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.

But this and our big 870 pretty -- war opinion poll question seems to be the hottest for right now to -- the stick but this -- and even. Given the other things right now after another fatal shooting at Fort Hood is -- time to change the rules to allow military personnel.

With this particular situation is that some of these military personal. Have licenses to carry a gun they could technically go off the blaze and carry the government can't carry the gun on the base that doesn't make sense to me.

And it would be like this is this the way New Orleans was back at one time and that is. People were from the city this type of amusement that we had I thought it might be in a neat idea that's all they have more than that and I'm I'm I'm I'm not saying.

Anderson Cooper of CNN recently announced that although his mother who I didn't know and soul of about a year ago it was Gloria Vanderbilt. She inherited a fortune before making her own millions but he was told at a very early age that he will not receive an inheritance. Cooper says that inherited money. Is an and an initiative soccer and a curse and that his mom won and him have more incentive so do you agree with Anderson is there. A greater incentive to work when you're not expecting a bundle when mom and -- don't pass on on -- I got nothing from my parents and you know my dead. Very very early on very young age you know pushed me into in to work and making sure that I took care of myself let's go to Joseph and -- orient Joseph. On do until and to. The monster -- -- And now. -- Not what it don't problem. Are strange that the younger you it was not an end in the I don't remember now that. -- talk about his military. And -- And on a sergeant. Our top started command but at the moment. Your. Or active. There aren't there are about too much and I think is boring. Do you think to -- -- on the that and that the military and it's been. Beaten them. Concentrate and roll out very well aren't you now should interest it was. But again and -- right now. People come back from appointments and do not unique L where are not desired but. Yeah didn't eat out at night. Somehow despite the not column. In England and -- is it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So it are all arm. I -- all about it without urgent action unbelievable.

And they don't quite well. You know people just think that there as well and you know probably. -- that much. And -- arts and a. Jolie let me. -- let me ask you this just so I'm unclear if you look you would be against. Any more military personnel being armed on base and what what about what about officers were about. And so you you're you're OK with that right now you don't think that having more people armed on base would. Maybe put people in and a -- frame of mind to what to attack our bases. Not. Not much to development and don't -- more on which it shot and that owned by. And actual ball has it helped me in the pocket bit it will help. On the back of the -- is. It harder and to note. Don't an option mention medical. Jurisdiction that opens -- and it is not meant. Gotcha I I appreciate you caller I appreciate you your point of you know regular go to another Joseph in -- -- -- back to back -- on the show how are you -- Now our our last -- was in the military he said he was against changing the rules to allow military personnel to be arm while on the base. He thought it would make everybody in the community and I was I was. Surprise soprano that Fort Hood is almost like a small -- think of a population of about 120000. Do you agree with them that it would be it would be make people feel uncomfortable. -- we have made -- Syria agree with him under the same outlook so they're in the Marine Corps. In if you sort all of in every war you know like your basic back in the states. Carry around in sixteen. -- for grenade launcher. Yellow -- and keep people all he put the -- -- like you just luck that. Could you just -- -- but you just carry a handgun. All -- relegated. Because an edit in -- and listening to a lot of the people that that they were interviewing on the base. Alt -- a lot of them were saying that they they felt that there were almost hostage on the basically felt that. If if there were more people on the base carrying handguns and I think that's what we're talking about webpart on hand to. There are going to get milk Tripoli daycare and so that Euro that you -- -- but it was -- it was the site of the military police with a handgun. That made this guy and take his own life and probably saved other people's lives and -- what I'm trying to do here in no way. Is argue with you because you're in the military you know a lot more than on though I'm I'm just trying to. I'm I'm trying to understand I always try to roll on my mind to be open and not to because. When I started tonight. I could not see any reason any reason at all one military personnel who were trained with weapons shouldn't at least be able to walk around with handguns. Weapons weapon skill we -- that weapons can get stolen bases. Our camp though that may happen a lot Arabic Olympics being too opera. Even a couple of hand grenades and -- from training for its cable that will live on an -- Tijuana Mexico. We're trying to sell it to the mafia down there. You know -- there.

Runner up there it will weapons Canada in the streets. So that might just say you know what the -- -- not -- me in the morning -- -- six being out tonight in my car and sell it. Who for being barriers of some back. -- -- let me ask you this question here I have a a text message that says you can carry on base with written approval. From your company CEO. But must be redone one a CO changes does is that right. -- but they've been written yet to. Went down bullet. Or that weapon itself or that one. As in. Are -- in the first gulf war.

You know these people they poll of anyway so I'm just sick -- I'm just sick of the -- Well let's get sent to some that a little bit -- to the see on the screen you'll -- we'll talk about yeah. He gets to this discussion all right I I love guns and I think that you know you help you control your -- you can. It -- you can -- you can use it but it usually -- -- I'm I'm I'm just surprised that we've had back to back military people who are you out against that does not everything that I saw. All on the news this afternoon the the interviews of of people who live at Fort Hood the majority of them said absolutely that they would feel safer. If they could by Carrie at their side arm. And an absolutely show when I'm with -- and that's to real world and really wanted to tackle usually get away from the politics and then when I'm tired of the politics there was. Everything's political -- that we don't have any enjoyment any freedom. Everything's drawn a mole people will be something that -- the popular sorry for -- that's why I called due to get away. That's that's that's why wanna talk about all the things that I find it personally I've found that this whole world is so politically correct -- to be so careful with you can't kid you can't joke and and you saved.

After all fatal shooting at Fort Hood is -- time to change the rules to allow military personnel. To be arm while on the base 72% say yes 28% actually know. We've got a couple of military people who've called in and they do not believe it should be trained to answer to that. This text message says it's an army base. Not a Wal-Mart.

Are in favor that they say that they would feel safer. With being able to carry their sidearms and you don't agree with that done. We're not quite sure they feel that way just after that apple brand and it is the only sparkles armed. Chuck it and well. Yeah -- -- long spoke I don't know what weapons that he is. You know one of the things that I was unable find out and wants the press conferences. -- already get the weapon on base of the from from what they said that was not a licensed.
