Good evening it is great to be back with you tonight it's -- Tuesday night like I realize that for march the 25 it's it's kind of cool and breezy outside but again you know it's gonna get around here. It's gonna happen soon just enjoyed -- you can have a lovely walk tonight. If you drive it around to control the wind is down you might not even have to have the air conditioning on tonight's -- receive money. So there's just so many many positive things about this -- cool weather we're having. -- -- to a concert last -- it's it was a real issue in the ninety terminal on last night and pelicans are on the other stations sited at a show last night. So I got a chance to go to a rare concert during the week you'll talk about that coming up in the top rated cable also talk about it tomorrow on the show tonight at his concert that I went to last night. I noticed a trend that I first noticed when I saw and at the concert. Recently. And it's just a lot of positive things. About today's young generation. It also is something that it reminds me about this new trend that is going to be dominating. The music that this decade will be remembered forcible get into that. Now we get into the top eight and -- it's time for tonight's topic today the topic things we'd like you know as we begin our show tonight. On WW well number eight. Already NFL who will now sand. Slam dozens of football over the goal post after touchdown is scored your Jimmy Graham I did this and that Tony Gonzales of the Atlanta Falcons also did this. And you know the players are jumping up and aired their -- the football over the goal post now they can still jump up and touch the goal post. But they cannot use the ball as a proper -- this is not a new rules they say it's simply the NFL continuing the crackdown on players. Doing things that they're not supposed to do with the ball there's always been ruled to not supposed to use the ball as props I guess state. I think the NFL has far far too much time understands. Because -- they're trying to figure out these these rules to constantly well again it's not a new rule but it's an interpretation of rule. About using the the ball as as a prop Steve Geller. Who does says sports hero -- -- -- -- he's got a a blog on our website and our opinions -- to review a dot com. I know fund leak the NFL no Fun League. -- says no to dunking he's got some interesting comments there about he says. You know it would be all right if they penalize a player for. Grabbing the goal post if it if it tilts but not if it -- to dunk the ball and again. This this game is such a game of of great emotion. That if a player wants to do something like that. Dunked the ball over the goal and really what's the big deal now spiking has been grandfathered in. So spiking is still out but they can't. They can't -- and trigger lot of talk about that on sports talker today. Number seven on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Malaysian government has announced that Malaysian airlines flights 370. Ended in the south Indian Ocean and there were no survivors. Yet there are still many who question that conclusion. Were you satisfied with the media's coverage of this dismissing flight. There's a poll that shows that 48%. Of those surveyed. Agree with the amount of coverage the media gave missing flight 370. And 33% said it went too far you know we've we've we've been talking on the show about -- The news media gives us essentially what we tell them we wanna see. And via the ratings of CNN did apparently go up a little bit and they -- the one network out of the the three cable networks. It really dedicated the most time really went wall to wall in fact they're still almost covering it wall to wall. I have to admit to an -- may be the other networks are doing this as well. But particularly today I noticed that that Fox News. -- a couple of the the Fox News shows. Win out of their way to find people who. Wonder why they have stopped looking to the north. Implying that this plane has landed somewhere. Feeding those conspiracy. Theories that this plane is going to be used as a as a -- You know I guess anything is is still possible. And ears so a lot of like criticism of the Malaysian government that they as far as I know they never had to deal with a big disaster like this with -- of the world media. -- being interested in this China is trying to get ahold of all of the satellite pictures. They were used in China's very critical that the flight was from elation to Beijing China. So obviously there -- a lot of relatives in China who lost. Family members on a flight and inference -- loved ones on the flight. So -- China wants to make sure that they have all the information right that I heard today that. The China actually might wanna get ahold of those satellite pictures to find out more about other nations. And -- satellite capabilities and they really don't care as much about the missing flight as they care about finding out the satellite capabilities. Of other nations. Number six on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Several anti Obama here TV campaign designed to help Republican candidates in this upcoming election. Had been proven to be falls. Does the truth ever matter. Or are people simply willing to accept falsehoods. If it supports their opinions. Have you or has anyone you know. Benefited from the Affordable Care Act known as obamacare. Against some of these ads were checked by the Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler. And the the ads -- sponsored by -- AFP. Americans for prosperity. And and really I would think that everybody would before. For prosperity business in this group is -- Americans for prosperity. And affectionate percent that there are problems where if with most of these these ads on television. What are the problems that I've had with the whole obamacare debate from the very beginning. Is that neither side wants to recognize that the at the site has support. Conservatives. Argue that it's terrible. And yet. At two people very very close to me have benefited greatly from obamacare. Mean I'm not making that up I have nothing to gain. By telling you that if it's not true the two people close to me that I care very much about have benefited tremendously from Obama here. So the truth is. A lot of people -- benefit. However there are those who support Obama care who don't wanna recognize that there are problems and that not everybody's gonna benefit. So when you have this kind of probably this is so typical so typical of the the social political debates we get in today. It's black and white and it's not like him. That would've been so much more credibility from the very beginning. If conservatives admitted you know there's some things about this that are good. And the -- Not the least of which is being a female was not a pre existing condition. And it would be good if those on the left liberals would admit -- This is imperfect and yes some people may end up suffering as a result of this. But these ads and there's one particular that's -- running locally here in Louisiana. -- says that Obama care is. Is is no good it's it's not working well for some people it is it doesn't mean it's gonna work for everybody but. You know the truth lies in the middle of what both sides are saying it's it's just sad that it it comes down to. Neither side wants to recognize that the other side does have a point. And I'd love to talk to anybody who is personally benefited or knows anybody who has benefited. From obamacare. -- the other problem with naming this obamacare. And conservatives named it obamacare the Affordable Care Act named it obamacare. To give it a derogatory name. To make it seem like it it's like it's it's a joke and the government wants to take care -- -- by giving at that name. What if it works. Instead of it melting into history as the Affordable Care Act. It will for ever. Give a Democrat in the White House correct. Barack Obama. So without realizing they took a chance. By declaring it obamacare. If you wanna join our show with a comment tonight about anything we're talking about -- numbers 2601878. To all 3866889. -- early seventy. At a tech's number as they Tiffany Tiffany.

That's up from 97 the previous year 2011. I'm sure you're not gonna be surprised to hear this but alcohol was a factor in about 43% of the case is perhaps more.

A nine year old Grand Junction, Colorado girl shaved her head its support for friend who's fighting cancer and lost all over hair to chemotherapy. And a student was sent home from camp rock academy yesterday. Because she broke the school dress coat the mother even called the school to explain why. Their daughter had -- -- net.

So here's a student that shaves her head. In support. Of another child. The girl's nine shaved her head her friend who has cancer is eleven years old. Why couldn't parents look at this and say you know what this is a really wonderful thing. And nobody should be upset with this and we're gonna break the school rules for this.

That are punished it should not be punished. Did the school to the right thing. You may agree that it it has to come down to the black and white situation has come down to. Zero tolerance if it's against the rules to shave your head and no -- Conchita it or should the schools made an exception in this case.

For churches and other special exceptions for religiously affiliated nonprofits like schools and hospitals and things like that. But for profit private corporations. They are required to cover the full range. Of of a woman's preventative care which includes birth control. Now do you have a problem with that if you for profit. Should you be required. To provide.

But when I think about some of the music of the sixties it was really very negative. When I think about the music of the grunge movement in the nineties that was very very angst ridden. Negative music people were not optimistic young people were not optimistic. But there's a young generation that it has their hands in the air and they're they're. They're having fun and they're responding to music that reminds me in many ways. Of the music of the eighties.

You know in in in in the world if humans we always want to blame the bigger thing. You always want to blame the train. If a car gets hit by a train and and news stories tend to lean in that direction if you if you listen to news stories about when trains hit cars. Did the stories almost inevitably. Imply. That that the trains at fault. But the train didn't veer off the tracks. The vehicle to get on the tracks. And so I I know I noticed this with with cars and pedestrians the assumption is.
