this has polarized the community whether or not that's a safety measure, what the newspaper did or whether or not it actually puts those gun owners in harm's way somehow. >> clayton: the newspaper released that statement last week or right around christmas time saying, look, look we did this because we felt its was the newspaper's duty to publish the names of these individuals so that the community would feel safer, be more aware of who was living next door. exburglars and gun owners say this makes you less safe. because you are aware of which houses have guns and don't have. >> if you want to make it. make a list hough had illegal guns, criminals who had guns. these are people who obeyed the law. who went through a series of steps to register the firearms with the state. these are the people you want to have guns. >> furthermore from like a judicial perspective. the thing that annoys me about this whole thing there was no journalism done with this. i was thinking about this for the past few weeks. it wasn't as if they published the names and then also tied
some statistical evidence as to the individuals or the counties or the neighborhoods that had more violence as a result. they didn't do any journalism. they simply just published the names. >> furthermore, they didn't call guns. what's your back story? why do you own a gun? now it's come out there. are some women who have protective orders against exboyfriends and ex-husbands they felt they needed to be protected. everybody has their own story about why they feel they need to have a gun in their house. what's interesting is that former criminals and burglars and armed robbers have come forward that say what a list like this does for them. they say it's a gold mine because it tells them the criminals, which houses don't have guns. here is one talking about that. >> one of the things burglars look for when they go into houses guns. it's so easy to sell guns and make cash. they always look for them. now that this interactive map suspect and the issue is such a strong issue, every criminal
in those two counties in the surrounding area is aware of it they are going to be checking out this map. they are going to be casing the neighborhood. and there is a couple of ways to find out if the homeowners are home or not. so you are going to see in the next few weeks several burglaries or more occur in this area. >> alisyn: that's interesting. he he is saying that one of the things they do is steal guns from houses that have guns. other criminals have said they also hit the houses that don't have guns. tucker: those guns get in the hands of criminals who commit violent crimes. if you want to take the guns off the street in the hands of the dangerous you would never publish a list like this. >> clayton: isn't it the club vs. low jack thing? bear with me i will go esoteric on you for a second. low jack in cars we don't know it's there and therefore it's a deterrent. criminals think when they walk up to a car maybe it has low jack. when they see a club stuck on the steering wheel. it's the not knowing that acts
as deterrent. you don't know which house you are entering and less likely to go into the house. >> maybe the emphasis on burr the people who wield them chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the united states. you can get arrested carrying a gun driving through the city and yet they lead the nation in violent crime. >> more murders again. the arrest they make are to your point with illegal guns they are finding. i lived in philadelphia mayor michael nutter against the issue of illegal guns which are the reason -- not the reason but the things that are being carried by individuals carried by these crimes. >> meanwhile, mayor rahm immanuel of chicago and the state lawmakers there are pushing for even stricter gun laws in light of the new town tragedy. obviously everybody wants to do something and take some sort of action after newtown. we can't let that ever happen again in this country. so one of the things they are suggest something a data base.
very controversial this suggestion. a data base because right now they say that there is not a data base. if your gun is lost or stolen. there is is no trace of it. you don't have to report that to anybody. so, then, guns that are stolen, or even that are just sold. if you legally buy a gun and then go out on to the street and sell it to somebody with obviously with ill intent that's not trace either. they think if they had a more secure data base that would help them control the guns on the street. >> certainly easier than why people are shooting at each other. what sort of society gives rise to random violence. that might be worth considering at some point. >> alisyn: absolutely. it is a many tiered problem. we're open to your suggestions. are you on twitter? >> i think i am. >> clayton: i realized also tucker is not following me on twitter tucker: i am now and as soon as we get to a commercial. >> about a half an hour ago
tsunami warning for alaska. this after 7.5 earthquake hit just off the coast earlier this morning it happened about 200 miles south of juneau. no reports of any damage from this quake. a tsunami warning remains in effect for parts of alaska and canada. they broke out of a chicago jail and climbed down 20 stories with a rope made of bed sheets. it's classic. now, both inmates are back behind bars. 38-year-old kenneth conley picked up nearly three weeks after the daring escape within steps of police headquarters. i like to hide right under their noses. he was wearing a disguise and walking with a limp. wow, he is really cut from the central casting. police caught him after he tried pushing one of the officers and making a run for it his partner joseph banks was caught two days after the escape. imagine being told your flight is delayed because your pilot is drunk? this happened to 53 passengers at the minneapolis saint paul airport after 48-year-old coal
byron christensen was pulled off american eagle flight in handcuffs. police boarded the plane and gave christensen a breathalyzer test after he smelled like alcohol. >> i'm glad they caught him. it's scary to think of pilots getting away with stuff that the facts that he was intoxicated but probably hadn't slept much either. >> i'm glad i wasn't on that flight. >> he is suspended. you can get drinks and snacks from them but what about buying pot machine? a california company wants to set up machines for recreational use in colorado and washington state. they are already used in some states to store and dispense medical marijuana. >> they will get ticked off if it jams. they won't even punch the vending machine. >> they will just walk away. >> hey, it's okay.
>> all those buttons. >> fantastic. >> check in with maria molina upstairs in the weather center in for rick reichmuth. >> good morning, you guys. good morning, everyone. today we will be looking at temperatures pretty much where they should be at right across the country. as we head into the next several days. i have good news for many of you he is sprnlly across areas in the northeast. we will be observing temperatures warmer than this time the year. we will make it into just shy of 50 degrees here in new york city over the next several days. before that, current temperatures right now 39 in dallas. definitely a chilly morning for you. only 29 degrees in raleigh, north carolina. as we head into the afternoon hours. we will be warming up into the upper 50s in the city of dallas. 36 for you in chicago. low 50s across atlanta and also the city of raleigh, north carolina. we are actually going to be tracking a little bit of snow today across places in the central plains. already seeing some of that across parts of oklahoma and kansas. eventually, you guys, we are going to be seeing a little bit of snow showers into the mid-atlantic later on tonight
into tomorrow morning. including right here new york city. but no accumulation. >> marie a thanks so much for that update. let's talk about this story. you heard it on fox news for the past several weeks. that is john hammar. he is the former marine who served in iraq and afghanistan who was then going for r and r in costa rica with a buddy. he crossed the border into mexico with gahanna. he he thought he had registered it and filled out all the proper paperwork but he didn't. he ended up being locked up in a mexican prison for five months. well, his father is now speaking out about just how -- what bad shape he is in. >> it's not just r and r that he was going down for a is surfing trip. he had post-traumatic stress disorder and other issues. he was going down there to relax. imagine being locked up for five months chained to a bed in a mexican prison. the father says this recovery process has been difficult and it's going to take a long time. listen to him last night on o'reilly. >> he said not doing real great right now physically. physically great. but mentally i think we're
going to have to take a break for a second. >> it's a scary situation. he doesn't want to bring, you know, any danger on to his family or himself in the future. it's a tough situation down there. because, you know, you are dealing with quaws sigh authoritative people and you are dealing with the mexican authorities and so you are not sure who you are really dealing with. >> it's pretty amazing that he spent five months. you would think that the u.s. government would be on this in 20 minutes. we have a very close relationship with mexico. we do an awful lot for the mexican government. and, yet, if it weren't for fox, and a couple other -- mostly fox publicizing this. he probably would still be there. they did nothing. >> clayton: that's what struck me initially about it we have a close relationship with them. meetings an are a regular basis. you can't pick up a phone and
do something about this. until one com decides making noise about this and gets the ball rolling on this. even afterwards the state department hasn't called to check on him. see how the family is doing. congressman ralph layton from florida has called. no calls from the federal government, no one. >> that's surprising. it's so easy to check on him. obviously his recovery is going to be a long time for his ordeal. not necessarily his physical scars but emotional ones. he had ptsd and being trapped in this mexican prison not knowing day in or day out if you were ever going to get out, if you were going to get out alive. that's a notorious prison where they hold a lot of the members of the drug cartels. he is, you know, emotionally still struggling according -- >> they threatened to behead him, he said. they deeply mistreated him. it's an outrage not just against him and his family but against his country. we ought to say something about it as a nation. >> more on that coming up. >> postal service business --
>> we told you about the journal news newspaper responding to the recent backlash publishing the name and addresses of gun permit owners. the paper's president janet hasan says this. it reads, quote: we believe the law is clear that this is public information and the residents of putnam county are entitled to see it. we are troubled that they switched their position since we first requested the information. now even former criminals are saying that data released could be highly useful to
thieves. former nypd detective joins us with insights as to why this information could be dangerous. harry, thanks a lot for coming on. >> thanks for having me. >> what's the point of releasing this, do you think? >> i think it's basically for their own political agenda. definitely antigun media. i guess they think they can release this information and give the names of the addresses of these people that they can shame these people into actually being gun owners. >> aren't these the people you shouldn't worry about. they went through every step to. are they the once we should be worried about. >> you shouldn't be worried about these people. you are worried about the typical bad guy out there with gahanna. because of what happened in connecticut, what they are going to do now is use, this all right, to further their own agenda. so, therefore, they are going to try to demagogue legitimate gun owners in this country. >> so this seems like a disincentive to registering your firearms. if i buy a gun in new york i
say i guess i should register this and i see the journal news releasing the names of people who do makes me not want to follow the law. >> it might be. but then again you are breaking the law. you want to be a legitimate law abiding citizen. so you are going to follow the law. what this is going to do is this is going to make these people targets to criminals. i was a cop on the street in new york city for 26 years. okay? bad guys are not afraid to go to a home where there is a gun. you know, when i was in my prime 6'4", 225 pounds. solid, the bad guys weren't afraid of me. they are not going be afraid of a civilian. the amount of money the bad guy with get on the street is a lot of incentive for him. instead of going down south and buying guns at a gun show, all right? i have got a whole list of names and addresses where there is guns now. so, i'm going to hit those locations and i will be able to go and get those guns and then sell them on the street. >> why in the world would the
county give this information to the newspaper? >> well, you know, i'm hearing that this is completely legal to do, you know. but it's a complete disregard for the lives of these people and their families. can you imagine, right, if you are a working family. the mother and father are away at work during the day. a burglar comes into the house. they can't find the gun let's waited until somebody comes home. all right? now your child comes home from school early and has a key to the house, goes in and surprised by a burglar who is then confronts that child to where the gun is in the house? i mean, something very terrible could happen here. and i hope this newspaper is very well aware of that because somebody can actually be killed or seriously injured as a result of their actions. >> how do you think the publishers and editors would feel if their addresses are published. >> i don't think they would like it at all. i think that's what the nra should do. the nra should publish their names and their addresses in their monthly magazine so they can feel exactly what it is
like, you know, to have that information put out there. >> do you think they would like it. >> they would hate it. >> of course they would. that's the best idea i have heard all day. harry haulk. nypd, thanks a lot. >> thanks a lot. the streets are packed with homeless people. how far and why are they there? more to the point are they dangerous? we ask dr. keith ablow coming up. did miley sirus already walk down the aisle? we have got the picture that has hollywood buzzing this morning. let's give thanks -
for an idea. a grand idea called america. the idea that if you work hard, if you have a dream, if you work with your neighbors... you can do most anything. this led to other ideas like lerty and rock 'n' roll. to free markets, free enterprise, and free refills. it put a man on the moon and a phone in your pocket. our country's gone through a lot over the centuries and a half. but this idea isn't fragile.
>> 22 minutes after the hour. time for quick headlines. the struggling u.s. postal office is said to be losing $25 million every day. and it could potentially run out of money in just nine months. the agency hopes the new congress can help as it's defaulting on $11 billion in treasury payments and cannot borrow any more money. and an already bad flu season is shaping up to be the worse in a decade. cbc says 2 states are reporting a high number of flu cases usually not seen until later in the season and the
peak is nowhere in sight. doctors say the best defense is getting the flu sack seen. let's go over to clayton. >> you already get yours? >> i did. >> you think you did? >> i don't remember. >> you don't remember having a needle shoved in your arm? >> no. it happens so often. >> i will administer you one later in the show. remember this photo that was all over the press a few weeks ago. homeless woman charged with murder after killing a stranger by pushing him on to the subway tracks. the history of mental illness and she is not alone according to mental illness policy organization. 11,000 of new york city's homeless adults suffer from some some of mental illness. 3300 of them are potentially violent. why aren't people getting the help they need? here to weigh in on this is is a number of our fox news a team psychiatrists dr. keith ablow. good to he so you this morning. >> good to he see you. >> what's going on here? why are these folks not being treated? >> it's a big problem. number one, back in the 1970s we decided we weren't going to have state mental hospitals in the same numbers that we had
before. we thought that was warehousing people. not much consideration was given to how we would treat them effectively. and so these folks hit the streets. some of them clustered around state mental hospitals or the grounds of those. system clustered around outpatient mental health centers. coincident with that by the way we have turned our mental healthcare system over to third party insurers who play a shell game with it basically right now you have to be either suicidal or homicidal and say it and refuse to retract it in order to get admitted to a hospital. otherwise you will be told to hit the streets. >> it's it the saying it or the verbalizing it that gets me. these folks don't know they have a mental illness number one. their brain can't regulate the amount of chemicals or let them know they have a mental illness. unless someone is aware of it. nothing is going to happen.
absolutely. even if you are aware of it. if you go to it the emergency room. they have been so indoctrinated. if you don't insist that you are going to take your life or take someone else's life and mean it and refuse to retract it they will say hey, listen. that doesn't qualify for admission. you're contracting for safety. >> that almost sounds to me sane. that doesn't sound like mental illness. >> you have to be literally that in touch with with the fact that you are sick and also once you get there if you are discouraged from seeking the kind of care. new york has kendra's law which allows for the outpatient treatment, and forced outpatient treatment of some people who are thought to be at risk for bad events because they are mentally ill. that law needs to be beefed up. but also we need to build or make accessible more inpatient treatment for these mentally ill folks.
i think if you are depressed or psychotic and you go to the emergency room for help and you say i'm also homeless, that should lead to you being offered inpatient treatment. that's enough do you think we are too tentative about admitting into in the hospital. >> too tentative? we have a fortress mentality. we won't reach into our pockets and insurance companies won't to get somebody a bed where they will be safe behind a locked door when they want. even if they want it, we create a fortress mentality to keep them out to save money. and then we see what happens with appear individual like that who is yelling and screaming and shoves someone in the middle of a subway track in the middle of manhattan. thank you for joining us this morning. interesting perspective. >> all right, c thanks. >> you can spot the difference in this photo democratic congresswoman it's like highlights magazine. how about now? extra folks added in there should the government be photo
shopping history? boat show into new york city. angela earhardt is there she is testing her sea legs. see more of her sea legs in just a moment. ahoy, captain. at a dry cleaner, we replaced people with a machine. what? customers didn't like it. so why do banks do it? hello? hello?! if your bank doesn't let you talk to a real person 24/7, you need an ally. hello? ally bank. your money needs an ally.
>> and members of congress are set to get a pay raise this year. [audience booing] >> isn't that like fixing a plumber for fixing a toilet he blocked up in the first place? [ laughter ] >> tucker, what you will come to learn is that clayton doesn't always find our jay lenos funny. >> that was good. >> that was good. >> that was an apt analogy. >> chuck our floor manager chuckled at that. much is made. i remember us slamming the iranian government on the show for adding in. remember that missile launch they added in where they photo shopped in extra missiles to show they actually launched them. they photo shopped in extra missiles. this is what we did. kind of like what the federal government has done over the past few days and nancy pelosi will be releasing this class photo of all the new congresswomen who have been members who are now the new members of this new
congressional al on the left-hand side is the real photo. that's really who showed up all of the female lawmakers of this historic class. >> that's the associated press photo that was taken during this class photo. and then on the right. >> cast your eyes up to the top steps of the photo and you see four lawmakers added there. >> photo shopped in. >> photo shopped in. they were late to the picture. so they were not actually part of the real picture. so, nancy pelosi had them added later on. >> because we have a lot of sway here on "fox & friends." we actually then, we added our own class photo if you can see there. can you see if we zoom in the "fox & friends" cast. i think there is bill o'reilly is in there. there is some other folks in there you see steve doocy and gretchen carlson in there, too. >> there is tucker. >> tucker you are right there. >> it's a huge improvement by the way. >> it really is. is this fair game? you can just.
>> i love it it it's totally soviet for one thing, adding and subtracting people. if you can add people can you take people away. people who displease mrs. pelosi? >> scrubbed from history. >> she was asked about this and defended it as a reflection of what actually happened and i'm quoting it was very cold outside. >> to her defense as many people argued in john boehner's defense it's like herding cats in congress to get all these people together. have you ever tried to photograph a child? i liken congress to children get one photo not blurry of your child runs around. imagine trying to get 70 people to stand on the steps in freezing cold temperatures. >> it's surprising. nancy pelosi whatever you think of her are good at that. people are terrified of. she got her caucus to vote for obama care and a lot of them lost their jobs. >> be here at 2:00 p.m. with your best jacket.
>> 61 democratic congresswomen, it's the most -- highest number ever. she wanted to memorialize it but four of them were late. >> so forever they will be photo shopped in the back. it's a pretty good photo shop job. because it looks like they are there. >> why don't do you this for the votes. y i didn't actually vote for that because i couldn't be on time i would like to vote and add. >> photo shop in your vote. i like that. make an app. >> let us know what you think about it firstname.lastname@example.org. you think it's unseemly for them to have photo shopped in or is that the digital age we are living in where can you do that later? >> meanwhile do your headlines now. >> i photo shopped your head on so fee a -- >> thank you. >> my personal collection. >> thank you. let's get to your headlines right now. attacks on the ground and in the air on syrian rebel post in neighborhoods surrounding the capital there.

>> alisyn: blame continue on the alcohol. that's what five inmates at the state correctional facility are doing in a lawsuit against several beer and wine companies. they say the convicts are seeking nearly $1 billion in damages. will their complaint hold up in court for a fair and balanced legal debate now this is interesting case.
rebekah. i know you think their claims are absurd. why? >> add suffered. first of all procedurally they make no sense. if they wanted to claim their crimes were related to the alcohol. they needed to bring that up properly in the criminal aspect of the cases. that could be possibly a mitigating factor in their sentencing. there are so many requirements alleged alcohol affected you while committing a crime. if they are claiming it had something to do with addictive behavior. it's outrageous. they are representing themselves. >> the first of all the fact that you are representing yourself pro se fruitful as somebody who has. we are society of labels. warning labels, tobacco. alcohol has its own warning labels. the question is whether or not a warning label is on the bottle, will it change somebody's ability or decision making? in whether they are going to
drink. i'm glad you brought up tobacco. i want to challenge you. yes it sounds absurd on its face. these five guys were drunk. they got into trouble and they are going to sue for a billion dollars. let's remember it was the tobacco companies that settled for billions of dollars because their product, it turned out was addictive and they hadn't labeled it properly. does the alcohol industry need to learn a lesson from this somehow? >> okay. that was a separate and distinct. the addiction of tobacco and the addiction of alcohol still has nothing to do with their criminal activity if it wasn't alleged at the point of trial. >> has to be alleged tamara. if you are going to cut me off. tamara, i'm a criminal defense attorney as well. >> hold on. >> i would like to finish my point. >> does it have merit? >> no. if it had merit, the judge and the jury at the time of the trial for the crime would have to see whether it has merit. they are there to determine that there is very clear laws on the books regarding
intoxication and mitigation regarding the men's real estate a you need to commit a crime. all of these men have committed manslaughter, rape and higher felonies than that. >> go ahead. >> it doesn't necessarily matter what the crime is we're talking about two separate issues. we are talking about whether or not the tobacco industry and really i think that the fact that these are criminals that are making this allegation. it does kind of minimize the strength of the case. but really the deeper issue is whether or not the alcohol companies should put warning labels on there that this kind of behavior will -- could lead to alcohol -- >> no it's not. >> it also is legislation. >> this is not a case that should be brought in the courthouse. >> may i finish i gave u. the sam respect. so it is legislation but, remember, we he have separate powers. so, the courts can also say and just like you mentioned with tobacco, the tobacco settlement for a few hundred billion dollars, that was something recently because
tobacco is addictive. >> right, those are for damages people suffered. copd. elm if a seem matchett there are no damages other than crimes that they claim. >> it's an addiction. >> they're not claiming they were hurt. they are claiming they committed crimes as a result of it. it goes back to their criminal case. >> ladies, we have to leave it there honestly this case is deeper than we thought of these five crazy convicts. thanks for debating it great job. lawmakers say the cia told them one thing about usama bin laden raid and a different story to the film makers behind that controversial film 0 darr 30. they want to know which story is real. and one grocery store owner could have sold his business for millions. instead he gave it away free to his employees. why did he do that? ..yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking.

wow. i'm -- looking at the "new york post" cover which is the first thing i do 365 days a year, puts me in a good mood every single time. >> you never know what you are going to find. >> another drink for the man in 23 c taped -- it's fantastic. >> they have such funny names as you know in the "new york post." i think they called him like a boozed up bozo or something. >> no charges are filed. he is spitting on people. yelling at people. we will talk more about this. >> i think he was punished it looks like. >> we will tell you the back story of how that all happened. >> he liked it. you never know. >> story caught so much of your attention the journal news outside of new york city. it covers three counties. and they decided in light of the new town, connecticut tragedy, to publish the names and addresses of local gun owners, legal, legal pistol permit owners. now that they have done this there has been a lot of blow back and outcry including from criminals who have come
forward to say how much easier a list like this would have made their jobs when they were robbing homes. soosm have argued and tried to make the case that it's okay for them to publish the names and addresses first of all it's public information and they have likened them to sex offender. those sex offender registries available this isn't bad at all. it's like sex offenders. you are comparing me to a sex offender because i have gone through the legal outlets to get a registered gun and keep it in my home to protect myself that's absurd. >> that's a stupid comparison. i would love the name and address of anybody who made it by the way these are the are exactly the people you shouldn't worry about. these are the people who should have firearms. these are the people who have gone through every legal step to register these guns. how many crimes are committed by this group of people? none, basically. >> that's a great point. this is what i think was missing from this whole thing was any sort of journalism. when you print the names and addresses of these individuals
just willy-nilly with no information about it, wouldn't it be nice to know, statistically if they did their job as journalists for this newspaper well, in this particular neighborhood, because of the number of registered guns there is less crime or there is more crime in this particularod. or taken the numbers and in a different way and provided some journalist i can context to the community. >> that would have been helpful. why the way we were just showing there of the decision makers, the editor of the newspaper and publisher of the newspaper. tucker, to counter your point, adam lanza's mother was a legal gun owner. >> right. she hurt not a single person. her mentally ill son did. that is exactly the point. it's the person who commits the crime not the firearm. the firearm is mere live a fool. again, the number of people who go through the steps to legally register firearms who wind up committing violent crimes is basically nil. so focus on the people who are committing the crimes.
the risk to the rest of us. >> now those individuals who may come into your home and burglarize your home the very people you are trying to protect yourself from when you have a registered gun in the home is put in jeopardy he a former burglar was on greta show the other night and talked about this very same issue saying this will lead to more burglaries, listen. >> one of the things burglars look for when they go into a house is guns. it's so easy to sell guns and make cash. they always look for them. now that this interactive map suspect and the issue is such a strong issue, every criminal in those two county in the surrounding area is aware of it. they are going to be checking out this map. they will be casing the neighborhood. there is a couple of ways to find out if the homeowners are home or not. so you are going to see in the few weeks several burglaries or more occur in this area. there are other criminals have come forward to say this looks like it would have been a gold mine to them.
which homes had guns and didn't. they would hit the ones that didn't and now there is a road map for them. >> post the ones with large amounts of cash at home. >> find us at twitter at ff weekend as well. 0 darr 30. now they are demanding answers from the spy agency. >> james rosen joins us live from washington with the latest on this story. james? >> hey, james. >> tucker, alli and clayton. good morning. hollywood producers love free publicity for their movies not usually this kind. at issue imeb is the $20 million espionage thriller 0 darr 30 that resulted in the killing of usama bin laden. it's already caused controversy because of the cooperation the director including the alleged provision of classified material.
now some lawmakers are upset over the film showing waterboarding and enhanced interrogation techniques deemed by many to be torture as one of the factors that help lead to usama bin laden's compound in pakistan. michael more relevant told agency employees last month that such techniques were not the key to finding bin laden that the film created a false impression in that regard. yet more relevant also told employees that such techniques did help uncover, quote, some of the intelligence that was used to track the al qaeda learned. so, on new year's eve, three leading senators on the intelligence and armed services committees, two democrats and a republican wrote to more relevant asking, quote: in regards to the bin laden operation. what information was acquired from cia detainees subjected to enhanced interrogation techniques? when was this information provided? prior to? during? or after the detainee was subjected to the cia's enhanced interrogation techniques? if after, how long after? senator saxby chambliss, the
ranking republican on the republic committee called all of this odd. what's next chambliss asked in a statement yesterday. bourn thrilling or 24? 24? it also seems fruitless for the intelligent committee to demand more information from the cia about detention and interrogation program several weeks after the committee voted out its final report on the program. another strain of controversy involved the cia analyst portrayed in this movie by jessica chase stain. the analyst was passed over for an internal promotion at cia. did you guys see this movie? >> not yet. >> no. >> i want to. >> i would like to see senate inquiry into the bourn thrilling and wondering by the latest bowrnl fill was so bad. can we get on that? >> that demands further scrutiny from our lawmakers. i love saxby chambliss' reference to 24. shouldn't it have been homeland just to keep current. >> yes. you make a great point. i'm here to help. >> thanks, james. >> all right. thank you. let's get to your headlines

a chicago jail and climbed down 20 stories with a rope made of bed sheets are back behind bars this morning. kenneth conley picked up nearly three weeks after the deadly escape within steps of police headquarters. weighs wearing a disguise and walking with lake lila campground. police caught him after he tried pushing one of the officers and making a run for it. his partner joseph banks was caught to days after the escape. those are your headlines. there. >> all right. thanks, alisyn. let's check in with maria molina. >> good morning. good to see you. good morning, everyone. today we are tracking pretty chilly temperatures early this morning. over the next several days we will start to see a shift in the weather pattern where temperatures are going to start to be a little bit above what's typical for the month of january. good news for many people across the country. otherwise for today we are actually going to be seeing some areas of snowfall. >> we have been seeing that overnight hours in upstate new york. most of that not really accumulating. it's our next system that will be producing a little bit of
interior snow along interior sections of the northeast. that's across the plains producing snow in cens and parts of missouri and arkansas. otherwise a brand new storm system out across portions of the pacific northwest. starting to bring rain in seattle. areas of washington will bring some snow. it will remain settled out here over the next several days and continue to see that rain, that snow and even that wind across places in the northwest. not good news for you guys. otherwise, i had temperatures, 44 in seattle. otherwise here in new york city, 37 degrees will be our high temperature. back to you guys. >> thanks so much. let's talk about one particular furniture store this morning that's making headlines because any time you bring up an individual, the head of a company, and you are in the government and you bring them to a state of the union address. you put them up there in the balcony and you hold them up as an example economic recovery and then they suddenly go out of business, chances are there is going to get some scrutiny as to why you went out of business now. the c., the head of a furniture company in north
carolina is now out of business. they were touted by the obama administration as a sign of american made goods that we can bring jobs back to the united states. they are an example of it. >> exactly one year ago this is what the president said. these are ceos who take pride in hiring people here in america. bruce cochran's family had manufactured furniture in north carolina for five generations. he came home and started a new company. lincolnton turn turf which operates out of the old family factories that had been shut down. he has rehired many of the former workers from his family business. >> now they are shutting their doors, sadly. the ceo is closing down. you heard after five generations or whatever the president just said because they say they can't compete with foreign companies. >> should have had a wind form or algae company or be making fuel cells or some other favored green technology that the government is now subsidizing and he would be in business. >> this is an example though
just based on the economic conditions there wasn't any stimulus money given to them. any green money given to them like solyndra as far as we know. the ceo says we didn't get enough orders. we thought we could get more orders. we thought we could put the made in america stamp here at home. i don't know who is to blame here. it's a condition of all of these companies having to ship. get lower cost goods from overseas. in this country we wanted cheaper computers. that's why del has flatts here. that's why we get cheaper iphones and ipads. if they were here, the cost would go up. that's simple economics. >> again, the story is all the companies who haven't had to oversend their workers overseas because they are receiving handouts from the federal government in some cases in exthat foing for campaign contributions the wind farm industry got more money in this last bill. >> for the victims of sandy. they snuck some of that pork in. it is a problem. we want low priced goods but we want american jobs.
somehow those it's hard to do both of them. sometimes we have had system struggling companies when we say they are all american made then their sales boost. if they tout that and trumpet it sometimes people patron nice this store. with this one it went under. >> sad news. coming up on the show. one state senator now saying is he going to fight until hell freezes over stop this newspaper from publishing another county's list of gun permits of owners, he joins us next. >> imagine this guy sitting next to you on an airplane. he was duct taped for his seat for being too drunk. was this the best way to calm him down or most amusing? ♪

second amendment people coming together saying genus, what the hell are you doing you? are putting our communities at risk. created a christmas shopping list for criminals like they have testified to. it's really a bone headed maneuver. >> if crimes result as a result of this information being disseminated, if houses are burglar rides, the guns stolen in the commission of a imcrew. could the newspaper be held accountable for that? >> the west chester county police benevolent association said if any of our 25,000 members, many of which live in my district are harmed or their families are harmed, that that community is going to hold the journal news accountable. i hope that it doesn't happen. but we he have seen in other states when similar actions have been taken, that people have been hurt. and we saw just a couple weeks back what happens when you give a little bit of leeway. the fact that they created interactive map. somebody can click on that map, link it with google earth and be on somebody's doorstep in less than 30 seconds. >> pretty over the top. >> good to hear. >> thank you.

announcement in september. >> what exactly is is that plan? a lot of people at home probably thinking how do i suddenly take ownership of a company? how exactly does that work? did someone show up in my office one day with a check? do i get a corner office? how does all of this unfold? >> well, what happens is it's done through what's called esop, employee stock ownership plan. instead of the employees trying to take out a loan and buy the business, really the owners they get to sell the company to the company itself. the company buys itself and hands the stock options to the employees that's divided out it overtime based on seniority and pay but everyone who meets the qualifications gets to be a part owner in the company. >> now you feel that there is an ownership quality at the beginning of this year now, all of these 400 employees have an ownership in the

run off water a pollutant. but do you have any idea what the e.p.a.'s real rationale for this was? >> well, i think first of all what they said in court is they acknowledge that what they put in this permit to regulate was water when which is not a pollutant. what they then argued was well it helps us get not good enough. regulate this like pollutant you don't have the authority to do that end of case. you asked what were they trying to do? first of all they were trying to get the legal ability to bootstrap non-pollutants to get at pollutants, which, in turn, would have given them a massive beach head in local land use and the ability to have a seat at the table when your local county is making decisions about zoning and storm water and things like that. which would have put the e.p.a. in every economic development decision everywhere in the country. or at least given them the ability to get there.
>> right. >> this is a big win in pushing them back. >> it's a big win to you. you saw this as overreach and slippery slope as you just speltd out how had they been able to win this the sky was the limit. >> right. >> play out that scenario. how far would it have gone? >> well, let me tell what you it would look like in the real world. my client was the department of trfings in transportation in virginia. our co-plaintiff was the board of supervisors of fairfax county. vdot owns road. we don't own other land. what they're trying to too is make us stop the flow of water. cut it by half into this creek. and to do that we would have had to condemn people's houses and businesses near the road. we would have had to knock those houses down. of course we would have evicted them and plant grass. so the water will soak into the earth instead of flow into the creek and build retaining
pools and things like that. that's what it looks like in the real world and all of this would have cost virginia and fairfax county over $300 million. >> what they said was that they were -- what the e.p.a. said was that they were trying to get at the problem sediment as a way to get at the problem with sediment was through rainwater. so, did -- >> -- i have a better idea. why don't you get at the problem of settlement by getting at sediment. it is supposed to keep water clean. treating it like it's a pollutant and pollutant is completely asinine under the clean water act and the judge agreed. he was very elm emphatic in this ruling. >> ken cuccinelli you won and you have kept the e.p.a. at bay, no pun intended in terms of water in virginia. >> no pun intended. >> thanks so much for coming in to explain it to us. >> glad to do it. >> coming up, the world's best selling car just revealed and the topic might surprise you.

drew criticism when he cancelled the vote on the full 60 billion-dollar aid package. well they broke out a chicago jail and they climbed down rope made of bed sheets. they are both back behind bars kenneth conley picked up three weeks after the daring escape police headquarters. he was wearing a disguise and walking with a limp. police caught him after he tried pushing one of the officers and making a run for it his partner, joseph banks was caught two days after the escape. so imagine being told your flight is delayed because your pilot is drunk. that happened to 53 passengers at the minneapolis saint paul airport after 48-year-old coal byron christian sen was pulled off of an american eagle flight in handcuffs. police boarded the plane and gave christianson a breathalyzer test after witnesses said he smelled like alcohol. >> i'm glad that they caught him. it's scary to think of pilots getting away with stuff that i
mean, the fact that he was in the only intoxicated but probably hadn't slept much either. >> i'm glad i wasn't on that flight. >> christensen is now suspended and the airline is investigating. well, this unlikely visitor not only showing up in a california woman's backyard,. >> big foot? >> but it got -- its antlers stuck and tangled in a tarp somehow. well, the sheriff's department says it's not trained for rescuing animals that large and they would have to put it down. that was not okay with the woman who found it. >> do not want the deer destroyed. he wont it the rescued. is he a beautiful trophy buck. >> they want it mounted on their wall. >> we're told the california fish and game went out to rescue the buck. >> we're hoping that's a happy ending. >> you would have to think that would happen more often. those things are pointy. get caught on a lot of things and they are everywhere. i live in the city of washington in the district of
columbia we have deer in our front yard all the time. we live them unmolested we don't hang sheets out. >> you don't hang sheets on out to get holes on a regular basis. maria molina is in for rick reichmuth. good morning, everyone. today we are tracking pretty chilly temperatures. feeling like january out there head out the door 22 degrees. 11 degrees in minneapolis. only 2 a in rapid city. a little bit better across places in the new york city where you are seeing current temperature at 32 degrees. 25 in raleigh, california. very chilly start to the day for you guys out there. otherwise, as far as precipitation goes in the northeast, not really seeing a whole lot of that for today we have had a couple of snow showers here and there across places across the lake. not seeing much accumulation. that's over with we will have snowfall as we head into tomorrow morning and that's all because of our next storm system that is a relatively weak system. we're not expecting to see really any accumulating
snowfall right now we have some snow coming out across places in missouri and some of that is actually coming down in the form of sleet or even freezing rain. so please be careful on the roadways. south of that storm where temperatures are too warm for snow we are seeing areas of rain across southern arkansas and widespread areas of rain and thunderstorms across places in louisiana. otherwise, the pacific northwest, brand new storm system arriving producing some areas of rain. higher elevations across the washington cascades. we'll be seeing some snowfall. some of you have guys could actually see over a foot of it we will continue to see unsettled weather not just for today out here as we head into sunday and other the next several days as well. you are going it continue to see that rain, that wind, and also basically that snowfall falling across the mountains. otherwise, quickly you guys, i want to mention as we head into the later half of next week, we're going to see a warm up in places across the south and northeast. it's january, above average temperatures still very chilly. >> all right. thanks so much, maria. check back later with you.
first back. >> we want to talk to you quite a few waives into christmas and beyond this controversy continues. we are talking about what the journal news did up there in -- up in northern new york. and publishing the names of all registered gun owners and their addresses on a map saying it was a public service. that the neighborhood had a right to know all of this public information and that we wanted to put it in black and white so everyone could see it. they are going to go further with this. they are going to do more of this. what's your response? >> it's recklessly irresponsible. the question is what service is being provided to tell people who owns a gun and who doesn't? have you had people already that i have seen this morning talking about this as an invitation to burglars saying this home may have an armed citizen behind it. this one doesn't. it's an easy knock off. or this one might be a target if you need guns. and just wait until the people aren't home. i think the bigger issue is
what is the real agenda. and i think maybe the way to deal with this is to have somebody who has the capability and the time to get the names of the publisher, the editors, all of the reporters and go to nexus lexus and get extraordinary lestlesz of information that is available to the public. how much did their mortgage cost? how much taxes did they pay on their house? their home address? list it would google maps. give every bit of information. divorce records if they have had one. put it all out there on the internet and ask them how do you like this? are you having a good time letting everybody have your information for no particular purpose? >> alisyn: that would be extremely uneleventh. >> why wouldn't they like it? if it's okay to publish other people's information. then let's all have the same salt applied. >> that is one suggestion. greg ball a new york state senator had another suggestion. he had called for a boycotting of the newspaper and of their advertisers. obviously hit people in the pocketbook. >> yeah. >> that makes them pay attention. here was his rationale earlier
on "fox & friends." >> it's a bone headed move. it's a malicious slap in the face. people have to realize that these are folks obeying the law. they have done everything right. the journal news has never created interactive list of three degree sexual predators. didn't create a list of illegal firearm purchases or create haze tri of illegal firearm purchases from. my perspective it's unwarranted violation of privacy. that's an exemption under the request. and also the request that somebody's lives at risk. talking about public safety. what's going to happen over the next couple days is that law enforcement officials from across the state are coming together to demand that the journal news rescind their actions. and that we move forward legislatively. this isn't a second amendment issue. this is a privacy issue. >> totally exactly right. the senator is on target. frankly, if the paper wants to publish something. why not publish a list of all the people written hot checks. publish a list of all the fathers behind in child support payments. those are people who are broken laws. what they're publish something a list of people who have obeyed the law. is it somehow now
unfashionable to obey the law? it's s. it somehow so outrage just to this editor that some people might decide to protect themselves? >> you know the answer. >> i do. >> the answer is that most journalists consider guns scary. and basically illegitimate. the second amendment notwithstanding. >> david gregory who ill ely holds up a clip on meet the press a couple of sundays ago didn't get charged even though it's illegal to have that in d.c. where he held it up. his children go to the same school that the president's children go to. they have 11 armed guards at the school. they are applying or advertising for a 12th armed guard. so here's the point. why is it perfectly okay for some journalist' kid to go to a school that is protected by heavily armed people but somebody else's kid is supposed to go to a school that doesn't have an armed guard. >> do you think congress would live by its own laws if a new assault weapons is past. banning different kinds of
magazines and weapons. would congress apply those restrictions to its own body guards. >> of course it wouldn't. i always have a problem when people use the problem assault weapon. because every weapon is an assault weapon. a pencil in the hands of an aggressor is an assault weapon if it's slammed into the side of your neck. and the idea that something looks scary and therefore makes it more dangerous is is absurd. a lot of the more traditional rifles have a lot more fire power than the so-called assault rifles that everybody wants to ban. it's the i had gross of people idiocy of people who know so little about firearms afraid of them because of thinking ignorance. >> move on to more of a productive note. >> that wasn't productive? gee. i. >> i enjoyed it. >> i did too. >> problem solving. what is the answer? >> well, the answer is that people behave. i know that sounds a little simplistic. look, we are not going to solve every crazy person by taking guns away from the people who aren't crazy.
we had more people murdered by hammers last year than murdered by guns. did you think about that? are we going to have a ban on hammers? there is a lot of carpenters and even just fix it uppers yourself who need a hammer. >> or use my son he has nerf hammer he is 2. >> you never know. think about that we cannot protect everybody from everything all the time. what we do need to do is address the things we can. don't let guns get in the hands of crazy people. >> how? >> first ofll, if you know somebody is crazy, they may need to have an institutionalization. you know, we have mainstreamed everybody and put them on the streets. and it's not been the smartest strategy. i know it sounds more humane to not institutionalize people. some people need to be for their own protection and that of others. put in a place where they can be carefully supervised. because they can't function in society. >> that's part of what the journal news said. we actually heard from viewers
over the past couple of weekends about. this they said i would like to know if my neighbors had guns. wouldn't you like to know if there was an adam lanza in your neighborhood who had access to a gun? that was a question some of our viewers raised. >> here is the problem. just the fact that you have gun in your house doesn't mean have you access. most of us who have firearms have gun safes. we don't leave them laying around like a mexican drug lord. the nonsense that a gun owner is irresponsible i take take exception to that i was far more afraid of my father any ever touching that gun without permission than i was of the gun. >> take a look at the number of violent crimes committed by legal gun owners and it's basically none. >> yeah. >> so this is just irrelevant to the crimes that are committed in this country. it has no bearing on them at all. >> okay. >> stick around we have a lot more to talk to you about. >> maybe even productive. >> that was very productive. newly sworn in republican

so-called rinos as they call them. these republicans who believe in civil rights again and again. >> i think that it's tcontinue a nation. if you really think about where we are, we have the most diverse freshman class in the senate. perhaps in its century. >> the way we get beyond it is recognize we have an opportunity to inspire young folks. i think about kids coming up in the same situation i came up in. we can talk to those kids about the fact that this country the american dream is alive. >> what does that even mean? governor huckabee is back with us now. >> does that mean senator scott doesn't like black people? >> why does anybody take the naacp offended anymore. >> i'm highly aoffend they'd would make those comments because he obviously doesn't know tim scott. do i know tim scott. i have known him for a number of years. he is remarkable person. his story is one of the greatest american stories that
we have in america today. for him to be in the u.s. senate is a great testment as who we are. grew up without a father and manager of chick-fil-a restaurant noticed he would come every day and buy fries as a teenager. he said how come that's all you buy? he he said because that's all i can afford. the manager befriended him. started becoming his mentor and introduced him to a spiritual life brought him to god. this is a kid who who would have been a gang member. one of the most remarkable stories to. say he doesn't represent the best of mercury find that appalling. >> what's at play here if that's the argument? is it that no is it this idea or stereotype if you are a minority you couldn't be a republican? what's going on here? >> i don't even understand that. i got 4 the% of the african-american vote in my state when i ran for re-election as governor. you hear very little about
votes being given to republicans. the reason is is because if the republicans were to give a real message it's a message it's about the america to come crazy of schools. rather than forcing your kid to a school that doesn't work. giving every kid regardless of his color the opportunity to dream his dream and live in a neighborhood he wants to rather than being told this is a government apartment and this is the only place you can live. it's about being able to put on your table whatever food you want, rather than having the government say here is your cheese this month, this is all you get. we ought to inspire every kid in america to dream his own dreams and live his own life. that's what tim scott represents. it's a wonderful example of great civil rides to say your color doesn't keep you where you started. for a lot of us who grew up poor the idea of america is that you don't have to stay where you started. you can't help where you started, you can dog on sure have a difference where you
end up. >> sometimes we have got to know where to leave it. that was so well said we're not going to say anything else, governor. >> that was productive. >> was that productive? >> i will actually qualify that as productive. >> who is coming up on your show tonight. >> we have a great american story of laura and young man saw when he was 11 years old on the streets of new york she developed a 20 year relationship. it's a powerful story that we're going to have tonight. a lot more east coast band is going to be with us wronging the house. is, you know, from soup to nuts, we have got it covered tonight. >> huckabee will:00 p.m. tonight. governor, great to see you. >> thanks. >> former congressman barney frank just retired from the house of representatives. it seems he is not ready to let go of capitol hill yet. >> isn't yoga just stretching becoming much more popular with children and being used as replacement for competitive sports. how wimpy can america get
before we roll over with all four paws in the air. >> come on, nothing wrong with yoga. reach one customer at a time? ♪ or help doctors turn billions of bytes of shared information... ♪ into a fifth anniversary of remission? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and services to help you solve it.
>> here with is quick headlines. barney frank telling devol patrick he would like to be considered as a fill oo-in for john kerry's senate seat. he said it would only be until special election held for the spot. no word yet from the governor. this may be a surprise but an american car is now the best selling vehicle in the world. ford focus was named number one out selling the toyota carolla. the compact car is especially popular in china which of course helped drive it to the top spot. >> well more than 20 million people across the country are doing yoga and now the zen trend is catching on with kids. but author, larry winget said more kids. >> it is is the wussification. grow a pair. we need to toughen up and
stand up for ourselves and learn to be a lot tougher than yoga is going to teach us to do all by ourselves i can guarantee you that. [ laughter ] so what happened to competitiveness and team building. let's ask the author of a nation of wimp and editor at large at psychology today. what is wrong with kids doing yoga? my 2-year-old son. my wife is a former yoga instructor. she lays out the yoga mat my son loves to do downward dog. what's wrong with that? >> yoga is generally speaking not an activity that kids grey up saying hey, mommy, i want to do yoga. what kids really need is to get out there and actively play. and play in ways of their own devising. and playing together in groups of kids. what yoga basically is is a way of disengaging from the world. it's great for adults. adults need it. they are overstressed.
kids need to learn how to engage with the world in a productive way. so running, gambling, jumping, hide, seek, tag. those are things kids need. and they build kids' brains. >> why not get them started young with that as you yourself just pointed out with adults being overstressed why not have them learn at a young age it's good to reflect and take a few moments to yourself and calm down? >> we're confusing a bunch of things here. it's not that kids don't need quiet play. they do need quiet play. and sitting with paints and puzzles are wonderful things for kids to do. but free play, actively being out in the park or playground running around is by far the best stress reduction method in the world for kids. untop of that, it does things that kids need. so, you have to think that what kids need to develop is different from what adults
need to reduce stress. so what does play do? well, within 30 minutes of actively being out there or running and tagging and playing and jumping, play turns on hundreds of genes in the brain. so it's building connections in the brain. it's doing really important things and spurring brain growth. what's happening during play. kids are engaging with other kids. they are learning how to solve problems. they are learning how to negotiate their differences. and one of the other things that happens. >> aren't they being violent, too? isn't that part of don't little boys need a way to hit one another in a structured manner? >> contact is important for kids. they like contact. but violence is a whole other issue. >> kids' version of violence just like punching each other. >> i raised two little boys. yeah, there were times in the back of the car when he they
were not moving when they would pummel each other and i thought neither of them might survive. there were times when i thought that. but no they were not vibrant. about balance and giving them structured play and maybe even doing -- in addition to structured i don't think yoga itself is going to wussify anybody. >> as the governor said it's the hardest activity he has ever done. >> well, for him it's going to be a very difficult balancing activity, of course. >> right. but you are saying as a supplement? >> certainly not if it takes the place of play. >> as we say here -- >> the book is a nation of wimps, thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on this. >> let us know how you feel about this.
friends at foxandfriends.com. is this the wussification of america or where do you stand on. this contorted. >> up next, you have taken a look at this week's paycheck. you now are just working as hard as before but for less money and you can thank washington's fiscal cliff deal for that. >> plus, it's a paddle palooza. paddle board something one of the hottest friends in fitness. ainsley getting lesson in that as you can see at the new york boat show. ♪ don't rock the boat, baby. campbell's healthy request soup lets you hear it... in your heart. [ basketball bouncing ] heart healthy. great taste. mmm... [ male announcer ] sounds good. it's amazing what soup can do.
>> well, let's see what's going on. congress approved some version of the fiscal tax bill which raises taxes on rich americans. president obama was determined to do this right away while there is some still rich americans left. [ laughter ] >> you know jay leno is right. that the fiscal cliff deal does raise it on whatever the top 2%. but, everybody's taxes who gets a paycheck are going up because the payroll tax break, expired on january 1st, so your payroll taxes go up from i think 4.6 to 6.6% now from your paycheck. >> not just because of that loopholes have been closed for deductions on people earning way below $450,000.
way below. to middle class level. the average person is going to pay more taxes. >> never on the table. the payroll tax was never on the table as part of the negotiations. our own griff jenkins has more on exactly how much we are going it pay. did you check your paycheck today? you may want to. every american for that matter. it's 2% less than it was last week. that's right u as part of the fiscal cliff the payroll tax rose from 4.2% to 6.2% today. it effects every working american. >> so, peter, what's all this mean? >> well, the last two years washington agreed to cut from 6.2% to 4.2% that cost the government will $100 billion a year in rev now so now the government has raised that back up. that is $100 billion to come out of consumer's pockets it
was put there to help stimulate the economy. everyone has agreed we have done it for two years and that's enough. the economy is growing okay so we can pull it back. you can't pull it back without having consequences. average income for worker in this country is $50,000 a year or so. so 2% of that is $1,000. there has been some independent analysis that shows that this increase in the payroll tax is going to cost the average worker 800 to $1,000 more a year. that's 800 to $1,000 less in income, $40 a week that might be very important to families that are still struggling. >> i'm a college student. he just graduated student loans. every penny counts. >> how do you feel about the fact that your paycheck is 2% less than it was last week. >> that sucks. it's terrible. >> >> that's awful. >> i can't believe it. >> i think it's pathetic that
congress can't get their act together. >> how do you feel about your paycheck being 2% less than it was last week. >> i will let you know when i look at it. >> congress really let us down. i'm willing to give that 2%, you know, in order to step up and make sure that we're taking care of what we need to take care of. >> actually, this was payday. and seen the statement yet. >> are you afraid to look. >> it's anxiety producing, yes. >> how do you feel about the fact that your paycheck is 2% less today than it was last week? >> it sucks. >> you didn't know that? >> no. >> you have got to take the bitter with the sweat. >> i'm surprised he couldn't find anyone. >> paycheck. fantastic. >> to be clear it sucks is not a policy position. >> do something about it. >> there is a better way to articulate it. >> maybe voting -- maybe getting rid of the people in
congress who do this on a regular basis or voting or maybe changing the way in which you vote. you saw the guy there with the pro-obama hat on. >> that's a thought. >> okay. one suggestion. >> anything else, tucker? >> it just seems to me that a ton of people voted and we got this. i mean, look, the truth is, they sold these tax increases as a tax on people you never met on the super rich. warren buffet is the only guy who is going to pay the tax. it turns out that was a lie. >> that one was always set to sun set. >> you never heard word one. you heard the president day after day rich people can pay more their fair share. >> we have been talking about it so we know you heard something. tell you what's been happening at this hour. survivor and target of arizona's mass shooting two years ago. former congresswoman gabby giffords paid a visit to newtown, connecticut as the community there is still reeling from last month's tragedy. mark kelly met with families of the victims to offer support. the couple also spoke with local leaders about gun
control and mental health issue awareness. >> the pharmacy responsible for the deadly meningitis outbreak is blaming its cleaning company for contaminated drug. the new england compounding company is demanding uni first pay for legal claims against them. it says it only cleaned the pharmacy once a month. it is no no way responsible for the contamination. 39 people died and 600 people got sick in that outbreak. take a look at this unbelievable picture taken on a flight from iceland to new york. that is a drunk passenger who had to be duct taped to his seat after he attacked some women, spit on passengers and ranted about the plane crashing. the man was reportedly incredibly drunk and he drank his duty free liquor. >> he drank all of it? >> then he became belligerent and abused other passengers. the other passengers had to get up to tape him down. he was arrested in new york but bizarrely he he was not charged because the other passengers would not for some
reason talk to police. i guess. >> no snitching. that's the code of iceland. [ laughter ] >> you can get drinks and snacks from them. what about buying marijuana from a vending machine? california scp medicine box wants to said up machines similar too this for recreational use for colorado and washington state. they're already used in some states to store and dispense medical marijuana. those are your headlines. what do you call if it bangs? coke won't pop out. you keep jimmying it. i bet this would not do anything. >> no they are going to stare there kind of looking at the machine. >> grooving out on the buttons. >> going to fall down any time soon. >> then order a pizza. >> very passive folk. >> maria molina is outside to tell us how the weather is looking today. >> hey, good morning, good to see you guys. good morning, everybody. it feels very january like out here. we actually had some visitors.
they'll actually barbara over there. her visit ever to new york city here on this chilly morning. and temperatures will be warming up a little bit as we head into the afternoon hours. high temperature here in new york city should reach 37 degrees right now. we are in the low 30's. out west, much colder though, minneapolis 23 degrees for your high temperature. that's pretty much as warm as it's going to get together. 57 for your high temperature in dallas, texas. so upper 50s out there. a little bit of a warm up compared to the last couple of days in tampa, florida, a nice, warm 72 degrees. wow, we can only dream about it here in new york city. otherwise, across portions of the plains, we actually have a brand new storm system. this one is relatively week weak though. we are not expecting significant a. further snow showers south just rain. this storm actually produced significant snowfall accumulations across parts of southwestern texas with some places seeing as much as 10 inches of snow. you guys in the studio that's actually more snow than places like chicago have seen so far. >> all right. thanks so much, marie a we
will check back a little bit later as that storm approaches. coming up on the show, we're going to have this because now our own ainsley earhardt is actually at the progressive new york boat show. she has cruised into town with all of these boats. it's the 10th, it's huge, it's massive, and it's been here in the biggest city in the world. it's also the biggest boat show in the world. >> but it's not all about boating. it's also about water sports like the suddenly extremely popular paddle boarding. >> ainsley earhardt is here to prove it. she is going to give us a lesson. hey, ainsley. >> we're trying, alisyn. i wish you were here to do this. hi, good to see you this, no. if you are in the business to buy a boat. you can come here and bring the kids because they are probably going to talk you into buying a paddle board as well and want to get the whole family out on the water. we are here with kim and karen. kim owns down under. tell me about down under what and what it is. >> it is is a waterboard business in connecticut. we are all about having fun on the water. getting people on the water, making it their experience successful. do kayaking and paddle
boarding and do surfing. >> karen is going to demonstrate for us a lot of gyms now are picking this up and take 45 minute classes she teaches telling you how to do this to learn to surf on land before you actually go in the water. >> this is fitness and karen is demonstrating she is swimming out to catch a wave she is going to pop up, hardest thing when you are surfing pop up and not fall in the water. we teach them out in connecticut you can learn to do this and catch a wave. >> that's great. higher percentage of success have people taking your class. >> absolutely. >> very hard. she said she did it it's hard. >> more chicagoing on the water. >> really? i can imagine. >> it's a great workout. what we're trying to do is make sure you have a lot of fun. if it's fun you will do it and get the workout and get the benefits look like a surfer chic. >> do you look great if you add to it the paddle, and in that process can you do this
as well. we add the paddle boarding to the surfing. the paddle board. got her hand at the top of the panel fully extended. the blade is facing away from her. paddle along the side of the board and bring the board again. that's your straight stroke. forward stroke make you go forward. and then if you want to turn a little bit. just push the water away from the board. okay. that's this stroke. try it on the water. thank you so much. teach us how to paddle board. >> she was teaching us earlier. >> i will say if i can do it, you can do it. >> so i'm going to demonstrate. >> come and sit on the side of the board here. >> all right. so this little groove in the center is put your legs around, this right? >> farther away the better. so i'm going to hand you a paddle. >> we need the paddle, that would be helpful. >> and then when you are ready you are going to come into a crouch and then up into a standing position with your paddle, okay. >> perfect.
>> all right. your hand goes on the handle all right. great. i'm going to go paddle boarding. back to you guys in the studio. >> we're waiting -- can someone push you in? >> if clayton were there, you would be in the drink right now. thank goodness he is not there, ainsley. >> we're getting him the drink in the next live shot from what i understand. that's coming up. >> our audio -- i guess they don't have a microphone on her right now. they have the boom mike in case she falls in. they are not that confident in her paddle boarding. >> she is learning a lesson. ainsley, you are doing great. >> they don't trust me that's why they didn't put a microphone there is a boom up here. they thought i might fall in. >> oh ye of little faith. >> that's awesome. we will check back in with you soon. >> coming up on the show, our founding fathers created the constitution. one law professor says in order to get the country back
>> it established our national government and fundamental laws and guaranteed us certain basic rights more than 200 years ago. has the u.s. constitution become outdated? georgetown university constitutional law professor lewis michael sideman says yes it has, constitutional attorney david rifkin disagrees. they both join us from washington. professor thanks for coming on. the constitution is useful certain rights regardless of who is in power. do you think we would have the freedom of speech, for
example, without the bill of rights? >> tucker, first, i want to say thank you so much for having me. in the last week, i have gotten over 1,000 abusive emails, many of them ante semitic. some of them threatening and so it's really a pleasure to be able to have a conversation that's sensible and calm about this. americans don't like other people telling them what they have to believe just because those other people claim to be better than they are. so, we wouldn't be happy being ruled by the french or the british or the u.n. or by a bunch of fancy pants law professors and there is no reason why we should be ruled by a very small number of people who have been dead for over 200 years who didn't even represent the united states at the time they were alive, the majority. so, with regard to free speech, of course we should have free speech.
but we should have free speech because free speech is valuable. i know that i have been taking advantage of it for the past few days. here is an argument that is not a good argument for free speech. we ought to have free speech because james madison 200 years ago thought we ought to have free speech. >> now, can you think, i mean, countries, civilized countries, great britain, for example. canada neither one has freedom of speech enshrined in the bill of rights. you can be imprisoned in both those countries for saying unpopular things. is that not true. >> they have different approach to the freedom of speech. let me say, this tucker, there are two different issues. my good friend professor has engaged. one is the particular mode of governance that's reflected in the constitution. that features not just provisions in the bill of rights but the diffusion of power both vertically between states and the federal government and horizontally among the three branches of the federal government. the right way to proceed.
let's stipulate that the frame has created diffusion of power because they believe no matter how compelling the action of a moment may be the best way to protect individual liberty frankly is to have a very cramped, confined government. the second issue is is the constitution as it stands now elm bodies the perfect balance. well, the answer to the first question i think is yes, i think the constitution is brilliant instrument. it continues to be relevant to the 21st century. second, we don't need tone gauge in extra constitutional hand throwing. article five of the constitution provides for opportunities to amend it. specific amendments constitutional convention. we now have 27 amendments in the book. i'm not sure why professor does not understand the proposition of the constitution the processes, the procedures for its own amendment. >> let's start from scratch the heck with it. >> professor, very quickly, if you would, without a
constitution, wouldn't each administration, political administration just make up the rules anew every time? >> no. gaza strip, israel, new zealand they don't have constitutions and that's not the way they work. we have long traditions in this country and we're not about to throw them out tomorrow. we're not about to throw them out in part because mr. rifkin is right. there is is a lot in the constitution americans believe in today. so, we would continue to do those things. there are also, i should say, some really pernicious provisions that almost no americans believe in today and we ought to get rid of. >> he gentlemen, i wish we had more time. thank you very much. that was illuminating. mtv's new show already reality gold. we go buck wild coming up. plus you have seen her dish out advice to contestants.
>> you are looking for your bed, protein, healthy fat, complex carbs. focus on what you need and he eliminate the rest. >> after dishing out celebrity advice. rachel is with us now to give us easy tips so we can all lose like the biggestlessers. nice to see you, rachel. >> nice to see you alisyn. >> what i love about your book eat to lose, eat to win is that you say that these are easy to follow suggestion lings. you are not counting calories or carbs what are you doing. >> basically getting on an action plan. an action plan that's simple and going to help you lose weight and get you healthy. >> one of the greatest thing is you say snacking is mandatory. >> positively mandatory. that's your p.m. snack. if you think you are going to
bypass that afternoon snack, you are setting yourself up for failure. >> let's go through the day to give us great suggestions how to et auto. let's start with breakfast what are you suggesting is ideal breakfast. >> what you want to think about address breakfast is fiber assurance fix. have at least 10 grams of fiber in the morning. >> why do you love fiber so much? >> it cleans your body out. everybody is getting on detoxes in the new year and really this is your daily dose of detox. women climb your way up to 35 grams for optimal prevention of heart disease, cancer. >> 35 grams a day of fiber. >> a day. men, 40. >> this breakfast hooks up with fiber right away. >> exactly. >> kiwa great grain protein in it how are you preparing it? >> what you are going to do is look at it and say that has four grams of fiber or if you are glue ten free and going for oatmeal four grams of fiber, not enough. you are going to double boost it take one teaspoon of chia

"fox & friends" hour four starts now. ♪ >> good morning, "fox & friends." good morning, "fox & friends." "fox & friends," good morning, "fox & friends" >> can you make that stop? >> the call center is open this morning. >> clayton: it's our pledge drive, annual pledge drive and
tucker carlson is here to talk part. >> alisyn: and we get this. >> tucker: and you get this handsome tote bag and a cozy for your beer. >> alisyn: tucker, thanks for being here. so of course, you know all about the top story that we have been following and that's this newspaper called "the journal news" it has published the names and addresses of legal pistol permit holders in two counties, north of new york. they're trying for a third county, but the town executives there won't release the names and addresses of their legal gun owners. >> tucker: no rational justification for this. legal gun owners particularly those who register their firearms with the states commit virtually no crimes at all. we know that. this is merely a primal scream from journalists who think that they're scary and mean. >> clayton: journalists if you can call them that, say the reason they did that was a public service, felt that the the neighbors would want to know who is is a registered
gun owner. here is one of the owners jeanette hanson there and also, news editor karen mcbride justifying, saying we think that the neighborhood would want to know who in their neighborhood owners guns. a former burglar was on our show-- was on greta's show last night and says it's going to open up pandora's box for burglary, doesn't make us more safe, less so. >> one of the things burglars look the at is guns. it's so easy to make cash. and now that the map is up, it's an easy issue and most criminals in the surrounding area is aware of it. they're going to be checking out this map, going to be casing this neighborhood and couple ways to find out if the home owners are home or not. so you're going to see in the next few weeks, several burglaries or more occur in this area. >> alisyn: okay, he so it's interesting. one of his theories is that
robbers, criminals, look to steal guns in homes, but then we have another criminal who came forward, his name is walter shaw, his claim to fame, he was responsible for 3,000 robberies that netted him 70 million dollars over two decades. he said that it's like a gold mine. a list like this is a gold line and obviously criminals read the newspaper. you think they all live in a shack somewhere. no, they read the newspaper and look for things like this and they would hit houses where there are no guns, obviously, what they would look to and he also predicts that this would see a spike. >> tucker: there's been some research on this question, john wat did a ground breaking study years ago that showed in places where there is a high level of legal gun ownership you have less crime, stands to reason, of course. why would any rational person, criminals included, want to hassle people with guns, they wouldn't. >> clayton: and i brought this up earlier and correct me if i'm wrong, the lo-jack versus club theory, which is that the lo-jack in cars, right, helps
police track down a stolen car and police can descend on that stolen car with lo-jack. >> alisyn: it's invisible. >> clayton: it's invisible and less likely to steel the car and the club is visible and they know what they're up against and dealing with. is this the same thing, you go down a rat hole either way, but if they're aware of it maybe they're less likely-- or more likely to break in, now they know what houses are open or free. >> tucker: either way it seems a violation of the gun owners as i think governor huckabee explained when he joined us earlier this morning. here he is. >> and i always have a problem when people use the term assault weapon. every weapon is an assault weapon, a pencil in the hands of an aggressive is an assault weapon if it's slammed into the side of your neck. and the idea that something looks scary and therefore, makes it more dangerous is absurd. a lot of the more traditional
rifles have a lot more fire power than the so-called assault rifles that everybody wants to ban. it's the idiocy of so many people that don't know about firearms-- >> by the way, i think governor huckabee said something i think we should correct. he said that hammers killed more people than guns, i think what he meant, rifles. and more people murdered by hammer than rifle. that's a stunning statistic. >> tucker: and the correct point almost never made, the guns that receive publicity, the scary ones with the suppressers et cetera, are in fact much less dangerous to people than a 30 ought 6 deer rifle that has a massive slug that would kill you instantly and deer rifles are nor dangerous than assault rifles. >> clayton: and more legal and talking about the guns,
registered gun owners that have a criminal history and it's the illegal guns and talk to mayor nudder of philadelphia, and rahm emanuel, legal guns in chicago the murder capital of the country. >> tucker: i wish we could quiz the people you just mentioned and profoundly ignorant about things they're legislating. >> alisyn: on that note, your headlines, a few weeks after nominating john kerry as the new secretary of state president obama is ready to make another cabinet nomination, set to nominate chuck haggle to take the place of leon panetta and the prove is expected to draw criticism from democrats and republicans because of his views on iraq, iran and israel and sources close to the situation, say the nomination could come as early as monday. congress approved 9 billion
dollars for super storm sandy victims. and help the flood insurance for the people affected by the storm, a second vote on the rest of the aid package, 51 billion is scheduled for january 15th. house speaker john boehner drew criticism, he canceled a vote on the 60 billion dollar package and republicans supported the situation saying the bill was filled with all sorts of unnecessary pork. so a group of strangers came to the rescue after a car flipped on a busy highway caught on camera. take a look, several people surrounding the car actually lift it up, they're super heroes, so that one of them could-- undernea underneath, could get out. she was 19 years old we're told. the scene was caught on cell phone by another driver who was passing by. >> they laid them out on the ground and one guy took his coat off, laid it over them and another one came up with a large sheet of plastic and laid over them to keep them
warm and that so many people would stop and do whatever they had to do, that was the cool part. >> clayton: one person stopping just to record cell phone video. >> alisyn: there you go. that driver we should say is recovering at an atlanta hospital. now, you loved this new show. what's not to-- talk about it, please, tucker. >> tucker: this is "buckwild" a new reality show on mtv, not my job to tout other networks, but this is reality gold, here is a click. >> whatever happens, happens. (laughter) >> and the show pulled in 2.4 million viewers during the the premier last week, over a million over jersey shore's debut. >> alisyn: how dare them. >> tucker: features a group of friends in the back woods of west virginia, and drawing criticism portraying young people and the state foolish, you have people shooting potato guns, and laughing,
girls are pretty, like a mountain dew commercial, what's wrong for that. this is like an ad for the state, i feel like moving there. >> alisyn: yes, denigrates the state? you feel it elevates the state. >> tucker: are you kidding? it's my favorite state. >> clayton: potato guns and girls running around in halter tops. >> potato guns, potato canons. let's go to maria with a look at the forecast. >> good to see you, good morning, everyone, to understand we're looking at temperatures, pretty typical for the month of january, kicking off the morning, if 12 in minneapolis, a 24 in chicago and as far as high temperatures go for new york city, we're going to be seeing temperatures into the upper 30's, again, very typical january-like weather. i want it talk about a storm that impacted western or southwestern portions of the state of texas. significant snowfall, ten
inches that's more than some has fallen in the midwest, this system is continuing to track north and eastward, now impacting places across the northeastern or places across the mid mississippi valley. so we're looking at that storm right now, producing very light snowfall accumulations in places like missouri, northern parts of arkansas, but not really too significant, so the storm is rather weak now. we do have areas of heavier rain across parts of louisiana moving into mississippi and the storm eventually as we head into late tonight and also tomorrow will be bringing in a little bit of snow across northeast, not expecting a lot of snow, but still looking at some of that white stuff coming up tomorrow morning. otherwise in the pacific northwest right now dealing with just mostly areas of rain, very light rain in seattle. down i-5 through portland and the storm system will continue to impact you throughout the day today, bringing some wind ton also some mountain snow cascades. but guess what? you're not done just today as we head into tomorrow and the next several days you're going to continue to deal with more rain, more snow, sometime some of you guys could actually see
over a foots of snow. that purple is actually more than two feet of snow for some of you again, so looking at the snow the next several days, high temperatures, 23 will are your high temperature. minneapolis 57 and the city of dallas, otherwise tampa, florida the warm spot 72 for you. >> clayton: thanks so much, maria. now to the story that fox news has been out in front on of course and bill o'reilly among others, leading the charge. >> alisyn: and "fox & friends." >> clayton: john hammar, sr. is speaking out, the father of this marine, john hammar trapped in a mexican prison for five months, chained to a bed for simply bringing a registered firearm, antique shotgun across the border on his way to costa rica for r and r. suffering from post traumatic stress disorder and trying to get a little bit of surfing in to try to recover. and trapped there, the father now speaking out on o'reilly's show last night saying his son is still struggling mightily with this condition.
take a listen. >> he said i'm not doing great physically-- physically great, but mentally, i think we're going to have to take a break for a second. it's a scary situation, he doesn't want to bring any -- you know, danger on to his family or himself in the future and you know, it's a tough situation down there because, you know, you're dealing with quasi-authoritative people pand you're dealing with the mexican authorities so you're not sure who you're really dealing with. >> alisyn: he's responding to a question why his son hasn't spoken out publicly. he's saying it's a dicey situation, he's afraid, not crossing anybody and you can imagine he found himself in this hornets nest of having run afoul of the law in mexico even though he thought he'd done everything right with
bringing the gun across the border and he suffered from ptsd and it's going to be a long mental recovery for him. >> tucker: pretty unbelievable that the u.s. government let him languish all those months. during the teddy roosevelt, an american was detained in morocco, he said immediately let him out or i'm sending gun boats over there. and you can't fool with an american and citizenship and i think we're humiliated with this. >> clayton: and walking softly and carrying a big stick and didn't we end up sending marines in that situation, but this situation, haven't called him. and when o'reilly asked the father has anyone from the state department called your family and see how he was doing? nothing, zilch. >> alisyn: lawmakers say they told one story about osama bin laden and the raid that got him and a different story to the makers of "zero dark thirty" that movie. which story is real? we'll ask a former operative
mike baker about it. >> tucker: plus, did miley cyrus secretly get married? we'll have the picture that has hollywood buzzing. it's unbelievable. ♪ to give us an edge, and more savings down every aisle, it only takes a few twists and turns for those bright ideas to make the new year even brighter. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. art fresh and save with x 20-gallon totes, a special buy at just $5.88 a piece.
i'm going to break you. any questions? >> lawmakers have sent the acting cia director a second letter asking him to back up his claim that interrogations did produce some useful intelligence. joining us is former cia former covert operative mike baker, thanks for coming on. >> thank you. >> tucker: as i understand they're upset because the film portrays enhanced interrogation as potentially fruitful, useful. >> this could be one of the strangest stories to come out in recent weeks and it does make you wonder. don't our senators in washington d.c. and those on the intel it committee have something better to do. >> tucker: apparently not. >> they may have missed the point that this is a hollywood film. so in a hollywood film you enhance reality, you create composite characters, you do a variety of things for entertainment purposes. admittedly sony's kind of pitching this movie as sort after part documentary, but it's a film. and what they're upset about
is the intel committee came out with a report and it was, i think, somewhat lacking in common sense, but the the report said there was no intelligence that was gathered from enhanced techniques. well, that served a certain mindset that has been kind of holding fort for years about enhanced interrogation, remember. there was a successful efforts by the left to grab that debate and say you're either talk to go a detainee or it's torture and there's nothing in between. so the intel committee report basically backed that up and said no intelligence, the film, "zero dark thirty," the scenes of enhanced interrogation, they gathered actionable inintelligence. it wasn't the only intelligence that allowed us to find bin laden the committee says wait, this entertainment film doesn't match our opinion and so they've gone back to the cia and say you better explain yourself and tell us exactly what you told the script writer.
>> tucker: as if the cia is responsible for the content of hollywood? >> it really is insane. more to the big picture point, the reality is the truth of the matter, when you're talking about enhanced interrogation, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. it's not black and white. and what the advocates are saying, you can never have enhanced techniques, want to say is that it never works. well, there's no absolute in any of this. sometimes your best bet is to develop a relationship with a detainee and talk and a lot of information was gathered that way, but what you want in your kit bag is the unknown. and what we've done over this past few years is tell the enemy exactly what we can and can't do now. we've taken the unknown out of the the kit bag and that's a bad thing. >> tucker: so that's just one less arrow in the quiver. >> absolutely, absolutely. you need that element of surprise, the unknowing, the fear, keeping them off guard, but to the point of the story,
it's just a strange position for the intel community to take. >> tucker: well, you should live in washington, you'd be more familiar with it. happens all the time. mike baker, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> tucker: coming up, can you spot the difference in the class photo taken of democrat democratic congress women? should they be photo shopping history? and a mom, people attacking her, saying it was over the line. we'll let you judge coming up. ♪ with my friends, we'll do almost anything. out for drinks, eats. i have very well fitting dentures. i like to eat a lot of fruits. love them all. the seal i get with the super poligrip free keeps the seeds from getting up underneath. even well-fitting dentures let in food particles. super poligrip is zinc free. with just a few dabs, it's clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. a lot of things going on in my life

video. >> i think because he does cry in it. to you it was a joke and you kind of made him cry. >> yeah, that was sad. >> if you had to do it over, the whole thing, would you? >> yeah. it was hilarious. it was a lot of fun and he's had a great time. >> i was okay. >> alisyn: so was the prank just fine or was it over the line? and a doctor, robert f stein is a child psychologist and author of "teen 2.0" and dr. susan lipkins, preventing hazing, how parents, teachers and coaches can stop the violence and humiliation, welcome to both of you. >> thank you, alisyn. >> alisyn: the mom, you heard her, she says it was just a joke, do you see something troubling here. >> yes, i think that parents want to be role models and not the behavior that we want to show our kids. they learn it quickly enough and we need to have pro social behaviors rather than these kind of things which are humiliating to the child. >> alisyn: okay, dr. epstein,
what do you think about this? >> oh, i disagree completely. i think this was well within the bounds of normal parenting. clearly, it's a family which kind of plays and you know, this was play and there's no question here that there's a lot of love in this family and no harm was done whatsoever. >> doctor lipkins when you say we should promote pro social behavior and preventing bullying, where does it cross the line, maybe it's a family of pranksters and they joke around with each other. >> it could be, and i see the pre-bully kind of behavior, it's demeaning and you see it in society and the culture and this is not the way you want to have fun with your children and you don't want to teach them this kind of behavior. they don't need to repeat it and make fun of others. >> alisyn: dr. epstein, what about the fact the mom then post it had on youtube, does that add an added layer of pain or humiliation? >> not at all.
again, i just i don't see it that way at all because the mom, as you know, she said she would do it again. this was just the way this family has fun and clearly, this boy is enjoying the attention and you know, he doesn't just cry in the video, the moment she says to him, this is just a prank, he just starts laughing. he thinks it's a wonderful prank. >> alisyn: and dr. epstein, i want to stick with you one more second. you studied 2000 parents and looked at the different styles of parenting, and what was your take away? >> i was really thrilled with the results since i'm a parent of four children and two stepchildren. the main result was that the best way you can produce good outcomes with children for expressing lots of love and affection and there's no question in this case, this m adores her child and she adores him, too. >> alisyn: doctor, last word. >> i don't think it's an appropriate way for a child and parent to interact and
reinforcing if we humiliate one another, we may end up on tv and that's not the kind of lesson that i would like parents to be teaching their children. >> alisyn: you also say that it does teach the lesson of not telling the truth and of course, we're supposed to model telling the truth to our children. well, it's a fascinating debate and you're own experts in your own right. we appreciate you sharing your insight into this. dr. robert epstein and dr. susan lipkins, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> alisyn: and imagine this guy sitting next to you on a plane of the this guy was duct-taped for being too drunk. was this the best way to calm him down? we'll hear what the passengers had to say. plus, ainsley is getting ready to go for a dip. she's getting a scuba lesson at the new york boat show when we come back. looking good, ainsley. ♪ ♪ gonna rock the boat ♪ ♪ .so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%.

the year is only one week old and lawmakers already handing out tens of billions of dollars, for green energy, electric motorcycles, nascar, hollywood, even rum makers in the caribbean. proponents say this is great news for jobs, but with nearly 16 1/2 trillion dollars in debt someone here says if we don't start trimming the fat now, we're only killing more jobs later. so, who is right? hi, everyone, i'm brenda buttner, this is bulls and bears. let's get right to it, the bulls and bears this week, gary b smith, tobin smith. jonas max ferris and gary and caroline. welcome to everybody. gary k, the year is one week old and congress passing billions of new pork and you say bad sign for jobs in the new year. why is that? >> could have,look, it never ends. 430 million dollars for hollywood producers so they do movies in the u.s. versus other places? that's crazy. look, when you continue to
raise spending it ends up being a tax on the economy, it keeps the headwinds on the economy, still at 7.8%, if you add in the people that came out of the work force we're more like at 11. it does nothing for nobody because government is inefficie inefficient, there is no profit motive and the inefficiencies because of that does nothing for the economy going forward. >> brenda: jonas, doesn't it do something? might create some jobs create those electric motor scooters you love so much? >> and it's not just hollywood. you can make the case in the long run, running up the deficit can cause a fiscal collapse and crisis that could lead to major recession, but in the short run, jobs 2013, giving the tax credit to make movies in america. if they make the movie in canada wouldn't that create less jobs in the u.s. than making the movie or commercial here. yeah, it's increasing the federal deficit
