Bob Mitchell in for Scoot - Do you still make New Year's resolutions? Have you ever kept any?
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. The girls were flying on a pass from a United Airlines employee and the dress code for “pass travelers” is stricter than other passengers. Do you consider leggings inappropriate?
Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.
President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their "Obamacare" repeal bill off the House floor Friday after it became clear the measure would fail badly. Does this reflect badly on the Republicans?

And brawl almost a half the people all over the world it's a time when they look back and try to evaluate what they've done. And if you look back and say I didn't do very good to losing weight. It's kind of hard you know after that after you at Christmas parties and New Year's parties to even think about losing weight and applies. So money people to to not keep this New Year's resolution. Another one that the people make and have a hard time keeping the exercise. And often worked it out as involved in the weight loss but. There are people don't actually need to lose weight but just need some physical exercise to get in shape the outcome.

Nazi UWK org you'll impart better year next year than. All right Joseph I appreciate you toning and so emotional to get back to some of these text messages are remembered since this Friday. And a school a lot of talk about anything that we talked about during the weeks ago. Feel raid to depict any of the subject if you. Need a refresher on who we talked about one of the things we talked about was this new Missouri law that starts January the urged. Where. If you or kid and you get into a fight or you get caught bullying then they can actually charge through with a felony. Which on some of these cases. You can go to jail for up to four years. So just look we need to help things be a little more actually put our schools we talked about that. When he talked about where you forced to hog or commercial world of when you were growing up and here's a text message on that one. This is Justin commenting on forcing kids to hog relatives my mother had an ongoing believed that we had to love art thousands and be one happy family. I told her life doesn't work that way. Between you in the all of 21000. I only liked one of them and as far as doing them extremists the streamers things with the fireworks. Blow up mailboxes with fireworks. Yeah iPod I did I did a little of that here's one as for as a New Year's resolution or Donald Trump. Donald Trump's New Year's resolution should be keep doing what you're doing show him. Want. Sure I'm working does. Show them what you do will work I think that's what the text messages trying to say now let's get back to the list of things that people draw. But just. Don't succeed. New Year's resolution get a new job. If you ask your friends of there happy with the job there will most likely tell you not really its range but the more jobs positions there are the harder it is deploying people. Who really enjoy their jobs the majority of people do not like what they do. Here's another one New Year's resolution a lot of people make this one here and on a debt. Paying off debt as a popular New Year's resolution but as many difficult. Vote and have that many have typical well. That many of difficulty accomplishing. My New Year's resolution is to pre read things a little bit more. Keeping this resolution often requires a major reduction of people's comfort and conventional battle which is something many people don't want to give up. Like going out to eat dinner. Collected in nice big they finish them. From the hard to get out of debt if you are always eating out. A save money. Improving finances is on almost like the same thing as as getting out of debt. If you save money. An opponent to your bills then you can get all of that. And here's one that a lot of people play here in New Orleans of very very difficult to do this eat healthy. Sometimes as those connected with weight loss resolution healthier eating is another praise worthy vol we often make. Keeping it to be particularly typical because many people have absolutely wrong. And unsuitable diet and eating habits. Another one get organize. Time management. And better organization is another important thing that many people was to improve and the New Year's league great way to say I'm going to give more organized. Man. Usually this. And goes through May be 34 months and that's when people go back to all of their old. 26 year old 187 you can text me at age 7870. Let's take on just like GI NG.

All right Jeanne G I've I think that's mighty dangerous and I hope any kids listening today it will not even think about doing that. All right we have some phone lines open a dual tell us things that you use to do with fireworks as a kid that. Or probably you would not want kids to do that today. About your New Year's resolution anything we talked about this past week you can talk about this afternoon to secure a 170 touch via its 7870. It's a little after 13 is news time on WWL. They're welcome back the show. Bobbitt who fill in for food in the afternoon of course this is the New Year's Eve weekend coming up New Year's Day. Fireworks all night nasty here's the people in in my neighborhood. Right now do not shoot a whole bunch. Growing up as a kid in my neighborhood the next morning and it looked like a war zone and I did one a mention this though apart from the traditional bar works. And the a and the big ball they're gonna have been times where if you look to the sky you can see a blazing comet that. NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory says that it may be visible to people as you bring in police seventeen on Saturday issue. Syria farewell to police sixteen. And at what they are described as a possibly style by looking up to flee the New Year's Eve. Comment. Comet on December the 31 puts it back tar balls go to jail after it was legal chip first of all do you make a new you resolution. Our deep yet occasionally like once a year. At what would troubles. Have you made that you've been able to keep. And which ones have you not been able to keep. Tacky mall like because I don't expect much. Give me an example of one that you've made and you've been able keep. Exercise. Regularly or semi regularly rather than not at all the exercises but it would. And do you accomplish it. Yeah job you know born and raised in New Orleans been bit fat. And then slim and now are quite healthy weight so I would say have been successful. Europe can doubt brought up as a kid did you do any things with fireworks that you should not have done and we wanna make sure that there any young people listening. We do not suggest that you take any of these ideas like. Here's a partners said that they would open up ball black cats. I'm not about was a pack of I think what really powerful while park rockets yeah. And they would owe them open them up and put them in the hand. And blow the Kansas City Hall by the hand would go opened the year so you should you should really should experiment with fireworks. I did ads that hit a lot of people. That's actually where I call because it I had a friend that a lot of beautiful animal. On new duties shooting fireworks will remind folks out there that dogs I don't know aboard that. Are important. They creek they get so. Confused. And start running. But my dog celibate and shakes and I can't go anywhere he received a because. EU you can't you can't protect them from the noise. So importantly if you turn the radio in there in an insulated world or something like that bush. Fireworks really really do you really do. They are they. I have I have two dogs one goals and be back closet and just. But laurels and through the close on the 401. Moments of in the on the content sleep and could careless about it. Well there and then there you go like I didn't even know just assume from my personal experience. But it was loud colored friend of mine that. Starting Q and fireworks on the beach. And his dog was tethered only. Started running and had got hit by a car so. It it's food for thought. In general Jeff you are right most parents do not like fireworks hello. You'll definitely panic they they don't know they can't understand what the budget and celebration program that's for sure. I Jeff thank you so much okay. All right now if if you have pets and your parents are like Jeffs and they panic with the fireworks what do you do to us help you pretzel do you. You put him in an area where where it stays all quiet. 2601870. Touched me and 87870. How many of you make New Year's resolutions and actually are able to keep them.

A couple of more new years resolutions that the people late. And have a very very hard time keeping. One is travel how many times visa you know. This year under the troubled I'm gonna do dollar house I'm gonna see this country. Well some of the first things we tend to think governor a new year or the exotic destinations in portico which we would love to see. Unfortunately it usually happens. We need money. For that weight. Well money is not gonna have excellent piece and romantic things. And a lot of people start upgrade on that but not quite make it now I do have a a text votes which were they have a great idea. This person texted me no resolutions. Only challenges this year twenty dollars every Friday in the shoe box for my own Christmas bonus importing seventy. That's a good idea that here's one that I'm I'm I'm surprised. That some money people make it and actually keep it. Learning a new language. Learning a new language of a good idea and this resolution ranks among those that. Quite a high percentage of people actually keep especially if they choose a language. That is not to put called them for them to learn now we also ought to be on the show afternoon I'm gonna probably keep this going all afternoon to want to think about it. And that give me a call or send me a text message. In all a lot of talk about Donald Trump may need. Absolutely. Shoots from the hip and a lot of controversy about him sending out tweets and whenever he thinks about something. A lot of people including the which they would think a little bit before you sons of the message I hope. As president of the United States he continues to do that I think that's cool being able to. Communicate directly with the people. I just hope he thinks before he does things. Before he gets us in the trouble well I'll picky but if you couldn't make a New Year's resolution for Donald Trump. What of that New Year's resolution that something that you think that Donald Trump should make. Not something that he will lend somebody that you think he should make you can call me at 260187. You could touch me. And hate somebody it's up to. Here's one that probably is only come up and and in the last few years. Spend less time on FaceBook. I don't spend a lot of time on FaceBook. But I have family members of spend probably hours a day. And a lot of people even if they admit that they have this is an issue. It can be very difficult for them to reduce the time spent on the site familial and logging in a chicken different activities. Is one of the first things they do every morning and again up. You know it used to be you would open the morning newspaper now people grab a couple of cooperate go to the computer and check in on plays but now I go to my computer. But normally would do in the morning in a double double check my email. And then will actually what is going all on going on in the world and all ultra light CBS news NBC news. Of Fox News of the Drudge Report and those little things like check every morning I'd never read the newspaper anymore. I'm local angle dot com and on WW all of course dot com and that that's where like I get my news from a lot of people. They spoke to as part of their life to it is then hours or FaceBook everyday. Here's another one that it's hard to do spend less time watching TV. What happens as you get quote. On some of these programs and it and it's hard. To give up you know. That there are couple shows ago I'm apple we hope all that some things will now a National Geographic channel of the love got to watch. Some TV programs like scandal. I have to watch it. It's it's an addiction you know. I going to withdrawals. But can't watch musk and on having a hard time until it comes back I think in January if it comes by actual like I can't wait until then here's a good one. Lot of people make notes get rid of old polls. I've made that over and over again in the main problem here. Is that you find yourself emotionally attached to close. You know especially you know like old shirts and things I'd do them all the time in my life is clean your closet well all right the Lima New Year's resolution start going through it. They're sure to shove I haven't worn in five years. But I remember all wore a did this 10 well worn that short and a putt I just don't want to a pro life. OK New Year's resolution for Donald Trump. Donald Trump's New Year's resolution should be to get rid. To get a new rug. For his head I don't know of if if that is unfortunately I think that might be his Israel there. As far as fireworks in the sixties and seventies that kids would have fun of fallen in school by blowing up toilets in the bathroom usually cherry bombs. I remember that I don't know if it was fun because if you went to that school where. Some of these idiots dropped cherry bomb in the parlor and you had no place to go the rest of the day that was not a lot of fun. New Year's resolution read the Bible in one year very doable that sounds like a great New Year's resolution on a might join you about what. All right we'll take a break and come right back to you after the after the top the hour news on WW.
