attempt at a family comedy political thriller. [ laughter ] first movie that went direct to your toilet but the principle still stands what separates conservatives from liberals is conservatives thinks government is bad and people are good. unless the people work in government then they are bad. but they can leave government, go to a lobbying firm and become good again. it's a complicated theory. but freedom loves have a plan to carve out a haven of liberty, safe from the tyrants. >> there's a move in idaho by a group of people that want to start the community. >> they are call it the sit adele. >> it's families that choose to live together in accordance with thomas jefferson's ideal of rightful liberty.

7:42 pm
assault assaults in our freedom. they don't really believe in freedom to, they believe in freedom from liberals, people they disagree with, from the sensibly priced clothing of ann taye already. [ laughter ] these folks cloak themselves until patriotism pretending they can reveal the true intend of our constitution they are just another (bleep) neighborhood association whose nostalgic utopia will fall part the minute somebody decides to paint their house mauve. if you need me, i'll be in the backyard, eating hot dogs drinking beer and blasting this. ♪ no, it's a mix tape, can you

7:48 pm
locker room settings in new york city. it's incredibly easily, maybe not to say it but certainly to show it.
