Should all Republicans and all Democrats just agree with every member of their party…and everything their party says? Do you always agree with everything said by your political party members?
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.

Its surprise that suddenly I mean this has been a controversy on and off for many many years and now it's. Once again a controversy. The the problem is Paul is that there are groups. That gain power through victimization they get attention by by claiming to be victims. And that's what I think is happening here and we we we can all be offended by something and whether you're native American. White black Hispanic Asian male female a Christian Jew. Muslim. A Republican Democrat there is no guarantee you're gonna go through life and not be offended by something. Right. And an. -- -- but -- post once you know and being.

Bookmarks on an almost firms cannot pull them all. But that is no excuse it's. You know. I mean there's nobody that and that's. And and you did the right thing and that's the conversation that parents need to have their kids they shouldn't pressure decades ago -- be sexually active they should discourage it. They should do while they -- two. To teach them personal responsibility and the fact that they don't have to have sex. In our peer pressure but if they're going to this is the way it should be done. Correct and there are Obama prepared Balkan problems scoop there got ten different ways from Sunday. And my mom gave me that book. So that will -- to be 24 though board probably shouldn't be your goal of sexually transmitted disease. Has not been you know. -- -- You know when when when I was young I didn't wanna catch something you can get rid of and now this or you can catch that you can't get rid and that's another reason -- used on -- -- where I'm glad to -- -- -- -- -- listening to WWL ignites and we're coming right back with more of your comments on WWL there is a guy named. In the French Quarter. Who every weekend and paints himself gold. And he sits on like a trash can one of the board of it at the trash cans on on Bourbon Street. -- -- and he is just standing there. As a statue was a gold statue. Shooting. The bird. -- has a sign something like. Go to hell Roger Goodell or something like that. And I can't believe this guy is still getting people to put money in his in his box that means that the argument with Roger Goodell is so over here. Where we're so done with that and then there's another guy who stands up on on a large paint canned. And he's in silver. And he's standing there is a statue. Flipping off the crowd and people are taking pictures of him. What is that what is the big deal with that. Or are people so angry that that's like I know this is all big and this is so cool man this guy shoot department gonna get a pitcher this. It look there are a lot of fun character suburban street those guys. I I don't get. -- Roger Goodell met with the Washington Redskins owner Dan Schneider today in New York today before the NFL is gonna meet with the Unita. On Indian tribe native American tribe that is upset with the name the Redskins it'll be interesting to see if any news comes out of that meeting tomorrow and if there it is is any news will talk about its. On the show tomorrow night. A 26 year old woman in Claussen Michigan. Dressed up as an abusive wife for Halloween pub crawl over the weekend where you go from one point to another. Her toward a five year old boyfriend dressed up as an abused husband. The woman was arrested for getting drunk beating and actually abusing her boyfriend. I guess sometimes Halloween. Imitates life. I tomorrow night on the show since it's going to be the day before Halloween reduced Thursday. We'll talk about Halloween myths and superstitions. And where are all the warnings now. Halloween is a holiday for worshipping Satan. What happened all the talk about Halloween. Introducing young people to the cult. Have we finally gotten past that belief. Or do you still believe that Halloween. Is it -- people. We'll talk about them the show tomorrow night and we'll set the record straight on miss like. You better check your kids candy you're better -- -- your kids candy because there might be stuffy and it. Did people really use candy to poison children at Halloween time. We'll talk about that -- and other myths and superstitions on the show tomorrow night. They hates that he so president in political battles between the right in the left in Washington DC on talk radio and in daily conversation -- -- across this country. Is rooted in the current divisiveness. Of partisanship. Bipartisanship. Has become a lost political art. And instead of recognizing it as the missing link in the evolution. Process of of politics. It's celebrated as a team sport. Partisanship is like this team sport. There is such a wide spectrum of beliefs and opinions among both Democrats and Republicans that it's it's unrealistic to expect. That all of those who align themselves with one party would agree with everything that party professes. And those who claim to agree with everything are easily exposed as political hypocrites. Conservative author and political commentator. And culture. Condemn those Republicans who were critical of members of their own party over the recent attempt to defund obamacare. It led the sixty day government shutdown. Coulter is promoting her new book never trust a liberal over three especially Republican. And she talked to -- Huff post she said look if you're a liberal if your brain is wired that way you know fine. But in the case of people like rubio McCain Lindsey Graham. And Huckabee. I think an awful lot. Of it is so they can get favorable press in the media. She went on to say that Republicans who attacked members of the Republican Party should just become Democrat. -- quote just become a Democrat. Do you agree with her. I think in -- wrong. The individuals of both parties really should be encouraged to speak out against members of their own party if they have honest disagreements. It's the blind loyalty. To a party. That gives the impression that both parties are more interested in advancing their own agenda and ideology. Rather than doing what's in the best interest of the American people. I mean it would be nice if we period. Could all trust what people say and that they honestly believe what they say but what it comes to any scrutiny of the extreme voices like Ann Coulter. Glenn Beck. Rush Limbaugh Rachel madcow Al Sharpton Ed Schultz. Anybody on the far right or far left the pundits -- politicians. If you really look at what they're saying. You can find an opportunistic motive behind their extremism. All of people I just mentioned benefit financially from extreme. Party line positions. Now having said that in fairness there have been a few locations even recently. When Rush Limbaugh disagree with some of the extremists in the Republican Party. And recently said that the government shut down was the biggest political disaster he's ever witnessed so according to Ann Coulter Rush Limbaugh should become a Democrat. Really. Extremists have been rewarded by audiences. That rally around the leaders of their flock. And I think it's fair to question whether Ann Coulter is more interested in selling her new book that she is in speaking rationally. And intelligently about politics. This idea that any Republican who disagrees with the most extreme factions in the Republican Party should switch parties and become a Democrat. Is very similar to the mentality that led to the Republican party's failure. In last year's presidential election. It's -- the reluctance of the party to show solidarity. In denouncing the extreme and absurd views when it comes to issues like. Rape and abortion and birth control from ultra far rightwing conservatives like senatorial candidate tonic it. And presidential candidate Rick Santorum when they they they talked about abortion and rape in birth control this tainted the image of Mitt Romney last year at this time. And that was partly what led to the reelection of Obama. Obama benefited from right wing extremists and Obama and the Democrats right now are benefiting. From the Tea Party. And Coulter would disagree. The image of the Republican Party has been tarnished recently. This is not my opinion this is an absolute. Political fact based on all of the polls. And even the Republican Party is recognizing this. Hillary Clinton has suddenly seized this moment to become visual and vocal. As she apparently is positioning herself to be the candidate to beat in 2016. I don't think the fact that we're suddenly seeing Hillary Clinton. I don't think this was planned in advance I think we're seeing Hillary Clinton on the political scene right now. Because it's an immediate reaction to the public to view of the Republican Party. Following the government shut down they're taking advantage of this moment. It's obvious. That America is not dominated by the extreme right or the extreme left. But think about the attention the extreme voices seem to get and the extreme voices continued to proclaim that they speak for America. -- cruise doesn't speak for America. And Coulter doesn't speak for America. And and those on the far left don't speak for America. You know disagreement. Within the Republican Party or the Democrat party. Might be the only evidence that everyone in this country is not a blind follower of their party and and nobody should be. It's nice to know with some people are still courageous enough to express honesty. You if you if you subscribe to this strict party ideology your party. That make you more of a cult follower. -- an independent thinker. And what's in America built in doesn't America thrive and independent thinkers. I mean ask yourself or you political cult member. Or do you have the courage to disagree. With your own party. And the extreme voices may get attention. And I think it's unfortunate that the extremists. Who say things just to get your attention just to rile you up. They're the ones who have benefited from a society. That seems to be so enamored. With hate. And yet. The majority of this country. Is in far right or far left. -- -- If you wanna join us with a comet tonight on numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. At 78. And anti semitism itself.

Do him ugly physical showing net thanks listing here is attacks the Republican Party needs a condom to protect it from. Itself. Here's a text what do you think presidents Washington and Jefferson would think of today's government. They also had to deal. With things. -- Steven and Arco. I've I've quite often thought about that as as we all have what went our founding fathers think of the country today. What would they think of Washington today. There's there's so much talk today about. The the partisanship and they hate. The lack of compromise between the two parties. And there's a lot of talk today about how. Reagan and I Tip O'Neill who has sued Democrat. Speaker of the house when Reagan was president. They -- political enemies. But they ultimately sent down and work things out. For the benefit of the American people. Bill Clinton Newt Gingrich they work things out there were times when they had to. Compromise. Shouldn't be a bad word we should refer to compromise as the seaboard. It's part of human relations. It's part of the human existence. You compromise. Every day in your life. You compromise when you're driving. You compromise. In a marriage. If you have a boyfriend girlfriend you compromise. You compromise. With your kids now there are some things that you can't compromise but there needs to be some compromise. If there wasn't some compromise in life. Nothing would ever. Get done. Also tonight we're talking about this says this group of doctors very prestigious group of pediatricians. -- says that we need to make condoms more available for teams. Here's an update on our WW a pretty general opinion poll tonight is giving free condoms to teens encouraging them to have sex. So we're saying is it if you give teens contents. And think about when you were a team because I. You know it's not like I'm speaking from a lack of experience because I was actually eighteen at one point. I went through those years and I experienced the same things most teens experience as did you. So we have knowledge. Of being teenagers. -- the availability of condoms. Have encourage you to be sexually active. It would have made me sexually active. I can't speak for anybody else but it's hard for me to believe that this item. It's accessible TU. Would make you sexually active when there's so much else that goes along with becoming sexually active not the least of which is a willing partner. Is the opportunity. That time the placed the person. Now if somebody is going to be sexually active. Certainly they should use condoms. And many parents live in denial to go like you know I don't know if they think about it being sexually active. But if you even have any reason to believe your kid is sexually active. Daughter or son. Shouldn't you as a parent. Talked to them about condoms. Not only to prevent pregnancy. But to prevent sexually transmitted diseases. So here's -- W -- -- a pretty -- opinion poll tonight is giving free condoms to teens encouraging them to have sex. 52% say yes. And 48% say no. Very close ball tonight give us your opinion by going to our web site WWL dot com. And discuss blog tonight which is turning on our web site to a front page under our opinions.
