A Federal jury decided Applebee’s restaurant in New Mexico did not break any laws when it served a man whose drunk-driving crash killed 2 young women. Should bars and restaurants be held responsible if someone gets drunk in their business then leaves and gets in an accident?
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?

By the Los Angeles Clippers are playing Golden State -- Golden State this is game six in their playoff series. The clippers won the other night at home in Los Angeles Clippers lead the series three -- so the clippers beat the warriors tonight. They win. The playoff series with the lawyers and don't move on in the playoffs -- will give you an update on that to a game suits are going on tonight also joint we're talking about. We're talking about in the nanny state here in America. And I think you would die. Maybe not you specifically -- me specifically. But UN I have created this nanny state. We've allowed it to happen we've we've tolerated. And I think part of of the the mentality of the nanny state. Has supported this idea. That. If a bartender. -- a business. Bar restaurant. Serve somebody so much they get drunk and get an action on the way home. That the establishment is responsible. Should that be the case. And next. As far as I know that's the law. But should that be the law. Isn't that creating the nanny state is in that part of it. You're asking bartenders and waiters and waitresses. And businesses to be our guardians when we go -- A morally and ethically. Of course if somebody is is obviously drunk they shouldn't be served. Put to put that legal responsibility. On a business. Or a surfer. I think is wrong because see it's it's circumstance personal responsibility. The ultimate responsibility is a horse. And where dissident. You know that the focus is on. Driving home. Well what happens if somebody gets too drunk at a place and goes home in beats his wife beats his kids. -- falls down the stairs. But he also go and and blame the bar for that is well. -- blog tonight is -- is about how we can do something about the nanny state but we have to recognize that we're part of it. It's titled we must stop the nanny state mentality. And that's on our web site right down WWL dot com you can read it shared a common aren't you like it says Debbie if you don't council support of our. FaceBook conversation at WWL radio a -- we've also been talking about. You know it's an interesting question should governor Bobby Jindal sign a bill that would prohibit. Speech cameras on interstates in Louisiana. And you oppose the speed their cameras because they're a money grab or do you oppose them because. Well it's gonna make it more difficult for you to speak. Here's a -- -- the only reason a speeders say that slower drivers are more dangerous is because the speeders. Can't stop in time. Consider breaking the law. Now this idea that they're slower drivers are more dangerous than speeders it means your debt may be a lot of truth to that. But it's still a justification for speed. And -- the speed limit is 65 nights a medical earlier said. That. They shouldn't have to drive the speed limit because it's too slow. Well then. Maybe find a way to try to change the law. But that the law is is. The laws there and aren't you supposed to follow the law offer battery Brian your WWL. Dispute about the nanny they only give my occasional why I don't think -- and and I think that being read and if you. Political correctness brigade and you have the perpetually offended. And people create shots. Artists such a large portion of the voting bloc that day and -- -- EC. Complex problems. -- -- -- -- to -- -- apologetic about it you have to look at it rationally and optically. And meet people it's a little bit that maybe it doesn't agree with that there world view. -- -- -- And it and it says it's not a problem I mean if it's great inhibitor of ideas when you have the professional and it and political correctness brigade. You know I don't know five. I mean I guess I can understand -- and direct connection between political correctness and the nanny state when it comes to things like well. Obesity is such a problem so we're gonna limit the number of sixty no -- she device sugary drinks or corporate or things like that. I just I think it's wrong for honest to put so much emphasis on others watching us as opposed to us being held accountable for our actions. -- it and we try to beyond apologetic. Compound in -- -- get caught people you know -- that got people order. -- problem they get it in ago quietly. That there I do know that there is a problem with calling people out on things and and discuss -- something we've talked about concerning a cigarette -- -- later. If if I saw somebody throw a cigarette out on the ground and I said something to them about doing that. I'm sure they would become very defensive. And may be sort of verbal confrontation with me and yet they should not have what what are what are they defending. Their defense -- themselves littering. Well I mean luckily caught people I don't mean doing and a very nightmare and I don't mean you know being. Being you know -- about it. -- -- -- -- It's it's weird situation. You know maybe -- maybe not pulled away. At work in Utah and picking up a little bit. It caught it. In the. Brian I'm glad you told Michelle that that's. I guess that's something that -- Really encourages. Lazy America you know real people don't wanna be. I called out whether it's of littering throwing a cigarette on the ground and that's something else related to our conversation tonight. Because it looks like there's going to be a new law that increases the penalty dramatically there for throwing a cigarette butt out of a car window. I'd like to think that that would account. Would apply to any later that -- of a car -- not just. A cigarette -- but we're also talking about that tonight by the way when we go to this next break in just a minute. I did this earlier shall I wanna do it again last night I saw video. Somebody singing somewhere over the rainbow. Title of the song that maybe goes back to my childhood but the song it gives me chills. I was stolen. That this particular person it's such a phenomenal job singing somewhere over the rainbow. I don't wanna share that with you we're gonna play part of it going into the break -- and after the break I'll tell you who it is and you might be able to guess who it is -- for Texas -- on this cute show on WWL. If you want good. I got two point person multiple partner and of course at all. A -- to me it boils down deep personal responsibility take personal responsibility. -- your own actions and when somebody says. Maybe eight bartender or server should be held responsible to -- it simply. My program because every time somebody is there drunken driving -- Lost it -- individual would be here and there's partner there's observer there's the bar there's the owner of the park. And it becomes completely and utterly will be about the -- it's not personal responsibility to. Good example the temple. Or -- -- -- -- action until bleacher days that bartender should be held responsible for how much and of course drains. -- you know he's simply. Serving him be eating in the -- An hour and -- I'd go to a lot of places that are very very crowded and sometimes. It's somebody gets somebody else or drinkable. What is the bartender doesn't actually seat the person who's getting that one drink that pushes them over the limit there's still going to be held accountable it just it just doesn't make sense to me. Lock it and say I want those shots you need like that -- is coming in all but -- -- walked out. The configurable in the park and are accountable for an action that you get beat -- And I pay into that people mind that -- night appointment don't take personal responsibility. For your match. You. I'm gonna try and that's beating the there's there's some reasons why I don't I don't like the idea of campus. And personally. -- its -- animation -- economy but that the the first and foremost in mind that. My son who went through liver transplant I had the rushed into hospital. -- can't get there have been a camera. Taking a picture of me and it would not have understood the reason why I was rushing to a hospital. And hear about it at great personal judgment you'd like to -- this speeding ticket in part ordered it to port in supporting him. They help time I'm Mike Dayton. The circumstances accept the big time can be in the fact my son. At pebble liver transplant I. I know a -- at that time I looked into it yet. There's people thought -- -- circumstance all the time or cure it I don't know what can you pass somebody you're going to be useful to speed up the good -- And now if you if you if you were speeding though when you taking your son of the hospital and you could have been pulled over by police officer and I'm sure he would have what you go. I'm better -- taken time that that moment I understand that the time issue but I would think that. If you showed if you -- you would have paperwork if you took your son of the hospital and you could show that the paperwork coincided with when you got the ticket and I'm sure you would not be penalized. Correct now however I'd I'm injured and fondly upon they have -- very few accidents. The boats are built or I like. But the -- that people don't owners ambulances does that mean Germany. People know how to drive perhaps on intangible -- access -- -- and thirty miles an hour. And here are talk and one person you're talking. I mean hundreds of people that are going on bond and what it comes down to it did it when they cite safety it's not true. It is simply and only in an -- -- to try and get money. Because. For the money it would take them like -- to make it legislation says it's at the state the issue at a stubborn -- -- And signed they can't have a transmitter that would just that governor -- To keep each -- that. -- -- In in in a place like Germany you know I've never been their bit and plays a Germany where there's the -- and in places like that where. There's an unlimited speed limit or not many but that's a very well known place. You know people grow up and today's larger drives and they are their condition just for that. I'd like to think that Americans could be disciplined enough to have that kind of situation but I'm not really sure. -- as a nation. We would be as organized. And is responsible if we had that kind of -- open highway. I think I would I would I would I would tend to agree with it. But they would have to start somewhere in the. And -- also bring up an interesting point about the studies that shielded. Speed contributes to accidents. You know that even goes for situations like. If it's if the speed limit 65. And it's raining. And somebody's going 55. Speed may have contributed to the accident because it was raining so speed goes down as a statistical reason. For the accident but in reality he wasn't somebody even going over the speed when he was driving too fast in that particular. Place. -- weather conditions were not right for even driving discreetly. OK you add up to speed limit was 65 and an injury. Or let's -- -- site itself. In check it. Somebody comes from the art moves down to sort Louisiana Mississippi. And I'll be able to do. But -- collect accurately and as. Soon as the convictions. And that person out. Well I might that I guess that the point is that prize. I do you couldn't have those restrictions on the cameras -- I wouldn't think you mean I guess technically naked and weather conditions into. -- into it but everybody would need to know what the speed limit would be I think that would get complicated. It's like we should not going over the speed limit it's really up to the individual. -- and your own personal responsibility drive the speed that you should be driving based on the conditions. So I think -- all purpose behind having an officer pull you over for speeding just understanding and -- them. That would justify what Egyptian he's beating her uptight I understand that some people don't think there's a reason to be beating but. If you had brought down the pharmacy again. You know medication for your daughter who had a deeper. They would let you go to camp out. Yeah I do understand that that police officers do allow the human.

I agree with you -- and morally ethically yes if if somebody sees somebody is just way too intoxicated then then. Don't server many walker don't cut him off I agree with that but to hold them legally responsible I think is is wrong. And -- light and support this federal jury in New Mexico but said that Applebee's. The restaurant in Santa Fe. Was not responsible because cigar guy drunken -- killed two young women on the way home and this is not support of drinking and driving at all and some people will misconstrue dissent.

As soon as he saw not say this -- the right thing from to do but as soon as he saw that I was visiting and rent a car. He said okay we're just just just drive carefully he did not give me a ticket. And I always wondered if he didn't give me a ticket because he didn't want. Me as a visitor to have that memory of being annoyed. I think it would be a good idea produced troopers. That you adhesion. Like in Washington County what -- watched in a Louisiana you know launch site or non in all the little. Places they've really noticed that people with ticket cheap jokes and. Where you really where you really have to be careful is when you're going from. Say a four lane divided highway into a city and it merges into a two lane highway through the city.

House lawmakers in Washington voted to deny themselves the cost of living perished. This is for the the the six consecutive time they've done this six years in a row they have voted not to give themselves the cost of living pay race. So that frees his congressional salaries and 174000. Dollars a year. And I haven't had a pay raise since 2009. And I guess they want us to. Consider them just be reputable people because they didn't give themselves are kind of interesting that you -- a position to give yourself a raise it in the first place.

That would prohibit -- cameras on interstates in Louisiana and do you agree with the federal jury in New Mexico that's at Applebee's is not responsible. Because they served a guy who got drunk.

And when we are busy I maybe have five to ten seconds to take a break. -- before I have to move on to the next person waiting to order a drink I can't keep our records. Of who drinks a lot and how often and how drunk they are. It is their responsibility to make the decision to get behind the wheel of the car intoxicated. If they wanna be stupid and responsible. And they alone should suffer the consequences. And I agree with. And that in no way is my support of drinking and driving or -- supporter of getting dropped that you you can get -- as long as you're not. Creating a problem were getting behind the wheel of -- cars go to -- a few moments ago. There's nothing illegal about getting drunk if you do it in a responsible manner and I do understand. That people who -- truck. At some point are not capable of making the right decisions. But to put that legally. On a business. To put that legally on bartenders and servers. To me. Enhances this mentality. Of a nanny state. And -- Cisco blog tonight we must stop the nanny state mentality and I say we use that program on purpose that we need to stop this meant in any state mentality. And there are some times when we actually supported. And we don't realize we're supporting it.
