GLENN: Okay. So Edgar Israel Ortega Chavez was shot Tuesday night in his left buttocks and is in stable condition, you'll be relieved to hear, this according to a spokesperson for the hospital general in Tijuana who spoke on the condition of anonymity didn't want to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Ortega, 22, found by Mexican authorities on a dirt bank above the spot where the border crosses the dry concrete line Tijuana river basin, Tijuana police said in a news release yesterday, San Diego police said the shooter was a ten year border patrol veteran but they didn't release his name. Border patrol said the agent feared by getting struck by a rock but the shooting drew swift criticism from Mexican authorities. Oh, I bet it did. The incident is of grave concern to the government of Mexico. Under no circumstances would it be justified to shoot lethal or nonlethal objects to the Mexican side of the border. There are conflicting accounts about what happened. Police say they witnessed the shooting. They were on the Mexican side of the border. The Associated Press talked to those people. More than a dozen people gathered on Mexican soil to plan an illegal crossing into the U.S. They threw rocks to distract agents. The border patrol agents tried to disperse the crowd with pepper spray bullets. Jose Maria Martinez, how do you is that a woman or a man? Is Maria do I not understand the name thing?
STU: I think the first name is the most critical, and Jose would be identified potentially as a man.
GLENN: I would think so, too, but now I'm confused by Maria. Why is Pat suddenly so very quiet?
STU: He's very smart.
STU: Very intelligent man.
GLENN: Why are you so quiet?
GRAY: Well, I'm waiting for my time.
GLENN: You go ahead at any time. Go ahead. I mean, I'm ask you are living in Houston. I'd like to know.
GRAY: You're kind of going. I'm listening.
GLENN: Where is Jose, is it a man or a woman? Is Maria suddenly a unisex name? I mean, if somebody comes, you know, calls me up on the phone and I say, hey, Maria, you're on the Glenn Beck program and the other voice on the other end said, yeah, I just want to tell you something I was thinking, I'm a little confused.
GRAY: I got you. I feel your pain, I do. I feel your pain.
GLENN: You are not going to give me an answer on this.
GRAY: I don't know the answer, Glenn. I wish I did.
GLENN: Jose Maria Martinez who was with the group said one agent exchanged his pepper ball launcher for a rifle. The agent then fired three shots from a concrete post that marks the official border, Martinez says. Now, Martinez who again was part of the rock throwing part of the group, said the agent said, you want to fight? You want a war? Let's do it. And pow, he got him right away.
GRAY: Oh to humanity, oh, the brutality. How dare he shoot an illegal, throwing rocks, tried to kill him in the buttocks, how dare you do it. Here we go again. How much time?
GLENN: We should give him the chair. Not even, not even lethal injection. The chair. And they should you know what? If you are on if you are in the chair and you wear, like, some sort of a synthetic hat while you're in the electric chair, when they start pumping that juice through you, you are had. Your head is set on fire because of the synthetic material and it kind of melts over your face but you don't really die. So I think we should make I think we should not only give this border agent the chair, we should put him in synthetic clothing and a hat so his head catches on fire. And then we lower the juice just enough so it kills him but only after he's been burning and getting juice for about 20 minutes. That's how evil this border agent is.
GRAY: I got Mexico on the other line. They like it. They like it. They are taking it immediately to the Bush administration.
GLENN: That's good. If we could get that into the world court, we would be set.
GRAY: No, we're done. We're done.
GLENN: Odds wait a minute. Hang on a sec. When you say we're done, how did you mean that?
GRAY: In every way possible.
GLENN: Okay, good. Odds that this guy pat?
GLENN: Do you just want to go
GRAY: I just sit back every day.
GLENN: You do?
GRAY: Every day. Just when you thought it gets bad as it possibly can.
GLENN: It gets worse. Every day I look at it and I say, you know, no way out. I mean, it's just, how do you how, without okay. Hey, hey, hey. Stu, Dan which, by the way, Dan, you are not eating.
STU: What's wrong with you, Dan? Are you okay?
DAN: I'm fine. I'm just waiting for my next wave of food to come in.
STU: This wasn't like the weight lifter who broke his elbow.
GLENN: There's food right in front of you.
STU: Oh, yeah, there's a hash brown right there. Should I bring it over to him?
GLENN: Let's do this. I'm going to take a break. I'm going to give everybody a moment here, okay? Dan, I'll give you a moment. Stu and Pat, I'll give you a moment. When I come back, I want a positive way to get out of all of the messes that we're in, you know, the planet going to be bursting into flames soon, the no oil situation. No, let's not really work on actual energy sources that we understand at this point. The Georgia situation, the Iranian situation where, mark my words, Israel is going soon. The whole Islamic extremism thing, the economy, all of these things I'd like happy possibilities on how we get out of all of that. So who you guys work on that for a second and then I'm going to come back here in just a second after I tell you about our sponsor.
GLENN: So my best friend Pat is on the phone and he just said a few minutes ago, he said, just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it gets worse. And we were talking about the, you know, how every day you get up, and maybe you don't. God bless you. God bless you. But every day I get up and I look at the news and I see and I think there's another log on the fire, there is another log on the fire. And I just can't figure out a way that, you know, if Americans don't start standing up and saying, wait a minute, I mean, here's the way to me here's the way out. The way out is to make sure that the people in congress and Senate, the President at this point, the people in congress and Senate are people of real integrity that see our Constitution as an ironclad document that is not something that flaps in the wind or evolves. We are a Republic. And then they demand fiscal responsibility and Draconian cuts in our spending, period. Then on the other side they also look at energy and they become to the environment Draconian and they do whatever they have to do to get that oil out of the ground, to get that shale into our gas tanks, get the coal into our gas tanks as much as we can, as fast as we can so we are energy independent. Plus, you go ahead and develop all your alternative energy but you've got to move quickly to become somewhat energy independent. Without that happening and that's going to take the Lord Jesus himself coming down to get that to happen, at least with these clowns in Washington. Give me the other solution. Stu, we start with you. Give me the other solution.
STU: I think there's other solutions.
GLENN: Tell me how it's going to just going to go away? Because usually these problems just go away.
STU: Well, they sometimes do. Like, you know, obviously the Georgia thing's all fired up right now and you've got the extremism thing going on but I mean basically, like the Russians will try to take over Georgia and then they will try to expand that and then they will probably go back to Afghanistan and then those extremists will get upset there, then it will start a war between extremists and the Russians. They will wipe each other out and then that will be available for us to take. We can take all the oil from there and that solves our economic problems. That's basic math.
GLENN: How does this work?
GRAY: I keep preaching the same thing over and over. It takes total vigilance on our part.
DAN: We don't have vigilance.
GRAY: If we're going to say, I voted, I did my part, then we're toast. There's no way out of it.
GLENN: So then we're toast. Doesn't that sound like hard work, Stu in
STU: That sounds really hard.
DAN: I have an answer for you, Glenn. Universal healthcare obviously coming, I think we take it to a more specific route and we go universal Ambien and we just, everyone gets Ambien and we just sleep through it all. We just kind of sleep it off.
GLENN: I like that because we're not spending money if we're sleeping.
DAN: And then when you're sleeping since it's a government program that puts you to sleep, you are going to need government assistance to pay your bills and all that. So you'll just live for free asleep until you die.
GLENN: You know what, the government will make better choices than we do.
STU: I understand that. I think there's a different route we can do. Georgia is obviously an emerging democracy. What do democracies produce, fast food restaurants. New innovations. They will ship the food back to us, create more cholesterol, then our doctors will solve the cholesterol will burn for fuel and we'll solve the economy.
DAN: We could just unilaterally invade the Bahamas and just live on the island for the rest of the
GLENN: Pat, I'm with that one. What do you say, the Bahamas?
GRAY: I'm good with Bahamas.
