A conservative pundit and author Ann Coulter. She said her syndicated column published right for the US played Germany yesterday of World Cup. She said that did the growing interest in soccer is a sign of the moral decay of America. And soccer's bad because. Of liberal soccer moms liking it. She said that no American whose great great grandfather was born here is watching soccer there are no heroes no losers no accountability and no child's fragile self esteem. Is bruised and Coulter has said outrageous things before one thing that she said that wrote about it talked about this too chilly night. Why is after the date the government shut down the partial government shut down over the attempt to defund obamacare. And Coulter said that any Republican. -- disagreed with that effort. Should become a Democrat. Which -- I totally disagree with the -- so what you can have some disagreement with your own party. I would hope that if you're Republican or Democrat their times you disagree with your party. In effect maybe that's one of the few forms of bipartisanship we have today. People actually disagreeing with aspects of their own party. Also we've been talking about this ruling in New York City Court of Appeals that -- large sugary drinks.

Things surreal about Sydney giving -- tickets to Crosby, Stills and Nash at the -- theater is the fact that it to beaver production. Barry left on fox I mean these guys are still doing a great job and he started out doing stuff at the warehouse. And they still have a very successful promotion company that is -- across the country I mean they they do big concerts across the country. But the fact it's a VP for production is something else and I also remember from my past. The -- blog today is titled Minnesota band ruling a victory for personal accountability and that's on our website at WWL. Dot com would also be talking about something that. But Ann Coulter says the conservative pundit. She says that the growing popularity of soccer is a sign of the decline of them the moral decline in America. Here's a -- -- let me say that I am a minister and I've been -- minister for ten years I'm 31 years old Ann Coulter does not speak for conservatives she is a joke. As far as the moral decay of America. It is impossible to put it under one cause there are innumerable lists of causes. For our societies decay. And I agree with that here's a -- I'm 52 years old. I went to Jefferson Parish public schools and I do not remember ever being led in prayer by a school teacher. Lots of prayers at home but not at school. Do you -- into this idea that it was the removal of prayer. From public schools that is is that the moment that America started to go to the -- There were so many other things that were happening at that the time that it has become. I think an urban myth. That it's -- it's which when we remove prayer from public schools and you know we Jewish human beings we like to find the simplest solution to a problem. If we just put prayer back in public schools it's not that he's. The problem is much. Has much deeper roots in American society. It would wouldn't it be great if we just said a prayer in public schools and that would turn this country around. But that's not gonna do. And this came up it's not only part of the discussion what Ann Coulter said about the moral decay in America. But also about the that the ban on on big sugary soda drinks -- victory for personal accountability. That's when this country took a wrong turn it wasn't one moment but over time. Though the lack of respect we have today. For personal accountability. Whether it's bartenders and servers being held accountable if somebody gets to -- Everybody should be vigilant and not serve somebody if they're if they're drunk. But -- and your responsibility for going into the bar and he even if you're not in net a state of mind to make the right decision. To blame somebody else I think it's just part of this lack of respect we have for personal responsibility. If you wanna join Russia with a comment on numbers 2601870. Toll free 86688.

Let's talk about just a few of the things that we're going on in this country. At the time prayer was removed from public schools because I think people wanna wanna look at this one flash point in time this is the one thing that did it. Take prayer out of schools that's what the country started to go to help. Really. I've gotten a number of Texas morning David Grohl Foo Fighters. Would be legends in the future and I would agree Tony years from now I'll be giving away tickets to the Foo Fighters it is so thinking -- I its -- of Tommy Tucker we're coming right back with more of your comments on to VW else.

How much you all might be -- What. Should. America -- I appreciate your call and thanks for sharing this from a perspective of somebody who grew up and socialist Communist environment. The US Supreme Court ruled that the government endorsed prayers in public schools was unconstitutional it was June 25. 1962. The ruling was 621. And to this day either people -- that was the moment America started to. Make a turn for the worst that's the reason Americans -- and that's what we need to bring back prayer in public schools. It was a lot going on in America at the time. In the 1960s. Segregation was a major issue the Cold War between the United States and leave the old Soviet Union was. Which was always on our minds in school we were having drills to do certain things he's learned what to do if there was a nuclear bomb to drop in your city. If Food and Drug Administration had approved the birth control pill was a form of -- oral contraception and that was seen as something that was going to create it morality in America because it removes the fear pregnancy from. The act of sex. John F. Kennedy became the youngest president 43 and the first Catholic president. In 1960 I guess to actively 1961 when he was sworn into office. In America is going to a lot of significant changes prior to banning prayer in public schools and yet. It's just such a convenient flash point in time for so many people to point to say that's when it happened. But yet this country was going through a lot of changes at the time. And what are the biggest things that has resulted today. Is a lack of respect for personal accountability. I'm -- in forward Tommy Tucker here's a text that reads. I totally agree with you about the moral. Dick case starts with politicians. And news outlets are president. And is. A charlatan well we can say that about a lot of different presidents and that's not a defense of President Obama that's simply stating a fact. Here's a Texan res Q could you put out a list say top to encourage bans -- thinker great blogger email -- 57. And still stuck in the seventies and eighties. Love them but needs to get on to some new stuff I do that now. When I get -- the year. On the a list of the top ten bands and former I think a very talented to have the the possibility that the possible talent. To go on and become legends for young generation today. And we'll put that on our -- radio FaceBook page. It's 8519 minutes until 9 o'clock if you -- not in the rain could -- -- will be at some point today and if you're driving turned the lights on here's into the WW traffic updates. With Gerald Robinson. I bet this is not one of my favorite songs by -- dragons but this is talented young man that I think has the ability to potentially see. A legendary band in the future. And twenty years from now I'll still be on the radio giving away tickets for a young generation that is so once again grownup is going to the imagine drag his concert. A twenty years from now. We were talking about that all morning and here's an update on our Debbie did you a pretty -- opinion poll do you think there any current bans are performers that will become legends. 58%. Say no. 42%. Say yes. We've also been talking about something it is outrageous that and Coulter said the conservative pundit. She said that the popularity of soccer the growing interest in soccer in America. Is a sign of the moral decay of this country. David you're now under BW on good morning. Yes like to say something about the moral decay of society. They're a lot of people out there that. Placed there subjective views on the world. A blow the views of everyone counts now the book if he Bruce Chapter Eleven or one defines it as. The substance during for evidence of things and saying. Now if you -- say as the Bible. You have to you have to allow for other people's interpretation of -- to assist in the world. You can't legislate for sports you're used on other people and expect them. Two. Dwelling growth within our. -- apple world away in Syria and Iraq. There are Islam extremists that are killing their their their Brothers their robbers -- -- -- their country meant. But the slight difference in their interpretation -- the -- and you -- talk about moral decay look at the chaos they have over there and tell me are we better all works and. David Everglades draw the show here's attacks the read so moral decay. We slaughtered Indians. Had slavery and segregation. We've actually improved our morality. But yet it's very common today. To. Say that this country is going down to drink it's it's a fear tactic is designed to instill fear in Americans that only. This politician or this political ideology. Is the right answer. When in reality I think so much comes back to our personal responsibility. We're gonna continue this conversation coming up in the next hour but also -- as something of the conversation do you remember summertime when you were a kid but when you got to school three months of doing nothing. But kids don't really have it today do today is a new study that says it may be children need more unscheduled unsupervised time during the summertime. We'll talk about that coming up I'm -- for Tommy Tucker and here's the news went -- to --
