all due respect. there's a tradition to the christmas tree. it's there in context. so guys like you come in and the previous governors i am sure there are people in other places. we don't want the christmas tree tradition any more. that's what t's people off. you say you want people to be happy they are not happy. they want a christmas tree to be a christmas tree. there's no holiday tree. there's no tradition of holiday tree. >> did you have to go to public school and have to say the lord's prayer in public school? >> i did. get this. first we had to say the pledge of allegiance but all of us had to say the lord's prayer. but then the supreme court ruled that that should not be that all students non christians have to say a christian prayer. there was outrage just like there is now with the tree. now you look back on it and you say of course you can't ask non
christians to say a christian prayer if public school. these controversies you generate them here but they shouldn't be controversies. >> there are two different issues. >> no, not at all. >> a christmastime is a symbol. it's not a symbol of religion. >> you like to make a lot of controversy. >> you are the guy making the controversy. all i want to do is keep the traditions of christmas that make most americans happy. the polls show 90 percent of americans celebrate christmas and they want to call it the christmas tree. you are in the minority. you are imposing your will and you are making people unhappy in a season of joy. you are not doing the right thing, governor. >> there you go, bill. it is now 20 minutes after the hour. next on the rundown there's a health alert. glass was found in a cholesterol pill used by 4 million americans. we will tell you what you need to know. >> sick of the holiday headache?

>> good morning. welcome back to "fox & friends first". i am heather nauert. >> i am heather childers. it is half past the top of the hour. the top five stories making news for you at this hour. we begin with this. army private bradley manning speaking publicly for the first time since his arrest in 2010 for allegedly providing classified information for the web site wikileaks. he thought he was doomed to die that's a quote in custody. he pleaded guilty to 8 lesser charges in which he faces 16 years in prison. however manning has not pled
guilty to any of the major offenses. he is trying to get the judge to dismiss the charges against him because they argued the military treated him too harshly. >> the u.s. consulate in benghazi. the senate homeland security committee saying it does not have so-called man traps despite the recommendation from the state department's inspector generals three years ago. now man traps are special holding areas for visitors. that is something republican senator susan collins says might have slowed down the terror attack that left u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans dead back on september 11th. >> governor january brewer slapped with a lawsuit over immigration rights. for driver's licenses for young immigrants. those young people were given work permits and avoided
deportation under president obama's dream act. they claim not having a driver's license makes it difficult for them to go to school and work. they call brewer's move unconstitutional. >> cot sound of your baby crying actually be a sign of autism? there is new research that suggests pitch and the crying of babies as young as 6 months could determine their risk to develop autism. the higher more variable the pitch the grart the risk of a-- grart the risk of autism. they help the information can help identify children at risk for the disease much earlier in life. >> so sweet, though. >> talk about a very close encounter with a hump back whale. >> oh my god. that's -- >> the whale getting very close to a small canoe in australia as you heard it actually made the
little girl that was taping the whole thing that little squeak you heard made her nervous. she was in a boat when a giant whale swam up to them and under the canoe. luckily they were just fine. that's your 5@5:30. speaking of eaten up it was a power lunch yesterday at washington. president obama and mitt romney coming face to face for the first time since their last presidential debate. that meeting taking place at the white house. it appears that they talked about the country's leadership. they are still not making much progress in the fiscal cliff. >> doug is live from washington. >> either way they stave off the fiscal cliff. spending cuts at the end of the fiscal year. it has really shocked
republicans this year on capitol hill. they say it calls for, for one thing, $1.6 trillion in new tax hikes over a decade. it is also stimulus spending and the spending cuts. both sides are necessary to reduce the deficit. those the president would largely tackle later perhaps next year. >> first despite the claims that the president supports a balanced approach, the democrats have yet to get serious about real spending cuts. no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. listen, this is not a game. jobs are on the line. the american economy is on the line and this is a moment for adult leadership. >> perhaps most su prirprising the white house proposal to get
the president just about unlimited power to raise the nation's debt sealiceiling and w more and more money unless they reject. these will be tough negotiations ahead. we got a little sample of this yesterday from senate majority leader talking to john boehner. >> i don't understand his brain. you should ask him. >> not much time to get this done. the president meantime flies to pennsylvania for a campaign style rally to sell his plan. back to you guys. >> in certain states out west it is legal to smoke marijuana just to get high. does that mean you might not be able to get away with it without serious consequences. dan springer gets into the legal and professional leave.
>> they may be in for a rude awakening. they can smoke pot legally in their home but get fired for a drug test. it is still ill legal drug and businesses have a right to have a drug free workplace. business owners are worried because they feel it will be harder to hire workers and drive up legal bills when they fire employees. medical experts say the high lasts between 2 and 3 hours but the drug can still be detected in the system for up to a week. one of the gray areas is how long the person stays impaired. a doctor told me reaction times can be slowed for 24-hours. it could be a major liability for business owners. >> you put a small business owner right in the middle of a vice a government requires you to do this state law requires that, and you are stuck in the middle. >> then there's the issue of union workers playing by a whole different set of rules than any
one else. union lawyers say pot should be treated just like alcohol. if it is smoked in the home there will should be no punishment at all. because they use arbitration not a court system they don't have much success for those fired over marijuana. >> off duty conduct has no impact on the job. it would be the employer's burden. >> the real winners are the lawyers who get a lot more work. heather and heather back to you. dan springer reporting for us. thank you, dan. >> before you leave the house this morning let's get the first degree weather update with janice dean. >> much of the country remains quiet with exception to the west coast where we have a series of storm systems that will bring inches of rain, 20 inches of rain. flash flooding is possible for
