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?

All right she joked about it afterwards saying that she wasn't speeding. She was qualify. That's NASCAR reference that obviously appeals to her base. Sarah Palin also. Said that her choice of music which which part of what encouraged her to go 63 -- a 45 mile an hour zone. What was -- listening to her she was listening to I can't drive 55. By Sammy Hagar. You know I guess -- just needed to go faster. And even 55 due to a 63 to 45 she's got to take care that tickets are -- going to be fine she's not try to get out of it. But she did to joke afterwards about nationalism speech and she was qualified. Did you ever talk your way out of the tickets. What -- you stated to talk your way out of the ticket. And is it true and a source of your police officer is this true mean Europe to give you name rank. -- you'd like that but is it true that attractive women. Get out of more traffic tickets. That ugly guys. Did you ever talk your way out of a ticket and also what song and I want to be very careful. -- drive fast not that you should.

A vice principal at a middle school in that Irish. Has been arrested for exchanging naked pictures with a fifteen year old student from the school. Why. Two people to witness. We get the full story on our website at WW real dot com. He spent rouge. Parish sheriff's office say that 42 year old Edwin -- standing of baker Louisiana was arrested and charged with computer -- its solicitation. A reminder. He's the vice principal. A salvage middle school in Baton Rouge. And a fifteen year old victim. Which at the school. Now. What part of this seemed like it might be a good idea. What you -- students. You know men and women are different. And guys think that if they like to see certain things that it's automatic it would like to see certain things that I don't think that's I don't think that's necessarily true. But I find it interesting that there are so many people who are concerned about a gay teacher in the classroom. And here's a spot apparently a straight guy who was a bigger threat to your your kids. Then. A gay person. And so it's one of the reasons why you know judgment of gays in schools and teaching and administrative positions I think -- It's just totally -- Number six on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. I love any excuse to play this -- you know that's. During the first six months of legalize recreational marijuana. Seattle's police were more likely to rest. And -- homeless people and African Americans -- -- -- news. -- Washington State his legalize recreational use of plot but as far as I know they have until legalize smoking pot in public office. -- but if this analysis is actually to benefit really does show with its Seattle police are more likely to arrest homeless people or African Americans. And my god if you're almost African American and you would -- -- public you can you can get a ticket that really is it's -- unfair. And there shouldn't be that kind of prejudice when it comes to. Smoking pot. Any -- for that matter. Number five on tonight's list of the top eight. At eight. Senator Ted Cruz is questioning whether President Obama used the FAA. A government agency. To impose sanctions on Israel -- all US flights were stopped by the FAA flying into the -- current airport in agility. Do you think the FAA's ban on flights into Tel Aviv. Was politically motivated. What do you think it was about safety. I guess this is what. If you Ted -- like I guess this is what you do. Mean if you're Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi this is what you do to the right you use look for excuses to to criticize. Or which is something that we played often talk about. How common is it for. For -- to be criticism rather than. Even the idea that parties want -- actually worked together to get things done for America. But senator Ted Cruz who you know a lot of people talking about him as a possible presidential candidate I think he's -- it too far right did not moderate enough to to win but. That doesn't mean that there are a lot of people who believe that this country needs a very strong conservative president. But differ -- -- to question president Obama's use of the FAA. To oppose this this economic boycott on Israel. -- using the FAA I think this is I think it's wrong I mean I think this is really about. About safety. And think what the criticism would be if god forbid a plane flew into Tel Aviv and was. Hit by a rocket. And I saw on the news I saw how closely their rocket Wallace from fire from Hamas how close it was to the airport and utilities. And it was close enough for me if I would have been in a position I mean the politics aside. Now I think this is about safety. If you would join us tonight about anything we're talking about our numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. -- seventy. And a text numbers 877.

This director for in New York Daily News in Iowa Bob Eshleman. Has been fired. Andy claims that it's a violation of his religious right is believes freedom. He says that he wrote what some consider to be homophobic blog and news newspaper. And he actually -- -- person abroad he wrote but since he senator for a newspaper the company that owns a newspaper said that the newspaper's reputation was damaged. Isolating is is a Christian. And he's suing the newspaper for firing him and this really once again brings up the question about if religious freedom. In the workplace. Protects anti gay beliefs. -- it does stand does it protect supported his law support of of Satan. -- what tonight is our website at WW dot com and I believe they agree or disagree completed this year with others -- blog tonight -- -- anti gay rhetoric. And freedom of religion. Because this seems to be the new battleground UC freedom of religion to -- discriminate I don't think there's any question. That the constitution. Technically. Does guarantee somebody the right. To make any kind of anti gay comments and kind of anti Islamic. By any pro Satan comments that they they wanna make. -- the constitution does protect that. But as our society continues to evolve and this is in the way it's been from the beginning of our society. There are things that were were acceptable the past that are no longer acceptable today. And if you do something outside of work. And it reflects. In a negative way in the company you work for. There's a possibility going to be fired.

Will you go on vacation so people don't really take vacations. Do you -- 01 long vacation like a week or 240. -- a series of extended weekends. Experts encourage Americans to take a real vacation. Rather than extended weekends and say that it actually adds to productivity. We've got to an article on our website summer's almost over. That's kind of depressing.

For us to trust in it except for maybe capturing. You know bin Laden and using drones but that's about it. And and you think that a president of the United States words. Forward to put political motivation. About safety or use a call for safety as a political motivation to disguise. Some kind of an economic sanction because that there's so many flights -- US carriers fly in and out of Tel Aviv that and and I find no mistake Intel these biggest industries is -- So this does hurt them economically.

It usually do it in Korea and India to do. Do. -- -- Hey. Correct what he didn't. It. Off. And it. In. What. Is it.
