GLENN: By the way, Gavin Newsom now says the green police, we talked to you about that ad, the green police on the Super Bowl. And he's saying now that that kind of hits close to home. No. Really? He says that the Audi commercial do you happen to have it?
PAT: The green police?
GLENN: Yeah. He pushed for the type of recycling and composting mandates that give this commercial believability. They are already doing a lot. As we told you, they are already doing a lot of this in Great Britain. They are going through your garbage in Great Britain. They monitor what you throw away, they monitor what you do. I mean, I don't know about you, but I can't wait until the green police come.
Green Police Super Bowl Commercial
(Green Police ad plays)
GLENN: So Gavin Newsom tweeted yesterday, okay, that green police Audi commercial hits home. It is illegal to put an orange peel in your disposal. It's illegal to do that now.
PAT: It's an actual violation of San Francisco's compost laws. I mean, helicopters don't show up yet and shine a spotlight in your home, but it even the mayor of San Francisco admitted, yeah, maybe we should rethink that.
GLENN: Remember when we were
PAT: I amazing.
GLENN: I mean, we said this kind of stuff was coming. Nobody believed it. Everybody painted us as lunatic. I can't tell you. When is anybody on the other side going to open their eyes and see it? When are the good Democrats going to open their eyes? You've got Barack Obama. We led the show today with Barack Obama. Remember his pledge, I'm not going to cut I'm not going to raise taxes, not one dime, in any category for anybody over $250,000. You won't do it. He now says he's agnostic on that, everything's on the table, that he may have to go after the middle class for taxes. Now, how does this guy survive? You watch tonight at 5:00. I taped this show last night. We have Niall Ferguson who is up at Harvard, he's an economics professor up in Harvard. He's Scottish. I like to call him English just because it hacks him off. But he's going to be on tonight. He's a guy who has done a big, one of the an Emmy winning documentary for PBS, the History of Money. He's one of the guests that are on tonight. And we look at Europe. You'll see, where is here. Niall has or Niall has a financial Times opinion piece out today: The Greek Crisis is Coming to America. Even a casual look at the fiscal position of the federal government, not to mention the states, makes nonsense of the phrase "Safe haven," talking about people who are moving their money over here to the United States as a safe haven. The government debt is a safe haven the way Pearl Harbor was a safe haven in 1941.
Tonight it's not crazy Glenn talking about it. Tonight you're going to meet some people that are talking about it. There is an optimist on the show, and I actually agree with him. He thinks things are going to break down here in America and but we're going to, we're going to reinvent freedom, et cetera, et cetera, and I agree with him. Where we kind of disagree or he didn't really want to go was the fire that we have to walk through to get there. Niall Ferguson and who's, Damon Vickers is the other guy from Nine Points Capital who is extraordinarily frank and I don't think a free market kind of guy, quite honestly. I think he's much more of the Eastern model. I mean, I think he thinks the future is going to hold and look more like, I don't know, but this is the sense I get. I think he thinks it's going to hold the future for America's going to look more like China than anything that our founding fathers put together. But these guys will tell you the truth. Niall Ferguson from Harvard is a brilliant, brilliant man. And when you see what is happening over in Greece and over in Europe and you see how we are, everybody's been saying be more like Europe, be more like Europe, be more like Europe, we are more like Europe. In fact, we're so much like Europe, it's a little terrifying. Tonight, 5:00. Please don't miss it.
