  • 00:00:01.060 --> 00:00:03.020
  • religious freedom from the
  • 00:00:03.020 --> 00:00:04.170
  • cancel culture.
  • 00:00:04.170 --> 00:00:06.120
  • Dr. Kevin Leman shares the
  • 00:00:06.120 --> 00:00:07.150
  • secrets to a lifelong romance.
  • 00:00:07.150 --> 00:00:09.110

  • 00:00:09.110 --> 00:00:11.020
  • Luther Vandross classic.
  • 00:00:11.080 --> 00:00:14.080

  • City Connection.
  • 00:00:17.240 --> 00:00:20.220
  • And I'm your announcer,
  • 00:00:20.220 --> 00:00:21.190
  • Keith Bilbrey.
  • 00:00:21.190 --> 00:00:22.140
  • - Mike Huckabee: Thank you so
  • 00:00:43.130 --> 00:00:44.090
  • very much, welcome to our show.
  • 00:00:44.090 --> 00:00:45.050
  • And I got to tell you, I hope
  • 00:00:45.200 --> 00:00:48.200
  • you are enjoying a great
  • 00:00:48.200 --> 00:00:50.180
  • Thanksgiving weekend with your
  • 00:00:50.180 --> 00:00:52.170
  • family.
  • 00:00:52.170 --> 00:00:53.170
  • And by now, you're probably
  • 00:00:53.170 --> 00:00:55.040
  • trying to find yet another
  • 00:00:55.040 --> 00:00:56.150
  • recipe for leftover turkey.
  • 00:00:56.150 --> 00:00:58.110
  • I mean, you've already made
  • 00:00:58.110 --> 00:00:59.240
  • turkey salad, turkey sandwiches,
  • 00:00:59.240 --> 00:01:02.170
  • and my favorite, turkey gumbo.
  • 00:01:02.170 --> 00:01:05.090
  • But I also hope that you've
  • 00:01:05.090 --> 00:01:06.280
  • taken a little time to think
  • 00:01:06.280 --> 00:01:08.170
  • about what you are actually
  • 00:01:08.170 --> 00:01:09.260
  • thankful for.
  • 00:01:09.260 --> 00:01:11.260
  • You know, I'm grateful for some
  • 00:01:11.260 --> 00:01:13.100
  • things you probably wouldn't
  • 00:01:13.100 --> 00:01:15.070
  • think I would be.
  • 00:01:15.070 --> 00:01:17.180
  • I'm thankful I grew up poor
  • 00:01:17.180 --> 00:01:19.080
  • instead of rich 'cause it made
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:21.210
  • me appreciate hard work, the joy
  • 00:01:21.210 --> 00:01:23.270
  • of achievement, and the
  • 00:01:23.270 --> 00:01:25.050
  • fulfillment of ending up way
  • 00:01:25.050 --> 00:01:26.220
  • better than I started.
  • 00:01:26.220 --> 00:01:29.040
  • And for that matter, better than
  • 00:01:29.040 --> 00:01:30.140
  • I ever dreamed.
  • 00:01:30.140 --> 00:01:31.260
  • I'm grateful when I'm on a plane
  • 00:01:31.260 --> 00:01:33.160
  • and I hear babies cry.
  • 00:01:33.160 --> 00:01:35.260
  • Okay, I know it bothers some
  • 00:01:35.260 --> 00:01:37.190
  • people, but babies can't help
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:39.240
  • it.
  • 00:01:39.240 --> 00:01:40.260
  • Sometimes their little ears
  • 00:01:40.260 --> 00:01:41.290
  • hurt.
  • 00:01:41.290 --> 00:01:43.020
  • But for me, I'm reminded that
  • 00:01:43.020 --> 00:01:45.030
  • God must still believe the human
  • 00:01:45.030 --> 00:01:47.030
  • race deserves another chance
  • 00:01:47.030 --> 00:01:48.200
  • because he's bringing more of us
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:50.050
  • onto the planet.
  • 00:01:50.050 --> 00:01:52.030
  • Their cries remind me that if no
  • 00:01:52.030 --> 00:01:54.010
  • one else needs us, babies do,
  • 00:01:54.070 --> 00:01:57.070
  • and that is a beautiful thing.
  • 00:01:57.070 --> 00:01:59.170
  • I'm grateful for my pastor and
  • 00:01:59.170 --> 00:02:01.130
  • church.
  • 00:02:01.130 --> 00:02:02.160
  • I've got a pastor who's
  • 00:02:02.160 --> 00:02:03.160
  • unashamed of the Bible, and when
  • 00:02:03.160 --> 00:02:05.050
  • the message of the Bible
  • 00:02:05.050 --> 00:02:06.150
  • conflicts with modern culture,
  • 00:02:06.150 --> 00:02:08.020
  • he still sides with the Bible.
  • 00:02:08.020 --> 00:02:11.000
  • Now, he didn't beat us over the
  • 00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:12.050
  • head with it, he uses it as a
  • 00:02:12.050 --> 00:02:14.040
  • light, not a billyclub.
  • 00:02:14.040 --> 00:02:16.210
  • And by the way, I need all the
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:18.050
  • light I can get, that's for
  • 00:02:18.050 --> 00:02:19.200
  • sure.
  • 00:02:19.200 --> 00:02:21.040
  • I'm also grateful for simple
  • 00:02:21.040 --> 00:02:22.180
  • foods and simple things.
  • 00:02:22.180 --> 00:02:24.210
  • I grew up on simple things.
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:26.240
  • Frankly, I still prefer meatloaf
  • 00:02:26.240 --> 00:02:27.270
  • to lobster, and I'd rather have
  • 00:02:27.270 --> 00:02:30.250
  • grits than goose pate.
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:35.140
  • And I'd rather listen to George
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:36.210
  • Jones than Pavarotti, just me.
  • 00:02:37.160 --> 00:02:40.160
  • And I'm much more comfortable in
  • 00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:41.210
  • the stands than in some skybox.
  • 00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:44.060
  • I prefer wearing jeans and an
  • 00:02:44.060 --> 00:02:45.130
  • untucked shirt than a tux, but
  • 00:02:45.130 --> 00:02:47.110
  • I'll wear one if I have to.
  • 00:02:47.110 --> 00:02:49.260
  • And I deer hunt for the meat,
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:52.020
  • not to put trophy antlers on the
  • 00:02:52.020 --> 00:02:53.260
  • wall.
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:55.130
  • And by the way, I like to turkey
  • 00:02:55.130 --> 00:02:56.150
  • hunt just to prove that
  • 00:02:56.150 --> 00:02:57.220
  • occasionally, I'm smarter than
  • 00:02:57.220 --> 00:02:59.090
  • he is and I can lure him right
  • 00:02:59.090 --> 00:03:01.090
  • to me.
  • 00:03:03.050 --> 00:03:06.050
  • I'm also grateful for iced tea.
  • 00:03:06.050 --> 00:03:09.000
  • That's my preference for an
  • 00:03:09.000 --> 00:03:10.030
  • adult beverage.
  • 00:03:10.030 --> 00:03:11.270
  • I really don't like the smell of
  • 00:03:11.270 --> 00:03:12.210
  • alcohol, so I doubt I'd like the
  • 00:03:12.210 --> 00:03:14.170
  • taste of it.
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:16.010
  • It's why, honestly, I've never
  • 00:03:16.010 --> 00:03:17.180
  • even tasted beer.
  • 00:03:17.180 --> 00:03:19.180
  • And I got nothing against my
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:20.140
  • friends who like it, I'm just
  • 00:03:20.140 --> 00:03:21.200
  • glad that I didn't like it
  • 00:03:21.200 --> 00:03:23.010
  • because I might've ended up
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:24.120
  • abusing it and that would've
  • 00:03:24.120 --> 00:03:25.260
  • ruined my life.
  • 00:03:25.260 --> 00:03:27.120
  • I'm grateful for my children,
  • 00:03:27.120 --> 00:03:28.270
  • mostly because they gave me
  • 00:03:28.270 --> 00:03:30.040
  • grandkids.
  • 00:03:30.160 --> 00:03:33.160
  • My kids gave me lots of
  • 00:03:33.160 --> 00:03:35.030
  • headaches, my grandkids give me
  • 00:03:35.030 --> 00:03:37.260
  • mostly laughs.
  • 00:03:37.260 --> 00:03:39.240
  • My four-year-old grandson has
  • 00:03:39.240 --> 00:03:41.060
  • some batman pajamas, and a few
  • 00:03:41.060 --> 00:03:43.110
  • weeks ago, he told me that he
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:44.160
  • wanted me to get some Batman
  • 00:03:44.160 --> 00:03:46.220
  • pajamas so we could have a
  • 00:03:46.220 --> 00:03:49.030
  • sleepover.
  • 00:03:49.030 --> 00:03:51.130
  • And over Thanksgiving, we had
  • 00:03:51.200 --> 00:03:54.200
  • our sleepover.
  • 00:03:54.200 --> 00:03:56.020
  • And yes, I actually ordered some
  • 00:03:56.020 --> 00:03:58.060
  • adult size Batman pajamas and
  • 00:03:58.060 --> 00:04:00.270
  • wore them, yeah.
  • 00:04:03.220 --> 00:04:06.220
  • I mean, who knew they even made
  • 00:04:08.060 --> 00:04:11.060
  • those in my size?
  • 00:04:11.060 --> 00:04:13.230
  • Hey, but don't worry, you are
  • 00:04:13.230 --> 00:04:15.200
  • never, I mean, never going to
  • 00:04:16.080 --> 00:04:19.080
  • see the photos of me wearing
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:22.050
  • them, complete with the cowl.
  • 00:04:22.050 --> 00:04:23.140
  • Because unlike Keith and Tre', I
  • 00:04:23.140 --> 00:04:25.230
  • got some dignity left.
  • 00:04:25.230 --> 00:04:28.210
  • I got no plans on being seen
  • 00:04:28.210 --> 00:04:30.040
  • wearing them except by a
  • 00:04:30.040 --> 00:04:32.170
  • four-year-old who thinks that a
  • 00:04:32.170 --> 00:04:34.240
  • 64-year-old man wearing a Batman
  • 00:04:34.240 --> 00:04:36.240
  • suit is perfectly normal.
  • 00:04:37.110 --> 00:04:40.110
  • And yes, I'm grateful for that.
  • 00:04:40.110 --> 00:04:43.070
  • Most of all, I'm grateful that
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:44.150
  • the God who made me and knows me
  • 00:04:44.150 --> 00:04:46.110
  • inside and out still loves me
  • 00:04:46.110 --> 00:04:48.090
  • and even promised never to leave
  • 00:04:48.090 --> 00:04:50.050
  • me or forsake me.
  • 00:04:50.050 --> 00:04:51.110
  • And I don't know why or have to
  • 00:04:51.110 --> 00:04:53.040
  • figure all that out, I just have
  • 00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:56.160
  • My first guest tonight is in the
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:08.260
  • trenches, he's fighting back
  • 00:05:08.260 --> 00:05:10.160
  • against the constant assault by
  • 00:05:10.160 --> 00:05:12.070
  • the secular left on the rights
  • 00:05:12.070 --> 00:05:13.230
  • of religious believers and
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:14.280
  • parents.
  • 00:05:14.280 --> 00:05:15.260
  • He's an attorney, he's a
  • 00:05:15.260 --> 00:05:17.020
  • tireless champion of religious
  • 00:05:17.020 --> 00:05:18.260
  • liberty, and he's founder and
  • 00:05:18.260 --> 00:05:20.120
  • president of the Pacific Justice
  • 00:05:20.120 --> 00:05:22.000
  • Institute.
  • 00:05:22.000 --> 00:05:23.170
  • Please welcome my friend,
  • 00:05:23.170 --> 00:05:24.140
  • Brad, welcome back, we are so
  • 00:05:37.090 --> 00:05:38.080
  • happy to have you back with us
  • 00:05:38.080 --> 00:05:39.260
  • again.
  • 00:05:39.260 --> 00:05:41.050
  • You had a pretty big case this
  • 00:05:41.050 --> 00:05:42.170
  • week out on the west coast, and
  • 00:05:42.170 --> 00:05:44.090
  • I want you to tell us what
  • 00:05:44.090 --> 00:05:45.220
  • happened out there that we all
  • 00:05:45.220 --> 00:05:47.020
  • ought to be happy about.
  • 00:05:47.020 --> 00:05:49.040
  • - Brad Dacus: Oh yes, it's--I
  • 00:05:49.040 --> 00:05:50.130
  • think it was a major case, major
  • 00:05:50.130 --> 00:05:52.150
  • case dealing with a Christian
  • 00:05:52.150 --> 00:05:53.230
  • boarding school.
  • 00:05:53.230 --> 00:05:54.290
  • Now, this Christian boarding
  • 00:05:54.290 --> 00:05:55.250
  • school has been there for over
  • 00:05:55.250 --> 00:05:57.140
  • 20 years, helping boys and girls
  • 00:05:57.140 --> 00:05:59.100
  • get their schooling and their
  • 00:05:59.100 --> 00:06:01.220
  • lives in line, and yet they were
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:04.180
  • attacked.
  • 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:06.070
  • First, the state of California
  • 00:06:06.070 --> 00:06:08.120
  • came in and had a raid because
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:09.210
  • of a--get this, because of an
  • 00:06:09.210 --> 00:06:12.060
  • article, a ten-year-old story
  • 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:14.220
  • that appeared in Buzzfeed.
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:16.200
  • - Mike: Oh yeah, I call it
  • 00:06:16.200 --> 00:06:18.010
  • buzzardfeed.
  • 00:06:18.010 --> 00:06:19.000
  • - Brad: Yes, buzzardfeed.
  • 00:06:19.000 --> 00:06:20.010
  • So yeah, so that's all they had,
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:22.140
  • they got a judge to give a
  • 00:06:22.140 --> 00:06:23.140
  • warrant for a total raid, so you
  • 00:06:23.140 --> 00:06:25.080
  • had 16 troops coming in with 2
  • 00:06:25.080 --> 00:06:27.220
  • canine units, more than a dozen
  • 00:06:27.220 --> 00:06:30.010
  • social workers.
  • 00:06:30.010 --> 00:06:31.070
  • Raided the place looking for
  • 00:06:31.070 --> 00:06:32.170
  • guns, ammunition, whatever,
  • 00:06:32.170 --> 00:06:34.030
  • didn't find anything.
  • 00:06:34.030 --> 00:06:35.230
  • And instead of apologizing, the
  • 00:06:35.230 --> 00:06:38.200
  • state of California, the
  • 00:06:38.200 --> 00:06:39.270
  • Department of Social Services
  • 00:06:39.270 --> 00:06:40.280
  • said, "Oh no, we're going to
  • 00:06:40.280 --> 00:06:42.070
  • double down.
  • 00:06:42.070 --> 00:06:43.080
  • We're going to file a lawsuit
  • 00:06:43.080 --> 00:06:44.080
  • and we're going to shut you
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:45.230
  • down."
  • 00:06:45.230 --> 00:06:46.180
  • So, they filed a motion for
  • 00:06:46.180 --> 00:06:47.100
  • preliminary injunction to shut
  • 00:06:47.100 --> 00:06:48.150
  • them down because they said
  • 00:06:48.150 --> 00:06:49.290
  • you're technically really a
  • 00:06:49.290 --> 00:06:51.200
  • community care facility, not
  • 00:06:51.200 --> 00:06:53.270
  • really a school, a boarding
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:55.150
  • school.
  • 00:06:55.150 --> 00:06:56.150
  • And they know that if it became
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:06:57.080
  • a Christian--excuse me, a
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:06:58.130
  • community care facility, then
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:07:00.180
  • they would have to meet the
  • 00:07:00.180 --> 00:07:02.190
  • state standard, which has to
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:03.240
  • allow them--forces them to allow
  • 00:07:03.240 --> 00:07:05.200
  • the students to engage in full
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:07.270
  • sexual exploration with
  • 00:07:07.270 --> 00:07:10.100
  • relationships.
  • 00:07:10.100 --> 00:07:12.100
  • - Mike: And how old are these
  • 00:07:12.100 --> 00:07:13.090
  • kids?
  • 00:07:13.090 --> 00:07:13.280
  • - Brad: Oh, all the way down to
  • 00:07:13.280 --> 00:07:14.230
  • kindergarten.
  • 00:07:14.230 --> 00:07:15.230
  • - Mike: Unbelievable.
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:16.260
  • - Brad: So, it's unbelievable,
  • 00:07:16.260 --> 00:07:17.220
  • and yet that's the mindset,
  • 00:07:17.220 --> 00:07:18.260
  • that's the mindset.
  • 00:07:18.260 --> 00:07:20.130
  • That's how they run their
  • 00:07:20.130 --> 00:07:21.160
  • schools, the state of
  • 00:07:21.160 --> 00:07:22.090
  • California.
  • 00:07:22.090 --> 00:07:23.050
  • They want to shut down not just
  • 00:07:23.050 --> 00:07:24.060
  • this boarding school, they want
  • 00:07:24.060 --> 00:07:25.080
  • to shut down, the state of
  • 00:07:25.080 --> 00:07:26.110
  • California wants to shut down
  • 00:07:26.110 --> 00:07:27.070
  • every single Christian boarding
  • 00:07:27.070 --> 00:07:28.250
  • school that does not adopt to
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:30.150
  • their social worldview and
  • 00:07:30.150 --> 00:07:32.240
  • values, which goes totally
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:35.160
  • against a Christian biblical
  • 00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:37.210
  • worldview perspective.
  • 00:07:37.210 --> 00:07:39.030
  • - Mike: So, it's not about
  • 00:07:39.030 --> 00:07:39.230
  • tolerance, it's about
  • 00:07:39.230 --> 00:07:40.270
  • intolerance of views that do not
  • 00:07:40.270 --> 00:07:42.100
  • subscribe to a more modernistic
  • 00:07:42.100 --> 00:07:44.080
  • approach.
  • 00:07:44.080 --> 00:07:45.070
  • - Brad: Right.
  • 00:07:45.070 --> 00:07:46.030
  • - Mike: Is that the long-term
  • 00:07:46.030 --> 00:07:47.060
  • agenda, that it's not about
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:48.020
  • tolerance, coexistence that you
  • 00:07:48.020 --> 00:07:50.030
  • believe that you want to
  • 00:07:50.030 --> 00:07:51.160
  • believe, I believe what I'm
  • 00:07:51.160 --> 00:07:52.200
  • going to believe, we get along,
  • 00:07:52.200 --> 00:07:53.120
  • we live in the same community,
  • 00:07:53.120 --> 00:07:54.100
  • which has always to me been
  • 00:07:54.100 --> 00:07:55.010
  • fair.
  • 00:07:55.010 --> 00:07:56.050
  • I don't care if other people
  • 00:07:56.050 --> 00:07:57.130
  • want to live their lives
  • 00:07:57.130 --> 00:07:58.090
  • differently than me.
  • 00:07:58.090 --> 00:07:59.060
  • They should have every right to
  • 00:07:59.060 --> 00:08:00.040
  • do that.
  • 00:08:00.040 --> 00:08:01.020
  • But that's not what we're
  • 00:08:01.020 --> 00:08:02.140
  • talking about.
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:03.180
  • We're talking about shutting
  • 00:08:03.180 --> 00:08:04.180
  • down a view that does not adhere
  • 00:08:04.180 --> 00:08:05.160
  • to one point of view.
  • 00:08:05.160 --> 00:08:07.250
  • - Brad: Well, let me give you
  • 00:08:07.250 --> 00:08:08.180
  • an actual case that we had this
  • 00:08:08.180 --> 00:08:09.260
  • year.
  • 00:08:09.260 --> 00:08:10.220
  • It was in Wisconsin, okay?
  • 00:08:10.220 --> 00:08:12.090
  • Not California, Wisconsin, Du
  • 00:08:12.090 --> 00:08:13.110
  • Pere, Wisconsin, they pass an
  • 00:08:13.110 --> 00:08:15.250
  • ordinance telling churches that
  • 00:08:15.250 --> 00:08:17.270
  • they must comply with public
  • 00:08:17.270 --> 00:08:19.140
  • accommodation, meaning that if
  • 00:08:19.140 --> 00:08:21.020
  • they--that they--if they hire
  • 00:08:21.080 --> 00:08:24.080
  • someone, they can't have beliefs
  • 00:08:24.080 --> 00:08:26.140
  • or values, say a minister, they
  • 00:08:26.140 --> 00:08:28.200
  • can't say, "Well, minister, you
  • 00:08:28.200 --> 00:08:30.090
  • have to comply with our value
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:31.120
  • and definition of marriage.
  • 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:33.100
  • If you go and marry someone of
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:34.170
  • the same gender, then you can't
  • 00:08:34.170 --> 00:08:36.180
  • work here."
  • 00:08:36.180 --> 00:08:37.180
  • Well, they say, "If you do that,
  • 00:08:37.180 --> 00:08:38.230
  • we're going to shut your church
  • 00:08:38.230 --> 00:08:39.240
  • down."
  • 00:08:39.240 --> 00:08:40.190
  • - Mike: Shut it down.
  • 00:08:40.190 --> 00:08:41.220
  • - Brad: Shut it down.
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:42.130
  • And it also applied to a
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:43.070
  • Christian radio station that we
  • 00:08:43.070 --> 00:08:44.000
  • defended as well.
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:45.150
  • We went into court, we filed a
  • 00:08:45.150 --> 00:08:47.230
  • motion for an injunction, and we
  • 00:08:47.230 --> 00:08:49.090
  • prevailed.
  • 00:08:49.090 --> 00:08:50.090
  • And the judge said, "Not only
  • 00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:51.270
  • does this violate the state
  • 00:08:51.270 --> 00:08:53.120
  • constitution, this violates the
  • 00:08:53.120 --> 00:08:55.040
  • US constitution's First
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:56.130
  • Amendment as well," the
  • 00:08:56.130 --> 00:08:57.220
  • religious freedom clause.
  • 00:08:57.220 --> 00:08:58.220
  • So, it was a wonderful success,
  • 00:08:58.220 --> 00:09:00.060
  • but do you know what happened?
  • 00:09:00.060 --> 00:09:01.150
  • When--after this passed, other
  • 00:09:01.150 --> 00:09:03.270
  • towns in Wisconsin had already
  • 00:09:03.270 --> 00:09:06.120
  • passed this.
  • 00:09:06.120 --> 00:09:08.090
  • This was already spreading.
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:09.160
  • And this was in Wisconsin, okay?
  • 00:09:09.160 --> 00:09:11.260
  • Not Seattle or New York City.
  • 00:09:11.260 --> 00:09:13.220
  • So, people need to realize how
  • 00:09:13.220 --> 00:09:15.110
  • real this is, and that's why we
  • 00:09:15.110 --> 00:09:16.220
  • at Pacific Justice Institute are
  • 00:09:16.220 --> 00:09:18.090
  • committed to taking on every
  • 00:09:18.090 --> 00:09:19.250
  • single one of these cases.
  • 00:09:19.250 --> 00:09:21.040
  • We're very unique, we don't just
  • 00:09:21.040 --> 00:09:22.000
  • take on a certain case here or
  • 00:09:22.000 --> 00:09:23.230
  • there.
  • 00:09:23.230 --> 00:09:24.250
  • We work hard to make sure
  • 00:09:24.250 --> 00:09:25.190
  • everyone gets help because all
  • 00:09:25.190 --> 00:09:27.010
  • it takes is one of these fires
  • 00:09:27.010 --> 00:09:28.180
  • to continue, and then it'll
  • 00:09:28.210 --> 00:09:31.210
  • spread.
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:32.180
  • Another case, San Rafael,
  • 00:09:32.180 --> 00:09:33.180
  • talking about taxes.
  • 00:09:33.180 --> 00:09:34.210
  • - Mike: Yeah.
  • 00:09:34.210 --> 00:09:35.180
  • - Brad: They issued--this is
  • 00:09:35.180 --> 00:09:36.250
  • near San Francisco, that's part
  • 00:09:36.250 --> 00:09:38.010
  • of the explanation.
  • 00:09:38.010 --> 00:09:39.000
  • San Rafael decided to issue a
  • 00:09:39.000 --> 00:09:41.240
  • property tax against all
  • 00:09:41.240 --> 00:09:44.160
  • churches and synagogues.
  • 00:09:44.160 --> 00:09:46.010
  • And it's--but they called it a
  • 00:09:46.010 --> 00:09:48.190
  • per square foot building usage
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:50.210
  • fee.
  • 00:09:50.210 --> 00:09:51.280
  • So, we went into court and we
  • 00:09:51.280 --> 00:09:54.210
  • said, "Your honor, that's a
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:55.240
  • property tax."
  • 00:09:55.240 --> 00:09:56.220
  • And the judge realized that
  • 00:09:56.220 --> 00:09:57.270
  • there's no limit on what they
  • 00:09:57.270 --> 00:10:00.000
  • could tax if they get away with
  • 00:10:00.000 --> 00:10:01.020
  • this.
  • 00:10:01.020 --> 00:10:01.280
  • This little Baptist church,
  • 00:10:01.280 --> 00:10:02.260
  • Valley Baptist Church, had to
  • 00:10:02.260 --> 00:10:04.140
  • come up with $13.000 or the city
  • 00:10:04.150 --> 00:10:07.150
  • was going to shut their doors
  • 00:10:07.150 --> 00:10:08.170
  • permanently.
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:10.020
  • We went into court and thank the
  • 00:10:10.020 --> 00:10:11.220
  • Lord for this one, the judge
  • 00:10:11.220 --> 00:10:13.290
  • said, "This is unconstitutional,
  • 00:10:13.290 --> 00:10:16.010
  • a violation of the state
  • 00:10:16.010 --> 00:10:17.020
  • constitution," and it was
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:17.290
  • halted.
  • 00:10:17.290 --> 00:10:19.010
  • But if we hadn't halted it, make
  • 00:10:19.010 --> 00:10:20.010
  • no mistake, other cities across
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:22.110
  • the country that--whose city
  • 00:10:22.110 --> 00:10:25.090
  • councilmen don't go to church
  • 00:10:25.090 --> 00:10:26.110
  • regularly would likely quickly
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:29.210
  • do the same thing to start
  • 00:10:29.210 --> 00:10:30.260
  • gaining revenue and punishing
  • 00:10:30.260 --> 00:10:32.040
  • churches who have a different
  • 00:10:32.040 --> 00:10:33.170
  • worldview.
  • 00:10:33.170 --> 00:10:34.110
  • - Mike: How can we help Pacific
  • 00:10:34.110 --> 00:10:36.110
  • Justice Institute do the job
  • 00:10:36.110 --> 00:10:39.080
  • that it does?
  • 00:10:39.080 --> 00:10:40.000
  • Because you take on these cases
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:41.060
  • pro bono, you help these people
  • 00:10:41.060 --> 00:10:42.180
  • when they otherwise could never
  • 00:10:42.180 --> 00:10:44.060
  • afford the legal assistance.
  • 00:10:44.060 --> 00:10:46.130
  • How do we help you?
  • 00:10:46.130 --> 00:10:47.280
  • - Brad: Well, thank you for
  • 00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:49.000
  • asking that.
  • 00:10:49.000 --> 00:10:49.270
  • We are a nonprofit organization.
  • 00:10:49.270 --> 00:10:51.240
  • We do all our work without
  • 00:10:51.240 --> 00:10:53.180
  • charge, all of it.
  • 00:10:53.180 --> 00:10:54.210
  • We have--
  • 00:10:54.210 --> 00:10:56.000
  • - Mike: Which is amazing.
  • 00:10:56.000 --> 00:10:56.260
  • - Brad: So yeah, so we have a
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:57.280
  • huge network of hundreds of
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:10:59.070
  • volunteer affiliated attorneys,
  • 00:10:59.070 --> 00:11:00.210
  • that helps a considerable
  • 00:11:00.210 --> 00:11:01.210
  • degree.
  • 00:11:01.210 --> 00:11:02.170
  • So, we appreciate attorneys who
  • 00:11:02.170 --> 00:11:03.110
  • want to become a part of that
  • 00:11:03.110 --> 00:11:04.120
  • team.
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:05.040
  • We have nine offices now in
  • 00:11:05.040 --> 00:11:05.280
  • California, but we're also
  • 00:11:05.280 --> 00:11:07.120
  • looking for expanding offices in
  • 00:11:08.190 --> 00:11:11.190
  • other cities across the country.
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:13.100
  • So, if people say, "Hey, I'd
  • 00:11:13.100 --> 00:11:15.060
  • like to have them come to my
  • 00:11:15.060 --> 00:11:16.150
  • town," I think we can make it
  • 00:11:16.150 --> 00:11:18.020
  • happen.
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:18.260
  • They should contact us.
  • 00:11:18.260 --> 00:11:19.220
  • And also, we're supported by
  • 00:11:19.220 --> 00:11:21.030
  • moms and dads, grandmas and
  • 00:11:21.030 --> 00:11:22.240
  • grandpas.
  • 00:11:22.240 --> 00:11:23.240
  • George Soros for some reason
  • 00:11:23.240 --> 00:11:25.110
  • doesn't want to give to us, I
  • 00:11:25.110 --> 00:11:26.250
  • don't know.
  • 00:11:26.250 --> 00:11:27.200
  • - Mike: I don't think you want
  • 00:11:27.200 --> 00:11:28.200
  • to take his money.
  • 00:11:28.200 --> 00:11:29.140

  • self-centered, number one.
  • 00:13:56.280 --> 00:13:59.010
  • I mean, I've been married 52
  • 00:13:59.010 --> 00:14:00.050
  • years in a row.
  • 00:14:00.050 --> 00:14:01.190

  • - Mike: I have never noticed
  • 00:14:13.120 --> 00:14:14.110
  • that in my 45 years of marriage.
  • 00:14:14.110 --> 00:14:15.040
  • - Kevin: And I can still see my
  • 00:14:15.040 --> 00:14:17.220
  • bride tall, 5'9, pretty lady and
  • 00:14:17.220 --> 00:14:20.210
  • then some walking down the aisle
  • 00:14:20.210 --> 00:14:22.060
  • with this little bouquet of
  • 00:14:22.060 --> 00:14:24.070
  • flowers.
  • 00:14:24.070 --> 00:14:25.050
  • And I didn't realize till after
  • 00:14:25.050 --> 00:14:25.280
  • we were married that there was a
  • 00:14:25.280 --> 00:14:28.220
  • rulebook underneath there.
  • 00:14:28.230 --> 00:14:31.230
  • And she's the firstborn, so
  • 00:14:31.230 --> 00:14:34.180
  • she's got a lot of rules, okay?
  • 00:14:34.180 --> 00:14:36.200
  • And I'm the baby, and I've
  • 00:14:36.200 --> 00:14:38.240
  • avoided rules most of my life.
  • 00:14:38.270 --> 00:14:41.270
  • And whoever said differences
  • 00:14:41.270 --> 00:14:43.070
  • attract are right.
  • 00:14:43.070 --> 00:14:45.060
  • So, men are weird.
  • 00:14:45.060 --> 00:14:48.010
  • Women are strange.
  • 00:14:48.010 --> 00:14:49.160
  • You can do it the other way,
  • 00:14:49.160 --> 00:14:51.030
  • women are weird and men are
  • 00:14:51.030 --> 00:14:52.060
  • strange, but we're just
  • 00:14:52.060 --> 00:14:53.150
  • different, and we have different
  • 00:14:53.150 --> 00:14:56.030
  • needs.
  • 00:14:56.030 --> 00:14:57.010
  • A need for a man: needed,
  • 00:14:57.010 --> 00:14:58.160
  • wanted, fulfillment.
  • 00:14:58.160 --> 00:15:00.230
  • Women: affection, affection,
  • 00:15:02.040 --> 00:15:05.040
  • communication.
  • 00:15:05.040 --> 00:15:06.180
  • What are us men intuitively not
  • 00:15:06.180 --> 00:15:09.140
  • real great at?
  • 00:15:09.140 --> 00:15:10.220
  • Communication.
  • 00:15:10.220 --> 00:15:12.150
  • So, men to listen to their women
  • 00:15:12.150 --> 00:15:14.210
  • in their lives, okay?
  • 00:15:14.210 --> 00:15:16.280
  • Without judgement, and that's
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:20.020
  • hard for a lot of us as men.
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:21.070
  • - Mike: What do you mean by
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:23.140
  • without judgment?
  • 00:15:23.140 --> 00:15:24.220
  • Listening, just what?
  • 00:15:24.220 --> 00:15:25.250
  • - Kevin: Well, the critical
  • 00:15:25.250 --> 00:15:26.250
  • eye.
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:28.050
  • You know, men like the USA Today
  • 00:15:28.130 --> 00:15:31.130
  • version, okay?
  • 00:15:31.130 --> 00:15:34.040
  • - Mike: Brief, quick.
  • 00:15:34.040 --> 00:15:35.260
  • - Kevin: Yeah.
  • 00:15:35.260 --> 00:15:36.220
  • - Mike: Condensed.
  • 00:15:36.220 --> 00:15:37.180
  • - Kevin: Women are just so
  • 00:15:37.180 --> 00:15:38.090
  • different, they're so
  • 00:15:38.090 --> 00:15:39.040
  • relational.
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:39.250
  • They hug anything that moves.
  • 00:15:41.070 --> 00:15:44.070
  • They go potty in groups of 8,
  • 00:15:44.070 --> 00:15:45.180
  • 10, and 12.
  • 00:15:45.180 --> 00:15:47.230
  • It's a social event.
  • 00:15:47.230 --> 00:15:48.220
  • "Anybody want to go potty?
  • 00:15:48.220 --> 00:15:49.240
  • I'm going, come on."
  • 00:15:49.240 --> 00:15:52.040
  • - Mike: Yeah, if men ever did
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:52.280
  • that at a restaurant table,
  • 00:15:52.280 --> 00:15:53.250
  • you'd never ever go eat with
  • 00:15:53.250 --> 00:15:54.280
  • them again, ever.
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:55.280
  • - Kevin: Would you ever say
  • 00:15:55.280 --> 00:15:56.220
  • that to me, "Hey Leman, I'm
  • 00:15:56.220 --> 00:15:58.160
  • going to go to the john, want to
  • 00:15:58.160 --> 00:15:59.120
  • come with me?"
  • 00:15:59.120 --> 00:16:00.250
  • - Mike: No.
  • 00:16:00.250 --> 00:16:01.240
  • And the only thing that would be
  • 00:16:01.240 --> 00:16:02.190
  • worse that if you did, I will
  • 00:16:02.190 --> 00:16:03.290
  • tell you that.
  • 00:16:03.290 --> 00:16:06.020
  • - Kevin: So again, I go back to
  • 00:16:06.020 --> 00:16:07.120
  • God had a great sense of humor,
  • 00:16:07.120 --> 00:16:08.270
  • and I think he made it that way
  • 00:16:08.270 --> 00:16:10.090
  • so we would really have to work
  • 00:16:10.090 --> 00:16:12.050
  • hard at understanding this
  • 00:16:12.050 --> 00:16:14.140
  • woman.
  • 00:16:14.140 --> 00:16:15.170
  • I mean, here's an old
  • 00:16:15.170 --> 00:16:16.180
  • commercial, you're in good hands
  • 00:16:16.180 --> 00:16:17.250
  • with Allstate.
  • 00:16:17.250 --> 00:16:20.050
  • That's been around since I was a
  • 00:16:20.050 --> 00:16:21.110
  • little kid, and I'm near death.
  • 00:16:21.110 --> 00:16:22.140
  • But that's how women want to
  • 00:16:22.210 --> 00:16:25.210
  • feel.
  • 00:16:25.210 --> 00:16:26.200
  • So, men have to listen.
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:28.210
  • And sometimes, they start at A
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:30.180
  • and all the way to Z.
  • 00:16:30.180 --> 00:16:32.030
  • And most men would sort of like
  • 00:16:32.030 --> 00:16:34.010
  • A, L, Z.
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:35.200
  • Just tell me what happened, you
  • 00:16:35.200 --> 00:16:37.100
  • know?
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:38.090
  • So, getting behind each other's
  • 00:16:38.090 --> 00:16:40.100
  • eyes and seeing how they see
  • 00:16:40.100 --> 00:16:41.230
  • life.
  • 00:16:41.230 --> 00:16:42.220
  • I mean, I talk about my
  • 00:16:42.220 --> 00:16:43.290
  • firstborn beautiful wife, but
  • 00:16:43.290 --> 00:16:45.260
  • can I mention the word
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:48.040
  • "foreplay" on "Huckabee?"
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:50.090
  • - Mike: You just did.
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:51.120
  • - Kevin: Oh, I did, didn't I?
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:52.130
  • - Mike: You just did.
  • 00:16:52.130 --> 00:16:53.060
  • - Kevin: Well, in my home,
  • 00:16:53.060 --> 00:16:55.000
  • foreplay is cleaning the
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:57.070
  • kitchen, pick up after yourself,
  • 00:16:57.070 --> 00:17:00.030
  • make sure you wipe off the
  • 00:17:00.030 --> 00:17:01.220
  • counters fully.
  • 00:17:01.220 --> 00:17:03.030
  • And check this out, put the
  • 00:17:03.030 --> 00:17:04.010
  • toaster away.
  • 00:17:04.010 --> 00:17:06.050
  • - Mike: You just ruined the
  • 00:17:06.050 --> 00:17:07.030
  • whole idea of that word for
  • 00:17:07.030 --> 00:17:08.200
  • every man watching the show
  • 00:17:08.200 --> 00:17:10.020
  • right now, you do know that.
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:11.250
  • - Kevin: You're right, but my
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:12.260
  • point is whatever your
  • 00:17:12.260 --> 00:17:14.100
  • wife--what's ever going on
  • 00:17:14.100 --> 00:17:16.010
  • behind her eyes, that's our job.
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:18.090
  • You want to be a good leader.
  • 00:17:18.090 --> 00:17:19.070
  • You got to know who you're
  • 00:17:19.070 --> 00:17:20.050
  • leading.
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:21.010
  • And by the way, you're a married
  • 00:17:21.010 --> 00:17:22.040
  • man.
  • 00:17:22.040 --> 00:17:22.280
  • This is just a tip.
  • 00:17:22.280 --> 00:17:24.040
  • I know we're on the air, but
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:25.070
  • just a personal tip.
  • 00:17:25.070 --> 00:17:26.120
  • You're driving with your wife
  • 00:17:26.120 --> 00:17:27.180
  • Janet, and she turns to you and
  • 00:17:27.180 --> 00:17:29.040
  • says, "Do you want to stop for
  • 00:17:29.040 --> 00:17:31.170
  • ice cream?"
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:32.260
  • Let me tell you something,
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:34.040
  • governor, she is not asking a
  • 00:17:34.040 --> 00:17:35.200
  • question.
  • 00:17:37.200 --> 00:17:40.200
  • - Mike: You think, really?
  • 00:17:41.290 --> 00:17:44.290
  • Man, no wonder you've been
  • 00:17:44.290 --> 00:17:45.270
  • married 52 years, Kevin.
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:47.180
  • - Kevin: Yeah.
  • 00:17:47.180 --> 00:17:49.150
  • - Mike: But is it ever too late
  • 00:17:49.150 --> 00:17:51.140
  • for couples to begin working on
  • 00:17:51.140 --> 00:17:53.170
  • connecting?
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:55.230
  • - Kevin: It gets back to
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:56.210
  • servicing each other.
  • 00:17:56.210 --> 00:17:59.080
  • You have to realize that
  • 00:17:59.080 --> 00:18:00.070
  • fighting is an act of
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:01.160
  • cooperation.
  • 00:18:01.160 --> 00:18:02.160
  • If you're fighting with your
  • 00:18:02.160 --> 00:18:03.170
  • spouse, you know exactly what to
  • 00:18:03.170 --> 00:18:04.220
  • say to escalate the battle.
  • 00:18:04.220 --> 00:18:06.220
  • I call it spitting in each
  • 00:18:06.220 --> 00:18:08.000
  • other's soup.
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:09.020
  • "Oh no honey, you go ahead and
  • 00:18:09.020 --> 00:18:10.070
  • play golf, and I'll just stay
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:11.150
  • home here with your mother."
  • 00:18:13.160 --> 00:18:16.160
  • - Mike: I mean, everybody's
  • 00:18:16.160 --> 00:18:17.110
  • laughing because we've all known
  • 00:18:17.110 --> 00:18:18.200
  • those kind of moments.
  • 00:18:18.200 --> 00:18:20.140
  • - Kevin: We have.
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:21.120
  • But see, you have to put down
  • 00:18:21.120 --> 00:18:22.110
  • the weapons and understand that
  • 00:18:22.110 --> 00:18:23.180
  • God has ordained this thing, it
  • 00:18:23.180 --> 00:18:25.090
  • ought to work.
  • 00:18:25.090 --> 00:18:26.130
  • It ought to work.
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:28.080
  • - Mike: It's supposed to work,
  • 00:18:28.080 --> 00:18:29.010
  • isn't it?
  • 00:18:29.010 --> 00:18:29.160
  • - Kevin: It's supposed to work.
  • 00:18:29.160 --> 00:18:30.080
  • - Mike: So, is there a kind of
  • 00:18:30.080 --> 00:18:31.080
  • a one big moment or one big
  • 00:18:31.080 --> 00:18:33.230
  • lesson for men and one big
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:35.090
  • lesson for women in all of this?
  • 00:18:35.090 --> 00:18:37.240
  • - Kevin: Yeah, I'd say ladies,
  • 00:18:37.240 --> 00:18:38.270
  • don't put a skirt on your
  • 00:18:38.270 --> 00:18:40.050
  • husband.
  • 00:18:40.050 --> 00:18:41.210
  • He is not your girlfriend.
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:43.050
  • You use three and a half times
  • 00:18:43.050 --> 00:18:45.270
  • the number of words, ladies,
  • 00:18:45.270 --> 00:18:47.250
  • that he does.
  • 00:18:47.250 --> 00:18:49.000
  • He specializes in arm's length
  • 00:18:49.000 --> 00:18:50.180
  • relationship.
  • 00:18:50.180 --> 00:18:51.240
  • But trust me, there's not a man
  • 00:18:51.240 --> 00:18:52.240
  • here that wants an arm's length
  • 00:18:52.240 --> 00:18:54.140
  • relationship with his bride.
  • 00:18:54.140 --> 00:18:55.240
  • He wants intimacy, he wants
  • 00:18:55.240 --> 00:18:57.180
  • closeness.
  • 00:18:57.180 --> 00:18:58.180
  • He wants to know that he's
  • 00:18:58.180 --> 00:18:59.280
  • really wanted by that woman.
  • 00:18:59.280 --> 00:19:01.250
  • That'll drive a man--I mean,
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:03.230
  • we're weird.
  • 00:19:03.230 --> 00:19:04.180
  • I mean, men are able to watch
  • 00:19:04.180 --> 00:19:06.060
  • two ball games simultaneously
  • 00:19:06.060 --> 00:19:08.030
  • eating a pizza in their boxer
  • 00:19:08.030 --> 00:19:10.110
  • shorts belching.
  • 00:19:12.110 --> 00:19:15.110
  • Yes, ladies, this is your gift
  • 00:19:15.110 --> 00:19:17.100
  • from God.
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:18.160
  • So, realize the differences that
  • 00:19:18.160 --> 00:19:21.000
  • exist between men and women.
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:23.200
  • And I think praying together,
  • 00:19:24.190 --> 00:19:27.190
  • you want to know what's going on
  • 00:19:27.190 --> 00:19:28.280
  • to your bride's mind?
  • 00:19:28.280 --> 00:19:30.090
  • Pray audibly, listen.
  • 00:19:30.090 --> 00:19:33.070
  • Very few couples do that.
  • 00:19:33.070 --> 00:19:35.030
  • "The Intimate Connection" is the
  • 00:19:35.030 --> 00:19:36.240
  • title of the book, but most
  • 00:19:36.240 --> 00:19:38.090
  • couples don't have the intimate
  • 00:19:38.090 --> 00:19:39.120
  • connection.
  • 00:19:39.120 --> 00:19:40.120
  • They live a married singles
  • 00:19:40.120 --> 00:19:41.190
  • lifestyle.
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:42.290
  • - Mike: Wow.
  • 00:19:42.290 --> 00:19:44.070
  • - Kevin: Yeah, so it's--I'd
  • 00:19:44.070 --> 00:19:45.080
  • love to tell you the state of
  • 00:19:45.080 --> 00:19:46.170
  • marriage is great, but it's not.
  • 00:19:46.170 --> 00:19:48.030
  • You get married today,
  • 00:19:48.030 --> 00:19:49.060
  • statistically seven years later,
  • 00:19:49.060 --> 00:19:51.120
  • you're done, stick a fork in
  • 00:19:51.120 --> 00:19:52.140
  • you.
  • 00:19:52.140 --> 00:19:53.120
  • - Mike: That's why your book is
  • 00:19:53.120 --> 00:19:54.040
  • so important and your message.
  • 00:19:54.040 --> 00:19:54.270

  • I'm concerned.
  • 00:21:09.210 --> 00:21:11.180
  • Well, we've got the news that
  • 00:21:11.180 --> 00:21:12.230
  • might make you want to impeach

  • me on a segment we call In Case
  • 00:21:14.130 --> 00:21:16.240
  • - Mike: All right, we get
  • 00:21:24.290 --> 00:21:25.180
  • underway tonight with a story
  • 00:21:25.180 --> 00:21:26.090
  • about a running club in
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:27.050
  • Virginia.
  • 00:21:27.050 --> 00:21:27.290
  • Gathered people to run in T-rex
  • 00:21:27.290 --> 00:21:30.170
  • costumes for an annual event,
  • 00:21:30.170 --> 00:21:33.010
  • and hopefully a Guinness World
  • 00:21:33.010 --> 00:21:34.270
  • Record attempt.
  • 00:21:34.270 --> 00:21:35.280
  • The Richmond Roadrunners Club
  • 00:21:35.280 --> 00:21:37.210
  • said the second annual Richmond
  • 00:21:37.210 --> 00:21:39.100
  • T-Rex Run had a total of 175
  • 00:21:39.100 --> 00:21:41.260
  • people frolicking through
  • 00:21:41.260 --> 00:21:44.040
  • Dory Park.
  • 00:21:44.040 --> 00:21:45.090
  • Our dino-mite friends came a
  • 00:21:45.090 --> 00:21:48.080
  • little short of their goal of
  • 00:21:48.080 --> 00:21:49.220
  • 244 T-rex runners to set the new
  • 00:21:49.220 --> 00:21:52.010
  • Guinness record.
  • 00:21:52.010 --> 00:21:53.150
  • I'm just glad to see that they
  • 00:21:53.150 --> 00:21:55.060
  • were good sports and not a bunch
  • 00:21:55.060 --> 00:21:56.270
  • of sour losers.
  • 00:21:57.230 --> 00:22:00.250
  • Dinasour--nevermind, okay.
  • 00:22:00.250 --> 00:22:03.210
  • By the way, you think a car
  • 00:22:03.210 --> 00:22:05.030
  • accidentally ran into this group
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:07.090
  • of costumes runners, it would've
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:09.090
  • been a Tyrannosaurus wreck?
  • 00:22:12.100 --> 00:22:15.100

  • that is for sure.
  • 00:22:19.100 --> 00:22:20.150
  • Moving on for obvious reasons,
  • 00:22:20.150 --> 00:22:22.120
  • shoppers at a CVS drugstore in
  • 00:22:22.120 --> 00:22:25.010
  • New York were surprised when a
  • 00:22:25.010 --> 00:22:26.110
  • pair of raccoons fell right
  • 00:22:26.110 --> 00:22:28.260
  • through the ceiling and went for
  • 00:22:28.260 --> 00:22:30.140
  • a little stroll through the
  • 00:22:30.140 --> 00:22:31.170
  • store.
  • 00:22:31.170 --> 00:22:32.130
  • An employee at the CVS in
  • 00:22:32.130 --> 00:22:33.180
  • Warwick said that he was in the
  • 00:22:33.180 --> 00:22:34.280
  • candy aisle when he heard a loud
  • 00:22:34.280 --> 00:22:36.150
  • noise, it sounded like a piece
  • 00:22:36.150 --> 00:22:38.020
  • of the ceiling had fallen.
  • 00:22:38.020 --> 00:22:39.180
  • - Keith: Governor?
  • 00:22:39.180 --> 00:22:40.190
  • - Mike: Yeah, Keith?
  • 00:22:40.190 --> 00:22:41.120
  • - Keith: I hate to interrupt
  • 00:22:41.120 --> 00:22:42.090
  • you, but did I ever tell you
  • 00:22:42.090 --> 00:22:43.030
  • about my cowboy friend who lost
  • 00:22:43.030 --> 00:22:44.150
  • his Bible?
  • 00:22:44.150 --> 00:22:45.200
  • - Mike: No.
  • 00:22:45.200 --> 00:22:46.180
  • - Keith: Yeah, fell out of his
  • 00:22:46.180 --> 00:22:47.110
  • saddlebag while he was mending
  • 00:22:47.110 --> 00:22:48.120
  • fences out on the range one day.
  • 00:22:48.120 --> 00:22:50.100
  • Weeks go by, and then one day a
  • 00:22:50.100 --> 00:22:52.010
  • raccoon ambles up to him with
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:55.000
  • this Bible in his mouth, you
  • 00:22:55.000 --> 00:22:57.010
  • ready for that?
  • 00:22:57.010 --> 00:22:58.020
  • Cowboy took it and shouted,
  • 00:22:58.020 --> 00:22:59.030
  • "It's a miracle."
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:00.280
  • Raccoon says, "Not really, your
  • 00:23:00.280 --> 00:23:02.240
  • name's written on the inside
  • 00:23:02.240 --> 00:23:04.070
  • cover."
  • 00:23:04.090 --> 00:23:07.090
  • - Mike: Hey Keith, I have a
  • 00:23:07.090 --> 00:23:09.030
  • good mind to treat you like a
  • 00:23:09.030 --> 00:23:10.270
  • tardy cannibal and give you the
  • 00:23:10.270 --> 00:23:12.110
  • cold shoulder.
  • 00:23:12.240 --> 00:23:15.240
  • And by the way, do you know what
  • 00:23:15.240 --> 00:23:17.250
  • the red grape said when the
  • 00:23:17.250 --> 00:23:19.020
  • raccoon stepped on it?
  • 00:23:19.020 --> 00:23:20.160
  • - Keith: I'm afraid to ask, but
  • 00:23:20.160 --> 00:23:21.170
  • go ahead.
  • 00:23:21.170 --> 00:23:22.100
  • - Mike: It said nothing, it
  • 00:23:22.100 --> 00:23:23.040
  • just let out a little wine.
  • 00:23:23.040 --> 00:23:23.280
  • - Keith: Oh.
  • 00:23:23.280 --> 00:23:26.210
  • - Mike: All right, moving on,
  • 00:23:26.210 --> 00:23:28.080
  • Olympic gold medal wrestler and
  • 00:23:28.080 --> 00:23:30.250
  • Iowa icon Dan Gable has achieved
  • 00:23:30.250 --> 00:23:33.040
  • the ultimate Iowa honor, a
  • 00:23:33.040 --> 00:23:35.000
  • likeness of himself carved out
  • 00:23:35.000 --> 00:23:37.060
  • of a 3.000-pound wheel of
  • 00:23:37.060 --> 00:23:38.210
  • cheese.
  • 00:23:38.210 --> 00:23:39.240
  • It was created by renowned
  • 00:23:39.240 --> 00:23:41.020
  • cheese artist, who ever knew
  • 00:23:41.020 --> 00:23:42.160
  • there was such a thing, a cheese
  • 00:23:42.160 --> 00:23:43.250
  • artist, Sarah the Cheese Lady
  • 00:23:43.250 --> 00:23:46.060
  • Kaufman.
  • 00:23:46.060 --> 00:23:47.090
  • Gable said he never thought he'd
  • 00:23:47.090 --> 00:23:48.210
  • have a cheese that looked like
  • 00:23:48.210 --> 00:23:50.040
  • him, although sometimes his
  • 00:23:50.040 --> 00:23:51.260
  • opponents look like cheese.
  • 00:23:52.070 --> 00:23:55.070
  • In fact, when he got done with
  • 00:23:55.070 --> 00:23:56.040
  • them, nothing was left but de
  • 00:23:56.040 --> 00:23:57.020
  • brie.
  • 00:23:57.200 --> 00:24:00.220
  • In a related story, President
  • 00:24:00.220 --> 00:24:01.180
  • Trump has asked that all
  • 00:24:01.180 --> 00:24:02.280
  • citizens should begin shredding
  • 00:24:02.280 --> 00:24:04.060
  • their own cheese.
  • 00:24:04.060 --> 00:24:06.010
  • Why you ask?
  • 00:24:06.010 --> 00:24:07.270
  • Because he wants to make America
  • 00:24:07.270 --> 00:24:10.080
  • grate again.
  • 00:24:14.050 --> 00:24:17.050
  • Okay, a website is offering what
  • 00:24:17.050 --> 00:24:18.260
  • they call the perfect holiday
  • 00:24:18.260 --> 00:24:20.020
  • job.
  • 00:24:20.020 --> 00:24:21.030
  • No, it's not being Paula Deen's
  • 00:24:21.030 --> 00:24:22.150
  • gravy taster, that'd be a pretty
  • 00:24:22.160 --> 00:24:25.160
  • good job.
  • 00:24:25.160 --> 00:24:26.250
  • Now, they're offering to pay
  • 00:24:26.250 --> 00:24:27.240
  • someone 1000 bucks if they'll
  • 00:24:27.240 --> 00:24:29.140
  • watch 24 Hallmark channel
  • 00:24:29.140 --> 00:24:32.060
  • Christmas movies in 12 days.
  • 00:24:32.090 --> 00:24:35.090
  • That is 48 hours worth of
  • 00:24:35.090 --> 00:24:37.210
  • peppermint-scented holiday theme
  • 00:24:37.210 --> 00:24:39.110
  • romances and family dramas, and
  • 00:24:39.110 --> 00:24:41.070
  • tell all their friends about
  • 00:24:41.070 --> 00:24:43.250
  • what they saw on social media.
  • 00:24:43.250 --> 00:24:45.200
  • Now, this could be the only time
  • 00:24:45.220 --> 00:24:48.220
  • that you can legitimately argue
  • 00:24:48.220 --> 00:24:50.090
  • that a man should be paid more
  • 00:24:50.090 --> 00:24:52.120
  • than a woman for the same job.
  • 00:24:54.010 --> 00:24:57.010
  • Now, you realize I could go into
  • 00:24:57.010 --> 00:24:59.070
  • a whole run of Christmas puns
  • 00:24:59.070 --> 00:25:00.220
  • now, but I won't, even though
  • 00:25:00.220 --> 00:25:03.210
  • they do.
  • 00:25:05.260 --> 00:25:06.250
  • By the way, if you're interested
  • 00:25:06.250 --> 00:25:07.190
  • in being a Hallmark holiday
  • 00:25:07.190 --> 00:25:09.110
  • couch potato, you can visit
  • 00:25:09.110 --> 00:25:10.210
  • centurylinkquote.com.
  • 00:25:10.210 --> 00:25:13.030
  • I think I'll hold out until they
  • 00:25:13.030 --> 00:25:14.240
  • throw in a pair of extra large
  • 00:25:14.240 --> 00:25:16.160
  • Superman pajamas and maybe my
  • 00:25:17.090 --> 00:25:20.090
  • own personal cheese sculpture.
  • 00:25:21.190 --> 00:25:24.190
  • Okay, just like a clerk who
  • 00:25:24.190 --> 00:25:27.120
  • opens the door for a black
  • 00:25:27.120 --> 00:25:28.200
  • Friday sale, we got to get out
  • 00:25:28.200 --> 00:25:30.160
  • of the way.
  • 00:25:30.160 --> 00:25:31.210
  • But always remember, we read the
  • 00:25:31.210 --> 00:25:32.240
  • Well, recently I had the chance
  • 00:25:43.270 --> 00:25:44.200
  • to sit down in amazing little
  • 00:25:44.200 --> 00:25:46.120
  • diner in Mount Juliet, Tennessee
  • 00:25:46.120 --> 00:25:48.080
  • just outside of Nashville.
  • 00:25:48.080 --> 00:25:49.170
  • I sat there with an even more
  • 00:25:49.170 --> 00:25:51.130
  • amazing friend.
  • 00:25:51.130 --> 00:25:52.230
  • She is a Dove award-winning
  • 00:25:52.230 --> 00:25:54.170
  • Christian artist and a cast
  • 00:25:54.170 --> 00:25:55.290
  • member of the beloved show "Hee
  • 00:25:55.290 --> 00:25:57.290
  • Haw."
  • 00:25:57.290 --> 00:25:58.250
  • Here is my diner dive with Lulu
  • 00:25:58.250 --> 00:26:01.210
  • Lulu Roman, here we are at
  • 00:26:05.270 --> 00:26:06.210
  • Granny's Kitchen.
  • 00:26:06.210 --> 00:26:08.180
  • It is a pleasure to get to be
  • 00:26:08.180 --> 00:26:09.230
  • with you at one of your favorite
  • 00:26:09.230 --> 00:26:10.150
  • places to eat.
  • 00:26:10.150 --> 00:26:11.270
  • But while we're waiting on the
  • 00:26:11.270 --> 00:26:13.050
  • food, you've had a pretty
  • 00:26:13.050 --> 00:26:15.020
  • amazing career.
  • 00:26:15.020 --> 00:26:17.210
  • Let's go back to the early days
  • 00:26:17.210 --> 00:26:18.280
  • of Lulu Roman's life.
  • 00:26:18.280 --> 00:26:21.060
  • - Lulu Roman: Yeah, I had a
  • 00:26:21.060 --> 00:26:22.040
  • grandmother and a great
  • 00:26:22.040 --> 00:26:23.210
  • grandmother.
  • 00:26:23.210 --> 00:26:25.080
  • The great grandmother, she was
  • 00:26:25.080 --> 00:26:26.180
  • the one that I always wanted to
  • 00:26:26.270 --> 00:26:29.270
  • be like because she was sweet.
  • 00:26:30.070 --> 00:26:33.070
  • She would dress me up and put a
  • 00:26:33.070 --> 00:26:35.190
  • little dress on me, and I'd go
  • 00:26:35.190 --> 00:26:37.010
  • outside and just get dirty as I
  • 00:26:37.010 --> 00:26:38.160
  • could get, okay?
  • 00:26:38.160 --> 00:26:40.080
  • And come back and she would just
  • 00:26:40.080 --> 00:26:41.080
  • squeal, "Ahh!"
  • 00:26:41.080 --> 00:26:43.080
  • You know, 'cause her little
  • 00:26:43.080 --> 00:26:44.100
  • thing was cleanliness is next to
  • 00:26:44.100 --> 00:26:45.280
  • godliness.
  • 00:26:45.280 --> 00:26:46.290
  • That's the only thing my--that I
  • 00:26:46.290 --> 00:26:48.040
  • remember as a child doing other
  • 00:26:49.180 --> 00:26:52.180
  • than, you know, after they
  • 00:26:52.180 --> 00:26:54.080
  • placed me in the orphans home.
  • 00:26:54.080 --> 00:26:56.180
  • - Mike: Now, you kind of went
  • 00:26:56.180 --> 00:26:57.260
  • on a streak there, I mean, in
  • 00:26:57.260 --> 00:26:59.140
  • terms of you were a hippy.
  • 00:26:59.140 --> 00:27:02.090
  • - Lulu: Yeah, I was.
  • 00:27:02.090 --> 00:27:03.030
  • - Mike: I can't even see Lulu
  • 00:27:03.030 --> 00:27:04.010
  • Roman in the 60s and hippydom,
  • 00:27:04.070 --> 00:27:07.070
  • but that's who you were.
  • 00:27:07.070 --> 00:27:08.150
  • - Lulu: That's exactly who I
  • 00:27:08.150 --> 00:27:09.130
  • was.
  • 00:27:09.130 --> 00:27:10.100
  • I came out of the orphans home,
  • 00:27:10.200 --> 00:27:13.200
  • this was a religious orphanage,
  • 00:27:13.200 --> 00:27:16.040
  • and so when I came out, I
  • 00:27:16.040 --> 00:27:17.060
  • thought, "I've had enough.
  • 00:27:17.060 --> 00:27:19.120
  • I don't want nobody shaking
  • 00:27:19.120 --> 00:27:20.070
  • their finger in my face saying,
  • 00:27:20.070 --> 00:27:21.050
  • 'Thou shalt not.'"
  • 00:27:21.050 --> 00:27:22.210
  • 'Cause I thought,
  • 00:27:22.210 --> 00:27:23.120
  • "Oh yes, I wilt."
  • 00:27:23.120 --> 00:27:24.290
  • So, everything that I had been
  • 00:27:24.290 --> 00:27:26.180
  • taught I threw away, I did.
  • 00:27:26.180 --> 00:27:29.140
  • And I learned very quickly in
  • 00:27:29.220 --> 00:27:32.220
  • high school even that I could
  • 00:27:32.220 --> 00:27:34.270
  • smoke marijuana, or I could pop
  • 00:27:34.270 --> 00:27:37.230
  • a few pills, and I would get to
  • 00:27:37.230 --> 00:27:39.290
  • the place that I didn't hurt,
  • 00:27:39.290 --> 00:27:42.290
  • that my heart didn't hurt.
  • 00:27:42.290 --> 00:27:45.040
  • And I know of at least three
  • 00:27:45.040 --> 00:27:47.030
  • times I actively tried to commit
  • 00:27:47.030 --> 00:27:49.140
  • suicide and was not, you know--
  • 00:27:49.140 --> 00:27:52.000
  • - Mike: I'm glad you weren't
  • 00:27:52.000 --> 00:27:53.070
  • good at that.
  • 00:27:53.070 --> 00:27:54.070
  • - Lulu: Me too.
  • 00:27:54.070 --> 00:27:55.000
  • - Mike: You're much better at
  • 00:27:55.000 --> 00:27:56.020
  • comedy and music and all these
  • 00:27:56.020 --> 00:27:57.190
  • other things, you've done great
  • 00:27:57.190 --> 00:27:58.180
  • at that.
  • 00:27:58.180 --> 00:27:59.100
  • Suicide you weren't so hot at.
  • 00:27:59.100 --> 00:28:01.090
  • - Lulu: Didn't work so well,
  • 00:28:01.090 --> 00:28:02.000
  • no.
  • 00:28:02.000 --> 00:28:02.230
  • - Mike: But you know, and
  • 00:28:02.230 --> 00:28:03.120
  • truthfully, what was that moment
  • 00:28:03.120 --> 00:28:05.090
  • where the Lulu Roman of the past
  • 00:28:05.090 --> 00:28:07.110
  • became the Lulu Roman that we
  • 00:28:07.110 --> 00:28:09.210
  • love and know today?
  • 00:28:09.210 --> 00:28:11.070
  • - Lulu: It had to be the moment
  • 00:28:11.070 --> 00:28:13.050
  • that I asked Jesus into my life,
  • 00:28:13.050 --> 00:28:15.220
  • it had to be.
  • 00:28:15.220 --> 00:28:17.090
  • It felt like somebody had lifted
  • 00:28:17.090 --> 00:28:18.060
  • a 2.000-pound rock off of my
  • 00:28:18.060 --> 00:28:21.060
  • back and just throwing it
  • 00:28:21.060 --> 00:28:22.090
  • somewhere.
  • 00:28:22.090 --> 00:28:23.050
  • - Mike: I want to tell you,
  • 00:28:23.050 --> 00:28:23.270
  • this is the incredible book,
  • 00:28:23.270 --> 00:28:25.210
  • "This is My Story; This is My
  • 00:28:25.210 --> 00:28:26.200
  • Song."
  • 00:28:26.200 --> 00:28:28.030
  • But it's your story and it's a
  • 00:28:28.030 --> 00:28:29.000
  • great story of the life of
  • 00:28:29.000 --> 00:28:30.250
  • someone who really has gone from
  • 00:28:30.250 --> 00:28:33.220
  • maybe some of the worst places
  • 00:28:33.220 --> 00:28:35.230
  • in life to being one of the most
  • 00:28:35.230 --> 00:28:37.290
  • vivacious, lovely, still
  • 00:28:37.290 --> 00:28:39.150
  • entertaining, and beautiful
  • 00:28:39.150 --> 00:28:42.110
  • people I've ever met.
  • 00:28:42.110 --> 00:28:43.200
  • - Lulu: Thank you.
  • 00:28:43.200 --> 00:28:44.140
  • - Mike: I'm so glad to be able
  • 00:28:44.140 --> 00:28:45.090
  • to have a little dinner with
  • 00:28:45.090 --> 00:28:46.150
  • you.
  • 00:28:46.150 --> 00:28:47.080
  • - Lulu: Me too.
  • 00:28:47.080 --> 00:28:47.260
  • - Mike: Oh, here it comes.
  • 00:28:47.260 --> 00:28:48.210
  • Look out now.
  • 00:28:48.210 --> 00:28:49.280
  • - Mike: Vanessa, oh my
  • 00:28:51.290 --> 00:28:53.180
  • goodness.
  • 00:28:53.180 --> 00:28:54.290
  • Honey, this is good stuff, thank
  • 00:28:54.290 --> 00:28:55.210
  • you.
  • 00:28:55.210 --> 00:28:56.240
  • Tell me the history of Granny's

  • Kitchen.
  • 00:28:57.280 --> 00:28:59.020
  • - Vanessa Cartwright: The name

  • Granny, we have been--my mother

  • is 92 years old.
  • 00:29:01.220 --> 00:29:04.100
  • And every Sunday, the yard would
  • 00:29:05.060 --> 00:29:08.060
  • be full 'cause all the children
  • 00:29:08.060 --> 00:29:10.080
  • were there, the grandchildren,
  • 00:29:10.080 --> 00:29:11.260

  • might eat right off my plate,
  • 00:30:04.270 --> 00:30:06.230

  • - Sam Kuhnert: Thank you so
  • 00:32:53.200 --> 00:32:54.100
  • much.
  • 00:32:55.080 --> 00:32:58.080
  • - Mike: You, you didn't have
  • 00:32:58.080 --> 00:33:00.030
  • left hand, so when you were a
  • 00:33:00.060 --> 00:33:03.060
  • little kid, were other kids
  • 00:33:03.060 --> 00:33:05.140
  • mean?
  • 00:33:05.140 --> 00:33:06.060
  • Did they tease you?
  • 00:33:06.060 --> 00:33:06.270
  • - Sam: I actually experienced
  • 00:33:06.270 --> 00:33:07.190
  • about 14 years of bullying from
  • 00:33:07.190 --> 00:33:09.090
  • the time I was 4 till I was 18,
  • 00:33:09.090 --> 00:33:11.200
  • but thanks to my beautiful
  • 00:33:11.200 --> 00:33:12.230
  • mother who's out in this
  • 00:33:12.230 --> 00:33:13.240
  • audience, she was very
  • 00:33:13.240 --> 00:33:16.040
  • instilling in the Word of God to
  • 00:33:16.040 --> 00:33:17.260
  • me.
  • 00:33:17.260 --> 00:33:18.180
  • And I found Philippians 4:13, I
  • 00:33:18.180 --> 00:33:20.140
  • can do all things through Christ
  • 00:33:20.140 --> 00:33:21.290
  • who strengthens me, and just
  • 00:33:21.290 --> 00:33:23.010
  • made that my life motto.
  • 00:33:23.010 --> 00:33:24.090
  • And so despite being cut from
  • 00:33:24.090 --> 00:33:25.230
  • sixth, seventh, eighth grade
  • 00:33:25.230 --> 00:33:27.020
  • baseball, went on to play high
  • 00:33:27.020 --> 00:33:28.020
  • school baseball and even into
  • 00:33:28.020 --> 00:33:29.040
  • college.
  • 00:33:29.040 --> 00:33:29.260
  • - Mike: So Sam, how did it come
  • 00:33:29.260 --> 00:33:30.180
  • to you to start an organization
  • 00:33:30.180 --> 00:33:33.020
  • that would actually help these
  • 00:33:33.020 --> 00:33:33.260
  • kids?
  • 00:33:33.260 --> 00:33:34.150
  • - Sam: Well, you know, it was
  • 00:33:34.150 --> 00:33:35.060
  • that attitude of I can do all
  • 00:33:35.060 --> 00:33:36.020
  • things through Christ who
  • 00:33:36.020 --> 00:33:37.070
  • strengthens me that allowed me
  • 00:33:37.070 --> 00:33:39.060
  • to play sports up into high
  • 00:33:39.060 --> 00:33:39.290
  • school, which led to news
  • 00:33:39.290 --> 00:33:40.280
  • articles, which got an
  • 00:33:40.280 --> 00:33:42.220
  • organization to reach out and
  • 00:33:42.220 --> 00:33:44.020
  • said, "Hey, we do a camp for
  • 00:33:44.020 --> 00:33:45.250
  • kids with limb differences,
  • 00:33:45.250 --> 00:33:46.290
  • teach them life skills, and we
  • 00:33:46.290 --> 00:33:48.130
  • want to incorporate sports."
  • 00:33:48.130 --> 00:33:49.150
  • And I was like, "Absolutely."
  • 00:33:49.150 --> 00:33:51.020
  • But I got there and I saw
  • 00:33:51.020 --> 00:33:52.030
  • parents holding their kids back
  • 00:33:52.030 --> 00:33:53.130
  • out of fear of failure.
  • 00:33:53.130 --> 00:33:54.150
  • They were subjecting the kids to
  • 00:33:54.150 --> 00:33:56.010
  • one sport, and for me, that just
  • 00:33:56.010 --> 00:33:57.150
  • didn't sit right.
  • 00:33:57.150 --> 00:33:58.160
  • And so, I got to talking to one
  • 00:33:58.160 --> 00:33:59.230
  • of the moms, I'm like, "Why are
  • 00:33:59.230 --> 00:34:01.000
  • they being subjected to this
  • 00:34:01.000 --> 00:34:01.240
  • sport?"
  • 00:34:01.240 --> 00:34:02.130
  • And they're like, "We're just
  • 00:34:02.130 --> 00:34:03.040
  • afraid that they're going to
  • 00:34:03.040 --> 00:34:03.240
  • fail."
  • 00:34:03.240 --> 00:34:04.100
  • And I'm like, "Well, failure's a
  • 00:34:04.100 --> 00:34:05.020
  • part of life.
  • 00:34:05.020 --> 00:34:05.240
  • You've got to fail in order to
  • 00:34:05.240 --> 00:34:06.250
  • grow."
  • 00:34:06.250 --> 00:34:07.180
  • You know, you have to--you have
  • 00:34:07.180 --> 00:34:08.110
  • to lose in order to learn how to
  • 00:34:08.110 --> 00:34:09.280
  • win.
  • 00:34:09.280 --> 00:34:10.190
  • And after a night of wrestling
  • 00:34:10.190 --> 00:34:12.210
  • with God, him telling me, you
  • 00:34:12.210 --> 00:34:14.050
  • know, "You need to change this.
  • 00:34:14.050 --> 00:34:15.070
  • You need to change this."
  • 00:34:15.070 --> 00:34:16.010
  • And me being like, "Dude, I get
  • 00:34:16.010 --> 00:34:16.230
  • C's in school, I'm just here to
  • 00:34:16.230 --> 00:34:18.220
  • play sports."
  • 00:34:18.220 --> 00:34:20.020
  • But it just kept hitting me, and
  • 00:34:20.020 --> 00:34:22.010
  • so that next day I was like,
  • 00:34:22.010 --> 00:34:23.020
  • "Mom, I want to start a camp for
  • 00:34:23.020 --> 00:34:23.280
  • kids with limb differences,
  • 00:34:23.280 --> 00:34:25.160
  • amputees.
  • 00:34:25.160 --> 00:34:26.150
  • I want to have them have coached
  • 00:34:26.150 --> 00:34:27.130
  • by athletes who played at the
  • 00:34:27.130 --> 00:34:29.160
  • highest level of the mainstream
  • 00:34:29.160 --> 00:34:30.230
  • sport who were limb different."
  • 00:34:30.230 --> 00:34:32.040
  • So, it gives these kids a mentor
  • 00:34:32.040 --> 00:34:32.280
  • who looks like them to push them
  • 00:34:32.280 --> 00:34:34.190
  • and allow them to have no
  • 00:34:34.190 --> 00:34:35.180
  • excuses.
  • 00:34:35.180 --> 00:34:36.150
  • At our camp, can't is not
  • 00:34:36.150 --> 00:34:37.260
  • allowed.
  • 00:34:37.260 --> 00:34:38.270
  • If you say can't the first time,
  • 00:34:38.270 --> 00:34:40.000
  • you got five pushups.
  • 00:34:40.000 --> 00:34:41.100
  • You say can't the second time,
  • 00:34:41.100 --> 00:34:42.160
  • you got 50 pushups.
  • 00:34:42.160 --> 00:34:43.270
  • Third time, we've never gotten
  • 00:34:43.270 --> 00:34:45.040
  • there.
  • 00:34:45.040 --> 00:34:46.170
  • - Mike: I can believe that.
  • 00:34:46.170 --> 00:34:47.240
  • I mean, I can kind of see where
  • 00:34:47.240 --> 00:34:49.070
  • that would come from.
  • 00:34:49.070 --> 00:34:50.220
  • But what a powerful affirmation
  • 00:34:50.220 --> 00:34:53.080
  • that maybe not having a foot or
  • 00:34:53.080 --> 00:34:54.100
  • a hand or a limb does not mean
  • 00:34:54.100 --> 00:34:57.060
  • you don't have everything else
  • 00:34:57.060 --> 00:34:59.190
  • that it takes to be a wonderful,
  • 00:34:59.190 --> 00:35:00.290
  • very effective human being.
  • 00:35:00.290 --> 00:35:03.140
  • When you have an opportunity
  • 00:35:03.140 --> 00:35:04.160
  • through your organization,
  • 00:35:04.160 --> 00:35:05.220
  • NubAbility, you get these kids,
  • 00:35:05.220 --> 00:35:07.200
  • you talk to them, you coach
  • 00:35:07.200 --> 00:35:09.140
  • them, you mentor them, tell me
  • 00:35:09.140 --> 00:35:10.170
  • what happens.
  • 00:35:10.170 --> 00:35:11.120
  • - Sam: You know, the greatest
  • 00:35:11.120 --> 00:35:12.060
  • thing is some of the kids come
  • 00:35:12.060 --> 00:35:13.060
  • in, they're hiding their
  • 00:35:13.060 --> 00:35:14.040
  • differences.
  • 00:35:14.040 --> 00:35:15.010
  • You know, they're afraid to show
  • 00:35:15.010 --> 00:35:15.280
  • who they are.
  • 00:35:15.280 --> 00:35:17.200
  • And when they go through their
  • 00:35:17.200 --> 00:35:18.270
  • camps and go through our amazing
  • 00:35:18.270 --> 00:35:20.050
  • coaches and all the volunteers
  • 00:35:20.050 --> 00:35:21.150
  • and everybody who puts it on who
  • 00:35:21.150 --> 00:35:23.020
  • just welcomes them with open
  • 00:35:23.020 --> 00:35:24.140
  • arms, they leave showing their
  • 00:35:24.140 --> 00:35:25.290
  • differences, shining them in the
  • 00:35:25.290 --> 00:35:28.090
  • air, loving who they are, and
  • 00:35:28.090 --> 00:35:29.230
  • owning it, and that's what it's
  • 00:35:29.230 --> 00:35:30.290
  • all about.
  • 00:35:30.290 --> 00:35:31.270
  • - Mike: Oh my soul.
  • 00:35:31.270 --> 00:35:32.220
  • Do you have any idea--yeah, you
  • 00:35:32.220 --> 00:35:33.140
  • do have an idea.
  • 00:35:33.140 --> 00:35:34.120
  • I started saying, "Do you have
  • 00:35:34.120 --> 00:35:35.050
  • any idea how powerful that is?"
  • 00:35:35.050 --> 00:35:36.020
  • But of course you do 'cause you
  • 00:35:36.020 --> 00:35:37.010
  • work with these kids.
  • 00:35:37.010 --> 00:35:37.280
  • - Sam: It is incredible.
  • 00:35:37.280 --> 00:35:38.290
  • You know, God truly blessed me
  • 00:35:38.290 --> 00:35:41.030
  • back in 2011.
  • 00:35:41.030 --> 00:35:42.090
  • I was actually told that I was
  • 00:35:42.090 --> 00:35:43.240
  • going to die in a few weeks to a
  • 00:35:43.240 --> 00:35:45.110
  • few months.
  • 00:35:45.110 --> 00:35:46.160
  • And because of the power of
  • 00:35:46.160 --> 00:35:47.240
  • prayer, despite two weeks in the
  • 00:35:47.240 --> 00:35:49.070
  • hospital, had a lot of people
  • 00:35:49.070 --> 00:35:50.290
  • come together and pray for me,
  • 00:35:50.290 --> 00:35:52.090
  • and I'm here.
  • 00:35:52.090 --> 00:35:53.130
  • glad you are, and I'm glad
  • 00:35:55.150 --> 00:35:56.110
  • you're doing what you're doing.
  • 00:35:56.110 --> 00:35:57.110
  • If you or someone you love can

  • And "American Idol" winner Ruben

  • including a new jewelry line

  • that's literally saving women
  • 00:37:09.130 --> 00:37:11.190
  • from homelessness, sex
  • 00:37:11.190 --> 00:37:13.080
  • trafficking, and addiction.
  • 00:37:13.080 --> 00:37:15.200
  • Please welcome Missy Robertson.

  • - Missy Robertson: Thank you.
  • 00:37:19.050 --> 00:37:20.200
  • - Mike: It's hard to even
  • 00:37:20.200 --> 00:37:22.030
  • understand how big an issue it
  • 00:37:22.270 --> 00:37:25.270
  • is that women are homeless,
  • 00:37:25.270 --> 00:37:28.140
  • they're used as pieces of
  • 00:37:28.140 --> 00:37:29.250
  • property, treated as slaves in
  • 00:37:29.260 --> 00:37:32.260
  • sex trafficking, and obviously
  • 00:37:33.000 --> 00:37:36.000
  • that often leads to drug
  • 00:37:36.000 --> 00:37:37.020
  • addiction.
  • 00:37:37.020 --> 00:37:37.240
  • How big a problem is it?
  • 00:37:37.240 --> 00:37:38.150
  • - Missy: It's bigger than I
  • 00:37:38.150 --> 00:37:39.110
  • originally ever thought about.
  • 00:37:39.110 --> 00:37:41.020
  • You know, my view of sex
  • 00:37:41.020 --> 00:37:42.110
  • trafficking was the "Taken" film
  • 00:37:42.110 --> 00:37:45.100
  • with Liam Neeson, you know?
  • 00:37:45.100 --> 00:37:46.220
  • Like they're just shuttled away
  • 00:37:46.220 --> 00:37:48.130
  • to a foreign land and someone
  • 00:37:48.130 --> 00:37:49.240
  • has to go rescue them.
  • 00:37:49.240 --> 00:37:51.050
  • This is happening in our little
  • 00:37:51.050 --> 00:37:53.100
  • towns all across America by
  • 00:37:53.100 --> 00:37:55.150
  • people that you would never
  • 00:37:55.150 --> 00:37:57.100
  • dream, from their own parents,
  • 00:37:57.100 --> 00:38:00.060
  • from their friends, and from
  • 00:38:00.060 --> 00:38:02.240
  • actually from themselves just
  • 00:38:02.240 --> 00:38:04.220
  • because they've got to survive
  • 00:38:04.220 --> 00:38:06.120
  • and get that next high.
  • 00:38:06.120 --> 00:38:07.220
  • - Mike: You created a line of
  • 00:38:07.220 --> 00:38:09.220
  • jewelry.
  • 00:38:09.220 --> 00:38:10.140
  • I got a piece of it here, and
  • 00:38:10.140 --> 00:38:12.040
  • it's called Laminin, which I
  • 00:38:13.010 --> 00:38:16.010
  • don't know what that means.
  • 00:38:16.010 --> 00:38:17.080
  • So, what does that mean,
  • 00:38:17.080 --> 00:38:18.060
  • laminin?
  • 00:38:18.060 --> 00:38:19.050
  • - Missy: I cannot wait to tell
  • 00:38:19.050 --> 00:38:19.270
  • you.
  • 00:38:19.270 --> 00:38:20.090
  • So, laminin is a protein
  • 00:38:20.090 --> 00:38:21.140
  • molecule that is inside of our
  • 00:38:21.140 --> 00:38:22.220
  • bodies.
  • 00:38:22.220 --> 00:38:23.180
  • We have thousands and thousands
  • 00:38:23.180 --> 00:38:24.280
  • and thousands of them all
  • 00:38:24.280 --> 00:38:26.070
  • inside.
  • 00:38:26.070 --> 00:38:27.130
  • They hold all of our cells, all
  • 00:38:27.130 --> 00:38:29.080
  • of our ligaments, everything
  • 00:38:29.080 --> 00:38:30.250
  • together.
  • 00:38:30.250 --> 00:38:31.240
  • If you take one of these laminin
  • 00:38:31.240 --> 00:38:33.180
  • molecules and you blow it up
  • 00:38:33.180 --> 00:38:34.230
  • thousands of times under a
  • 00:38:34.230 --> 00:38:36.050
  • microscope, it's in a shape of
  • 00:38:36.050 --> 00:38:38.190
  • the cross.
  • 00:38:38.190 --> 00:38:39.190
  • And--
  • 00:38:39.190 --> 00:38:40.150
  • - Mike: Really?
  • 00:38:40.150 --> 00:38:41.100
  • - Missy: Yes.
  • 00:38:41.100 --> 00:38:42.050
  • So, you know, as a believer, I
  • 00:38:42.050 --> 00:38:44.010
  • don't believe in coincidences.
  • 00:38:44.010 --> 00:38:45.220
  • - Mike: No.
  • 00:38:45.220 --> 00:38:46.230
  • - Missy: And so, our mantra
  • 00:38:46.230 --> 00:38:47.240
  • verse for Laminin by Missy
  • 00:38:47.240 --> 00:38:48.260
  • Robertson is Colossians 1:17,
  • 00:38:48.260 --> 00:38:50.290
  • "He is before all things, and in
  • 00:38:50.290 --> 00:38:52.290
  • him all things hold together."
  • 00:38:52.290 --> 00:38:55.020
  • - Mike: That is powerful.
  • 00:38:55.020 --> 00:38:56.090
  • So, the name comes from that
  • 00:38:56.090 --> 00:38:57.260
  • protein inside of us, but in the
  • 00:38:57.260 --> 00:38:59.280
  • shape of the cross.
  • 00:38:59.280 --> 00:39:01.060
  • Now, like this piece right here,
  • 00:39:01.060 --> 00:39:03.040
  • a bracelet.
  • 00:39:03.040 --> 00:39:05.040
  • By the way, I understand that
  • 00:39:05.040 --> 00:39:06.130
  • every member of our studio
  • 00:39:06.130 --> 00:39:08.060
  • audience is getting their own
  • 00:39:08.060 --> 00:39:10.140
  • piece of jewelry from Laminin,
  • 00:39:12.050 --> 00:39:15.050
  • all the more reason that people
  • 00:39:15.050 --> 00:39:16.150
  • should come to our theatre and
  • 00:39:16.150 --> 00:39:18.050
  • come to the show.
  • 00:39:18.050 --> 00:39:19.090
  • They never know when they're
  • 00:39:19.090 --> 00:39:20.020
  • going to come away with
  • 00:39:20.020 --> 00:39:20.250
  • something.
  • 00:39:20.250 --> 00:39:21.140
  • - Missy: That's right.
  • 00:39:21.140 --> 00:39:22.080
  • - Mike: But let's talk about
  • 00:39:22.080 --> 00:39:23.210
  • not just the bracelet, I want to
  • 00:39:23.210 --> 00:39:26.020
  • talk about what the sale of this
  • 00:39:26.020 --> 00:39:26.280
  • bracelet is doing to help women.
  • 00:39:26.280 --> 00:39:29.160
  • It's one thing to say there's a
  • 00:39:29.160 --> 00:39:30.200
  • terrible problem, here's a
  • 00:39:30.200 --> 00:39:31.260
  • beautiful bracelet.
  • 00:39:31.260 --> 00:39:33.170
  • And it is gorgeous, but how does
  • 00:39:33.170 --> 00:39:34.250
  • that help someone?
  • 00:39:34.250 --> 00:39:37.090
  • - Missy: Well, when people ask
  • 00:39:37.090 --> 00:39:38.010
  • me that, they assume this is a
  • 00:39:38.010 --> 00:39:39.160
  • charity, that these women are
  • 00:39:39.160 --> 00:39:41.030
  • going to get paid no matter what
  • 00:39:41.030 --> 00:39:42.070
  • happens, and that's just not
  • 00:39:42.070 --> 00:39:43.070
  • true.
  • 00:39:43.070 --> 00:39:44.000
  • It's a business.
  • 00:39:44.000 --> 00:39:45.010
  • So, with the rise and fall of
  • 00:39:45.010 --> 00:39:46.030
  • this business is what happens to
  • 00:39:46.030 --> 00:39:47.210
  • the women.
  • 00:39:47.210 --> 00:39:48.190
  • And so, they are the ones who
  • 00:39:48.190 --> 00:39:50.130
  • market it, they run my company.
  • 00:39:50.130 --> 00:39:52.120
  • I have an ex-drug addict who
  • 00:39:52.120 --> 00:39:54.260
  • designed that.
  • 00:39:54.260 --> 00:39:55.290
  • They do it all.
  • 00:39:55.290 --> 00:39:57.200
  • And so, when people say, "How
  • 00:39:57.200 --> 00:39:59.090
  • can we help you, Missy?
  • 00:39:59.090 --> 00:40:00.240
  • How can we donate?"
  • 00:40:00.240 --> 00:40:02.030
  • You can't donate, but I'll tell
  • 00:40:02.030 --> 00:40:03.060
  • you how to help, it's three
  • 00:40:03.060 --> 00:40:04.050
  • words, buy the jewelry.
  • 00:40:04.050 --> 00:40:06.100
  • The more jewelry we sell, the
  • 00:40:06.100 --> 00:40:08.120
  • more women we can help, yes.
  • 00:40:08.120 --> 00:40:10.000
  • - Mike: And then the profits of
  • 00:40:10.000 --> 00:40:10.220
  • it, because it is a business,
  • 00:40:10.220 --> 00:40:12.140
  • the profits of it go back to
  • 00:40:12.140 --> 00:40:13.220
  • help them, employ them, give
  • 00:40:13.220 --> 00:40:14.230
  • them something to do other than
  • 00:40:14.230 --> 00:40:16.140
  • be used as sex slaves for some
  • 00:40:16.140 --> 00:40:18.240
  • hideous human being.
  • 00:40:18.240 --> 00:40:20.030
  • - Missy: And I've also learned
  • 00:40:20.030 --> 00:40:20.280
  • that it doesn't happen by
  • 00:40:20.280 --> 00:40:22.100
  • circumstance.
  • 00:40:22.100 --> 00:40:23.040
  • All of the sex and the unwanted
  • 00:40:23.040 --> 00:40:25.030
  • sex, the unwanted drugs, no
  • 00:40:25.050 --> 00:40:28.050
  • little girl says, "When I grow
  • 00:40:28.050 --> 00:40:30.140
  • up, I want to be a prostitute
  • 00:40:30.140 --> 00:40:31.090
  • and be hooked on drugs."
  • 00:40:31.090 --> 00:40:33.000
  • No one says that.
  • 00:40:33.000 --> 00:40:34.090
  • - Mike: Yeah.
  • 00:40:34.090 --> 00:40:35.140
  • - Missy: But they're learning
  • 00:40:35.140 --> 00:40:36.100
  • their identity, they're learning
  • 00:40:36.100 --> 00:40:37.160
  • their self-worth through their
  • 00:40:37.160 --> 00:40:38.230
  • parents and through the people
  • 00:40:38.230 --> 00:40:39.270
  • around them, and it's being
  • 00:40:39.270 --> 00:40:40.290
  • taken away because their own
  • 00:40:40.290 --> 00:40:42.170
  • parents haven't learned their
  • 00:40:42.170 --> 00:40:44.180
  • self-worth.
  • 00:40:44.180 --> 00:40:45.190
  • And so, it's a non-ending cycle
  • 00:40:46.000 --> 00:40:49.000
  • over and over and over again.
  • 00:40:49.000 --> 00:40:50.180
  • So, what Laminin does is we show
  • 00:40:50.180 --> 00:40:52.280
  • them each day, "You're worth
  • 00:40:52.280 --> 00:40:54.140
  • something.
  • 00:40:54.140 --> 00:40:55.080
  • You have a skill, you have the
  • 00:40:55.080 --> 00:40:56.220
  • brains to put that skill to
  • 00:40:56.220 --> 00:40:57.210
  • work."
  • 00:40:57.210 --> 00:40:58.160
  • When I first hired these women,
  • 00:40:58.160 --> 00:41:00.280
  • I hired someone to run my
  • 00:41:00.280 --> 00:41:02.070
  • company that did not have this
  • 00:41:02.070 --> 00:41:03.120
  • background because I was busy
  • 00:41:03.120 --> 00:41:04.240
  • filming.
  • 00:41:04.240 --> 00:41:05.260
  • That didn't quite work out.
  • 00:41:05.260 --> 00:41:07.130
  • So, now these women are doing
  • 00:41:07.130 --> 00:41:08.270
  • everything because they've
  • 00:41:08.270 --> 00:41:10.130
  • learned a self-worth and a
  • 00:41:10.130 --> 00:41:12.010
  • confidence that they can do
  • 00:41:12.010 --> 00:41:13.050
  • this.
  • 00:41:13.050 --> 00:41:13.280
  • And of course, we read
  • 00:41:13.280 --> 00:41:14.230
  • Scripture, we pray every day.
  • 00:41:14.230 --> 00:41:16.050
  • And actually, funny story, I
  • 00:41:16.050 --> 00:41:18.230
  • loaded them up into my Suburban,
  • 00:41:18.230 --> 00:41:20.180
  • took them down to Phil and Kay's
  • 00:41:20.180 --> 00:41:22.050
  • house just a few weeks ago and
  • 00:41:22.050 --> 00:41:23.160
  • said, "Sometimes, Ms. Missy
  • 00:41:23.160 --> 00:41:24.240
  • can't give you what you need."
  • 00:41:25.180 --> 00:41:28.180
  • They want to please me as a
  • 00:41:28.180 --> 00:41:29.210
  • celebrity.
  • 00:41:29.210 --> 00:41:31.000
  • You know, they understand that
  • 00:41:31.000 --> 00:41:32.100
  • whole Duck Dynasty world.
  • 00:41:32.100 --> 00:41:33.210
  • And sometimes, I feel like
  • 00:41:33.210 --> 00:41:35.200
  • sometimes I just maybe can't
  • 00:41:35.200 --> 00:41:36.220
  • connect quite with them and
  • 00:41:36.220 --> 00:41:38.050
  • their background.
  • 00:41:38.050 --> 00:41:39.020
  • But my father-in-law can.
  • 00:41:39.100 --> 00:41:42.100
  • And he--
  • 00:41:42.100 --> 00:41:44.040
  • - Mike: Well, Phil is so
  • 00:41:44.040 --> 00:41:45.020
  • gentle, that's the thing we've
  • 00:41:45.020 --> 00:41:45.280
  • seen about him.
  • 00:41:45.280 --> 00:41:46.190
  • - Missy: I'll say.
  • 00:41:46.190 --> 00:41:47.080
  • He is a self-proclaimed heathen
  • 00:41:47.080 --> 00:41:48.070
  • for sure.
  • 00:41:48.070 --> 00:41:49.110
  • And there's no bones about it.
  • 00:41:49.110 --> 00:41:51.260
  • But actually I will say, you
  • 00:41:51.260 --> 00:41:53.030
  • know, I took him down there, he
  • 00:41:53.030 --> 00:41:54.130
  • made us all hamburgers, Ms. Kay
  • 00:41:54.130 --> 00:41:56.080
  • was pouring sweet tea, and just
  • 00:41:56.080 --> 00:41:58.080
  • made the girls feel at home, of
  • 00:41:58.080 --> 00:41:59.110
  • course.
  • 00:41:59.110 --> 00:42:00.070
  • But he was very gentle and he
  • 00:42:00.070 --> 00:42:02.100
  • was very patient, but he was
  • 00:42:02.100 --> 00:42:05.010
  • very poignant.
  • 00:42:05.010 --> 00:42:06.070
  • And after he shared with them
  • 00:42:06.070 --> 00:42:08.020
  • the message of Jesus and how
  • 00:42:08.020 --> 00:42:09.190
  • Jesus can save through his blood
  • 00:42:09.190 --> 00:42:11.000
  • over and over and over again,
  • 00:42:11.000 --> 00:42:12.090
  • and no sin is too dark or deep
  • 00:42:12.090 --> 00:42:13.170
  • for Jesus to--
  • 00:42:13.170 --> 00:42:14.260
  • - Mike: They really needed to
  • 00:42:14.260 --> 00:42:15.220
  • hear that--
  • 00:42:15.220 --> 00:42:16.140
  • - Missy: They understand that,
  • 00:42:16.140 --> 00:42:17.110
  • yes, and they know Phil's story.
  • 00:42:17.110 --> 00:42:18.290
  • - Mike: Yeah.
  • 00:42:18.290 --> 00:42:19.240
  • - Missy: So, they could relate
  • 00:42:19.240 --> 00:42:20.180
  • to him.
  • 00:42:20.180 --> 00:42:21.150
  • And Jayce, we met Jayce at the
  • 00:42:21.150 --> 00:42:23.250
  • church building that day and we
  • 00:42:23.250 --> 00:42:24.270
  • baptized three of them into
  • 00:42:24.270 --> 00:42:26.020
  • Christ.
  • 00:42:26.020 --> 00:42:26.260
  • - Mike: That's a beautiful
  • 00:42:26.260 --> 00:42:27.260
  • thing.
  • 00:42:27.260 --> 00:42:28.160
  • - Missy: Yeah, so it's doing
  • 00:42:28.160 --> 00:42:29.100
  • great things.
  • 00:42:29.100 --> 00:42:30.160
  • - Mike: Well, it's an
  • 00:42:30.160 --> 00:42:31.120
  • incredible thing.
  • 00:42:31.120 --> 00:42:32.130

  • helping women.
  • 00:42:39.000 --> 00:42:41.160

  • 00:45:47.030 --> 00:45:48.140
  • Kids on the Block, whatever was
  • 00:45:48.140 --> 00:45:49.110
  • on, I was listening to it.
  • 00:45:49.110 --> 00:45:50.230
  • But as I grew older, I
  • 00:45:50.230 --> 00:45:52.050
  • understood why my mother was
  • 00:45:52.050 --> 00:45:53.160
  • such a huge fan of his, it's
  • 00:45:53.160 --> 00:45:54.250
  • because his voice was so
  • 00:45:54.250 --> 00:45:55.200
  • exceptional.
  • 00:45:55.200 --> 00:45:56.200
  • And for me to get an opportunity
  • 00:45:56.200 --> 00:45:58.100
  • to go around the country singing
  • 00:45:58.100 --> 00:45:59.280
  • his songs and bringing people
  • 00:45:59.280 --> 00:46:02.180
  • into the spirit of Luther
  • 00:46:02.180 --> 00:46:04.150
  • Vandross, 'cause people, like,
  • 00:46:04.150 --> 00:46:06.130
  • really feel connected to him and
  • 00:46:06.130 --> 00:46:07.260
  • his music in a way that I
  • 00:46:07.260 --> 00:46:08.270
  • haven't seen with any other
  • 00:46:08.270 --> 00:46:10.250
  • singer or maybe like Frank
  • 00:46:10.250 --> 00:46:12.030
  • Sinatra or something like that.
  • 00:46:12.030 --> 00:46:13.250
  • So for me, it's just a great
  • 00:46:13.250 --> 00:46:15.010
  • opportunity for me to go around
  • 00:46:15.010 --> 00:46:16.200
  • and sing these songs, and people
  • 00:46:16.200 --> 00:46:19.040
  • have a wonderful time when
  • 00:46:19.040 --> 00:46:20.250
  • they're at the concert.
  • 00:46:20.250 --> 00:46:22.130
  • - Mike: Well, the new project
  • 00:46:22.130 --> 00:46:23.060
  • that you've just released is
  • 00:46:23.060 --> 00:46:24.020
  • called "Ruben Sings Luther," a
  • 00:46:24.020 --> 00:46:25.050
  • tribute album.
  • 00:46:25.050 --> 00:46:26.110
  • You know, people love you, but
  • 00:46:26.110 --> 00:46:27.270
  • they love Luther.
  • 00:46:27.270 --> 00:46:28.240
  • And if they get you singing
  • 00:46:28.240 --> 00:46:30.070
  • Luther's stuff, I mean, that is
  • 00:46:30.070 --> 00:46:31.220
  • kind of the best of both worlds.
  • 00:46:31.220 --> 00:46:33.230
  • - Ruben: Well, I've had such a
  • 00:46:33.230 --> 00:46:34.190
  • great response because I was
  • 00:46:34.190 --> 00:46:36.070
  • kind of skeptical at first about
  • 00:46:36.070 --> 00:46:37.130
  • doing it because people have
  • 00:46:37.130 --> 00:46:38.170
  • such an infinity for Luther.
  • 00:46:38.170 --> 00:46:41.050
  • They love his music and I, you
  • 00:46:41.050 --> 00:46:42.040
  • know, had to make sure that if I
  • 00:46:42.040 --> 00:46:43.260
  • was going to do it, I had to do
  • 00:46:43.260 --> 00:46:45.090
  • it absolutely right.
  • 00:46:45.090 --> 00:46:46.140
  • And my mom was standing over me
  • 00:46:46.140 --> 00:46:48.270
  • at every point like, "You better
  • 00:46:48.270 --> 00:46:51.180
  • make sure this is good."
  • 00:46:51.180 --> 00:46:52.190
  • - Mike: No dinner for you if
  • 00:46:52.190 --> 00:46:53.220
  • you don't do it right.
  • 00:46:53.220 --> 00:46:54.190
  • - Ruben: Well, you know I buy
  • 00:46:54.190 --> 00:46:55.170
  • my own dinner now, I don't have
  • 00:46:55.170 --> 00:46:56.210
  • to worry about that.
  • 00:46:56.210 --> 00:46:57.180
  • But I had to make sure that it
  • 00:46:57.180 --> 00:46:59.060
  • was right for her in particular
  • 00:46:59.060 --> 00:47:01.050
  • because I knew how much she
  • 00:47:01.050 --> 00:47:02.070
  • cared about his music.
  • 00:47:02.070 --> 00:47:03.220
  • So, I wanted--if she liked it, I
  • 00:47:03.220 --> 00:47:05.040
  • knew everybody else would love
  • 00:47:05.040 --> 00:47:05.290
  • it.
  • 00:47:05.290 --> 00:47:06.170
  • - Mike: What's been the biggest
  • 00:47:06.170 --> 00:47:07.090
  • thrill you have had since
  • 00:47:07.090 --> 00:47:09.030
  • winning "American Idol?"
  • 00:47:09.030 --> 00:47:10.110
  • I mean, that has launched a lot
  • 00:47:10.110 --> 00:47:12.260
  • of careers and put people on the
  • 00:47:12.260 --> 00:47:14.150
  • charts and on the map in a way
  • 00:47:14.150 --> 00:47:16.090
  • that nothing else did.
  • 00:47:16.090 --> 00:47:17.130
  • - Ruben: I think the biggest
  • 00:47:17.130 --> 00:47:18.090
  • thrill for me was absolutely
  • 00:47:18.090 --> 00:47:19.240
  • getting an opportunity to see
  • 00:47:19.240 --> 00:47:20.210
  • the dreams and the goals that I
  • 00:47:20.210 --> 00:47:23.170
  • set for myself as a young person
  • 00:47:23.170 --> 00:47:25.200
  • come to life.
  • 00:47:25.200 --> 00:47:26.260
  • A lot of times, everybody
  • 00:47:26.260 --> 00:47:28.200
  • doesn't get that opportunity.
  • 00:47:28.200 --> 00:47:30.140
  • And so, for me, telling people
  • 00:47:30.140 --> 00:47:31.230
  • my whole life that this is what
  • 00:47:31.230 --> 00:47:33.020
  • I was going to do and actually
  • 00:47:33.020 --> 00:47:34.200
  • watching it happening for me was
  • 00:47:34.200 --> 00:47:35.260
  • such a blessing.
  • 00:47:35.260 --> 00:47:37.120
  • And I'm just so thankful that
  • 00:47:37.120 --> 00:47:38.070
  • God gave me an opportunity to
  • 00:47:38.070 --> 00:47:39.120
  • live my dream out in the way
  • 00:47:39.120 --> 00:47:41.150
  • that I saw it.
  • 00:47:41.150 --> 00:47:42.110
  • There was no way I was ever
  • 00:47:42.110 --> 00:47:44.180
  • trying to leave that place.
  • 00:47:44.180 --> 00:47:45.230
  • I wanted to be there as long as
  • 00:47:45.230 --> 00:47:46.150
  • I possibly could, and the only
  • 00:47:46.150 --> 00:47:48.080
  • thing that stood in my way from
  • 00:47:48.080 --> 00:47:49.050
  • winning was my friend Clay, and
  • 00:47:49.050 --> 00:47:51.150
  • I beat him, I beat you.
  • 00:47:51.150 --> 00:47:53.150
  • I beat you.
  • 00:47:53.150 --> 00:47:54.180
  • - Mike: Yes, you did.
  • 00:47:54.180 --> 00:47:55.090
  • Well, America celebrated your
  • 00:47:55.090 --> 00:47:57.270
  • winning "American Idol" back on
  • 00:47:57.270 --> 00:47:58.280
  • season two.
  • 00:47:58.280 --> 00:47:59.270
  • I'm so proud to see the career
  • 00:47:59.270 --> 00:48:01.290
  • still going well.
  • 00:48:01.290 --> 00:48:03.040
  • - Ruben: Thank you.
  • 00:48:03.040 --> 00:48:03.280
  • - Mike: Now, Ruben didn't come
  • 00:48:03.280 --> 00:48:05.080
  • here just to talk.
  • 00:48:05.080 --> 00:48:06.090
  • You know, we're not going to let
  • 00:48:06.090 --> 00:48:07.010
  • him do that, we're going to get
  • 00:48:07.010 --> 00:48:07.230
  • him ready to sing.
  • 00:48:07.230 --> 00:48:08.160
