Who is ultimately responsible for all the crmes being committed?
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.

On the -- the website Huffington Post dot com. The headline read. Boehner. -- -- But the article was about John Boehner speaker of the house saying I'm not qualified to debate the science over climate change. And the headline was Boehner plays down. And I thought that was just total liberal bias. Because I I respected him for saying that as so often the the politicians act like they know things and they really don't. And there are a lot of people who are not qualified. To debate the science over climate change I I certainly know that. And I'm not. And I'd still have questions about how real it is I mean I see the -- I don't have questions about how real is as much as I still have questions about. How much man has contributed.

That they did not beat President Obama in the reelection campaign. In 2012. Stunned. Especially Fox News absolutely were actually start. But then when it was over there were some Republican leaders who were saying what I was saying about the Republican Party before the election. And among those was a Bobby Jindal or governor -- that we got to stop being the stupid party. But now that he's positioning himself. To be a presidential candidate. He might really be positioning itself for vice presidential. Selection. But in this in this process. It doesn't seem like he's.

Because it does take a village to raise a child because we were held accountable. By our neighbors parents we were an end and our neighbors -- which -- over to our parents we were held accountable by the entire village. Right. We -- you know and -- -- you now reject. Well no that's not true and and we are you know we need to set the record straight goodness it is legal to spank your children. You can't beat jackets. But he it is legal to spank your children.

Says you can't spank me I'll call the police. That teenager got to that point without respecting you and that's how that teenager got to that point.

Well you know we used to hang out at the ball I mean I remember when I was Syria -- a young -- would get on the bus and go from my neighborhood in -- and we did go hang out at lakeside. But but when kids hang out at the mall today. It doesn't turn out to be such a good singing. Right. And -- Who doesn't -- -- ago. -- I think that you know. You know. Well how it down you know -- yeah. I Charlie let's start talking about this what do kids do today a political show Charlie thanks for listening you have a great weekend so what do kids do today. Do you have teenagers. You have kids and what would they do. -- go outside and play when my son's grown sole hi this is not something that I deal with that my son was an avid says and it's skate boarder. And was always out on his bike to and screen stuff on his bike or skateboarding and then we lived in areas where he could snowboard we were snowboarding. What is it that you do with your kids are what are you what can your kids do. And here's something else its interest -- talked about. We can kits -- -- out. Your place for its economy reachable except. It was almost like. A done deal you had a date you into the movie. You -- to like -- And you made out. Well if young people are making out in their bedrooms. In homes where there's no parental guidance. Then wouldn't that. Almost invite them to do more than just make out. And I know that there were I know that there were people who did more than just make out at the -- I wasn't one of them I just made out at the Lakefront. But if if if kids were in a place like that I'm not saying they should be but this is just something that's changed. We're kids we're -- kids go express their. Their love for each other I don't mean in terms of sex but in terms of again just making. And the -- -- that was one car after another to lake front and then you can go watch the point. And and part they're. It was brutal during the summertime because Steve is we get in your car and you you know do you quiet with your date and you this'll -- -- And it landed and you got smacked.

Preteens in -- we planned out what what do kids do today. And -- teenagers make out.

And thank you very much for hosting the show but I gentle -- that her mother Donna. Is conservative. But steel. Once the show so I just once every am pretty happy good evening to John I hear us a -- -- the problem is the Liberal Party will not hold anyone accountable. If kids are truant take away their entitlements if parents or kids are convicted of a crime take away their entitlements. If they fall if they fail a drug test take away their entitlements we need to hold people accountable. I agree. And we don't hold people accountable at every level of society. Not just those who have a certain entitlements. Here's a text about. About a village raising a child and and I I I do know that a lot of people reacted very adversely wouldn't when Hillary said that because it seemed like she was suggesting that the government raise your children that's the way the right wanted to paint it. And this is not because I'm a Hillary fan. Because -- I'm not a Hillary fan and now -- -- -- talked about being a big Hillary fan on the show. But which he which you wrote the book it takes a village just to get groceries child. Because in the neighborhood you were in even if your parents were the year you were still held accountable for your actions. Here's a text that addresses this when I was young growing up. A neighbor could spank you. And you hope your parents didn't find out. Not because they would sue the neighbor like now the because your parents would -- you again. Here is a text I would I will be thirty in July and growing up in river ridge that was my -- to get home and I'd better. I'd be walking in the door and get ready for bed when the lights came on.

Toll free 8668890. Point 78 tech's number is 87870. I here's attacks that half the problem is I it's. Too easy to run as a liberal. Their entire platform. Is a scare tactic. Stating if you vote for a Republican. All your freedoms will be taken away. I -- I disagree with that because I think one of the tactics the Wright uses is if the left its elected your rights are gonna be taken away. In particular a lot of people like to invoke this idea that your Second Amendment Rights will be taken away. Top Republican leaders are in New Orleans attending the Republican leadership conference of Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal. Who is positioning himself to run for the White House in 2016 or at least it appears that. -- he was a speaker last night. The information the Republican Party needs. Two in the White House in 2016 is in the -- blog which is on our website at W appealed to outcome it's simply titled a message to the Republican Party. The last couple of weeks. I've written several blogs about the Republican Party. And during the presidential campaign 2012. I was talking about mistakes the Republican Party was making -- they were. And forming the image for for Mitt Romney. Which was a different image from who Mitt Romney really is as a as a person and who he was as governor of Massachusetts. Sold. It's interesting that that after the election there had been prominent Republicans who -- said when I was saying before the election. But they don't seem to stick with it it always kind of goes back. That's the way it to the way it once a wrote a blog last week titled another new direction for Republicans. And it focused on the newly released 121 page policy manifesto written by a group described as reform Republicans. And it establishes a new direction for the Republican Party in hopes of attracting more middle class voters. In January. I wrote a blog for a website which which titled should the Republican Party change. And that dealt with the Republican National Committee winter meeting in Washington DC where new strategy titled growth and opportunity project which revealed the Republicans. That's strategy was designed to expand the party's reach to include more women. Minorities gays and younger voters so this war that continues within the Republican Party. It doesn't seem to be easy and the Tea Party in the ultra -- are two groups trying to fight for control of the party. The Tea Party which originally -- for smaller government and fiscal responsibility. Has been hijacked by a white wing extremist like Glenn Beck to a broad social issues into the Tea Party agenda. Which as far as I know is not the original agenda of the Tea Party. Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh Sean Hannity and the countless local conservative personalities. That have you know very sheepish manner followed their lead. Continued to cause an axis of voters from the Republican Party even the power of the Fox News Channel has been challenged. The newest ratings show that Fox News -- a new low point in the ratings in over twelve years in the key -- five to 54 demographic. Now Fox News still dominates. MSNBC. And CNN in a key demo and in in in total audience. MSNBC now is number two -- and is number three. But if if Fox News has. Let's say between a million million enhance. I think around a million and half as what they're they're a total daily viewer she appears. In the category -- key category of 25 to 54. Fox News only shows 267000. In that key category. So. What the ratings Telus is that the Fox News audience is 55 and older. And polls continue to show the younger voters even younger Republicans. Under 45 do not support. The same opinions that many in the conservative Republican ranks have on same sex marriage and legalizing pot and immigration. America's changing. And today's baby boomers stab Richmond which is to find every area hit is occupied. Is losing some ground to younger generations. Younger generations don't share the same same views -- the establishment conservatives do when many of these social issues. And and yet the Republican Party continues to use these issues. To to continue to. Percent this image of we must beat the moral police. For America it's up to the Republican Party to be the moral police. And this is alienating a lot of voters. Supporting. A government ban on same sex marriage for example I think defies the foundation of conservative ideology. Which promotes the power of the individual over government. There's no way to escape the fact. That opposition to same sex marriage is based on moral and religious beliefs. Therefore directly endorse his government. Dictating morality. The initial government support additional a conservative support. But people like and Clive and Bundy then Nevada rancher in the dispute with the government over his scandal raising on government property. The -- the way unity conservative right has. -- fallen in love with conservative rocker Ted Nugent who has expressed hateful ugly contempt for the president not criticism of policies. But just hateful ugly contempt. Now both of these people had been denounced by conservatives after they went too far but the the instinct to embrace. These extremists. Have hurt the image of the Republican Party the parties also been damaged by the birthers. The -- -- and now those who were following the conservative pied piper Karl Rove who is now questioning the stability of Hillary Clinton's brain. Republicans have turned condemning President Obama into a spectator sport. And the focus on condemning the Obama administration I think is distracting from the core Republican issues of fiscal responsibility. -- smaller government. That's what the Republican Party should be promoting and that is the direction that will attract younger voters right now. Republicans were factually wrong about people signing up for obamacare. And I don't know where the -- -- in the -- scandal investigations -- ago but so far these have not been found to be the scandals that. Fox News and others are still trying to make them up to date may be there will be something we'll bring down the Obama administration. But rather than just trying to take younger competition. -- it better to try to present an image of what you will do. What you stand for not what you're against but what you stand for what you will do. I do realize. That it's the Electoral College. -- terms as president. But there's something very significant about the Republican Party losing the popular vote in five out of the last six presidential elections. And in January Gallup poll showed the Republican party's favorability rating. Had fallen to 32%. Down from 43%. After the election of Obama in 2012. And candidates like Rick Santorum. Sarah Palin Michelle Bachmann they openly suggested that their specific religious beliefs will be part of their campaigns and part of their brain in office. That hurts the Republican Party. America's been down this road before. During the presidential campaign in 1960 John F. Kennedy a Catholic. Active on the campaign trail convince voters that he would not. Allow his religious beliefs to dictate the decisions that he made as president. Kennedy won the election and became the first Catholic to occupy the White House lesson learned apparently not. The message of the Republican Party is simple. Be bold enough to divorce the far right. And have the courage to be more centrist and promotes smaller government and government getting out of the way of business. And individuals. And stop trying to beat the moral police of America. It's not gonna work in the world we live in today. One definition defines conservative as holding two traditional attitudes values. And cautious about change organization typically in relation to politics or religion. As long as the Republican Party rejects the changing America. The influence of voters that are not older white males. Make it difficult for the Republicans to win the White House. There's a great line and on a whole notes on what to their very early hits. And a line is. The strong. Give up and move all in the week. Give up and stay. Soul. Clinging to being the moral police of America. It's time to give that up and move on. A message to the Republican Party scoop like -- it's on our website at WWL dot com read it shared huge -- feel like. We'll be right back with more your comments on -- -- you well.
