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.

The season premiere of the highly acclaimed AMC series mad men attracted less of an audience than last year's season premiere and less of an audience then the season finale. -- last June. Has the AMC series mad men jumped the shark that's the term used to describe TV shows that say on the year to warrant. It was inspired by that happy days episode in which funds he jumped the shark on water skis. During a trip to Hollywood. What TV shows jumped the shark a number of them have. The least of which was it was heavy days that they all in the family. -- -- that being Archie is place that show jumped the shark. Long before it ended but then there are TV shows.

Point 78. And a -- Amber's late 7870. Russell talking about their shooting that took place at a Jewish community center yesterday on the eve of passover and and it was. I hate crime all right -- been classified now hate crime. This is -- Kansas the guy's name the suspect's name is -- going cross. Who is known is Glenn Miller or simply. Miller. I don't know exactly how he got that nickname he's a known white supremacist. And a former leader of the kkk. He opened fire with a shotgun and pistol killing three people it's my understanding that none of the people he killed were Jewish. And he was spewing out. Pro Nazi. Slogans. And statements. Shortly after being arrested. And it's again it's another tragedy that results from hate. Which stems from complete. And total ignorance. Tonight we're also talking about -- house committee in the regional legislature that has advanced a bill that would declared the Bible the official state book of Louisiana. Alabama has declared a specific Bible the official state Bible. Which is different then declaring. The Bible the official state book because to me. That crosses over there at the idea of separation of church and state. Now the official state Bible in Alabama. I still think that's a waste of time legislation but the year the official state Bible is the Bible that we used to swear in Jefferson Davis as the presidency as a president of the confederacy of states. In 1861. On Mississippi had his. Designated an official state -- The Teddy -- Louisiana has an official state musical instrument which is a cajun accordion. Now you do realize that all of these things are. Really a waste of the time of the to legislators. But as we have said so many times local legislators this time of year when -- -- legislative sessions here and around the country. They quite often they quite often proposed. Legislation that is designed to get their name. In front of the public -- is decide to do things that appear. To be making changes when a reality don't make any changes at all. And -- if if if this does get to the full legislature and the the Bible is to cleared the official state book of Louisiana. That's gonna cost the taxpayers of this state. Money because it's gonna end up in court and it's not going to accomplish anything. If you think I'm wrong and you -- give -- your opinion about what you think. Designating the Bible as the state book will do to improve this state if you think this is worthwhile legislature are I'd I'd love to hear your explanation. Our numbers 2601870.

And what our American values three politicians and radio talk show host around the country and citizens all used the term American values to define their character. But yet most of the people. Who espouse. The term American values in describing their character. Fitted to a a stereotypical group. If you don't -- that stereotypical group. Can you honestly say you have American values -- that's coming up a rebel tastes -- bill chased James joined to be WL. Did you. Quite a comic. Situation. -- -- -- -- Our energies and don't make one more -- -- -- or on the situation. You know James I I I found out a little bit about that over the weekend I -- -- -- weekend and I'm not is up to date on that is I'd like to be a good perhaps get into that tomorrow. But he it's it's individuals vs the -- the government. And it's a really interesting. Symbolic debate is simple yeah battle and -- who I hope to talk about them the show tomorrow night. I woke him up then. Well I'll are. You know. Are at -- A lot of people. Out. In -- bit. In such a rash proportionate amount go over well over. You know only in to send me a color should not -- out and registration. Is a gun ban. And New York has R&R or. Four -- -- -- that -- -- Orchard take on the current -- Interstates. And that. Two million gun -- after the government. Ought billions or. All you know regional Homeland Security. On -- -- honestly I think it's hysteria. And -- and paranoia. I agree with you let you know today and -- and it's certainly should think that maybe this is made because. All. You rationally. -- that the world why we get to go away because you know and passionate. -- the -- and it politics. And as political as we think the Supreme Court is. For the most part over over history it is historically been void of of of politics although -- and realize that that's kind of naive statement. Supreme Court which never uphold this there. There there is an incentive in people. By instilling fear in people about how the government's gonna take away your guns. And even with the assault weapons ban that was in effect for ten years and I believe that -- -- wrong I think he went out to. It -- it was void in 2009. And there were no attempts to get everybody's guns and I just don't I don't see that happening I think there's always hysteria on both sides of of the shooting. There are those who say well everybody needs to be armed and and there are those who say we need stricter gun control laws. I don't see how either one of those is a rational solution to the problem. Which is the result of people who are maniacal. And there will unfortunately be. Those who copy. Crimes. Because they want that notoriety or fame as as. As bizarre as that seems to rational thinking people like myself and and you. There are people who vicariously become famous. As a result of committing one of these acts even if they take themselves out in the in the end. Right. One. -- war on -- -- -- I think though. Not -- still. Very gears talk show post -- You know after the government are only around it so. It -- concern me because. Or or -- history where well there beyond Chinese or or. Or Germany. You know. -- lap or so. -- act on the -- does worry me. I like Eric -- I don't get -- here a lot about any. But in -- personally. I'm not saying it and stay and I. It alien and our nation and literally Chicago and etiquette or I. Firstly check our. And -- about it or you a lot of Jewish talk about it in an optional though. You know it could be on my view and whatnot but at least -- you or call and have a. All right James I appreciate you listening to WWL and I going to call our show. I don't think there's going to be a civilian ban on guns there is hysteria on on both sides of that issue which we've talked about quite often on the show and I won't be surprised if there's more hysteria resulting from the shooting and Judy can -- Jewish community center. It Kansas on the eve of passover. It's officially been classified as a hate crime sky opened fire with a shotgun and pistol killing three people as far as I know none of them were Jewish. This is that hates it stems from ignorance. You know I really would love to know what the average -- -- try and not dot being elitist here. I'd love to know with the average IQ is of a white supremacist in America. I'd love to know with the average IQ -- And I wonder if it's even in triple digits. So there is hysteria on both sides of the the issue I -- hope I didn't insult and he's a white supremacist but you should be a white supremacist in the in the first place. This this idea that there's going to be a ban on guns based on what happened in China the former Yugoslavia and in Germany. While Germany was it was a different forcible all of those countries are different from the United States. And and we are far from perfect but we're not prone to the same kind of of of gun laws and rules. That occurred in those countries. In Germany. Under Hitler that's totally different from the United States during World War II China. Is there is a Communist nation never have a free market society but it's still a Communist nation and the former Yugoslavia was. Was. What was I believe that was part of the eastern European Communist -- -- one point. And that was basically am a civil war did it went on. And those countries. Are different from the United States I just don't see any -- Coming. And deer are those who love to spread this fear. To advance. The agenda. Not the least of which. Whether it's actively or passively. The NRA. And all the -- and panel manufacturers. They love this debate. They love instilling fear in people beat you were going to have your guns taken away.

Here's an update on -- WW project of people tonight do you think there are signs at the end of the world is coming soon 61% say no and 39%. Say yes. Here's a text as stupid neo Nazi when he Kansas. Acted out on the myth of white supremacy. Far too many whites still passively support dismissed and thus help to perpetrate. Agreed. Here's a text I love. These value people the problem is they don't have any they all think that they're perfect. I guess -- They art. So. Do you have American values. Politicians in radio talk show host and even citizens use the term. American values. To. Define their character. Last week there were two stories in the news that said on the issue of values in America and I wondered if many of the people who either used the term or supported the term. American values. If they actually understood what American values means. The announcement that Stephen cold there of the Kobe report from Comedy Central would replace David Letterman when he retires next year to instant criticism from radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. On his radio show Limbaugh said no longer is comedy going to be a Covert assault on traditional American values conservatism. A few days before the announcement that cold -- would replace Letterman fox news's Bill O'Reilly said to Stephen -- -- was leading the destruction of America. Which seem to imply that cold -- represented an attack on American values. The other news story that raised the issue of American values was when Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal. And Roger -- the chairman of do we see a Republican Party call for the resignation of representative Vance McAllister a Republican from north Louisiana. This was following the release of the video showing the married congressman. Making out with a married congressional -- McAllister ran his political campaign. Based on his set of values Christian values family values which he promised to bring into office with him. Maybe he forgot. So exactly what our American values. Do people who use the term to get elected or to promote themselves as a virtuous. Do they really understand what is meant by American values. We hear the term we say we accept it without defining what it means. Limbaugh related American values to conservatism. Our American values. Conservative. Would that mean that those who define themselves as liberal or independent do not have American values. Our American values based on specific political or religious. Beliefs and ideology. They're also seems to be tendency to -- American values with Christian beliefs along with conservative ideology. And politicians like -- McAllister. Newt Gingrich there among the politicians to promote patriotism and their Christian values. In a way to suggest that date of the politicians who can most be trusted to uphold these American values while serving in office. Now the stereotype and not everybody's gonna agree with this not -- not everybody's gonna wanna -- The stereotype. That is most likely to promote the idea of American values. Seems to be an individual who is white. Married with a family. Conservative Christian. Who lives in the suburbs. So -- to suggest that a Democrat who we single and a Catholic who lives in urban setting. Does not have American values. -- realistic Catholics or Christians by. The -- many describe themselves as Christians their separate from Catholics. A basketball and other religions that are not considered to be Bible based religions even though they're all still Christians. But attempts to exclude those outside of the group of white married Christian conservatives. From the suburbs or rural area believing in American values is -- -- ignorant and very judgmental. Our American values. Reserved for white married conservative Christians. Who live in the suburbs or in rural America. I'm white I'm single. I am not a staunch conservative. I do not fit the profile that many right wing Christians believe you must fit in order to call yourself a Christian. And yet I'm proud to say that by beliefs lead me to describe myself as a Christian. I also live downtown and I rent an apartment and don't own a home. Are individuals like me. Exempt from having American values. I thought about this. And I think I actually represented American values. I work hard. I've worked for opportunities. And can't think of much that I'd been given in my life for career without hard work and commitment. I believe that life is not always fair. And when you have setbacks you must accept the setbacks and work to overcome them. America doesn't guarantee -- or success but America does guarantee only opportunity. I believe -- family. I deleted parents raising their children. And forcing them to understand through discipline the difference between right and wrong and that there are consequences for negative behavior. I believe in freedom. And not just the freedom that I enjoy. But the freedom that others that I don't agree with or others that I don't like -- -- I believe -- equality. Not just for me. But also when it comes to those that don't share my specific beliefs or ancestry. I believe in equality for them as well. Otherwise it would be hypocrite. I believe in equality even for those were different from me. I believe in freedom of religion not just the religion I believe it. I believe the idea that the American dream is not the same for everybody. And nobody should it sets an example of what you think the American dream should be you figured out for yourself. In my mind right now I'm living. My American dream I'm living. -- of course we all would like. Different things but in my mind I'm living the American dream but yet I'd I am single and I live downtown and I don't own a home. But to me this is the American dream. I strongly believe in personal accountability. As a crucial concept. To any civilized society. And I believe in America is a welcoming nation and that we should all be tolerant. And celebrate. Our diversity. So to I have American values. I think I do. Do you have American values even though you don't fit into the specific category. In many Americans think you must fit into in order to say or claim you have American values. If the term American values is gonna be used to political campaigns. And be used to define individuals politically and socially. Then it is imperative. For everybody to use the term American values with an understanding. Of what it means. -- blog tonight is titled.
