The National Geographic Channel recently ran a special, “The ’90s: The Last Greatest Decade.” In your opinion what was the last great decade 50’s, 60’, 70’s 80’s? What were some of the great moments of that decade for you?
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?

That was ever recorded was recorded in the sixties for that reason alone I would have to say the sixties. Was the great a decade and here's a text message. Did you just say the sixties was the last great a decade. Let's that he -- assassination. The Cold War the Vietnam War civil rights unrest. The missile crisis a return Betsy and Camille the Weather Underground white flight. To name a few things. Well you know yeah you're right all of all of that did happen in the sixties but those of us.

The JFK it was assessment -- -- he did give the country to have totally incredible hope and they -- have the country believing and you know as not want. Your country can do for US what you can do for you country. -- -- you know the -- the race against the Russians and felt that we were better than rush report felt that you know week we have a great country at that time.
