Navigated update on -- -- coming up here in just a few moments -- we're talking about the American flag is a constant constantly controversy about this. American -- sometimes are made in China. What does American flags can be made cheaper in China and in our government is buying American flags and our government is broke shouldn't the government buy flags from the cheapest possible source rather than spend more money. In America and why are American flags more expensive in America. In parts because. Americans. A charge more and the cost of living here is obviously more we treat people differently than the people love for the Chinese. China are treated in in many different ways. But maybe maybe business owners in America. Should. Should take less of a profit. And sell the American flags. For less to the American government so the American government is an attempted to go to China and if American flights are cheaper in China and -- real is it just it doesn't seem to make sense to buy an American flag that is made in China. But isn't that the reality of the global. Economic system that we are now are all part of should American flags be less expensive here. And if it's part of our free enterprise system. To find the best product at the lowest possible price is everything wrong with buying an American -- in China if you wanna join our show tonight with a comment about anything we're talking about our numbers 260. 1878.

With this nineteen year old pregnant woman so we're talking about the whole art of road rage. Winner you most likely to feel that surge. Of road rage when you're on the road what is -- that people do with it so quickly makes you feel and I know exactly what that feels like is I feel it sometimes. And I know you feel it is well. And by talking about it maybe we could figure out ways to be aware of the fact that it's coming and in May be due more to. To try to ease those. Those moments of rage because if you really act out on the moments of rage no good is gonna come -- that. You might be the victim of that you might be the perpetrators of and we might not want to admit it but there have been times when we have actually been guilty of road raging.

And Bob about the flag thing. I'm a little older Americans again from the old school. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And broadcasting. And I believe that we think we should do. There's been many a time that I picked up a flag saying that was made in China. And I put it back down. The reason is partially patriotic. Partially I believe we should keep the dollar ball and that mainly because. -- jobs for Americans. Lord Oakley. Job already were -- Mexico and other places to outsource. And there are jobs that are wanted to hear America right now and we're not helping them because they've been shipped overseas. I'd like -- Seymour. American jobs for Americans here all looked at a high rate of unemployment right now -- -- American flag. Or any other thing should be -- factored in America. I agree. I've been told over the years unions outraged the great charitable profit. And but mom and pop businesses to. -- a little -- they want any kind of propaganda -- doors -- -- Troll I would vote for that eight billion dollar home as much as we possibly can practically it and. -- and that's the question Dan how much would we give up in terms of spending more money for something. To buy something American may do or do Americans really go out of their way to buy American made or do they simply by the best product at the lowest possible price. I think that last statement you made this. Unfortunately very true because look at all the cars that are on the highway and take your total. And an American group is something that is not only part of the American consuming public but it's it's also part of American business owners. That's true and they would traditional sport car because to make more profit. And well let's look at it. A lot of friends that -- born pars. Mostly east and west over the big pond. And their complaint is equally as much as two hours there's a big part figure from overseas. And that dealer in cart side that the longer that long and so forth or Obama complained about report -- whereas I have would be coupled Chevrolet. And I give parts order -- as local area. Look at the part -- and trying to I don't like that can. -- I understand that we're you know we are part of a global economy and that's that's not gonna that's not change.

Point seven. -- a tax receipts -- but he it to some of these text about it road rage and I have gotten many here's attacked. If you try to pass some bodies it's going under the speed limit on it too -- single lane road. And because you're trying to pass them they've installed on the gas. To where they will let Japan as and then it. When you slow down to try to get behind them because of oncoming traffic approaching. Then they hit the brakes to keep you from from getting back over a -- avoiding an -- I I realize that I know I I do see that. And if there's if there's clearly open space this is one thing that really bothers me if attacked constantly. Say to myself when I'm looking in there in the rearview mirror a constantly say to myself really are you kidding me I'm getting over and I'm talking to myself in the car. There's there's party's base comedian over so I have decided to be courteous driver and put on my turn signal to elect. Everybody know that I'm gonna get over in the of the -- Quite often the car in the other -- Tries to tries to take up this space tries to speed up to prevent me from getting over when there was already plenty of room for me to simply. Ease over into the other -- I think our our our people becoming that territorial. It's like that that's your space. If somebody does that to me if I've got enough space between me in the -- front of me as somebody tries to kind of squeeze in at times. That I'll slowdown and give myself a little more space. I find it interesting that the people so often. -- picked these little battles. And and fight over over territory and I think quite often that's what idiots. Infringement of of the space in front of you. You're really not gonna get to your destination that much quicker. If I'm driving along and as somebody pulls in front -- -- and and I've got to. Slowed down just a little bit to have enough safe space between me and the vehicle in front of me. That's -- really caused me to get to my destination that much later and yet. They're people who rage over that and and get upset and then you get into the tailgating issue and that is the key for me. -- somebody gets beat I guess because I realize how dangerous -- -- when somebody gets right on my tail. That is when I start start to really stirred start to feel this this road rage. And -- you know what that surged feels like you've just get that feeling and again I'm not gonna do anything dangerous although I have to admit. That there had been times when somebody has to a -- -- and I'm not recommending that you do -- And -- is not a safe thing to do. But I have -- mavericks. To get started to back up again I don't recommend that you do that it's not it's not -- it's not the right thing to do. But a citywide. It works. Because then they back up. Tail -- is really dangerous. And you might not care about what happens to your car or yourself but I care about me and Michael. -- One -- safe distance and you're not gonna get to your destination that much quicker if you're a few feet closer to my car. If you're driving 67 miles an hour if you -- a few feet closer I mean on. I don't know the physics. But I'm sure there's physics. Equation that could figure this out -- not gonna get there that much quicker if you just a few feet closer so it really comes down to the individual. Road rage is the manifestation of people becoming very territorial. And -- if I mentioned on the air I I honestly believes that many of the road Rangers in the CBD in the French Quarter. Our cab drivers. Not all cab drivers. So if you're not one of those cab drivers who is. Aggressively driving to our streets. And honking your horn when you don't really need to lockyer warned if you're not one of those cab drivers than we love -- But he the effort of this city has been to clean up our camps physically. To make sure that the cancer mater are updated with. Things like a credit card machines it and the video screens sandy can only be sold because we wanna impress or terrorist. What about the it would about the demeanor of cab drivers. More needs to be done to address them. And I see this every day walking to the station from my apartment in the CBD. IC it constantly in the French Quarter. There's a lot of -- hawking does a lot of aggressive driving. Among many cab drivers and it's it's not good for pedestrians as I could from -- is not good forward the image of the city. So what is it that you really feel that sense of of road rage would bothers you most. And and by talking about this again I think what we do is it realize how ridiculous it is to get into a rage. You've got your hands on this. This potential weapon. A car. A truck -- feet whatever it's a potential weapon in in any situation at any moment. And so while we have this weapon in our possession. When we start to rage. There are so many people who just let things get totally out of control. And they ended up in jail somebody ended up hurt. Somebody and that a dead. And and you can get -- a -- had trouble if you. If you find ways to manifest this rage that you feel when -- players sold by talking about it maybe we can just realized. Wait a minute you know what that really is stupid OK that -- is wrong. That person was absolutely wrong to do that but why am I gonna get upset over -- And do you have any secrets for dealing with your road rage.

And a text number is -- Seve sent a quarter techs are coming up -- are talking about American flags they should they always been made in America. If our government is broken can -- -- cheaper in China then shouldn't our government save money by buying American flags in China.

Ninety miles an -- the most humbling and we believe in because I don't lie down and how much better go play. This is first friends I -- you so much bleaker that's that's as the subject of the sought. And we we see that all the time I mean you know is sometimes if you put on your boy there it's. It's a warning to other motorists to speed up and and not like you'll -- what's the incentive to use of -- of people are gonna respected what some people do. But in this part of the country they'll respect it as much as they do and other parts of the country. Today if you like it if if you're in the Pacific northwest in Seattle or Portland. And there's a driver in a -- like a Subaru. And you put on your pointer. I'm telling you there. He's going to be extreme courtesy and it's interesting how the or people in in -- different cars who who show more. Courtesy than the people who drive the Carson I know that's stereotyping and certainly there are exceptions but. But in general it's a thing I've noticed really not only here but throughout the country. So -- you well what do you feel road -- of what's your road race story -- it's good to talk about road rage because it it makes us realize how ridiculous it is for us to get. Into that.

I guess from the transportation state people. That that they actually law Bobby's. All of trying to arm you're playing because the Malaysian government. With telegram the plane -- -- know -- -- -- that to all walks house which where the plane would go yeah but. What he was saying -- after the second day they do this plane went to war he reputable web for. You know should all you know what that would. Yeah as a Malaysian government's. I don't know whether it was just total incompetence or whether they were trying to conceal something but they were not forthcoming with information in the beginning which might give. And have had done more to find has -- because obviously the more time goes by the more difficult it's it's going. It's going to be defined it. Right right and then detonate that it was to read the blade when he decided it will look out that was -- -- that state law. And they also and it she the issue. A cargo ship was patent and that every.

That that he can get to where they go because they're less resistance. Yet the -- here yeah right right and you I think you could travel was forced fuels concern you can travel a farther but 45000 feet for an airline jets. You know that's really high most of the most of the airlines that we've -- on in the United States and even around the world are somewhere between.

Is the American flag you know. I think. You know the sort of global economy. Opera that I mean I think it in nature and more competitive and actually a true that we need those type of competition. So the American flag that's the one thing sacred. That this country ought to protect because -- and then went and put their formal. They -- served -- -- country. It will. They're they're out there for this country in an error. Jetlag it's simple they can take the country in doubt that -- -- like. Winning a lot of that is -- -- -- -- to keep it straight. At flag as a great. Eight fortunately -- me. And he. He killed. That -- -- what they want. There -- a little tough but yes Steve it does seem very unethical and -- quite ironic to buy an American flag meeting Japan when you think about what the play flag stands for. But I also understand how the free enterprise system works and American greed has. Led to flags being made overseas. And even the American guy I know there has been. I'm talking and in congress about requiring that the government by American flags from American companies which aside but if the government is is broke thin. You know maybe American company should be less greedy with the profits that they're trying to make off the government in selling them America reflects. I don't know that that that point. And I get which same -- that critical that this day in this country can't control one. All items that make in this country taking control -- -- say. Look we needed braces you know the government made flag and it's in -- is that the one -- it's sacred and I believe that they America. -- patriotic and I think -- company that would do it would cost it would give it would do you think you need to do that it does but. -- -- companies in the United States and I don't buy into the notion that. It's all about greed in all. I think that -- screwed applause. But there'll companies Steve it has been very famous for. Ripping off the government there was these years ago wouldn't you know that the Pentagon was buying toilet seats that cost 600 dollars rules I am so some American companies ripping off. Its own country. Absolutely. Believe that and I and I see that and that goal -- and has a lot of people that. That do those things that we talk to fly right now the question is should it be outsourced. And I have to walk item should not be outsourced. Everything else the perhaps that the you have to. Yet the Pete Best you can be -- -- that a product. In action it'll be better because. And come back in and away and do it right there and then that'll make it better company. And you aren't from that experience -- -- -- You wonder if it would be like if you worry if you increase and the the Greek government is about whether the Greek government should buy real Greek yogurt or if they should importing less expensive Greek yogurt. I realize it's not like it is different but it's the same kind of analogy. Yeah it's it's it's it's it's -- analogy it's -- -- agree. This nation. And we need to embrace that.
