Scoot talks about: Miley Cyrus; is her new concert too sexy? Mardi Gras; are you going to abide by the new street rules?
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?

-- It's the first weekend -- full nonstop Mardi -- operating and they were parades tonight -- took a look at out of the other side of our building near downtown. And I conceded his bumper to bumper on magazine trying to head toward uptown and head toward the interstates and and the West Bank so you just be patient I'll be at a great time at the parade. And it's that time of year win. It's crowded. Right this is Friday -- it's the beginning of the week and and on every show every Friday we. Always played a -- at least one time because this is what you've been working for. You be working for the weekend -- reach over. And crank it out. -- here's what we're talking about tonight the the new rules have gone into effect for Mardi Gras. Did did everybody follow the rules did you did you see any any problem tonight's I hope everybody was was following the rules but if you wanna talk about something that somebody did it. Really wasn't wasn't congruent with the new rules that are in effect you can call our show. I hope everybody behaves you know there's always going to be renegade teenagers and there obnoxious and did it's a shame that they have such a lack of respect for for other people that. You know I hear cursing and -- language and I know that some of this is part of being a teenager but. Even teenagers should be respectful family situations. And -- -- operates no matter where they are. You really are are partly family situation and so you know wait until -- along with your friends to let the following which fly -- there's there's there's nothing. There's nothing wrong with being as respectful of of other people a Ted Nugent has apologized we talked about this on the show last night to dutrow said. Among other things that President Obama was. A sub human Mungro. And and while many -- agree with that. He was on the campaign trail for great addict who's running for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in Texas. It's officially on the campaign trail. He's saying really ugly hateful derogatory things but the president. There's a way to criticize the president without getting ugly but yet Ted Nugent is reflective of how. Hateful. A political debate is today. A -- digits as he apologizes for using that term. And he said I will try to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I am learning from in the world politics. -- has apologized Ford and it's exactly what we talked about last night that it was inappropriate criticized the president for his policies criticized president because. You you don't you don't agree with him that's that's fine but does it have to get down to sub human Mungro. And and think about this yourself. Think about the times that you defended did George W. Bush when people were criticizing him you like George W. Bush show. You were very offended by. A derogatory comments about bush and believe me there were man this is not the first president who is received derogatory comments. So there's nothing wrong with trying to be a little more civil and cerebral with our political debate. Also tonight we've really talked about this this former US lieutenant general. Jerry Boykin. He was a speaking to the conservative group a family research council. And he said that he has this vision of the second coming of Christ. And Christ. Is packing an a and he goes back to revelation nineteen and said that the sword. From there. Today would be the ER fifty sorry if if Christ comes back as a warrior carrying a sword this sword today. Would be. And they are fifteen. And I do understand it is I think it is very logical. To. Updates. The image of Jesus into the world that we live in today for example you know Jesus Houston parables and he used contemporary things at the time to convey his messages. Who's to say they'd be Jesus wouldn't if he were here today fitness word did the beginning of of Jesus. Who's to say that he wouldn't be using contemporary type of music to. Spread his gospel also -- we've talked about a controversy with Miley Cyrus is concerts -- -- -- have come criticized Miley Cyrus saying that her concerts are too sexy. The errors just too much about sexual innuendo stuff on state -- simulates sex with a man wearing a Bill Clinton mask. She groups the backside of dancer moves provocatively in skimpy outfits on stage one of the outfits is a leotard with the design of a marijuana leaf. And or souvenirs that include forty dollar. Gold embellished rolling papers for pot smokers sold that the Miley Cyrus concert but she's 21. She is for as far as I know. Elevated getting -- smokes pot TV she's not doing anything illegal. And what she does on stages. Well I guess it's okay for 21 year old to act that way if that's what she wants him if if if parents are upset with this. They shouldn't dose of -- demand that the concerts. Some parents are calling for the Miley Cyrus concerts to be canceled the future concert to be canceled. And maybe it's a case of parents taking -- their kids to the concert. And being embarrassed by what they saw. And then turning around and blaming it on Miley Cyrus and the promoters and the producers of the concert. And there have even been some rumors that the that did this venues it in in upcoming cities are. Are threatening to bow out threatening to cancel the concerts. Because there's so they're so racy however the producers and the promoters of the concert life nation. Issued this statement saying. There is no truth whatsoever to any stories or rumors of venues pulling out of the bankers tour it's -- with it as easy and not a nest so this could also be something that worries. And created by that the management and Miley Cyrus to try to increase. The ticket sales because fortune magazine reports that. The frenzy with Miley Cyrus really peaked the week of August 25. When she was following the MTV video music awards appearance where she got so much attention for her behavior on stage. And so the demand for tickets have leveled off. What a great way you do inspire more ticket sales but create a controversy that it's it's so sexual. That there are parents who -- calling for the tour to be canceled. Well it's not going to be canceled and if you don't think you cage should see that. Then don't take him and as we know quite often a parents feel helpless like oh what am I gonna do my kids were missing Miley Cyrus well you know you don't have to take him. If you don't want to and for those who were so freaked out over Miley Cyrus let's remember there was Madonna and we survived her.

From the FaceBook page conversation but you can join in that conversation. And also are there. Are there any rules that you saw broken but it we were were people nice -- -- -- it was civic was it a good crowd out beat the weather was grade. I came to the station right before the -- I live on the other side of the the the parade downtown -- -- wanted to get here before the parade started site and can cross the line minority be here. So like I did go to any parades tonight. I'd probably take it a few in tomorrow. But yeah it was everybody behaving with everything -- If you gonna join us tonight are numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. It's happening -- number is 87870. Here's a -- that reads no parking on both sides of saint Charles is simply stupid. The north. Or the non -- side is already three lanes one for parking and two for travel prime example of government over reaching. What are they moving a double wide trailer. Anywhere they bring in the space shuttle through here and honor her at trailer. I don't know if I understand exactly why they they have to do that. But I've you know I'm not -- a city planner and I don't understand all the intricacies of what it needs to be done I do like some of the new rules about. No privates. Portable toilets on the neutral ground or anywhere people wanna put him. I liked the idea of -- the latter's and to all of this stuff that people bring must be at least six feet back from the curb. I like latter's not being chain together and really just out of out of common respect. Put the -- back a little bit too because if you're up in the very front and and this is just an indication of how selfish. That people can be I've got the latter I'm -- to the front. Well nobody can get authority. So put the letter back -- it really -- should be back. And you know keep the kids out of the street. Because CF. If there's a tragedy and and somebody unfortunately gets hit by a floater its role and unfortunately sometimes that does happen. It's not like the parade is veering off into the crowd. The crowd is venturing out into the streets. And I realize it's -- draw but this is a great time to. 22 just. Teach your kids they don't get out in the street and and it again. Their only beats. Their only. Trinkets it's not like it's stuff that's relieved that valuable report delight I know it's it's fun to catch the stuff. But it's not worth taking a chance on something bad happening also there are so many people especially for -- and in pockets. They like to they like to stake out their territory. And I believe some people do this way in advance like maybe the day before. Maybe even earlier than that but but people will vote will rope off an area where they'll put a TARP down. Welcome bark things off with chairs or cones or whatever they can't claiming that this is their property. Well that is now illegal. I don't know what the fine is for that but that is now illegal. I wonder though if the police are actually gonna take time to. Give citations to those people. Because if people don't fear punishment. Then they're gonna continue to do whatever it is that they're doing and they're not gonna worry about following the rules and you know while I think all these rules are are part most of these rules or are good rules. I wonder how how much the police are going to be paying attention to that when you think that there's so many other things that are even more important. For police to pay attention to. During a parade you know -- I want to look for. A possible violence I want to look for. What they perceive to be. The development of a bad situation. Not worrying about how far back latter years although I like the rule. I just don't want the police to focus too much on that. If you wanna join us tonight are numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890.

Overwhelming the brits ended the brits have a lot of competitors in the curling competition men and women. But that Canada beat the brits ninety 289 to three yen Namibia -- 93 was a victory. I. At the ice cube. In Sochi Russia. And Canada beat Sweden for the women's title. On Thursday. I don't know what it is about curling I don't understand all of it I don't understand the intricacies of it. I enjoy watching it. And this week when I got no appeared midnight and I've gone home and and watch the Olympics and and I I enjoy the Olympics -- I enjoyed today whenever did it it comes up summer or winter. But I actually there's something about curling that I find so relaxing. It just seems so calm. And so relaxing and just slide that rock down the ice and then they start only vigorous sweeping and everything. I don't understand all of it but I find it I find it rather relaxing a lot of people find it very boring factor crushing -- has sent. As a comment or FaceBook page a blog about how of the Olympics are boring and what needs to be done to make it a little more exciting. I can understand doing some things to make it more exciting for example. If you don't have a -- in India by Athlon they have guns. Well maybe the crawler guys could have guns to. Or maybe make it you know it that the cross country the cross country skiing can be competitive. Kinda boring at times maybe if they had guns and if somebody gets ahead of the good shoot somebody. -- I don't know maybe that would make it'll divorcee anyway to check that out. With the Kristian garic comets on that. But -- website WW dot com. To western states. With some of the nation's lowest smoking rates are considering cracking down even more by racing the age of buying cigarettes. 221. Utah and Colorado. Have lawmakers in both states. That voted in favor of proposals yesterday. To treat tobacco like alcohol. And taken away from eighteen to twenty girls. -- well you know people younger than eighteen and twenty year. Getting cigarettes and an uncle that's saying it's right but it certainly is a reality. The proposals face a couple of more votes though they haven't gone through yet but this is the farthest that they did so far in attempt to curb. A smoking by teenagers what would -- would racing the age of buying cigarettes too to Tony one would that. Cut back on teen smoking. When you've got. T I don't know how old you were when you first started smoking and you may not be smoking now but a lot of kids. I say that referring to teenagers lot of teenagers. Experimenting with with smoking cigarettes it was a popular thing to do elect -- it's right. I didn't smoke until I was eighteen I spoke for about a year my life and then. I tell you to what made me quit. This is an absolute truth. I had a date with this girl now -- just better -- -- back to my apartment and I was eighteen. And she had just smoked a cigarette. And we started kissing. And I thought you know. I want my mouse ever taste like her her mouth and I thought it was disgusting so that's the that's the reason that I I honestly that's what inspired me to quit spy type to this day. I remember that moment. But unfortunately young people -- always an experiment with things like -- it it doesn't mean -- -- right producer reality. I'm not sure that raising. The the age to buy cigarettes or tobacco products 21 he's going to prevent if if if you have experience with smoking if you smoke when you -- do you think. Raising the the age to buy tobacco to Tony when do you think that's gonna cut back on. On teen smoking and you know the other problem that I have I mean in some ways I have a problem with even the drinking age. Have been raised to anyone that's selling is never gonna go back. But I was growing up in in New Orleans you can drink at eighteen. I had a fake IDs so I was in bars in the French Quarter at seventy. It was a different time. But I was I guess a normal -- but not probably as Adam just admitting that was. It was a reality then. I thought I was mature enough to drink at eighteen. And I think in a lot of ways young people briefed -- on more mature at an earlier age now. And if you can I mean we've had this discussion on our show before if you can. If you can go to war. At the age of eighteen. If you he would marry you make decisions that are adult type decisions at the age of eighteen. Then -- wanna smoke and drink at eighteen. If you gonna smoke and drink and and not everybody needs to smoke and drink. Thank you did related no benefits to either one but to people are gonna do it I'd I'd I'd just opposed to raising the the smoking aged 21 not that I promote smoking but I think it always comes down to individual responsibility. And it it's not the availability of cigarettes. That's the problem it's the desire to smoke that is the problem. And if you think about how many. Can get pot. And it's not even legal. So isn't it kind of a waste of time to talk about raising. The -- -- a buying cigarettes. From eighteen to 21. If you wanna join our shooter right our numbers 2601870. Toll free 866889087.

As time of year there are a lot of people who have gone through which so many times that they just don't feel the need to go to a parade and then there are others. Who does matter how many times they've been to a parade they just. They just love going it's absolutely part of their heritage part of their culture. And part of their life. If you go to go to a parade let's do the best we can to just be considerate. Of each other. And if you see something that's inappropriate. Really inappropriate. In -- reported to the nearest police officer. I'm not gonna suggest. That you go up and talk to somebody doing something that's inappropriate. There were times that I can be. Someone assertive and if somebody's doing something wrong LCD -- to do on -- sometimes I'll I'll say something I'd like to recommend that to you because you never know what's gonna happen you have to assess the situation. At the moment and in your surroundings to determine whether or not you should she should say something. But sometimes I I don't think there's anything wrong with letting somebody else know hey you know what stopped it. We've been talking about to Miley Cyrus and the controversy about her concerts being too sexual. I don't rule out the possibility that this is something that -- Created by management. -- to increase sales and you know one of the problems with somebody like Miley Cyrus is. Where'd she go from here. You can only get so. Sexual. Before you can't go any further. Me because you can only go so far. And if you if you go that far at this point where she go from here it's going to be interesting to see how she said she does have talent. And and I would I would think that that Miley Cyrus is gonna do this now. But as she matures. And she's going to evolve into another type of performer. Madonna has always been. Sexual and maybe Miley Cyrus will always have that is her. Her her signature. Saying that she she does serve at the the main part of her image but you know she is talented she can sing. And she can't dance. And she might actually. Evolve into a more mature performer. From our FaceBook page you get a conversation going on about whether or not you would take your kids. To see Miley Cyrus and I here's a comment from -- our FaceBook page. A she's a grown woman listened -- -- voice it's real. And her show is going to be phenomenal. Also or fans -- 1112 anymore most of them around my age 1718. Unlike most pop artists nowadays she's actually good. She makes me sexual. Or whatnot. But her voice is wonderful. It's always about always not always about the appearance. Because she is so. Visual. Sometimes it's hard for people to to notice her voice but she does have a good voice and I have respect for her as. As -- talent. Here's a FaceBook posts from Carl a sexual overtones is putting it mildly. Yeah -- like I cover some of the things that -- -- in the -- blog and again that's over we're excited to -- W overcome and also on our FaceBook page which is WWL radio. Here's a comment from -- she needs to peace banked. You see it at the age of Tony one and spanking takes on an entirely different meaning here's attacks. That I'm not text and FaceBook commented to reads Sayed says said. Rafer and that is from -- again you can join that conversation our FaceBook page. And it's WWL. Radio. If you wanna join us tonight are numbers 2601878. Toll free 866889. Is nearly seventy. Tech's number is 87874. -- share an email I've guide from a listener. About. The definition of gangster rap and there's some really interesting aspects of this this email. That are so typical of some listeners who. Hear what they morning here and don't really hear what's being sent. Because they're looking for reasons to criticize -- that's -- just the way people are. I'll share this with you will be compact. I'm -- it's Friday night we're heading into the weekend morning grow operating is. Underway and it's not stop until Mardi Gras day. And will be back on -- WL. Miley Cyrus. As gut telling you might not like what she does but as long as you're not forced to go to -- concerts. Let her do it. Skewed like tonight is about the controversy with the Miley Cyrus a concert tour witches. Called the bangers tour we're also talking about this on FaceBook and here's FaceBook comment. From Donna which you take your kids to Miley Cyrus absolutely I would absolutely not take my child to her consort. And shame on any parent that does. Here's a comment from John. To be honest. She's not a tween pop star anymore and she clearly does not market herself to kids nor did she actually brought them as her fan base anymore. She's clearly trying to distance herself from Hannah Montana in the most desperate ways possible. So if some parents would think of taking their kids to a Miley Cyrus concert. To see Miley Cyrus of today the problem isn't Miley. It's the parents. And I don't totally agree with that comment. Is like I say in the blog it. I -- this is another example of if this really is true and I'm sure there repairs to complain about this and it's reasonable to think that. Their parents even if they know what they're going to which still. -- try to complain -- get some publicity for their complaints to the point where. They would actually cause a concert to be canceled that is not going to happen so if you have tickets -- you wanna get tickets to a Miley Cyrus concert go ahead bind because.
