Friendly tips to our friend Monica that is visiting from Connecticut. Plus ... Conservative Rocker Ted Nugent says that a "liberal army is assigned to destroy Ted Nugent." Nugent's concern was cancelled at a casino in northwest Idaho. Do you think there's a liberal army out to destroy Ted Nugent - or is Ted Nugent destroying himself? Is Ted Nugent's free of speech being infringed upon?
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?

Articles highway ninety along and and I guess when you got to Bay Saint Louis sweet and an area that's when you first realize you were at the at the beach. Because that you return on highway ninety along along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. But -- that's a fun thing and the big event going on this weekend in grand -- the grand isle park in rodeo. Now this is not to be mistaken with just your average fishing rodeo. Because it's my understanding that there are a lot of people who go there and they're not interested in fishing. Here is another text -- -- another suggestion for Monica visit from day. Via Backstreet cultural musical visit back Backstreet cultural museum to learn about the -- -- Indian history. Mean this city is so rich that's a good idea this city is so rich with with history. That we have a chance to talk about this it is -- a brand of -- it started on the show last night. Well we have a chance to talk about. Things to -- a New Orleans it reminds those of us who live here it reminds us of all the great things that there are to do. Anyway if you go to the grand isle TARP and rodeo and all lot of bands in and crafts and and food it's it's a fun time. I'm not everybody goes to fish because it is just a huge huge party it's been years since I've been there but. It's. Oftentimes Angeles at the weather's going to be -- always a chance of some thunderstorms this time of year but it looks as if the winters is going to be nice for that. Earlier in the show we were talking about. What I thought was an unfortunate situation with a four year old boy. A four year old boy was in a donut shop with a mother. And he saw this employee and he said to the employee of the donut shop is that a baby your belly. The problem is. The woman was project. And when that when the mother and the child went back to this donut shop the -- Ian Ian -- Connecticut. When they went back to the donut shop a couple of days later. The mother says that they they screamed at her and told to never come back they were allowed in there because her kid was -- To me this was just kind of inexcusable. Mistake by a four year old would mean he didn't know any better and the woman who he said it to actually accepted the apology the mother. She was an upset. But apparently the manager was so upset that somebody would say that two hour. Now that we call or anything derogatory didn't say anything really ugly about her. But he did. He did saved. Is that a baby in your belly and I just think that was an honest mistake from a from a kid and I mean we've you know we've also -- embarrassing thing I've got a text early for Simonyi said. Yes I -- this woman that I knew which was pregnant and when I saw our I said what are you gonna have that baby. She had a two weeks after India in two weeks before he said that so she guard had the baby and he said whoops that was a big mistake -- avatar and about a four year old kid here. Here's a quick update on had a VW a pretty -- about the new poll tonight to survey shows 22% of Americans believe the only way to fix congress is to fire every one. Vote all the incumbents out. Do you agree 78%. Say yes 22% say -- Now what -- clarified -- this is not to suggest that. That if 22%. Of Americans. Think the best way to fix congress is to fire everybody go to all the incumbents. That's not to suggest that 78% of Americans have faith in congress. Because the poll actually shows that only 15% of Americans. Approve of the job congress is doing. But 22%. Are willing to vote out every incumbent. And I don't know what it's gonna take. But we need to continue to use. -- media. We need to continue to use. Talk shows. To let politicians know. How discussed -- -- And we need to let them know that we're willing to vote him out of office I mean they they. They shouldn't just be begging for votes. They should be demonstrating behavior. -- the news. That is worthy. Of our folks that makes our our our votes. Worthy. And I just see so much fighting and there's so much discussed with congress and yet what happens. We end up sending a lot of the same people back. And could quite often we've got both parties back catering to the extreme base not the base that the extreme base in in their party's. And the vast majority of the American people. That sit back and they allow it to happen because it it's the extremes on both sides that make the most noise. They get the most attention. And there's no doubt that there are a lot of Republicans who had this feeling that. The only way to get elected is to be really conservative and fire erupt the conservative base of the Republican Party in order to get the nomination. But then you've done things along the campaign trail that taints your image in the general election. And I think with everything that's going on in the world today. And I I've said this before I honestly believe that the 2016 presidential election I think daddy's for the Republicans to lose. I would expect them the way things are now an elected change between now 2016. But I can't see how they would lose the White House because there's such discontent. With a Democrat in the White House right now. There whether it's fair or not they're such widespread discontent. Especially among young voters many of them who voted for President Obama. They're not happy. And behold -- going on in the world I really think that this would be a great opportunity for Republicans to take over the White House again however. I don't think they're gonna win if the Republican Party nominates a hard core social conservative. Bringing up issues about. Birth control. Abortion same sex marriage. All those issues I think that will do the Republicans once again and in a way that Democrats might win. Just. By fault. And and I know a lot of people are saying that Hillary and it looks like she's running in 2016. But she is such a part of the political establishment that most of us are so disgusted with us. But I can't see how she would be an easy target. To criticize. And campaign against as being part of the political establishment. If you wanna join us tonight on numbers 2601870. -- free 866889. Nearly seventy and a text number -- is a 7870. This is the -- shelves Thursday nights we'll be right back on -- of you'll. Conservative rocker Ted Nugent has had some upcoming shows canceled because of his racist image. Ted -- says there is a liberal army. That is a sign to destroy. Ted Nugent. The emerald queen casino which is in -- just south of Seattle. The emerald queen casino is the most recent casino to. Cancel -- -- shows canceled two shows August 2 and August 3. And also the -- late try burger court ruling tribe owns. Casino in this is in the very tip the northwest quarter of of Idaho. They also canceled to due to show for August 4 they said they both Timothy did not know that he espoused. Such racist attitudes. And views. -- Ted -- has been very vocal about a number of things he called President Obama sub human Mungro. And later apologized for -- if he really didn't mean to say that then who are few really meant to say it'd be stays like that he would have apologized for it. He says. That he he would he was using he he didn't mean to use street fight terminology. But did you has sent a lot of just really bizarre outrageous things about about racing and about politics. And I guess I'm surprised because at Tacoma. In south of Seattle. You know that's an area that has they have a lot of a lot of conservatives in that area. Lot of conservatives right outside of Seattle put. You know there's a lot of a blue collar families and got that all blue collar families are our conservative or not at all conservative blue collar families that. You know it's it's -- what is -- a city where I thought Ted -- -- it would really be welcomed but apparently the emerald queen casino said. They were getting threats. From community members demanding that that the show be canceled. And also a court ruling Idaho a flooded northern tip of Idaho that is a fairy fairy strong. Conservative area so I'm surprised that they had that reaction as well. Has Ted Nugent lost his right to freedom of speech or is ten digit being judged for. The way he uses freedom of speech again that's a topic that keeps coming up on the show. A police in southern Californians. Are deciding whether to arrest an eighty year old man. The eighty year old Mahan shot an unarmed burglar. But he shattering the back. Despite the fact that she said she was pregnant. Now if somebody is. In -- your home in their pregnant I guess that really doesn't really matter how Long Beach police say that they haven't decided whether or not to charge eighty year old Tom Greer. He's cooperating with the investigation. And the police also refused to answer questions about it whether the 28 year old Andrea Miller. The the person who went into his home. Whether or not to she was actually pregnant. Now they did say that there are murder charges against apparently her accomplice 46 year old -- Adams. Which possibly involved in a felony that led to to death. So I guess these are really good people but I guess here's my question. If you shoot somebody in the back. Is -- kinda difficult to prove that your life was threatened. If somebody is retreating. If they're leaving. Issued medevac. Usually have to shoot him. If somebody's coming at you use a gun for self defense. Well that's understandable. But shouldn't there be questions about shooting somebody. In the back -- eat at that point. He can't shoot somebody because you think they deserve it. You can't shoot somebody because his. You're seeking revenge or your mad at them. -- year. Just upset that they broke into your house. I believe you're supposed to demonstrate that your life was threatened. And if you shoot somebody in the back it seems like that might be a little difficult.

The debate over the death penalty was sparked again we talked about this a little bit on the show last night because it happened while we were on the year. Is it sparked again because of what's been described as -- botched execution. It took almost two hours to kill convicted killer Joseph would. And the victim's sister I saw her on the news earlier. She said that she was eighteen when her sister when this guy killed her sister and her father in cold -- And she said she was at the execution. This is in the state of Arizona she said the guy went to sleep. And it was a much more peaceful death then the sister. And the father had. A defense attorney said that it took so long to. To execute him to -- -- about an hour into the process. The attorney wanted to try to administer life. Lifesaving treatment. Because it appeared as if his client was was still gasping for a year. And snoring. So he was still line. Now the attorney general's office has said that 55 year old Joseph wood did die he wished he wished brain dead. When the second dose of the lethal drug was administered. And the sounds and the movements that came from -- That was involuntary action. And you know where do you think the cliche comes from running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Because I mean I've never done this exciting group on a farm that are right I understand that if you cut it -- -- off day and sometimes added that chicken will still. Will still -- IRobot running around but not maybe you've maybe you CNET. So I don't I don't doubt that there would be some involuntary. Reaction. After death which really -- -- kind of wonder about people who were beheaded you know -- actually blanket you -- -- they still have a moment to say. Higher buyers or. Our. I I don't know I mean that's that would be weird but I mean I guess you'd really. Essentially be dead but I heard -- people talk about this botched execution but then I heard others like the victim's sister. So it was a bust at all. The guy went to sleep. And many are you so what if it took almost two hours a 117 minutes for him to officially been declared dead. So what. I really and I've expressed this on the air I have ambivalent feelings about the death penalty. I understand. About taking a life. Because it's such a horrific crime that's committed. But from a human moral standpoint I still struggle with this idea that it is a plan to. Calculated. Death. In. Him a medical kind of inform -- morally I have a problem with that but emotionally. I don't have a problem with the death penalty at all. All before I get to this this final break and our show. Our correctional facility show last night. I said on the show last night that there are many more. Heterosexual had a files that homosexuals. And I did research on this for show. A few years back. And I got to the -- except wanted to check this guy out of the year and there -- a lot of information about. There about that the number of a pedophile homosexuals and that they had to file homosexuals in terms of numbers. Might not be as as big a threat as as heterosexuals. -- Percentage wise among the population of homosexuals. Among the population that they make up they might make up a disproportionate number of had a file -- -- what -- I do wanna correct on the shorter nine. Here's an update on -- WW a pretty general opinion polls surveys says that 42% of Americans believe the only way to fix congress -- to fire everybody vote all the incumbents out. 78% say yeah they agree with that. 22%. Disagree. If you would give as your opinion go to our website WW real dot com. And discuss blog tonight is. It is about whether or not we've been desensitized to real violence. Have we become desensitized to real violence that's on our website at WW real dot com. And you -- read it and share with others and we'll be right back aboard this -- show on WWL CNN had breaking news tonight to that. That Russia. And is that they know for sure that Russia plans to deliver powerful rocket launchers to the Russian separatists in Ukraine. And also the US according to this report on CNN has proved. That Russian artillery is being fired across the border in the Ukraine and I really don't like this. Is cooling off of our our relationship with Russia you know we help them a lot when they. I'd -- from communism and it adopted I democracy. Essentially democratic society. They've got a lot of problems financially and -- this is not. A strong nation economically yet. In many people describe Russia a big nation but still a Third World country and in many ways. And you know they -- benefits so much from us by -- you know Putin's seems to have this. And his ego. It doesn't allow him to wanna do anything other than just tried to. Takes center stage. When it comes to global politics always going to be really interesting to see how this. How this plays out and aid to seems quite obvious that the Russians were involved in some way for -- says it might have been. With the shooting down of that civilian Malaysian airlines. -- -- Let's say when I got off the year I was watching a series of the weather channel retirement mr. earlier in the show why planes crash. And one of the hour long specials was titled brace for impact and it would have this show about major plane crashes in. What happened in the used actual film or video of the plane crashes. And it used animation. And I thought about how interesting it was that I was sitting there watching this with all the recent plane crashes -- -- directly relate to. A -- and it's still we still see this on the news every day footage of the the smoldering. Wreckage of the Malaysian airlines flight seventy in the Boeing triple seven. And it made -- realize that. These things that weeks we react to these things that we are passionate about. These things that make us feel something. Are -- graphic. And so this led me to really believe that we're really not desensitized. To real violence. Because of Hollywood violence it -- quite often I've I've heard people say well we're just to sensitized to violence because of all the graphic violence from Hollywood. I don't think we are and think about the things that you see it really don't show anything graphic. But if you know which -- You do pay attention to. And I think the other part of this is say demonstrated when you see people slowdown to look at -- wreck on the side of the road how many graphic car. Crashes have we seen in movies. Graphic. And yet we still slowed down to see is stupid reckon the side of the road. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Big -- helpful we count me you know pedestrians and everybody's. Wrote. In.
