that means years. I pretend it gives me license to do anything I want in the name of show Oprah that's exactly what it means. Moreover. It means that I study human behavior. As an amateur. And I figured out that all of life. Can be explained by love sex and money. Everything to do with life has something to do with love sex or money. Everything. Why what it's hardly original thought. Every great my it has come to the same conclusion. Love sex money the biggest -- of yours in the universe among stupid human beings. But I've noticed. Probably in my twenties. I never really paid attention to it. That there was a real difference. Between the sterile white bread family from which I came. You know German French Asian denial. There's a real difference between our family. And the Italian families and cozy Italian families. You know there are always like family with a capital F. The family that I. I have was more like family with a small -- -- I know that this is generalized thing and I hope you'll forgive me. But generally speaking people don't mind if you generalize but in a positive way. Italian Americans. Tend to have. Not always tend to have very strong family roots and there's a lot of pressure. There's a lot of but there's a lot of pressure. That comes from being an Italian American especially the further south you go on the boat. And god forbid jurors are so. Because then god forbid your dating somebody who isn't a Sicilian whose great great grandfather had an issue witnesses tell -- all I got. These things don't carry over. But I do have a question for this kind of based on. What I talked about with car. How much of York like family history. Lineage. You know what do you German Americans Irish American polish American. Yet many American publisher that carries down through the ages. I think it's a good question if you did at one of those situations you know of what I speak. If you haven't been one of those situations and you don't know of what I speak may be somebody will be able to explain it to you better than I. But as a cultural anthropologist I did notice this many years ago. Bet the strongest families I saw tended to be Italian American families. Also some of the most vicious. In a vicious feuds fights. But at the end of the day hugs and kisses are let's go to Albert in -- -- -- Albert you're around your children graduate. And they ask you the question now but I have my degree from UB where babies come from. Now they say now have a degree from UB delight stay in buffalo or two ago what is it.

And he just opened the second law practice. -- to join the military as an attorney. So he automatically went in as a commissioned officer. Well you college degree at their nickel and as an -- -- OK but what -- how. At what rank did he entered the service. You all he didn't do it all okay sorry you have lost -- Initially -- armored eight urged him that that I love the military like four years during Vietnam. And I didn't purged them that say -- there's great benefits UB over the because I don't be a lawyer but in the military to -- great benefits. Are well what but you know what the law is and I'm not -- anything you don't know. The law is so broad in encompassing introduce social specialized. That you know some people do real estate law. Personal injury law slip and fall law can be a sub specialty personal injury law. -- -- -- about how many times legacy that damn man on TV mesothelioma. Testosterone can tell you. If you could tell by testosterone call us -- well I haven't killed by testosterone. African. Yeah. But anyway what what is your -- special area of the law. Yeah I attended his graduation -- -- Vanderbilt university in the actual but I do remember that being saying he opened his speech as saying. -- graduates will always here which. Because the IRS's -- -- Eric Claus and aircraft system that always changing the course -- that are. And now. -- -- New York. But I can't fit but I'm gonna ask you the question one more time before I give up what is your son's special practice of the law where does he specialized. -- all in Florida. All hello what's up easy street. -- -- doesn't surprise me in the least. -- -- -- There's a special right here and in -- Is so rarely talk on the full. And it's very possible to do that you do not physically need to work in a state in order to earn an estate. Are pretty I think that's pretty impressive now as as his father. Are you at are you still disappointed that he didn't go into the military because that's -- his bag baby. So let's find out or not -- supported emit light position. And become an echo like I watched and then turn golf pro. Because -- so we we have an agreement that he would be accurate accounting. Degree and eventually golf pro. But. In the first period that there -- political and locals are and I respect -- Okay that part. The all -- and I'm letting my daughter go for political science degree is as a springboard to law school because otherwise she's gonna be flipping burgers. That's an excellent at local fire up stagger your. -- -- -- It's a fun it's a fine school with a great reputation and I'm glad things worked -- if somebody got in order to have a business like that. It just out of curiosity why did he choose Florida. Instead of Western New York because the ultimate metaphor for western New -- when they tore down my elementary school and replaced it with senior housing. That pretty much sums up Western New York why not -- year. Yeah well are you a warm climate. And I hear you hear what Florida by the way our -- -- there's or book overly. Well all right that's different is not enough Fort Myers just yeah yeah I do until I -- different for -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- How -- that 23 point Arctic island. What try to make others when you sit on on the -- on. You're in children -- well -- your way there I chuckle as we -- say nineteen years ago. When I don't spring brook golf pro shops and the business partner -- his office and he. And he was sharing with me that there's like biological clock was -- out that there thing about having a -- And it does what -- out of his office he has been questioned. He has requested. Is accurate or well -- -- to just turned out well. And I -- I don't know what the answer sort. I don't know too much law. And and and look I'm glad you called. I'm not gonna say look -- going to be some guys they all my kids were perfect angels they never got into any trouble at all. I didn't we wanted to deny that I think that but guess what they outgrew. They went through -- -- now my daughter wants to be a lawyer my son. I there's a lot of stuff I'd like to see go to film school. I know that sounds really stupid for father to say that but he might my son is -- he's too brilliant that's the problem. He's Smart that I. Certain seriously measurably smarter demonstrably smarter than -- He's like this so -- genius type. Bastard all right it is. I'll get a text from over the about a two minute tepid and LOL thanks. -- let's find out about that traffic here's our traffic's a month notice I did not say idiot here is Allan Harris Alan -- -- the drive home. AccuWeather basically all I really wanna tell you about since the weather is just gonna continue to suck until I say otherwise. Look up for black ice after sunset south and east of the city. Good look at -- this -- you're driving west of the city in your on the lake. You're going to be in deep do do no matter what so don't drive on the late bad news by the way. They're really nice voice mail from like Kevin McCaffrey -- just retired air one. And eatery county sheriff's department and you know I gotta tell it. Kevin -- lieutenant Kevin retired. -- -- -- He always that we're never gonna agree on drug wars ever. But. He represents. To me. The very finest in law enforcement. Because his model was always to protect and serve. How did you realize there's -- he just retired. And by the way the Erie county -- make a whole lot less money than some of the local cops and certainly the state police on on ballots to Seattle. Kevin McCaffrey has saved more lives. That anybody I know. Anybody of whom I've ever hurt. At risk to his all. That's what I wanna emphasize -- got paid for. Do you think -- getting paid for it made it any easier to fly his chopper to virtually the break of doom. At Niagara Falls fifteen years ago or actually 25 years ago or more. To get those people out of the water. He put his own life on the line. In -- times to save other people's lives. About sitting here just get out of blow smoke up Kevin can operate. But I just -- tell -- That was how cops you study. That is what I used to think of what I thought police work. God is who not only would give you the shirt off their back. But guys who would literally sacrificed their life to try to save yours. I don't see that same kind of dedication as much anymore. I see a different mentality in the younger cops and they do in the older cops. I get I get the email poke your bashing police. Now there's a difference. When police are protecting and serving. In good faith are always gonna have my support. When they are abiding by the constitution. We will always have my support. Here's the problem. The guy is that I know best. Are either retiring or already have retired. Today were the best of police work. They respected the constitution. They respected. The -- -- the Fifth Amendment that First Amendment either was speaking in generalities here they need to. What you get what rights you had and what right you -- to have. The younger crop. Are the products of the clintons bush and Obama. I don't trust the younger cops as far as I can throw. Because I think a lot of -- more -- To be honest with her I think a lot of them are not in it for the right reason. There in it for the money there in it for the benefits. There in it for the twenty and out. And if they have to screw your constitution. For that but for their projected to more than happy to throw into an -- to Walter. That's how I feel about most of the younger cops I've met. And I'm gonna call upon you guys or older preferably without the collar breasts. If you guys who may be turned out promotions over the years in even take the sergeant exam you'd ever wanted to be lieutenant. What you talked to these young kids coming out and say a youngsters there's more to be a cop and write a seatbelt ticket. You've got to be called on at any given moment to sacrifice your life for somebody else like Kevin cap read a lot. You've got to understand that freedom still means something in America. And it can only come from other cops can't come for me it can't come for my listeners and asked to come from guys in the clot. I'm imploring the older cops before you guys retire -- please. Give the younger guys and gals ladies some lessons in the constitution and freedom. Because player. I've been underwhelmed. By some of the younger cops -- Hate the senate but I have 526 at WB Ian. Here. Green is not ruling. And finally figured out how to evade is rich hall hall. -- -- -- -- You. Such an easy little thing here but so poignant so affect. -- at 535 news radio 930 WB EN. Yeah out you know it's debacle I'm sorry. It's so typical entertainment personality you're good one thing and you think that by virtue of being good one thing you'd be good at other plans. I do agree talk show. I've been idea great guitar player all. But anyway eight thanks for is not a party today. With me I. Can never. In a gazillion years. Give you enough thanks. For bringing me into your life. Hopefully when you've got a tough day in getting your car. In the world blows. And you know you're gonna go home to -- storm. Hopefully I've provide some respite for -- hopefully I get you -- once today. And ideally I get you think about something you've never thought about once a week. In if I've done that at five major lap 300 odd days a year in it but it got you'd think 48 -- thoughts every year. That I think I've done my job I've never been under the delusion talk radio can change the world it can't. Now it really care. Much as I'd like to believe it can it really kicked. But anyway thanks thanks for being part of the dysfunctional. Radio audience. We have a chemistry. A magic in magnetism. I can't explain it. But I know that it means everything to me and I. Think you can tell wanted to screw around when abusers it it really does. Now. A lot of hit earlier today. Wanna do this topic. But I was a rant at the beginning of this year. About the people bitching about the parking prices for the NCAA. Folks if you go to another town. Do your due diligence before -- -- Anybody seriously. Anybody coming to buffalo. Could've easily stayed. In -- seventy or eighty dollar A night hotel. Okay parked for free you beat south campus and take in the trade down for what ten dollar round trip. Less. Well I go to -- hockey and I think it's ten dollar round trip but it's been awhile. Because we have to go back to the time we had a NHL team out of trouble lately. So well. That's all you had did that. And I know that some of the media types. Are gonna be going after the parking lot owners. And all you parking lot owners have to do to a Buffalo News reporter is say we'll tell us something Bob McCarthy. As your newspaper work for -- Tell me something how many people Bob has Warren Buffett laid off -- the Buffalo News in the past three years. Why are you so scared of talk radio. Ask questions like bet. And if it's a TV reporter. Asked the same questions. Yup I pay sixty dollars so people can park in an all day event what do you charge for one minute commercial during your news. Lou you've totally shut them down. Totally. -- be bullied by the media don't let them bully you. Because they like to pretend there on your side right. I am. Obviously I have a financial interest in this I don't work for free. I don't expect parking lot of tennis to work for free either. I don't expect parking -- owners to work for pre. Now are they doing the right thing by don't -- gouging. Well. If people are willing to pay it I guess they're not overpriced. That's like somebody saying all these pro athletes are overpaid. No not somebody agreed to pay them 100 billion dollars to play football. If somebody agreed to pay them that the word that. -- ask a question. Your wife might be the hottest. Woman in Western New York. All right it chances are I probably don't. Sorry guys -- little contribution in my life but I appreciate it but your wife might be the hottest thing in Western New York. How many finish -- she put into an arena or stadium. May be a hundred. So what a football player signs for a hundred billion dollars. The owner who pays the money believes that athlete is worth it. -- I can never understand that argument. You wanna talk about people were underpaid I got there are so many people were underpaid and our society I go to work against all odds are I do. Our our people our military. Any idea the kind of -- money the military pays people. Go over -- Afghanistan or rock. To get their legs blown off give any idea. They make crap. It is our society screwed up now. It is. Is it ever gonna change now because no matter how brave our soldiers are. Unless you turn into the next all Eddie Murphy. When you get out you're just another guy looking for a job. Unless you've got a special skill set that's gonna put 5000 of these in the -- Every that's just -- these are cold hard realities of life. That you need to understand it. I'm not saying their right and that's and it's the wage should be aid is unless it's a way I like it but it just happens to be reality. -- Reality sometimes sucks. While ago I try to escape from it every time I -- it's called Jamaica. 803 on -- thirty is the phone ever start at thirty on the cell phone 180616. WB EN. So parking lot guys are gonna get savaged. By the way Michael Savage Savage Nation and the one tonight WB yet but. I've already given them defenses against being attacked by other people in the media. Bad if your cold out like people like Byron brown or mark -- cars part of the Democrat machine that runs the state. Here's all you have to say. Well if we're. Being so confessed at -- with the money we're charging. Did the county. Put out a memo saying it wouldn't accept the bad tax revenue from tourists. Because I didn't get that memo. Is the county not gonna collect sales tax money when people fill up their gas tanks to drive back to Syracuse. Rick -- -- today puts out this tweet. Sixty dollars we've rolled out the greed debt carpet why is OK for government to be greedy. But the private sector. Takes a beating for taking advantage of a situation where it is a supply and demand equation. I don't know if you know this mark -- cars but New York State has the highest taxes in the universe. Maybe a slight exaggeration. -- just stick with what you know. Stick with what you know. Don't tell parking -- guy how to run his business. And unlike a -- like I say he can't go to people. And forced them to give them much money. You can't mr. Paul and cars. If I don't pay to give people in my audience don't pay their county property taxes you have legal authority to make them pay. The parking lot guy has no legal authority to grab somebody by the steering wheel and -- them in the parking lot. I think all the cars is being a disingenuous populist with this. Tweet he put out today. And hit book if I were a parking lot older. Would I feel good about bullying people for sixty bucks though. I I don't think we're at it but what I do it if that's what I would get for parking spot who wouldn't. Come -- If you would say that don't know why don't we charge five dollars. You're not a business person. You know business runs on the bottom line. In -- soldier I've I've earlier went into the monologue about all businesses even this one. We have bills to pay. You know every employer to the -- this week folks. Every employee that this radio station. When we look at our fight -- statements you know what they pick up for Social Security what you don't know is that your employer is matching that dollar for dollar. So you know it sucks to see all that money drain daddy your paycheck for your employer there at the same amount. And it's not like the government's gonna say you know what were not greedy we're gonna take it easy on its. If the Democrat machine or the Republican machine in New York State. Could literally turning upside down and shake you and get the pennies and live out your belly button they do. And don't try to kid me and tell me they wouldn't. All right. I have a question two questions. And you know the parking lot playing I'd pick the wrong time to do. And even now I don't think is it time to do. Music is a game. You people are ready that are you think people are too practical. To buzz vehicle. Activated -- Beers. Yeah I mentioned that earlier. As one of my annoyances about this whole thing that people get all up arms about the parking lot owners charging sixty bucks for parking. I don't remember the last time somebody called in to bitch about and eight dollar beer at the arena. And again what because a local family owns a concession in -- bunch of billionaires were supposed to roll over and say. -- Now some people don't live their life that way you can let your life that -- It's like the people who I mentioned this earlier took. Have you ever gone out I don't -- revisit the entire first hour -- Charlotte just happen to them particularly brilliant. It's like the people that go to concerts. You've got third row seats to see. Mick Jagger on the stones. Or Paul McCartney. Trying to sick. Any is spent half the time getting beer it. Well it always drove me crazy little I was a kid. I would find myself asking the question did these people come to watch the game what do they come to drink beer. Because if they're here watch the game they're not stand and and this was that they were you could buy eight gold level seat at the ought. Best of the house for like five dollars. A -- -- oil ticket stubs I have every single one every game my dad ever took it to -- gutless Billups. And until it via the better addressed the personal was. The more expensive the seat was in which they set the greater chance was a they spend half the time drinking waiting to get -- -- socializing outside or BP it. CP. They weren't there watch the -- they were -- to be seen at the game. I think something like that with concerts I'd give my left testicle after groceries to see Paul McCartney. Anybody wanna make that deals and it probably but. And the right want to. I would. And what I see people on videos you know to rewrite the middle of I saw her standing there it is see people getting up leaving like. At 547 -- news radio 930 WB -- I need to break but we will take some calls to topics. Two topics number -- Your kit. Asked the question. Not the one about babies but the other one. Mom dad I'm getting my bachelor's degree. All or I've got my professional license now. Should I stay here in buffalo in New York State or should I move. My advice to my children is -- Texas or Florida welcome. New York State we just as soon ball. That's my answer to my children do I want to see them leave no two I believe it's in their own best financial interest absolutely. Absolutely. Why would that be. You can say it now you know that's just a coward's way out you're just retrieve it. Well I guess what's worse the coward's way out there playing as some people call that the suckers game. You know we got a guy that interrogation report calls -- a suckers or what is it but it would you rather be a soccer by stating -- and or would you rather be at Howard allegedly by leaving because it is how I roll sandy. If it it would abide by leaving and go someplace for -- actually put money your own pocket who's smarter. The personal insult to be -- the person who says they never gonna change. -- a year. Just food for thought. -- -- And all you're really need to know about the weather because it's gonna sock I mean it's it's not you know spray is not wrong. Overnight after the sun goes down untreated roads may very well become slick because it. Temperature is gonna dipped down to 24 degrees please please please be aware of the possibility that you can be too little long. Out of out of at all of a sudden you hit black ice and that is like folks a public good driver. And it after if I am petrified by Christ in particular black ice. Like any good western new Yorker it's happened to -- a few times thank god nobody was around when it happened. But it's no fun and don't panic don't panic -- this -- flight training. Flight training even you know your pilot's license. Does make you a better driver. It really -- it instills -- discipline in -- that you can apply to many aspects and areas of your life. Let's get back to the calls on the WB. Might. My question. Your kid asks you. Whether or not to stay or leave. -- or from western new York and what do you tell do you have regrets about staying here. I'd like to answer the question but I don't wanna do now all due in the next out is don't wanna take time away from callers right before the break when -- get some people on.
