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.

It's a Friday night -- we are heading into the weekend together this weekend is now among other things says there's that big care crawfish cook off the saint Charles parish crawfish cook off. There is the creole tomato festival at the French market this week and it's going to be more today was really warm and very very muggy but hey it's. It's a time of year it's June the sixth. Today I'm sure you've seen this on the news is the seventieth anniversary of the rotation of American forces and a -- in the Normandy beaches and it's just. It's just impossible. To try to understand what that was like. And I was really interested in in in hearing some of the vets who where there who have now gone back to Normandy to. I don't wanna -- celebrate but to commemorate. This -- seventieth anniversary. It was so interesting to just hear him talk and try to think. What it. Try to think what they weren't what they were thinking. Being there and having gone through that. If you went through something like that. To go back and visit that that same spot -- that just has to via a very surreal moment. -- so we've been talking about a World War II ended the -- on the show -- also we're talking about a draft for the Texas Republican party's new platform. It includes support of gay conversion therapy some believe that homosexuals can be turned into heterosexuals. And I say that's possible then why could you turn a straight person -- And how would you do that what would the well with the straits conversion therapy. Be like. There are -- a health organizations. That believe that two gay conversion therapies ship is is very dangerous and is separated and damages individuals who are. Who're -- going through this this this therapy infect New Jersey California have actually passed laws that day and gay conversion therapy. Also we're talking about. The man who organized. Who's been organized the the French Quarter minutemen. That's a group of our citizens who we're gonna volunteer escort French Quarter workers to their cars and their destinations downtown. He's been arrested on a -- -- for stalking. I'm not here to bash him about that but this does support a concern that are brought up when I was -- Garland show. I believe it was Wednesday. Talked about this at -- in the show. And I said I'm just I'm concerned about. Some of the people who might want to do tennis a concerned about the type of person that might want to volunteer to do that because everybody who owns a gun is not a good person. Everybody who owns a gun and wants to. What's to have a recent everybody who wants to have a reason to carry that that you need to have a -- But they're people who want to have a reason to carry -- to use their guard. And I'm concerned about. The mentality of some of those people because it is true. That not every gun owners responsible the overwhelming majority of gun owners are. But there are gun owners who. Don't know guns -- the right reason. And they want to show off their guns like the gun activist who walked into family restaurants and with their guns out on the table at a at a family restaurant. Mean that's not necessary. So why not be concerned about those people who might migrate. To this job of walking people. Late at night early in the morning. We get beat the other thing that has come upon a showed ideas would these same people be willing to do it if they didn't have a gun. And I guess the the argument be well. It's made of a gun that they would feel safe bowl sometimes there's there's safety in in numbers. I wonder if these very same people. I wonder if they would be. Willing to go help if they. Couldn't carry -- -- Or if the gun makes it fun but I guess that's the point that I'm I'm trying to make. They're people who would find it fun. Because they get to camp they're gone without. I'm going to be for protection. And as I said countless times I support the Second Amendment. But that doesn't mean I support every gun -- because there are some gun owners that are responsible. And anybody should be able to make that observation. Without fear that your -- bashing the Second Amendment if you wanna join a show with your -- tonight are numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890870.

I think it shows a lack of concern bind the merchandisers. Player. Down in the French Quarter for their employees. End and I can't understand what such -- police force. Out anybody should have to go to their car. Well I don't let's say their last personnel. Whether you're you know you're you're collapsed cook -- in use. Cleaned the kitchen and everything I don't understand how that happens but I will say this. What is very troubling is that the -- situation. Just seemed like a prelude to -- for another actual work Zimmerman situation. Well I think there's a possibility and that's why I've had concerns about it from the very beginning not the concept -- saved by it. Who would be attracted to do with it. Well and and here is that hurting let's let let let's just beyond there are very responsible gun owners all across this nation. -- and am not saying that the minuteman effort is not. An effort to make the area better. But I honestly. Believe that there are more police and security guards because a lot of security guards are. Police -- police who were former police and it had. More extensive. Arch -- -- as far as how to handle situations. And I just don't you should put just any body out there to do this now that they -- to. And these people are well qualified in the police -- dead at them and have sit and. -- You know. This person got its head on initial order. Yeah I agree and and and and that was you know that was my point and there were some people who were critical of me saying I'm against the Second Amendment because I'm I'm I'm questioning. Who some of the people might be it would be part of it Chris I gotta get to breakdance thanks for listening in Memphis. The concept that the French Quarter amid a man is fine.

So I mentioned earlier that the the Kobe a report a Comedy Central did the best job of all the networks Fox News MSNBC. CNN ABC CBS and the -- report on Comedy Central did the best job of explaining campaign finance to people. And I know that's appalling and shocking to a lot of people and you may think it's a sign of the into the world coming. But he does an honest assessment of the nature news channels especially the cable news channels. -- of their. They've almost become -- a satire of themselves. This study was conducted by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and and it shows that the Kobe report and also the The Daily Show by Jon Stewart both a Comedy Central have consistently been gaining ground. When it comes to younger audience -- when I say younger. Market -- under forty. They consistently. In the source of information for a younger generations. And while there's comedy involved in it. Comedy is always based on reality. Comedy -- on on facts on real situations. And the reason it's funny is because out of that real situation there's a great exaggeration but something. Or something bizarre happened something out of the ordinary happens which makes. It believable situation so unbelievable. Therefore it's comedy. But see the cold -- and Jon Stewart. Present the top stories of the day with qualified guests often politicians sometimes celebrity's. And they discussed the top news it's it's threatening. -- -- Stewart used humor and sarcasm in reference. While delivering legitimate news stories they make fun of the right they make fun of the last thing -- laughed there's no question about that but they also make fun of the laughed. And I'd like to think that anybody can laugh it. And anything. And not take it too seriously. But what it comes to these these these news stories. Kobe -- Stewart really do delivered the news at even though there's comedy involved they are taking time to explain stories in the reaching an awful lot of people. When you consider that the narrow perspective. It's presented by Fox News and MSNBC particular. Along with the bitter verbal battles that often erupt on the stats when they're discussing something. It really should be surprised that younger generations are tuning into the cold -- report The Daily Show for their source of news. America is changing. And it changes not easily accepted by today's establishment. Fox News and MSNBC of again as I said have almost become satires of themselves and meet with their -- -- heated debate on Fox News in particular. Mute the sound. And just watch it it's comical. And sarcasm is a way of of making a point. The cold air report The Daily Show. They stand out because of the harsh partisan bickering. On the other cable news channels. It's turned honest political debate almost in the comedy. Alicia one of those cities so immersed. In in that side of the debate. In spite of the referenced it really defined Stephen Colbert Jon Stewart -- both give us the news. And they really do delve deeply into meaningful discussions about the top stories of the day. You know their attitudes. With their humor to -- are no less distracting to the news content. In the pompous self righteous attitudes. Of the host on on Fox News and MSNBC. And -- their report in The Daily Show or not responsible for dumbing down America. Both shows present. Our view. I guess the growing disgust. Of the political battlefield. On on fox and MSNBC. -- -- Stewart are not changing America. But they're reflecting. The changing America. Now this does it mean that the news is gonna one day of fall into a comedy shows. But -- vehicle there Jon Stewart I think our reaction to what many Americans now think about the cable news channels. This country is changing. And fox news's ratings. While they dominate. The cable news channels. I think they have I think it in a month they have -- a million and a half viewers I I may be a little off -- somewhere around a million and -- viewers. But only 267000. Are between 25 and 54. And since teenagers are tuning -- that means that the vast majority. Is over 55. Voters under 45 are beginning to have an impact on the political process. Democrats and Republicans. And all the cable networks. Need to recognize that. America is changing. If you wanna join our show with your -- tonight -- numbers 2601870. Toll free 86688907. At Texas breeze 87870. Here's a quick update on our WWL pretty general opinion poll tonight it's it's close it's sort out very lopsided tonight. The question is should the city of Portland Oregon. Allow the world naked bike ride attempt to happen again this year it takes place tomorrow Portland. Even though many residents don't want to take place. 55% say yes it's 45% say no give shipping by going to W -- to account this is a huge event they're expecting 8000 naked bike riders. And I got a text earlier for somebody said. Well how assist not against decency laws. I don't know I believe I I don't know. But literally the big concern is because. I'm not in favor a public nudity. That's not what I'm saying. But is this is grown into this massive massive. Event every summer. That's a lot. What's it gonna do. They're not hurting anybody. And and and it was or president of Portland who has. According to an article saying that this is a horrible thing what if kids see what if kids see it. We certainly it's it's. It's funny it's not sexual. I didn't seeded Portland or participate. But there were a couple of times and I was in Denver and on the weekend I. -- witnessed the the naked bike riders and there was a big group I don't know Tony thirty people who would -- on weekends they would just go somewhere around Denver. And ride their bikes naked down the street. It's pretty funny. I mean it seems really uncomfortable doesn't doesn't look like you would be that comfortable especially for for guys. -- -- Mean what's what harm is it -- really do mean I think sometimes we become so puritanical and our views that. We freak out over something we shouldn't freak out over. And again I don't support. Public nudity. But if this is an event kind of like I guess more to draw mean things happen during -- draw that. You know don't happen all the time. Mission we've -- those things. Man know technically it's against the law to expose sex organs in in public. But you know I get a -- has become such an event will they don't look at it and if you happen to see it so what what's it gonna do. And seriously. What if a kid sees it. I'm sure the first thing that they would do is laugh. Because it's really funny. And since there are so many many many people. You know sometimes -- in accidents. And people fall naked. And that's really funny. I'm -- if you -- that comets and our numbers 2601870. Sold 3668890. Point 78. It takes a -- 7870. This week go on and are going to show -- filling in Ohio talking about this really really bizarre story. -- these -- 212 year old girls who lured another twelve year old girl into the woods and -- after nineteen times. They were trying to get the attention of the demonic mythical creature. Being slender man. On a web site. We'll talk about that we come back on -- -- This is such a bizarre creepy story that develop this week. But it actually have that mean you think that it was like action like horror story. According to a police complaints. Criminal complaint. This is in them. -- Waukesha. Await Wisconsin. 212 year old girls. -- their twelve year old friend into the woods. And standard nineteen times. And they did it to please -- demonic mythical creature. On a website. Named slender man. The -- discovered disarmament slender man is this demonic like a creature on the website creepy pasta. I believe it's creepy pasta and Wiki dot com. It's a website for creepy horror stories creepy Lincoln's. And the 212 year old girls were trying to become proxies. Slander me. Which requires killing somebody you wanna get with a slender man you wanna be was slender man you gonna get its attention you kill somebody. That's the theory of the web site. Slender man lives in a match in the woods. And they wanted to actually be part of slender man's world. In order to do that they had to kill some. So they planned this out there were sent a slumber party with three girls. And and they've lowered their friend into the woods. And -- nineteen times. She lift. Bleeding she crawled out of the woods and a passing bicycle -- -- -- -- one. She was taken at a hospital where she's recovering from NASA stab wounds. And a twelve year old who was stabbed immediately identified the 212 year old suspects. And they were arrested and charged with first degree attempted homicide. They face up to sixty years in prison if convicted. Since the 212 -- girls. Are being charged as adults and I agree with that not everybody will agree at least cause of twelve years old. But -- are being charged as adults -- names have been released they are twelve year old Morgan geyser and twelve year old on. -- -- -- -- And the name of their friend has been withheld because. She's twelve and her name wasn't released she's in the she's in the hospital. A police asked a Morgan geyser wife she stabbed her friend and according to the report she told police I may as will tell yet. -- That was the reason the center. Police reports say that both of the girls. -- have talked to them about the stabbing in their goal of pleasing slender man. They were to go live with him at his mansion in the forest. -- bizarre story. And I know that they are or are people who were gonna wanna blame the web site. The website presents this character. That tells you that you must -- in order to become part of his world. But can you ever blame. The website. Can you ever blame a writer. For. The actions of an audience. Can you ever blame entertainment and that's something that has become very popular in America. Blaming songs blaming. Video games blaming movies for for things that people do. And I think there's something really disturbing about blaming entertainment. Because it really should always come back to personal account a bill that. It doesn't matter what you're exposed to. You're responsible for your behavior. And it's become. It's become almost. A recreational sport. To blame. Negative behavior something in the media. It's I I think it's a convenient scapegoat. And for those who who won -- denounce slender man I have to tell you federal memory of its legitimate but there's really something wrong with these girls. Or twelve years so. And they -- a girl nineteen times. They were hoping she would die. And -- but for it for for these 212 year old girls. To feel like it was actually possible to become part of this fantasy world of slender man. On a website. And they think about it they killed this girl in real life. Because in their minds they were gonna become part of this this fantasy world of slender. It's really have that -- creepy figure that's seeing pictures of it. But there's something wrong with these girls. And the web sites not to blame. It's easy to blame the website for a lot of people. But you can't blame -- website you can't -- the book I don't think you can blame the movie of the -- music for negative behavior. And -- whenever this topic comes up by I think it's fair to point out that the entertainment we choose. Reflects -- moved. And if if somebody is focusing on a certain type of entertainment. That might reflect a certain type of mood in them. Then I think it's important to to look at that as the symptom of the problem the the entertainment is it might be the symptom of something going on. But I don't think it's really the problem. If you and -- light on numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. Point seven -- Amber's late 7870. So will will California chrome the Triple Crown winner I have a feeling this horse is gonna do it but. It hasn't happened in a long time the Belmont is this weekend and have a special drink now -- day Kentucky Derby has its mutual ups. And I believe the the preakness has its. Black -- Susan. Like I Susie or something like that. Well now that the Belmont tonight has its its own -- talk about that from me come back on WL. There's a chance for history to be made this weekend has it happened and now long time to Belmont Stakes is an opportunity for the source California chrome to become another Triple Crown winner. It's been a long time since since that happened. The the the other legs of the Triple Crown the Kentucky Derby and the preakness that they have special drinks at the Kentucky Derby it's the Mitchell. At the preakness it's the black guys Susan all now the final leg of the Triple Crown has its own drink and -- I believe this is something it's it's brand new this year. It's called the bill month Jules. And it was really developed specifically because of this Triple Crown a possibility. You know I have a feeling this horse is gonna is gonna do it. But it's if it's that these are three completely different races and I'm not an expert on one horse racing. But dean of the Kentucky Derby is a certain -- the preakness is a little shorter and Belmont is the longest ball. So it's a horse that has to you know win the Kentucky Derby. Then has to win the sprint of the preakness. And that has to win the longer race. Of the Belmont Stakes. So it truly is. A great test. Of horse's ability.
