THE UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS

WERE RELEASED TODAY, 7.9%

UNEMPLOYED, AND IT LOOKS

LIKE OBAMA WILL BE THE FIRST

PRESIDENT SINCE FRANKLIN

ROOSEVELT TO FACE THE

ELECTORATE WITH UNEMPLOYMENT

AT THIS RATE.

IT IS NOT GOOD.

WE'LL TELL YOU MORE ABOUT

THAT A LITTLE BIT LATER.

WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT SANDY'S

AFTERMATH.

PEOPLE IN STATEN ISLAND, I

LIVED ON STATEN ISLAND.

Terry: I REMEMBER

THAT.

Pat: I HAD A LOVELY

PLACE ON STATEN ISLAND, TOTE

HILL ROAD, AND TOTE HILL

MEANS DEATH.

IT WAS DOWN THE STREET FROM

A GRAVEYARD.

ANYWAY, WE OVERLOOKED THE

HARBOR.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE.

THEY'RE SEARCHING FOR FOOD.

PEOPLE DON'T HAVE POWER,

ELECTRICITY.

IT'S FREEZING COLD.

WE'RE PRAYING ABOUT THAT.

Terry: AND WE WERE ALSO

TALKING ABOUT THE

STATISTICS, THE UNEMPLOYMENT

RATE, LOTS OF BUSINESSES

TODAY ARE SAYING ONE BIG

REASON THEY WON'T HIRE MORE

WORKERS COMES FROM

WASHINGTON, BECAUSE OF

GOVERNMENT RED TAPE AND

REGULATIONS.

JENNIFER WISHON BRINGS US UP

TO DATE ON THAT STORY.

Reporter: FRANK AND

NANCY BARNETT RUN THEIR

BUSINESS OUT OF THEIR

BASEMENT IN ROYAL VIRGINIA.

INDUSTRIAL MAINTENANCE

DISTRIBUTES PRODUCTS TO

REPAIR AND PROTECT

PRACTICALLY ANYTHING, FROM

HOLES TO NAVY VESSELS TO

LEAKY PIPES.

LEAKY PIPES IN BOILERS,

THINGS OF THAT NATURE.

EVERYTHING IS UNCERTAIN.

NOBODY KNOWS WHAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN TOMORROW.

WE WOULD LOVE TO BE IN A

SITUATION WHERE WE COULD

HIRE MORE FULL-TIME PEOPLE.

THE DIFFICULTY IS AT WHAT

COST.

Reporter: SMALL

BUSINESSES EMPLOY MORE THAN

HALF OF THE NATION'S PRIVATE

SECTOR WORKFORCE.

THEY ARE VITAL THAT THE

BUSINESS RECOVERY.

BUT THEY SAY THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT IS BUILDING

BARRIERS.

LIKE THE BARNETTS, 67% OF

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS

BELIEVE THERE IS TOO MUCH

UNCERTAINTY TO GROW THEIR

BUSINESSES.

WHAT IS CAUSING THIS

HANDWRINGING?

TAXES, GOVERNMENT

REGULATION, AND RED TAPE.

EVEN WITH ONLY FIVE

EMPLOYEES, THE BARNETTS

SPEND FOUR TO SIX HOURS A

WEEK GOING THROUGH

REGULATIONS, OFTEN

CONSULTING WITH THEIR

ACCOUNTANT AND ATTORNEY TO

MAKE SURE THEY'RE IN

COMPLIANCE.

IT FORCES ALL OF US TO

LOOK AT STAYING AROUND NINE

OR 10 EMPLOYEES, SO WE DON'T

HAVE TO RUN INTO A FULL-TIME

COMPLIANCE OFFICER, WE'RE

NOT FACING THESE MASSIVE

FINES.

Reporter: DAN BOSH

REVIEWS REGULATORY POLICIES

AT THE NATIONAL FEDERATION

OF PENTAGON BUSINESS.

INDEPENDENT BUSINESS.

RIGHT NOW THERE ARE OVER

4100 REGULATIONS IN THE

PIPELINE THAT ARE DUE TO

COME OUT, AND THEY'RE

UNCERTAIN HOW IT IS GOING TO

AFFECT THEIR BUSINESS.

DO YOU HAVE TO BE A

LAWYER TO KNOW EVERYTHING

YOU HAVE TO KNOW?

EVEN IF YOU'RE A LAWYER,

YOU PROBABLY WON'T KNOW

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: NEARLY 70% OF

BUSINESS OWNERS BLAME OBAMA

POLICIES FOR STIFLING THEIR

BREATHE.

Reporter: I WONDER WHY

FEEDBACK THE PRESIDENT HAS

RECEIVED FROM SMALL BUSINESS

OWNERS, AND IF HE HAS ANY

CONCERNS THAT HIS FEDERAL

REGULATIONS ARE STIFLING

ECONOMIC GROWTH AMONG SMALL

BUSINESSES.

PIES THIS PRESIDENT IS

COMMITTED TO HELPING SMALL

BUSINESS, AS EVIDENCED BY

THE FACT HE HAS PROPOSED AND

SIGNED INTO LAW 18 SMALL

BUSINESS TAX CUTS.

HE UNDERSTANDS CLEARLY THAT

SMALL BUSINESSES ARE THE

ENGINE OF ECONOMIC GROWTH IN

THIS COUNTRY.

MAYBE HE CAN SEND ME

SOMETHING TO SHOW ME HOW

THOSE TAX CUTS IMPACT MY

BUSINESS.

I'M NOT SURE WE'VE SEEN ANY

THAT WOULD HELP US.

Reporter: AT A TIME

WHEN MORE THAN 12 MILLION

AMERICANS DESPERATELY NEED

WORK, 55% OF SMALL BUSINESS

OWNERS SAY THEY WOULD NOT

START THEIR COMPANY TODAY.

IF YOU WERE SITTING DOWN

WITH YOUR HUSBAND, THINKING

ABOUT STARTING THIS

BUSINESS, WOULD YOU DO IT?

UM...WE'VE NEVER

DISCUSSED THIS.

IF WE WERE MAKING THAT

EVALUATION NOW, I DON'T

THINK THE BUSINESS PLAN

WOULD PROVE OUT.

WHETHER WE WANTED TO DO IT

OR HAD THE SKILLS, I JUST

DON'T THINK THE BUSINESS

PLANS WOULD BE WILL IN

TODAY'S WORLD.

Reporter: BUT BOSH SAYS

ELIMINATING FEDERAL

REGULATIONS WOULD BE TOUGH

FOR WHOEVER SITS IN THE

WHITE HOUSE.

REGULATIONS ARE SO EN

ENTRENCHED IN THE AGENCY, IT

IS PRETTY HARD TO GET THEM

OUT.

THEY'RE PRETTY RELUCK TAN TO

RELUCTANT TO HIRE.

WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO

HIRE, BUT IF WE COULD GET

SOME LONG-RANGE PLANNING

OPPORTUNITIES, THIS ECONOMY

COULD REALLY TAKE OFF

AGAIN.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS, VIRGINIA.

Pat: ISN'T IT AMAZING

THAT THE GOVERNMENT WORKERS

LOOK AT BUSINESS AS THE

ENEMY.

AND THEIR JOB IS TO CATCH

THEM AND TO RESTRICT THEM

AND TO FORCE THEM INTO THEIR

MOLD, AND HAVING WRITTEN THE

REGULATIONS, IF THE

BUSINESSES WON'T ABIDE BY

THEIR REGULATIONS, HAIR

THEY'RE NOT IN COMPLIANCE,

AND THEY'RE GOING TO GET

FINED AND SHUT DOWN.

BECAUSE THE BUREAUCRATS

THINK THE BUSINESS IS THE

ENEMY.

THAT'S JUST THE WAY THEY

ARE.

OBAMA SAYS HE HELPED THE

BUSINESSES.

4100 REGULATIONS IN THE

PIPELINE THAT HAVEN'T EVEN

COME INTO EFFECT.

AND BUSINESSES BEING

SMOTHERED.

IT TAKES HUNDREDS OF

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF COSTS

TO TAKE CARE OF ALL THESE

REGULATIONS.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?

THIS WHOLE THING NEEDS TO

BE, YOU KNOW, SWEPT CLEAN.

I DON'T KNOW IF GOVERNOR

ROMNEY WINS THE ELECTION,

WHETHER HE'S GOING TO HAVE

WHAT IT TAKES TO CUT THROUGH

ALL OF THIS.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANYBODY CAN

BECAUSE THERE IS THIS

INCESTUOUS RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN THE ENTRENCHED

BUREAUCRATS AND THE

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERSHIP,

AND OTHERS WHO COME INTO

OFFICE.

AND IT IS VERY HARD TO BREAK

THAT NEXUS.

Terry: ON AN AGENCY

ONCE CREATED, IT IS

DIFFICULT.

Pat: IT IS.

IT IS.

THAT'S THE MINDSET OF THE

BUREAUCRAT.

THE BUREAUCRAT WRITES THE

REGULATION.

MAYBE HE HAS NOBLE THOUGHTS

ABOUT IT.

HE PUTS THAT REGULATION IN

PLACE.

BUSINESSES ALL ACROSS THE

COUNTRY SAY THIS THING IS

KILLING US.

WE CAN'T ABIDE BY IT.

SO ONE OF THE BUREAUCRATS

SAYS THEY'RE GOING TO KEEP

MY REGULATION OUR THEY'RE

GOING TO GO TO JAIL OR

THEY'RE GOING TO BE FINED,

OR THEY ARE GOING TO BE PUT

OUT OF BUSINESS.

THEY'RE THE ENEMY.

Terry: EVEN TURNING

AWAY FROM THE LEAD, SAYING

THAT THE REGULATION IS IN

PLACE, FOLLOW IT, WITHOUT

ANY UNDERSTANDING.

WHY ARE THE REGULATIONS NOT

LOOKED AT BASED ON

CONVERSATIONS WITH PEOPLE

WHO ARE IN BUSINESS, WHO ARE

JOB CREATORS.

IT IS LIKE COMMON SENSE IS

NOT A PART OF THE EQUATION.

Pat: BUREAUCRATS ARE

NOT NOTED FOR THEIR COMMON

SENSE.

THEY LIVE BY RULES AND

REGULATIONS, AND THAT'S

THEIR LIFE.

AND IT'S JUST -- LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THAT'S THE

PROBLEM.

AND WE'VE MET THE ENEMY, AND

THE ENEMY IS US.

THAT'S WHAT IT AMOUNTS TO.

WE'RE CAUSING THE PROBLEM.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT TO

HAVE A CHANGE.

IF THERE IS A MASSIVE CHANGE

IN THE CONGRESS, AND THERE

IS A MASSIVE CHANGE IN THE

ADMINISTRATION, IN THE WHITE

HOUSE, AND THERE IS A

MASSIVE HOUSE CLEANING HONK

AMONG THE AGENCIES, YOU

MIGHT HAVE SOME CHANGE.

BUT IT HAS GOT TO BE FROM

THE VERY TOP DOWN, BUSINESS

IS OUR FRIEND, NOT THE

ENEMY.

THEY HAVE GOT TO HAVE THAT

MINDSET, AND THEN THEY GO

FROM THERE.

PEOPLE IN THE NEW YORK AREA

ARE FACING MORE IMMEDIATE

PROBLEM, RECOVERING FROM

THIS DEVASTATING HURRICANE.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Lee: PAT, FRUSTRATION

IS GROWING IN NEW YORK AFTER

SUPERSTORM SANDY.

MANY IN THAT AREA HAVE BEEN

WITHOUT POWER, GASOLINE, AND

EVEN FOOD AND WATER FOR FOUR

STRAIGHT DAYS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: HOUR-LONG

TRAGIC JAMS, MILE-LONG LINES

OF PEOPLE WAITING FOR BUSES

AND GAS, AND STILL HUNDREDS

WITHOUT ELECTRICITY, FOOD,

OR CLEAN WATER.

IN NEW YORK CITY, PATIENCE

IS WEARING THIN.

WHERE ARE THE BUSES?

Reporter: HOUSES OF

COMMUTERS WAIT IN LINES FOR

BUSES TO TAKE THEM INTO THE

CITY.

CON EDISON SAYS THEY HOPE TO

HAVE POWER RESTORED BY THE

WEEKEND OF NOVEMBER 10th.

THAT'S A WHOLE OTHER WEEK

WITH NO LIGHTS, HEAT, OR

WATER.

RESIDENTS OF THIS LOWER

MANHATTAN NEIGHBOURHOOD SAY

THEY FEEL FORGOTTEN.

THEY HAVE NO VALUE.

THEY SEE THAT OTHER AREAS

ARE TAKEN CARE OF AND THEY

TOTALLY OVERLOOKED US.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PARTNERING WITH SEVERAL

CHURCHES IN THOSE

NEIGHBORHOODS.

THEY ARE BRINGING IN BADLY

NEEDED FOOD AND WATER TO

HELP THE VICTIMS GET THROUGH

THE CRISIS AND LOOKING TO

RESTORE HOPE.

WE'RE HERE DELIVERING

FOOD, DIAPERS, OUR MOBILE

KITCHEN IS EN ROUTE NOW, AND

WE'LL BE SERVING HOT MEALS

TONIGHT TO THE PEOPLE WHO

NEED IT MOST DESPERATELY.

A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T

HAVE ELECTRICITY, DON'T HAVE

HOT WATER, AND WOULD

DEFINITELY NEED A GOOD

MEAL.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE SO EXCITED

TO SEE "OPERATION BLESSING"

HERE.

Reporter: STATEN ISLAND

WAS THE HARDEST HIT HOME.

MANY ARE NOW HOMELESS AND

THEY ARE SAYING THEY ARE

SEEING NO RESPONSE.

WE'RE GOING TO DIE.

WE'RE GOING TO FREEZE.

WE'VE GOT 90-YEAR-OLD

PEOPLE.

Reporter: IN NEW

JERSEY, UTILITIES SAY THE

POWER OUTAGES COULD LAST

UNTIL LATE NOVEMBER.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Lee: THE STANDOFF WITH

IRAN HAS MADE SUPPORT FOR

ISRAEL AN ISSUE IN THIS

PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

ERIC STACKELBACH SAT DOWN

WITH A PRIME MINISTER WHO

SAYS ITS COUNTRY IS READY TO

DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO.

Reporter: HE IS

CHAIRMAN OF THE

INTERNATIONAL BRANCH OF

NETANYAHU LIKUD PARTY.

HE ARGUES THAT ISRAELIS

SHOULD CONTROL THEIR OWN

DESTINY, DESPITE HEAVY

PRESSURE FROM THE U.S. AND

THE U.N.

THIS IS ESPECIALLY

IMPORTANT, HE SAYS, WHEN IT

COMES TO IRAN'S RAPIDLY

ADVANCING NUCLEAR WEAPONS

PROGRAM.

WE ARE GETTING READY TO

TAKE ACTION WITH OR WITHOUT

THE U.S.

IT COULD BE A JOINT EFFORT

BY THE U.S. AND EUROPE, NOT

ONLY ISRAEL.

BUT IF THE WORLD WILL BE

SILENT, WE WILL NOT BE

SILENT.

IF WE HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN

ALLOWING IRAN TO BUILD A

BOMB OR TO BOMB IRAN, WE

WILL CHOOSE THE SECOND

OPTION AND BOMB IRAN.

Reporter: THE

UNAPOLOGETIC DEFENSE OF

ISRAEL RESONATES WITH A

GROWING NUMBER OF ISRAELIS

WHO ARE TRYING OF GIVING UP

LAND FOR PEACE, ONLY TO GET

MORE WAR FROM THEIR MUSLIM

NEIGHBORS.

ENOUGH WITH GIVING LAND,

ENOUGH WITH OBAMA TELLING US

TO GO BACK TO THE 67 LINES.

WE WILL NOT DO IT.

WE WILL BUILD.

Reporter: HE SAYS

ISRAEL'S CLAIM TO THE LAND

IS ABOUT MUCH MORE THAN

SECURITY.

IT IS ABOUT A COVENANT.

TELL US WHY JUDEA AND

SOMARIA ARE SO IMPORTANT FOR

ISRAEL TO KEEP?

WE HAVE BIBLICAL RIGHTS.

IT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

IT BELONGS TO THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

FOR ME IT IS ENOUGH.

I BELIEVE MORE THAN THAT.

Reporter: ERIC

STACKELBACH, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Lee: PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: LEE, THAT IS TOUGH

TALK COMING OUT OF ISRAEL,

BUT I BELIEVE THE JEWISH

PEOPLE DESERVE THAT.

IT IS AMAZING.

I BELIEVE THAT NETANYAHU IS

THE SAME THING.

THEY'VE BEEN PRESSURED BY

THE UNITED STATES, MAKE

CONCESSIONS, DON'T UPSET THE

ARABS.

JUST THE LOCATION OF THE

AMERICAN EMBASSY, IT IS IN

TEL AVIV.

THE CONGRESS HAS VOTED TO

MOVE IT TO JERUSALEM, BUT

THE STATE DEPARTMENT REFUSES

TO DO IT BECAUSE IT MIGHT,

QUOTE,"OFFEND THE ARABS."

JERUSALEM IS THE CAPITAL OF

ISRAEL, BUT OUR STATE

DEPARTMENT WON'T ACKNOWLEDGE

THAT.

SMALL WONDER THEY'RE HAVING

PROBLEMS.

BUT IT IS SURVIVAL.

I DON'T THINK THEY WANT

ANOTHER HOLOCAUST.

THE JEWS ARE NOT GOING TO

HAVE ANOTHER HOLOCAUST.

THEY HAVE WHAT IS CALLED

THAT MASODEM IN TOWN THAT

SAYS IF WE'RE GOING DOWN,

WE'RE GOING DOWN.

BUT WE'RE NOT GOING TO GIVE

IN ANY LONG.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE

SLAUGHTERED BY OUR ENEMIES.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO PUT OUR

HOMELAND AT RISK OF A

NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO LET IT

HAPPEN.

YOU CAN'T BLAME THEM.

LEE?

Lee: HERE AT HOME,

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WILL

TAKE TIME OFF FROM THE

PRESIDENTIAL RACE TO AN

IMPORTANT SHOWDOWN IN

COLLEGE FOOTBALL.

FOR ONE FAMILY IN ALABAMA,

THE GAME WILL HAVE A VERY

SPECIAL MEANING.

ANDREW KNOX HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: THE COLLEGE

FOOTBALL RIVALRY BETWEEN

AUBURN AND ALABAMA IS ONE OF

THE OLDEST AND FIERCEST IN

THE COUNTRY.

FOOTBALL IS LIFE, YOU

KNOW, DOWN HERE.

Reporter: JEREMY

PEOPLES WAS CAUGHT IN THE

MIDDLE OF THAT RIVALRY.

HIS MOM WENT TO ALABAMA, AND

HIS DAD WENT TO AUBURN.

WHEN IT CAME TIME FOR JEREMY

TO PLAY BALL, MOM AND DAD

HAD THEIR SAY, HE HAD A

DIFFERENT PLAN.

I WAS PRAYING, AND GOD

PUT IN MY HEART L.S.U.

MY PARENTS DIDN'T SAY TOO

MUCH AT FIRST, BUT I WAS

LIKE, HEY, I FEEL LIKE THIS

IS WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO DO

AND THEY SUPPORTED IT.

Reporter: BUT A HIGH

SCHOOL PLAYER DOESN'T JUST

WALK INTO ONE OF THE BEST

COLLEGES IN THE COUNTRY.

HE HAD NO OFFERS FROM L.S.U.

IT WAS FAITH TO TURN DOWN

SCHOLARSHIP OFFERS TO COME

TO A PLACE WHERE MY FUTURE

IS UNCERTAIN IN MY EYES.

IT IS NEVER UNCERTAIN TO

GOD.

HE SEES THE END FROM THE

BEGINNING.

IT GREW MY FAITH.

Reporter: IN HIS

SOPHOMORE YEAR, JEREMY MADE

THE TEAM, BUT HE GOT NO

PLAYING TIME, WHICH WAS HARD

FOR SOMEBODY WHO WAS ALWAYS

A STARTER.

BUT HE PRAYED ABOUT IT, AND

ONE NIGHT HE HAD A DREAM.

GOD WANTED HIM TO STAY AT

L.S.U.

HE TALKED HIS DECISION OVER

WITH HIS MOM.

I REMEMBER SAYING, MOM,

I'M JUST GOING TO STAY

HERE.

I FEEL LIKE THIS IS WHAT GOD

WANTS ME TO DO.

I'VE BEEN PRAYING ABOUT IT

AND SEEKING THE LORD, AND I

REALLY FEEL LIKE THIS IS

WHAT THE LORD WANTS.

SHE SAID, IT'S A GOOD THING

TO FOLLOW GOD.

IF THAT'S WHAT HE IS SAYING,

YOU DO THAT.

ONE THING IS YOU PUT YOUR

HEAD DOWN AND YOU WORK AND

KEEP GRINDING.

PUT YOUR HARD HAT ON, BRING

YOUR LUNCH PAIL, AND WORK.

AND IN DUE TIME, GOD WILL

LIFT YOU UP.ú2

Reporter: JEREMY PUT IN

THE HARD WORK AND IT PAID

OFF.

THIS SEASON HE MADE SPECIAL

TEAMS AND HAS SEEN SOME

PLAYING TIME.

STILL, THE QUESTION REMAINS:

ARE THEY ROOTING FOR L.S.U.

AT HOME IN SALMA, ALABAMA.

THEY ROOT FOR L.S.U., BUT

AT THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

GAME, MY SISTERS WERE

RIDICULOUS, I HEARD.

I WAS ON THE SIDE, BUT I

HEARD.

I'M TRYING TO DO THEM

RIGHT.

Reporter: JEREMY IS

STUDYING POLITICAL SINUS AND

SINUS -- POLITICAL SCIENCE

AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES.

AND HE OBEYS GOD.

I WORK AS HARD AS I CAN,

DO WHAT I CAN, AND LET THE

CHIPS FALL WHERE THEY MAY.

I SAID, LORD, I WOULD PURSUE

A CAREER IN FOOTBALL.

I LIKE THE GAME.

IT'S UP TO YOU.

Lee: JEREMY PEOPLES, WE

WILL BE WATCHING FOR HIM

TOMORROW NIGHT.

IT SHOULD BE A GREAT GAME.

I'M WEARING A PURPLE TIE.

I'M AN AUBURN GRAD, BUT I'M

SUFFERING THROUGH A 1 IN 7

YEAR.

Pat: I THOUGHT THEY

WERE KNOCKING ON THE DOOR OF

A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP.

Lee: WE WON IT TWO

YEARS AGO, BUT THINGS ARE

KIND OF ROUGH THIS YEAR.

Terry: WE SHARE THE

LOVE, LEE.

Pat: THAT'S SWEET.

ALABAMA, I'LL TELL YOU,

THEY'VE GOT A COACH WHO

SCORED WELL IN THE PROS, AND

HE HAS BECOME THE DARLING.

OF COURSE, WES MYLES OF

L.S.U. HAS ASTONISHED THE

WORLD WITH WHAT HE HAS

DONE.

IF THEY BEAT ALABAMA --

Terry: I LOVE THE STORY

OF JEREMY PEOPLES.

WHAT A GOOD HEAD THAT GUY

HAS ON HIS SHOULDERS.

THAT'S AWESOME.

WE WISH BOTH SIDES THE BEST,

RIGHT?

Pat: OF COURSE WE DO.

WE'RE NOT TAKING ANY SIDES

IN THIS CONTEST.

THE BEST TEAM WILL

OBVIOUSLY -- NOT NECESSARILY

THE BEST TEAM WILL WIN --

YOU CAN'T SAY THAT.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: SOMEBODY WILL.

Pat: SOMEBODY IS GOING

TO WILL.

HOBBY LOBBY'S LAWSUIT TO

BLOCK THE CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE IN OBAMACARE WENT

BEFORE A FEDERAL JUDGE ON

THURSDAY.

ATTORNEYS FOR THE BUSINESS

SAY THE MANDATE VIOLATES THE

CHRISTIAN BELIEFS OF THE

COMPANY'S OWNERS BY FORCING

THEM TO COVER INSURANCE

COSTS FOR DRUGS THAT INDUCE

ABORTION.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

SAYS HOBBY LOBBY IS A

SECULAR EMPLOYER THAT DOES

NOT EXERCISE RELIGION.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

DELIVERING EMERGENCY FOOD

RATIONS TO VILLAGES IN THE

AFRICAN NATION OF NIGIR.

NOW ENTIRE COMMUNITIES ARE

WITHOUT ENOUGH FOOD TO GET

THEM TO THE NEXT HARVEST.

ONE MOTHER SAID, QUOTE, "IF

THE CROPS DON'T GROW, YOU

DON'T EAT.

IF YOU ARE HUNGRY, YOU

SUFFER.

THIS AID HAS BLESSED US

BECAUSE WE HAVE NEVER

RECEIVED THIS MUCH AS

ONCE."

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

WHAT "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

DOING BY GOING TO THEIR

WEBSITE AT OB.ORG.
