I've got like a sack machine man. Doing it you know. Blown up. Titled did nothing about it like that James Brown opens in fighting this Friday saw the previews from us on the verge of anarchy this past Saturday night. The movie was produced by Mick Jagger. So it was a hands on producer wasn't just wasn't just they are putting his name he was an actual hands on producer. And he admits that he copied many of James Brown's dance moves on stage and you think about the way mixed -- around on stage. As he got a lot of the ideas and -- crowd. Who was really very very. Innovated in much that he did. Now James Brown was arrested a few times I think that's it's part of the movie. He did have somewhat of controversial life to some degree. But I think about Mick Jagger producing this movie -- around The Rolling Stones and The Beatles were among the British groups in the in the 1960s. They'd admit that they were influenced by American R&B. Infected Beatles actually took are indeed it mostly young blacks -- listened to in this country. The Beatles the stones and demands of the British invasion the sixties. They took aren't being read it themselves and they essentially introduced. Black music. To America. So with the forcing us through it opens up theaters on Friday. Let me give you a warning before talk about it it's the content of what I'm about to talk about. Is intended as satire. And should not be taken personally. By anyone. There are flyers that have appeared to be promoting. This new festival at Columbus, Ohio the flyers promote the straight. White guy festival. In Columbus, Ohio authorities have not been able to determine if the festival is really gonna take place -- just to crank. This straight white guy festival is being promoted were September the twentieth at Columbus is good deal park which is where they hold the annual gay pride rate. In talking about gay pride parades and festivals went on to show. You know I will occasionally you have callers or somebody -- attacks and -- If they have a gay pride parade what about a straight pride festival what about a straight pride rate. Okay. Would you support. A street. A straight guy -- I mean when you think about the the growing acceptance of of homosexuals throughout society. I imagine many people would support a festival that would would celebrate being street. Maybe it's time for straight people to stand up and demand that this country promotes in equality in marriage promotes discrimination against homosexuals in the workplace. Street people in America. Are exposed to news almost every day about court rulings. That proposed bans on same sex marriage are unconstitutional. Heterosexuals. Should have a festival that celebrates the fact that men and women should be together. Even though neither gender really totally understands the other. Yeah I think you that there at the straight pride festival. A critic dollars the disadvantages of being a homosexual we dissidents is being heterosexual. I mean there are disadvantages to being straight for example. A straight American couples at a great disadvantage. Because they can share each others close. Gay couples can. American women with straight husbands. Can't depend on their partner to contribute to the tasteful decoration. Of -- -- So I was an affair. So if this truly is a country built on equality. Why not a straight pride festival. To bring to light the countless injustices bestowed upon heterosexuals. It would be about politics. But it would also be about just going out and having fun. And celebrating straight yes. For all the world to see. And if there was a straight pride festival. What -- the festival include. I guess. The rainbow colors that represent gay pride they can be replaced with navy blue and khaki. That was to be the official colors of the state -- should be street professional. A boost would sell T shirts that would have phrases like. Adam and eve not Adam and Steve. And a slogan like a support equality in marriage or only athletes should -- each other on the bunt or T shirt that says straight happens. And maybe there could be popular songs that would replace Dave you know we are family and I will survive and it's raining men. Those are popular to gay pride festivals may be it would be songs. A straight up by Paula Abdul. A straight from the heart by Bryan Adams or Superman by by Kryptonite. No one concern I think if there wasn't a straight pride festival one concern would be that. You know the news cameras would only focus on those people who were acting outrageously. And that might demean the image of Wall -- everywhere. You know because they might stable you know practice that represented me I don't act like that. That's not for percent of a fall look at how those -- federal sex interact and we don't act like that so it's it's it's totally different. -- we shouldn't. Which -- what that on TV. And inevitably if there was a straight pride festival you don't would have. -- news cameras would catch street guys chugging beer belching. Pocket bogeys in public on streets. And you know again we would hear Hayward -- all that way don't judge us by the behavior of those who make it on the news at the straight pride festival. But you -- the country. That is built on equality. There's no reason not to have -- pride festival. Other -- the fact that it would probably be -- What else. Would be part. Of a street price festival.

Jim Davis was at the Wal-Mart in Ames Iowa and they refused to selling to six packs of beer and a bottle of vodka because he was with his teenage daughter.

Here's a Texan Reid said thanks for letting me be part of your show I don't know if I can and listen to it in other parts of the country. But I can't wait to come back and visit again that's from Monica. We talked to Monica earlier for those of you who were with us one night last week. Somebody called her show she was driving into New Orleans she was somewhere in Mississippi. Driving into New Orleans and we we -- you were -- -- year he was going to be her first time in the city. And she's from Connecticut first time in New Orleans and a civil -- when he gets here she called a slate of that bank which -- which he arrived. And we were talking about things to do and and many people the audience for sending texting and calling it was suggestions for for Monica. And apparently she really did not have a good to New Orleans experience. She loves the city can't way to connect she she called -- show earlier. And Monica if you are listening and I'll I'll send to expect remind you that you can also download Debbie WL app. Or you could pick a sub you know quite often you'll be able to pick us up especially during the wintertime on a cool light you can pick us up probably and in in Connecticut. Which you cover 38 states at night. Getting back to this idea of buying alcohol. In front of your kids. I just I just think that there was a time when adults were not afraid to be adults. They were not afraid to tell the kids your kit. And now it's almost as if well if you do with that I can do it. -- kids shouldn't have that attitude. When he parent should -- a good example for their children. But -- there's things that adults can do that kids can't do. When we went out. My parents drank. And we wanted to be like the grownups and so my parents or with friends. We order a Roy Rogers or Shirley Temple. Which is a mock cocktails. And he comes in Iraq points. Now are there any updated games for those. I mean Roy Rogers in and Shirley Temple I mean that's that's going way back as it is it time to maybe update that cocktail. And with the book would how would you update the cocktail. Like for the boy it was a however Roy Rogers. Girl whatever surely chapel. The little boy orders Shirley Temple and just -- -- -- your -- on. But I think the Shirley Temple was with 7UP an integrated dean and where Rogers who was with Coke and and and -- But it issued update those things but see we were we were mocking our parents. But that doesn't mean that we grew up and drank in anybody who grew up and had a drinking problem could never blame -- -- the fact that they were drinking Roy Rogers and and -- Shirley temples with their parents. I also thought earlier about candy cigarettes. They they came in boxes that had the didn't the brand names of different cigarettes. On the pack he could buy different packs of candy cigarettes -- the different names of the manufacturers. Came -- like a little cigarette. Cigarette box. We played with cigarettes. I don't smoke. I can't imagine anybody. Blaming their smoking on. Playing with candy cigarettes. There was a time -- in this country we over we were very content. To distinguish. Behavior. From things that we were exposed to. And now there seems to be this overall tendency to wanna. -- prevent people from being exposed to certain things for feared that if there's simply exposed to it it's gonna lead them to do it. And I think that. Takes a way respect for this idea of personal responsibility. Of the power that a person hands. To. Make the right decision regardless of what to play with regardless of of what you're exposed to -- Jewish site are numbers 2601870. Toll free 86688. Nines -- it's having a text number is 87870. Here is attacks it reads maybe when she says free to come about she will want to celebrate. Here is another text the reason cashiers are required to card anyone who touches alcohol. At the check out. Maybe she touched it accidentally. Meaning to fifteen year old girl may have touched it accidentally. Perhaps I don't know I wasn't there are just going by the story that are reading now are one of defend Wal-Mart in saying that Wal-Mart. The company the corporation said that this employee made a mistake and did not follow the proper procedure. It represents the company Wal-Mart said do what happened in this case is not consistent with the intent of our policy. The last thing that you do is less do you wanna do is to create an atmosphere where people feel like they can't do you. Store purchasing. With their children. And I agree with that but this particular employee. Decided that because this fifteen year old girl was with this 57 year old man. She wasn't she or he I don't know whether it was a male or female would not sell him to six packs of -- And a bottle of vodka and he said it was a very humiliating experience. So I bring to -- WW a pretty general opinion poll tonight. Is it wrong for parents to buy alcohol and cigarettes. Went shopping with their kids. Especially they're teenagers. Give a sure thing by going to our web site WB -- dot com we'll give it up to -- coming up here. In just a few minutes here is a text that reads. We do not need a street parade. I don't need to flaunt. I'm heterosexual. Your soapbox is getting tiresome. 2% of the country does not make for change. Well a recent survey showed that only 2% of the country defines itself as gay or lesbian. And that's always about where I buy iPhone -- -- There have been and larger predictions and that in their people who have this perception that the gay communities is actually bigger than that. But it's not just the gay community. The gay community supported by. Much of America. That supports equality. So the support for gay marriage is not just coming from 2% of the population. It's covering from a great many people across America who were straight. Who just support equality. And don't think the government -- and should be involved in in personal decisions like like marriage for example. So it it goes back to. The affected the ways in which -- that supported integration. That helped blacks a small percentage of the population. Actually. Become integrated in and we ended the same rights that that we all have. It was because of a lot of white support and so it's a lot of -- -- support that is actually leading to. The demand or this is growing demand for -- quality and customer -- but I'm just -- have had fun with the -- blog tonight. Which is titled. A straight pride festival in Ohio because their suppliers that have gone out -- a straight white guys festival in Columbus, Ohio and I thought we'd have a little. Fun with them by talking about what what -- straight pride festival I'll -- like it -- BI admitted when I started talking about this that the contents is not intended to two. Offend anybody it's attended to simply as -- as satire. And I just they think it's I think it's interesting we talk about these things to. To do the parallel of what you know. Heterosexuals. And would we think you know. Look at these look at these people who are on making it on the news during this straight pride festival what they're making fools of themselves status. Well that's we're likely speak when they see outrageous characters from the gay pride parade or gay pride festival on the news. But that's the nature of news to attract the most outrageous. Extreme. Characters. That are part of any event that's the nature of news so you can't defined groups by what you see in the news so there was some intent behind. The the block tonight. A straight pride festival in Ohio it's on our website at WW dot dot com you can read it and I share and others are here's the band that there Rick Springfield said reminded him of the new band.

And according to a new report Louisiana ranks fifth in the nation in terms of being the dog friendly city with one point one billion dogs in just under 900000 cats. -- cancer according to this study are. More popular in the northeast and two and dogs are preferred in the south. I think about cities that I lived in most recently. -- Denver Portland Seattle. Doors were very popular in those cities. They were very dog friendly cities it was it was very common if there was any restaurant that had an outside -- screw area. Outside tables and outside cafe. It was very common in all of those cities. For there to be. I'd -- dog bowl of water. And also. A dog biscuits. A lot of places would have dog biscuits out for people who work.

And that nobody is so unpleasant but that's stays locked in your memory for effort. And some people don't never smoke again. Here's a Texas is saying in reference to the -- played Wal-Mart not to selling 26 packs of beer and vodka. 257 year old man shopping with is a fifteen year old daughter. Why don't people contact the manager when they have a problem it seems too many people are turning to social media as a primary option. That's true I don't know if I don't know if this person contacted the manager but he does seem as is the I I got the impression from the article Everett. -- this particular Wal-Mart -- silent. -- supported not selling the alcohol liked. Wal-Mart issued a statement the eight the corporation. Issued a statement saying that that was not congruent. With their policy. I hear is attacks that reason I used to like -- candy cigarettes. -- spice yours and Ben Franklin in Saint Louis I used to get all -- candy there my sister and I would go when there. I've could be able to pick up candy out of baskets. Still even a penny or five cents at the time. We now come out with a full brown bag of candy. And that had nothing to do with me smoking -- smoked for short periods of time. But I do not smoke cigarettes anymore I actually enjoyed the candy cigarettes more than the real ones -- I remember that distinct taste of the the the cigarette. The candy cigarettes. And -- a kind of a little -- tint on the end. Did database to look like he was linked. And I don't know about Hubert and my brother sister and I knew who Weaver -- to play with the candy cigarettes -- we can't eat the and download it. So was we were having a conversation it appears if we were actually smoking a cigarette. And yet I don't announcement today.

Carry out of the store. They were -- -- by the cashier. You know I realize that this may be the law. In -- realize that businesses. Must. Follow the law. But half -- laws. Just got a little bit out of control when it comes to things like this. I mean again I remember time when my mother would send me to the corner store. To get beer and cigarettes for I don't know maybe even I got vodka I -- even afford vodka for. Specifically are remembered in a six pack of beer getting cigarettes. And see -- kids today are lucky because your parents can't do that deal they can't make you go to the story get beer and cigarettes form because they have to go themselves because you can't buy it. I'm from Gulfport Wayne here on this crucial to be WL. I could anybody. Could. Drop about what you look at them to really. -- Just think it because you know. What you say is all the options. Of personal responsibility. That's the all responsible. Right. And I think -- such -- but I think that's something that we see with so many things happening in our in our country there's the assumption of no personal responsibility. They -- for its robbing us of many of our individual freedoms. Think. What -- In age and -- week -- and they. We re a little. And I mean -- with a lot. If if if you -- if you hit your brother.
