Tonight on the SCOOT show with guest host Bob Mitchell: in a new report released today only 48% of Americans have enough money saved to last more than a month, if they lose all sources of income. If you lost your job today, how long would you last before needing assistance? AND: a costume company Morphsuits played everyone big time today… announcing they developed a suit using “light-bending” technology that would render its wearer invisible. Problem is--it’s an April Fools’ joke. If you had a suit that could make you invisible…where would you want to go…and what would you wanna do? THEN: When it comes to fast food--burgers, fries, fried chicken, tacos, malts, frosties, frapachinos, etc… which is your guilty pleasure? What’s the one fast food you can’t turn down?
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?

Families moving back into their mom and dad -- because they. They lose their job and that that that is a big fear and a lot of people I've talked to have that fear. Especially when -- around 4550 years -- you lose that job. It's very very difficult to get another job and the pure accounting on social security and help it. Hey it may not be around and be you have to wait I think until at least here around those 65 years -- So are you argues that financially do do you worry about it has anyone got into the shape already where you -- a job and you lost your job and he lost all your savings and you just don't know what to do and then eventually you know when it comes to people living off slow vote the state are living off the federal government fuel and I. After a pick up that tab so if you were to lose your job. How much money do you have to last -- a month two months six months a year. And a costume company more suits played a big time. April fools joke today. It shocked me and that they claim that they've developed a suit using light bending technologies. That would render. The winner invisible even showed what was supposed to be someone naturally there was no one in the picture because there was a debate invisible. The problem was it was just a big April fool's joke but I did get -- think about it if you had a suit -- -- -- so open visible. Where. Would you want ago in other words the view of slipped in somewhere. And snoop. And just listen the single there up to. Listen to see what they're talking about. Where would you go.

It was your -- to secure 178668. At nine point seven let's go to a canned Cat Power you. Just -- on that particular call per cent collar. And I have actually gone to the southern part of the -- -- caught your review your -- Detroit. Thank you bonus program and a in regards to your play -- Oh points in particular don't. Look at the picture. The -- ordered treatment the redistribution of wealth. Everybody. Capital hole and it almost isn't there 1% old 95% while instructor. Now whether that that's exactly right or wrong yeah well it's a transport an amount that sparks who owns one. -- -- them it's inevitable. That the lower Echelon. Prices computerized. And student match. Which would put complacent anyways but -- the way we're just don't match. It's inevitable that that living standard is gonna go down. What do you think we can do if anything to stop this spiraling cost of -- I know I know one thing retirement. It's certainly costing a lot more now then than I anticipated. And I find out so many families are living from from paycheck to paycheck. And if if something happens you know. What do they do and what do you what do you think the curious what do you think we do to get this country and in better financial condition. I would -- and I actually went through a situation like that -- burst pipe got sick and I had to change my profession. And it was fortunate that we were still -- a market that was an economy that was inserting. And I would sport or perhaps six let's -- that a no. I could not saying that I'm industry I can't do it I don't understand how to do it if if you want to change. Cap inflationary costs and if so I'd do. Don't know. I know it is a problem for for millions and millions of Americans. I -- I think more and more families are doing. Is rather than you know the kids leave and go away if if they do away that they come -- Coleman and it looks like. One of the things happening with -- -- you have in multiple play at least under the same roof. Just so they can say about it because you know mom and -- of course senior citizens are retired they need extra money to. May I ask how old York yes you. An answer but you. What question would lead to possible within eighteen. Hours. -- joke to Austria one side and and the loss of them. -- -- a great job where we're gonna have a pension. Is that percentage I don't see -- even worse. Bet percentage of people that don't have the statement sent to make it true. That stretch spirited there certainly have a lot so are most criminal. At the then -- it's. So that -- then. You know utter utter -- a month so -- And do you think there are many people would just take the attitude it's it's cheaper not to work and let the government support me. Actually not. I don't believe that is becomes under her I believe there is a percentage of people that Putin. But I believe it is you get across America. And start we need more more people I have I can't say that. A large portion at saint I just sort got to collect. No but a lot of a lot of kids -- -- public college and can't find jobs and they wind up having to a big a student loan in the playoffs and they. Need to move back with mom and dad just so they can survive and in in many families. Mom and dad are kind of looking forward to the kids moving back home because then the kids to help help them pay their expenses. And don't concede the economic more than -- sure you did it mean more you're likely to. And I'm not certain that there has been certainly a bad thing. And gets you always. Working together collectively right. It was in the -- the order to. The third and Ortiz. It was a it was a collective strict reluctantly working together. And that -- -- so. You know either now. Or so right. Listen on on the lighter side one of our other subjects were talking about the pleasure through original post fast to our bras so what. What are your favorite pleasure foods foods that you you know you probably shouldn't eat them you just can't turn and a. I'm I'm fortunate I haven't felt weren't so that -- -- -- it's -- where -- -- -- You know an academic -- on but you have one and has -- -- There are -- country that you kinda get some help in stroke.
