: 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.

That I I -- go to -- store they were there would be on sale I get three of four half gallons put him in my appraiser and go home and eat a little food. And at first I started out with a little portion of vice tree. That wasn't enough then I said why should I waste related in a bowl this can dirty the bowl so let's start not a carton.

Of the night is another person who says there the food they can't can't walk away from its blood broiled hamburgers that's another one. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's time for Bob's Bozo little of the day. Are both incredible comes from -- total Florida. Where Bozo Ramon Garcia had a thriving marijuana growing operation things were really going well. -- -- -- -- adding on to it was a grow rooms adding more and more plants than -- polite to make the plants drive. I guess she added one light to mini power company crew was called to the neighborhood after report of a power outage. The crews replaced -- blown transformer used. Only to have a new -- blown moments after the installation. And they traced the source of the big -- -- or bozos residents were they discovered a small fire in the hole was meter box. In several extra wires are putting more power. Into -- home. Cops were called in our Bozo was busted as he tried to dispose. A 51 plants he had growing inside by throwing them over the fence in his neighbor's backyard 51 plants. Neighbor swears it was more like 25. Don't know what's it back to the to the phones -- daughter Randi -- how are you tonight. -- -- -- -- -- Going -- going with you tonight. It's -- pretty good was Colin. Talking about the cost of -- Sure if you lost your job. Would you have enough money saved to last more than a month. Yes so worked so you're in good -- and I'll negotiate with doubt about it my question is -- -- hear people talk and that there are raised minimum wage to attend our year. In Louisiana -- the cost of living keeps going up but -- all of a summary of. The out. The minimum wage of the cost of living because living is going to whale. Across let me go whale but that said minimum wage just farcical seven point whatever -- and -- Yet Clinton. Our units are you in favor of that. Yes that point favorite. But I'm just wondering when they -- it and then when you go to McDonald's is a bird can be on dollar. Absolutely and -- ever listen I'm all for people making as much money is legitimate if anyone thinks. That they're going to were that these companies are gonna raise the minimum wage. And in some kind of way not try to get that money back by either hiring less people. Making people. Do more things I have a friend who works at a place and it was hard for one thing that he was there about four months of the -- -- and a look if you wanna continue to work or you're gonna have to do this job -- and more and more companies are getting into the multitask in. I am and I'm not sure where I stand on all -- on the minimum wage increase I'm for a to a degree but I'm afraid. Bet if they increase the minimum wage that other people -- gonna lose their jobs or businesses or not just going to sit there. And let their cost go up well I'll pass it along to you at all. Right actually dark we -- on. Well what -- your what is you're guilty pleasure food. It would have to be blue bell is great but here you talk about that and it's got you want to watch where did. You have a favorite flavor. Like Napoleon and the rocky road. I like the banana -- like the banana split -- the Bob Murray was not a chocolate chip. As well liked the draw -- items like tomorrow. We are here. And you know it's it's that's -- ice cream. I'm not sure how long has been here but it won at one time. It was only in in the Dallas area and I have a friend who content didn't commute but from time -- time had to had to drive to Dallas. And he would take an ice chest and just -- and as much blue bell as he possibly could. And bring in and so I've actually been eating blue -- both orally -- with a on the shelves your New Orleans. Broker felt all right Randi anything goes through and add to the show. -- no -- -- appreciate the right to DiMarco. All right thank you so much art all right but got some lines open so let me go ahead and kind of reboot the show tell you were regrettable wait before I get of that. We all on watching in the news -- against maybe reportedly had when the president visited the Pope. The president gave the post. A gift a gift. A -- of seeds. From the White House garden so the president of the United States. From the richest country. In the world visits the Pope and gives in the chest proceeds. From the White House garden my first thought was when I saw this. What in the world to hope to do with a chest of seeds and you'd think the Pope smiled and said. Just what I've always wanted. Evolved in that position which alone gives you an absolute. Goof ball gift and you -- I got and I'm not quite sure what it is for and I can't remember who gave it to me. I'm afraid that maybe one of my kids gave it to me. And if they are lesbian in the here this probably going to be upset so I don't know what that should keep going. Or should stop right now. They gave me a and all of all Ole mister. We know where you church where you can miss your olive oil in that way you don't have to. I don't know. But you know what I use all of wall like if if I'm making and do -- and Cokie I've. Or if you don't salad I've -- I don't -- -- gullible what that. Good virginal bald like and sop up with some French run after. Let's go to let's go to marked in the applause how are you mark. I -- on eight. I didn't want. -- At short and -- the animal weight problem. Almond board. Yeah -- Leo you know borrow -- -- what Portugal while that are out there. It actually it CEO that man. One man man. You know they get them out that the politician. They're doing more every year back so. There's one error in. -- The ones that there were people that make in the. Well of the politicians are stealing you think each year they they have to steal more of the cost of living goes up. There properly orders -- -- -- needed to get away. What is your favorite to a pleasure to. We're -- our red beans and rice. Do you think to yourself. -- didn't. Tickle me. Yeah -- and argued that are big smoke and -- and smoked sausage. Smoke. You can't count out. Go. My wife looks the best red beans and rice of overhead. Ali it's an important -- plays with a like a red beans creepy little watery and I hate when you go into restaurants and time. And -- serve your red beans and rice and put the rights of the plate that put the red beans on the water just goes through when you got. We got water really is I don't know that's that's just. War. I appreciate you calling mark. Let's go to Brian -- Brian thank you goalie WWL tonight a -- I'm bill well banks take a look at all on the mere commoner boat young people and about on the job why -- all it. Maybe set some light on this because economics is somewhat -- -- -- at -- okay. Well basically what's happening is that government growth and it's happening on both this is not right you know left this year. It's growing so much to the point where -- -- government spending makes up 40% of our current don't -- look at our economy government spent. So -- government grows they need more taxes to sustain and that's why you call a living continues going. What is happening though. It's 70% of the bulletin of the country's going to well transfer social programs and that number keeps growing every year. So you're killing a productive. And businesses. Are now fighting over regulation. And you talk about in the nineteen under -- Government spending -- 3%. The economy. So basically. That was a capitalist economy. Because me you to go to me. Good start businesses really eat it if we get it -- And we keep it that running as quickly as possible. Nowadays yet so much over regulation. But legally. They're not going to be. So do you see any way. Any time in the immediate future that we can start turning this around. Because I don't I don't know I don't know if it's as simple. As electing a new president I really don't. -- politicians existed grow the government data at no Infiniti of drinking the government doesn't matter what side of the aisle they all all. And the problem is it's gonna keep growing and growing into the point I just don't see any way out of this. Come every politician -- -- -- -- street big government line and if you look at the numbers it's grown ridiculously and we were almost spending. Each year. Government spending almost equal in World War II. Which was 50% at the time. It's so ridiculous that we're headed if we don't changed. Probably about thirty years -- -- on some varied diet stuff. Brian being. I am with you I was having this exact conversation. What someone just a couple of days ago. Almost word for word. If if if I have if I have any fear for my grandchildren I'm not sure thirty years from now forty -- you know what this country. Is is going to be because I can tell you one thing -- -- the cost to living continue to go up and I agree with you one thing I don't care who's in office. If if politicians wanna know why do we have such a negative attitude toward them. We almost have the same at least I do and I'm just being I'm I'm being honest with -- So don't. Give it to say they've attitude have against -- Carson and go -- ahead. Another bad thing is we have the baby boomer generation admits that and they will not -- not putting blame on any -- specific part of they have really mismanaged them absolutely. They cannot retire absolutely but they that the law and promote and in corporate America. But he can't get new blood in the end. And at double thing it's just screwed up and and and then you look at. The taxes yeah yeah having marriage rate -- Don't let that the next one forward if not being produced. It's great to have dropped 66% since 1950. And -- -- if you are bad. Back to class according thirty. And -- have a viable for the. I don't know I'm with you a 100% what what I'm worried about is the fact that. That this this this current generation. They do not manage their money and and and that's why only 48%. Have. Enough money to less than more than one month what what I did concern about is what happens to these people. Of like what like that the generation of of of my kids when they look when they get around you know. 55 years old and -- and they have not managed their money and if they lose their job and they can't find another job you and I have to support them. And they may be waiting for Social Security which may not even be here. In in in twenty years. How -- all these people going to exist. The way out beer and a hate that they'll come doom and gloom and I really like this shy away from that but we don't Spain we're gonna go mad Max and area. It it it it could be I do not disagree with that at all the only thing I'm looking -- -- I'm I'm wondering if if if if families will come -- pull together and and and we may go back to the time where you have. A two or three families the Libyan under one roof I appreciate your colleague Brian. They are much or also taught him not guilty pleasures tonight -- -- read real quick like a couple of the guilty pleasure that I got text.

With the cold glass of milk -- you like that. That is absolutely great 26017866889087. And grab on the phone call would go to Mike in -- Mike what about you you know what's your pleasure food. I'm just carry it out and yet. You'd think cares what you think it's -- and that's favorite deal to pleasure. Your real chart. Say that again. Well not. I'm not sure what he said didn't make any sense anyway so let's. -- that was -- Somalia just you know every now and then you know people say I like -- problems in the world why are you talking about something silly like this you know why. Because I want to and because I can't -- -- and you don't like it. Too bad. I'm department. On the field -- -- and it you know -- hit -- -- If allowed it to me right back I'm Bob Mitchell interest due to big gates said he WW LA and implement dot com I'm Bob Mitchell filling in person tonight.

You know a lot going on tonight and them I'll get to the pulled in in in just a second but I did wanna. Bring this into our talked table because when I first read this I said. The apocalypse. Must be run around the corner second coming going to be right around the corner or something like this actually happen. But child and they reach after school program. Was told that the bookie was rating during his three reading period was unacceptable. And had to be put away. Nor does the name of the book. The Bible. The boy's family complained. And here's where it gets scary. Guess who came to their rescue the ACL. View. I'll repeat that for you. The ACLU. Claimed it was rescue the ACLU. Tennessee. Is defending the rights of the student to read the Bible school. That he thinks some educators don't really understand there's a difference between no school -- religion or prayer. And not allowing religion in school so the ACLU. Came to the rescue. And told the school is not the role with this young men bring in his Bible to class and reading it. You think the ACLU finally got something right main. I'm I'm shocked -- a personal thought maybe it was an April fool's joke. 26 year old -- 7866889087. Let's go to. Randy how are you Randy. I don't -- I don't know how I'm doing fine you hear that last story talked about. As an economic where. You wouldn't want can assure you know what. -- situation where not -- you can child Bob. Right but but the ACLU rarely come to the rescue people like that usually they're the ones saying. Get the Bible models cool so I was. It. On odd ID to. So what's on human Randy. Aren't aren't they are. What are all the previously talked about at all. -- -- -- -- -- -- Situation yeah -- -- -- and I disagree. About the fact that old age problem. -- Are marketed as warm belt but. Are noble and you know. And they got -- in response to. Large population at large truck and -- -- most of the money out of the what are -- I'd like George George Bush George -- -- Outpatient and they learn it yeah. There additional. But don't get our government has got to start spending less money so maybe we can pay less taxes. Well I think that we have a bit -- to say man ducked out such old right adding that yeah. The a bank and pick up and let them. Because we reduced the regulation. Financial market so it didn't take advantage of it. It will get on. And they are operating that basically. Didn't make the action agenda that would be at our. Oh so what are we didn't do what do we do to help turn the guy back what are we put we do to get out of this mess -- because at at at this point that. Less than -- less than 50% of Americans say that if they award to lose their job that they could not survive beyond one month. Well I think the first -- yeah he'll. Let you know as. And I had it gotten on Bartlett but a lot and but it still not sure where it should where it needs to -- I think the the -- For. Just. Expansion. And out -- -- at the point where the miners are at war. Integrate distributed. Data or are you is that -- support our culture. You know I'll trade the middle class and the lower.
