Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy said that Republicans candidates should not use the new investigation into what happened in Benghazi to raise money for their campaigns…but the National Republican Congressional Committee already sent out fundraising email’s linked to the new investigation. Do you think its okay for them to use this to raise funds or not? The teenage pregnancy rate is down, so are the teen birth and abortion rates…so what does that tell us?
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?

I haven't heard about any trend of not dating it's the same old same old of the girls being too picky or crazier when ever. And they didn't work out as a couple ha ha if any thing I've noticed a lot of teens dating walk for longer periods like a year or so. I'm sure they're the classic people using each other for sex but that's the other thing. Like you said they're practicing smarter personally I don't agree with premarital sex. And here is. Text that reads -- people in my class -- a all I don't wanna date but they quickly changed their mind to win a hot girl shows interest in them. They say so. Because they don't wanna get hurt like all I don't want to anyway. That's. Its interest. And I can see that is a great defense mechanism you know you saline yeah I don't wanna date if your behavior on dating somebody. Because of right person doesn't realize what you and he just simply say -- on I -- date. I guess that's away -- of not being hurt. You know I I think at that age first of all especially at that age but really all through life you know women are smarter than he -- so many -- And especially. In eighteen years.

I would I would be getting calls from people to see I told you it's it's a lack of Christian values it's it's that the liberal administration. I I know we've been hearing all of those things. But yet there's no real explanation for. A drop. In teen pregnancy rate. And initially people -- well the teen pregnancy rate is down because abortions are. Well tactically. The abortion rate wouldn't have anything to do with the teen pregnancy rate revealing -- something to do with the teen birth rate. Which is also -- I've got a couple of text from people who suggested that it's it's the morning after pill. Well that's a good thing -- -- it. Because the morning after pill contrary to what many people. Have leads you to believe. The morning after pill does not cause an abortion. It's -- fertilization. That's what I've read. About the morning after pills so it's not. It's not an abortion -- that's part of the hysteria. Of the pro life groups that want them. Created hysterical. Debate about all that. But the teen pregnancy rate is down birth weight is down and the teen abortion rate is down. So maybe Miley Cyrus and maybe pop culture entertainment and may -- politics today he really can't be blamed for. For an increase in. Reckless teen behavior now again this doesn't mean fewer teens are having sex. But if they're gonna have sex. Is -- a positive thing. That there are fewer teen pregnancies. -- And abortions.

Here's a text a student -- you know join you tonight sold jet is playing at the tap room in Covington Saturday may 24. And today you've got to get to our show guest of honor this is ban on the nor sure a soldier please him. Well a lot of the bumper music that we play going in another breaks they're a cover band but they play a lot of the newer stuff like. Unpaid buying steel. -- dragons -- play a lot of the newer stuff and I would love to see themselves maybe you can make that guys thanks for room thanks to stay in touch with -- The problem with some gun rights advocates. Is there Modi to carry guns is more about flaunting their Second Amendment right. Than it is about safety. There's a senate -- Louisiana legislature that would permit. Legislators to carry guns anywhere peace officers carry guns including parades. Polling places. And most public buildings that deal has advanced. Procrastinator Brett. A line. Says that lawmakers should have extended gun privileges. However Brady a lot of with gun rights across America says. By sitting here and saying that you all are more important than the people you've represented. Is hypocrisy. Since there doesn't seem to be a legitimate reason for legislators to carry guns in places where citizens. Are prohibited from carrying -- The only conclusion I can come to is that this senate deal is another desperate attempt to flaunt. God's. And to -- the Second Amendment. Rather than. Use the rights under the Second Amendment to protect yourself and defend yourself. That's the intent of the Second Amendment not to want -- But again this feeds into all of this hysteria. About the gun debate. Legislators are citizens. From businesses that from neighborhoods across the state and I don't know of any evidence. That indicates that legislators. Face specific threats that you and I don't face on a daily basis. So let's call it like it is a law permitting legislators to carry guns in places that average citizens cannot carry guns is another example of gun rights advocates. On wild. At least in the legislature. Now the battle on both sides of the gun rights issue in America. Has become hysterical. One site promotes the ridiculous idea that if guns were illegal and if we banned guns they would be less crime. That's absurd. The other side argues that if everyone was all armed discussion would be a safer place both sides are absolutely wrong. Rather than supporting a deal that would extend gun rights for legislators. Wouldn't it be more rational and logical. To support conscientious gun ownership. There have been too many incidents in the news recently that if proof that not everybody should don't ago. And yet. There aren't those gun rights advocates who honestly believe the more guns in society is a simple answer. To less crime in America. From my position is a radio talk show host I. I realize that promoting gun rights or stricter gun control law issue being the extreme. On either side of that debate. That's easy way to get people excited. But that's the mentality of a lot of radio talk show -- across the country just get people excited to be -- extremists. In the same way there should be logical and rational. Talked about guns in America. But that logical and rational approach. Isn't something that you often hear on talk radio. It's easy to support. And promote divisive sides of the debate. It takes more effort. On the part of those listening -- to and talk show host to try to understand the logical rational grounds. For hotly debated issue. And there's growing evidence that America is changing and those who have used hysteria to attract attention. The beginning to fade. The flame of the extreme one sided rhetoric in this country political and social issues. It's it's burning out. The truth is that there are two sides of the gun control debate in America strict gun control over those who were allowed to buy -- -- guns in America is important. And criminals might think twice about approaching people if they knew that everybody who was a potential victim was -- But neither approach is the answer to America's crime problem. Both sides of the gun debate are quick to label and condemn anybody. Who doesn't buy into they -- extreme rhetoric. Those who strongly support extending gun rights and gun ownership. See more likely to react though. To any infringement on the Second Amendment. If I say for example. Everybody should not own -- gun. They're people who think that that automatically means I don't support the Second Amendment which is absurd. It's simplistic thinking it's it's it's easy to come to that conclusion. It's illogical but it's but it's easy. I I also support a background check for people purchase a gun. That doesn't mean I don't support the Second Amendment but some people should not. Own a gun. It does amenable -- keep guns out of the hands of of criminals. But just it's it's it's interesting that bidders. There's a group of people that is really quick to criticize. Anybody who suggest anything other than everybody owning a gun and everybody having a guy with -- wherever -- ago. I support the Second Amendment and yet there are people who would criticize me for not supporting the Second Amendment. And this is part of the problem with the political debate that we have in this country right now. You're not gonna keep guns out of the hands of of criminals or -- responsible citizens. But maybe background check would help. At least help in that area. I believe that the notion that everybody should be aren't that carry gun everywhere I think this is a paranoid right wing extremist position. For from those people who believe the government is is working to put the United States under the control of the United Nations. The best way to bring a logical and rational tone back to the political debate in America is far more logical and rational citizens to engage in the debate. And denounced the hysteria. Often spread through social media and it leads to total paranoia. But a deal. In -- Louisiana legislature. Extending the rights. Of of -- that the gun rights. Of lawmakers. I think this exposes this senseless hysteria over the of the gun debate in America. And you know I can't help but think that since our state legislators seem to have a difficult time passing sensible legislation how many of them could even pass a background check.

Also tonight we were talking about a Republican congressman trig counties said the Republican candidates. Should not use the new investigation. Into what happened in and -- to raise money for their campaigns. And I would agree with that. However the national Republican but the National Republican Congressional Committee has already sent out a fund raising email that links. Information to the new the new investigation -- been -- Now there are those who say that the Republican Party and Fox News. Are focusing on Ben Ghazi. Focusing on the IRS. They're resurrecting these issues. Because the attacks against Obama care. Didn't work. And the success of obamacare defies. The predictions. That many Republicans had about. Obamacare and I realize that that is and will continue to be a controversial issue. But the truth is that a lot of the criticism of Obama care has not proven to be true. Now if the Republicans. And Fox News. Continue to put so much emphasis on Ben Ghazi. Not that that's an important. -- knowing what really happened is important. But if nothing new comes from this. If there's nothing -- that and and there are even Republicans. Who are against this new surge of investigations into Ben -- If the Republicans are wrong about this if they don't find anything. If it doesn't amount to anything. This is -- This is gonna tarnish their image it's it's gonna make it seem as if everything is here but everything on both sides. Is political. No doubt about it. Instead of being against things. The Republican Party needs to start standing -- things. Any impression is that it's a party that's more against things then therefore think they'd Michelle Bachmann. Is is opposed to a new bill. The debts. Calls for. Are privately funded. Women's. History national museum to be built on the National Mall in Washington. As she supposed to it because she and some of her conservative colleagues. Are concerned that a national women's museum will focus too much on radical feminism. And vets. Is going to honor. People like Margaret Sanger. Who set up the first birth control clinic. And we've talked about this on the showed that it was a time when birth control. Birth control pills were against the law it was a crime. To sell birth control pills the Supreme Court had to compensate. -- Supreme Court. It's their opinion that birth control pills. Buying selling birth to that's that's right to privacy. And I would think that if if if people are gonna have sex -- the -- -- wives that people would be more promiscuous if they didn't care if they didn't have to worry about pregnancy birth control pills were part of this. On this. Moral majority this moral right. Mentality. Trying to discourage people from being promiscuous -- nobody should encourage promiscuity. But it's already there. And I can't help but think about it. All the men and women in the adults that have benefited. From the birth control -- not just to prevent pregnancies but also to. But to regulate and -- to make news cycles more. More tolerable for for some people I'm not a doctor so I don't know specifics of that but I know a lot of people. Use birth control still do for for that purpose. But if you recognize somebody who set up the first birth control clinic. I don't know that that is a reason to denounce. A national. Women's museum. In Washington DC. Of course you're going to have to. Mention people who we're part of milestones. In. That history of of of women and it took. It took strong. Feminist activist. To fight for a woman's right to vote. And to fight for equality. And if you wanna say it's part of a radical feminist movement to two and still say today. That. I'm fighting for equal pay for women is that some kind of a radical. Feminist movement then I guess I'm I'm part of it I don't understand why a YE women should be paid exactly the same as -- man for the same job that they do from Indiana rich your WWL. I didn't -- to other Republicans and -- currency. Important can't figure out if it's. What currently investigating if they wondered why it happened. -- great -- they. Two witnesses. That date. Call to -- that standard every community after community. Odd that you -- chairman of the joint chiefs. Were -- Retired admiral -- And he current chairman of the joint chiefs. And they laid out exactly what US military. Get on that day. So if there's nothing news this is not going to be good for the Republicans if they find something. If they find something new that's different what I've read is that there is nothing new but that may be because that's what's being put out. Well what aired our differences. Are all about eight. Although about different -- show me what it without the move he should get wiped -- planned to attack I mean really. Who care I don't care about somebody I don't care about -- okay.
