Bob continues to disciss: best rock conerts and rights of smokers to work.
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?

Oh really bullets and it marked a pretty. Well. -- -- April. It would have been much. Would have been on goodness involve them. Really appreciate you calling Kevin I'd go thank you so -- -- go to Gregory Greg Greg how are you tonight. Would. Agree what about beauty you get that yet. Obviously the most -- And ever our follow -- treatment and I don't know the wrote down a little -- Spain Spain. -- but don't -- think the stones the greatest rock -- great. Don't you use I've heard that expression -- Holland the world did that experts are. No but I mean hotter the expression long in the tooth -- started means and noble. Yeah but how about you your -- you know UT they'll grow past certain -- They come from an old. When you dependent on your on. When your livestock or news or you you'll Citic I know how long -- charger or edict to check their piece. I didn't know that so that you can you can. If until the age by the bug -- of their teeth and -- I've learned something tonight ninety Gregory I learned. You -- com. Is the most they've been urging the -- -- that I ever saw any lies. Mark felt here in normal -- election you aware that it did it was a talking. 880. Indeed it's a fantastic of course I was only 1920 years opened a team meeting yet they can and and epic played -- like the area where it was just incredible but -- similar degree in a car it's true. Journey to -- them. And the auditorium used to have great. Yes I saw -- Cooper. Should be part tedium. Do you had to welcome them. And mentioning yeah it's a very young -- out of one per concert apparent but because Google with global product. I would discriminate frequent the most and -- -- -- -- out entered the -- republic portal. At. Greg let me ask you on I'm on the other subject that we've been talking about tonight it started when while hospital in Maryland so they're gonna stop hiring people who smoked. Should you be able. To deny a person the right to work. Just because they smoke -- -- spoke dean is legal and I can see where you tell them at the house but you can't smoke at the hospital. He can have it on your clothes but I mean. It is that. Is that they -- a thing that we don't wanna get into telling people what. They can and cannot do that legal in this country what happens if we tell people. OK you can't work here if if you drink alcohol. Well you just -- it upon its legal. Should be at the ball. Anybody right for a trapped -- off 500. Employees. However a -- you suspect they -- and it could be a problem in. That pulled a category in the commute is he on you lemonade she read it smoking it's such a detriment to your truck performance. Insurer did different things that alcohol. What -- they hit here here's here's what I find amazing. A lot of this comes from of course the insurance companies because the insurance companies. Will give you a better insurance rate if you don't have smokers can I can understand that but the thing the thing that drives me. Up the wall and has for years and upset -- so many times on the year smoking. Is a legal product. This government says. This is gonna kill you. We're going to charge you higher rates if you smoke because you're going to get cancer and -- if it's gonna lead to an early death and all these other diseases. Yet we sell and you know why we Charlotte. Because we make so much tax money on because but doesn't government uses the taxes on that the finance the government. So if we are really that stroll that we really feel that this is an evil it kills people coming. I wonder how many countries have a product where they say you can buy this legally but it's gonna kill yeah. You know well. I don't -- booked every country in the world that's then -- like. I don't know if -- what here's what I don't know and and if you know tell me. In other countries do the the the cigarettes carry the warning that it's gonna kill you or that's only in this country. Actually acting. I can tell you from my own experience especially during the eighties in most and -- -- out of feet. The cigarette packs beat you bought. On ship we're not attack. They didn't oh in -- warning we epic could we were maybe -- church but when you win a short and bought a local brand yeah killer. Don't know warning direct part in you -- smoking -- We -- like sky. Pretty well -- And there was -- -- Outlook occurred it would work cigarettes that. Think what they built that big black market of the problem. But I don't think -- only other countries. Put the warning labels don't go well that's that's the point I'm saying in this clip. I think Great Britain does it out. I've purchased -- in Great Britain. Via petition general. Recommend -- -- Multiple -- -- Very little. -- legal but it is indeed achieve your your performance like quite quickly that. -- makes you take too many breaks in that means you're not being. But then but then what should have to do is you'd have to say that we will higher -- smoker. But you do not get Rex if you get caught smoking anywhere near the high level or hospital grounds anywhere near you fired immediately. Don't let it did not write an -- yeah. Both jobs will do that I mean but it. A lot of people that I work where smokers and equipment and take a break and and you know. And com. -- I don't know he shouldn't be far -- -- -- -- but -- -- in. But -- does it get it to work actually. I mean you being like -- you know believe the. All right Gregory thank you so much George you're up next do we have room for probably a couple more -- it and it's right on. 2601878668890. It's suddenly I'm Bob Mitchell. In bestowed on WW well. Well here's a text message. That says Led Zeppelin is the best Bob even better in the -- And -- about that Bob Mitchell and -- -- in your list into the big -- seventy WW LA and a -- and dot com. Here's a text message Bob talking about -- -- which it made me do I'm gonna talk Obama. Right now let's go to Georgia George are you tonight. George you liked do you do much late night -- Do about it. A group you know. I got that haven't -- humble group. And I like it or -- mine. Yet vocal. Coca-Cola a doctorate in legal George. Quote but George why do you put the blue bell in the bowl. Just heated up the box. Well. -- ready to me you know you get. About it too much we gave me on it. But what you do you have your own box and you need a little bit each night that's why do I I well I will get -- cut way back because. I've mentioned as I was out of hand years ago when when I did this show on a regular bases. I would go through. A half for a gallon of blue bell every other night. I would I'd just what I would even put it in the bowl so. I'm I'm I'm a got to back off from a blue -- that did you ever have any of these commercials -- you -- like the like the Taco Bell and a and the pop flies commercial that never motivate you'd actually leave the house and go get some -- either at night. Are you -- are today. Watched duties all right so let's talk about let's talk about concerts. Concert. Like have seen so many. Kimmel live -- -- -- would go to the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville and changed zone. Pushing the Bruins. Had a Mississippi Gulf Coast does you those are two problems. It took control. I was never I was never big structural -- clinic again committee I think the greatest. Rock and roll concert -- that that that I've ever seen. Had to be bestows and I liked the Eagles but for pure rock and roll. But I don't think anybody beats stones. The other soldier maybe even older than think. Generally even older now. Well you guys total which usually terrible or they're older than to let. And they were good judicial many. But. Moody Blues. Moody Blues were to George what do you think about. These companies that are starting to take the position here's a hospital in that says that. They won't hire smokers and other wars I don't care how qualified you are. For the job -- is not a matter of smoking on the job. This is not a matter of smoking on your break this is a matter of you will not even if you smoke in other words that they they give you a test to give your urine test. In -- team shows up in your urine they won't even higher -- even interviews if you're out. Yeah I'm -- answer that but that the reason that follows. A wanted to tell you -- did you -- -- yes -- -- Me neither I live dumping Trout intercity. And we had a million per concert tickets I got to take years. Two days before the show. It's note and -- we're. Well well well well. And it's terrible. Yes and have not answer your question. It's a very slippery slope -- -- people are going now it is there's like you said what's next. You drink -- and do it but the main thing I was thinking about Lola. Obesity. Look at all problem obesity -- So. Utterly personal losses and you're gonna say no we don't hire you because you're. Treasury this year. -- listen listen on this text message here Tony Gwynn got cancer from musing -- Yet the government says nothing about -- I were people who -- while in a reactive with patients so. Is this hospital gonna say okay you you can't use dip and a big dip. Is just as disgusting as smoking may be even more I hate when you're talking -- -- dip and they -- are spreading in a cup alt on the talk to you. Ali it. They end -- hospital interacting with patients. Well on on this thing but I meant in general in all I know a couple of guys. That dip and UB sitting there talking to them and at that they'd spit in the cup or spit in a bottle wallet while they're talking -- -- -- grosses me out. You wanna -- so really this doesn't -- about you know I used to work construction cute look houses. And the guys would be up there on the law not because the pieces Mormon and at home to home yeah. They -- out there and do and and -- down onto good. Don't I put my hand in one day and residences. That the next time I put my and then it what are you -- on and off the wall. But -- so. All right George I appreciate your joining an okay. Oh all right thank you so if you're gonna go to Lilly and industrial and then noticed until probably beat. Columbia are left call the night you wanted to explain a little bit more about the expression. A long in the tooth tooth is that it Lillian doctor said. Yes that's says basically. You're content to recede so it just appears that the internal locker. I didn't know that -- so that's what that mean this -- right now. All right did you you wanna answer our question of concerts. I thought Elton John and Berlin in 1990 -- In Berlin now -- I've often wondered when they when they perform a concert like that. Today singing in German -- they sing in English. Well I mean don't people in maybe I'm wrong but I thought people in Germany spoke German. This is the thing. We're pretty much the only country did speak one language -- and over the years speaks English. Well. -- -- At at at that I have a right denied. All right Lola take break and we will come. Right back I'll I'll finish up with a couple of -- text messages and I have my usual. Before ago something -- Alitalia vote. I'm Bob Mitchell -- good show when WWL. Year I really hope you've enjoyed the show I'm Bob Mitchell interest do tonight. I'll -- -- a couple of touch motions -- to have little extra time here. I smoked but I can't stand being around other smokers I don't smoke in my house I hate the smell of stale smoke and especially I can't stand. People to smoke while I eat. Best concert was Molly hatchet. And evergreen Alabama and a bar I can't even remember than a public consort. I wish I would -- seen. Aziz the top never got the c.'s easy to easily top. Was really really -- so you you did -- good concert. And I've got my mind nightly. Text message from saint Bernard parish Bob. When you don't talk about how wonderful shape and -- parishes.
