Conservative author and commentator Ann Coulter says that all Republicans who criticize members of their own party over the recent attempt to defund obamacare and that led to the sixteen day government shut down. Should become Democrats. Do you agree with an issue right if you disagree with some aspect of the Republican Party should you become a Democrat. Is it necessary to agree with everything your party does everything your party says if if you're a Democrat and in the south there are Democrats who. Are part very conservative in the same way that there are Republicans in the northeast and Massachusetts for example who are very liberal or moderate. If you're Democrat do you oppose gun control. If you're a Democrat do you oppose same sex marriage. If you're a Republican do you support some aspects of gun control. And if you're Republican arguing pro choice Republican. The you have to agree with everything your party stands for Stewart blog tonight -- title and Coulter is wrong all Republicans don't have to agree. Read that -- share with your politically minded friends it's on our website at WW dot com. A page under our opinions we're talking about that on the show tonight also a prominent doctors group says that condoms should be more available. For teenagers the group supports having condoms available in malls everywhere. Is it really that hard for teens to find condoms. Here's -- -- W a pretty -- opinion poll tonight is giving free condoms to teens. Encouraging them to have sex. Right now 59% say yes it's encouraging them to have sex. 41% saying no. You could have given me all the free condoms. They were available. And I still wouldn't tax. Because it was just not part of my lifestyle. And at that age and the other question is should parents be bold enough and courageous enough. To supply their teenagers with condoms. Their daughters. And their signs if they have reason to believe. They're teens are sexually active. Why would that be your responsibility I love what does somebody said earlier they said that if you teach your children to cross the street. It doesn't mean you wanted to play in the street. You're just trying to teach them across the street safely. Another good analogy about the availability of condoms encouraging sex was if fun if teens didn't have condoms they wouldn't have sex. That's like saying if teens. Did have toilet paper they would go to the bathroom. If you -- join us with your comets -- -- our numbers 260187. Toll free 8668890. Point seven -- number is 87870.

Indeed need to use we you know out condoms don't work maybe it's been Halloween and you know New Orleans have a lot of -- -- in the community. Maybe somebody who work who do at all. Two you know what I'm up emotions -- -- helped it prevent teenage pregnancy. Wouldn't want or -- -- love potion. I literally admirable white -- The better solution. Let me dictate -- -- but what we're talking about here is what is the problem of have a unwanted pregnancies to quickly and you know and Mary teenagers and and -- transmitted diseases and I think -- seriously that. The solution is good here. You know up insurance plans that pay for. Contraceptives. Or the morning after pill and yes even even. You know. Condoms a couple of -- the pebble a woman's struggle it now. And I you know. Treatment for its TDs. Posting things should be covered -- -- retail insurance policy. And everyone should be companies in the either on the exchanges or undercut our current insurance. It -- somebody wants to if somebody wants to be responsible. Oh with their sexuality. Is it really that difficult to get condoms. No it is not it's it's very easy victory every -- they have that -- And the issue is but -- -- people's attitudes even. Press some people won't upgrade and a six because India. And so people -- and it Welker and. Well that's in that I think that's almost in a different topic they're -- some people who yes who who wanna have kids for psychological reasons I've played they wanna feel wanted to date they went out there they feel like to get attention they have a baby and and get help from the -- -- -- are those people. But then there are those. Teenagers. That are just simply not responsible. When it comes to -- their sexuality. Is it too much to ask teenagers to be responsible -- -- even understanding that hormones raged through our bodies and can cause us to think about things. Is it really. Is it really out of the question as teens to be responsible. -- you not being -- people are responsible. I don't think it's your responsibility. -- of the public and taxpayers. To pick up the slack. You know their families can take care of you know out of wedlock bird it's. Well people you know they can pay for extra children out of wedlock if somebody on the -- their. I think you can cut out a lot but public funding that that. And supportive -- you know pregnant bureau's Houston had to go home. When they got pregnant -- now they have programs. To accommodate them at. I remember I remember how rare it wise for and one of the high school girls. To get pregnant today it's not as uncommon as it once once. And I think my problem with talking about the availability of condoms in balls and everywhere and got to make sure that they have condoms. To me that disguises the real problem which is personal responsibility and if somebody's not gonna be responsible they can have a condom. And think of a thousand reasons not to use it at that moment. We you know I think though it in the morning and after vehicles were were more readily available as well as cut other contraceptives you know like. But it'll. And treatment for sexually transmitted diseases if that was more available to -- people spiritually. I think we would have less of a problem maybe not a total in the but it don't you think it would. Well it might help those who are predispose to wanna have a baby for the wrong reasons. Illinois College -- like sourcing in Tuscaloosa.

On American pie type movie Europe -- some movie that deals with with sexuality if they were condoms somehow in this scene. Obviously you're not gonna show some body getting ready to actually use one bit if condoms were present there. Well. And yes proposal wouldn't be enough. It still doesn't now -- Philippines the question. Children keep their coverage starting at 65 the U and.

Tech's number 678 -- I hear is attacks that reads the Democrats have Michael Moore and we have Ann Coulter at least our village idiot is better looking. I'm I'm really enlightened that that so many people understand what have. What do bogus. Commentator. Ann Coulter is and we're talking about this because Ann Coulter has said that. Any Republicans. Even Marco Rubio John McCain senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina Mike Huckabee any Republicans who disagreed with. Be -- Republican Party strategy are part of the Republican strategy. To defund obamacare that led to the sixteen day government shut down should become Democrats. But now she's promoting her book. And I guess. When your Ann Coulter or somebody like that. There is. There is a reward in saying things that are extreme. Even if they're stupid. The very idea that everybody within the party whether Republican or Democrat must agree with every aspect of the party. Is nonsensical. But Ann Coulter is hard core right wing. And yet. Extremist voices like in -- voice. Get attention. And they sell books. Which is just another reminder that. Those of us who were part of the silent majority need to become vocal. So we do a better job of denouncing the extremist voices on the right and the left. They seem to get most of the attention. -- like tonight is very honest about it it's titled Ann Coulter is wrong all Republicans don't have to agree. Read it share it it's on our website at WWL dot com from New Orleans George welcome to description or night. -- I think you nailed it earlier. I think the -- the another Republican party's conservative ideal general currently using a lot of people it is -- -- like or four years old and I would consider myself very fiscally conservative but -- -- and on social issues specifically gay marriage just a proper. Certainly consider myself a Republican. And we have these. Saw part one Republican in the extreme that betray well all part of why. And every single aspect I think you lose a lot of people my age naturally share. Well George you're actually right about that and it's interesting that the Republican Party reassessed themselves after that the loss last November in the presidential election they realize that they had lost young voters. They had lost women voters they had lost on Hispanic voters -- lost at some minority voters that they had had had. And it was because the Republican Party collectively didn't do a good enough job denouncing the idiotic voices like data senatorial candidate Todd Aiken from Missouri. Who said that. I you don't have to worry about abortion. When it comes to rape. Because a woman's body shuts down and she won't get pregnant during rape which is biologically bogus. And did the voices were not loud enough to denounce them the right. That the far right and that's why I found it interesting that. Ted Cruz and do the Tea Party got so much attention because it has led to. On tremendous image damage with the Republican Party and as long -- mean that tea parties the best thing that has ever happened to Obama and the Democrats. I agree I think that if there had been such a far right around. -- just a lot of issues that you party has brought up other people might start to see that. On his on the administration's own merit there's a lot -- -- Doggie. Just a whole lot of issues and -- -- had a little -- and CA. And right now Obama care in the beginning has been a disaster we don't exactly know if it's gonna work but there were a lot of things they were told to us is the American people that aren't true. People are losing. There their health insurance. Is how was all this gonna play that we don't know. But right now this is starting to catch up with the administration and it. Right now it doesn't look good but if the Republicans have not launch that strategy to defund obamacare which led to the shut down. Then all of this would have been the focal point of the media as opposed to that now it's coming out but not until after the damage was done to the image of the Republican Party. I agree 100%. And that real quick call jumpers here people -- -- condoms cause kids. Or people think they can't complete. It desire abstract such kid great kid want perhaps that genetic or order cute one it's.

In New York the NFL wanted a better understanding of how the Redskins plan to handle the controversy with the team's name. And insider said today at that meeting in New York. That he will not change the name of the team however he's willing to listen to those who are critical of the name those who are. Offended by the name and you know this can only go so far that their cannot be a law. That's. Bans the name the Redskins. Are our society doesn't work that way. You can disapprove of something you can not like it you can show your disapproval but you can't. He can't legislate. And a name change that would defy the constitution that would never be upheld by the US Supreme Court. Aside and and how would there be a protest of of the Redskins. If if enough Americans. Felt as if the Redskins. Was a derogatory term at right now most Americans don't seem to think it is derogatory or -- offensive. They don't perceive it that way that doesn't mean that some they'll perceive it that way but it's not. Accepted by enough Americans for it to be perceived as. Something that is so significant that there's no way they can go on without changing the name. And I wondered if maybe if we get to the point of -- -- the stands. But Dan Snyder has told the season ticket holders and he told Roger Goodell today that he has no plans to change the name. -- the NFL wanted to get a better idea of how they were gonna handle this or or approach this criticism. I'm controversy because tomorrow they meet with. The native American group that is mostly behind the criticism of of the name no word on whether or not but Kostis is going to be here we don't know how he feels about it. But really the -- can't. You can't you could ask for -- you can say is inappropriate but it. We can't do anything legally to change the name and and and what would be the repercussions. How would there be some kind of an economic protest at the Washington Redskins if they didn't change their name that we somehow. Lead to changing the name I can't I can't imagine a scenario I mentioned earlier that. If if if it came up and and whose disable it won't but you know we've. Thought that things would never happen and they ended up happening in become controversies. What if there was criticism of the name the -- And it would not come from the food and nation it would come from saints and it might come from an -- What what does that got to the point where. There was -- Demand to change the name because the name was offensive because it related to catholicism. And another Christian religious as well. Saints fans. Would just blow it off -- that well you know. We don't care. Sorry but we don't care and they would still go to the games I just don't think anything that would change.

But he came with numerous talks about morality and personal responsibility disease education and talks about. The responsibility in creating a child. So. If it was the condoms. For the talks all I don't know if it was the condoms or the talks the personal responsibility preventing pregnancies. And disease that I'd like to think that it was probably combination of both and here's an update on our WWL pretty general opinion poll tonight. Is giving free condoms to teens encouraging. Teens to have sex. 61%. Say yes it is. 39% say no. So just making condoms available. Is making teens say encouraging -- hasn't really. I think about it. What do condom. Have. Encourage you to have sex. Or if you were gonna have sex should you be encouraged to use a condom. I think I just I can't imagine that somebody gets a condom. And it's like. Oh my god OK now I can have sex I was gonna have sex but now an account to have six -- -- -- thanks for the condom. -- -- -- Talking about availability of condoms. It's totally distracts from the bigger conversation of teaching personal responsibility.
