Tonight on the Scoot Show: Burger King appears to be working on a plan to buy a smaller Canadian company that sells coffee and donuts. This would allow Burge King to move its headquarters from Miami to Toronto, where the corporate tax is about 15% compared to 35% in the United States. There is already a campaign to boycott Burger King. President Obama has called companies that move to escape higher U.S. taxes – “corporate deserters.” Do you agree? Will you boycott Burger King if the company moves its headquarters to Canada? Do you buy only American-made products? THEN: President Obama has ordered drone surveillance flights over Syria and the speculation is that the flights are preparation for attacked against ISIS in Syria. There are warnings that further attacks against ISIS will lead to attacks on America. Should we leave ISIS alone? ALSO: Should dreadlocks be allowed if they represent religious conviction? The Superintendent of Plaquemines Parish schools is hoping to resolve a dispute over a student who was suspended because his dreads violated the school system’s policy on hairstyles. AND: Are celebrities and athletes paid too much? There is outrage over the huge salaries of CEOs – should there be equal outrage over what celebrities and athletes are paid? What does it say about our society if teachers, police and firefighters are paid so little – while celebrities and athletes are paid so much?
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?

Society. No you're right but since Americans will buy a the best product at the lowest price and and the lowest price sometimes is more important than the best product. Then companies are going to be. Encouraged to manufacture overseas and manufacturing is it is overall as a dying industry in this country where. We know we're transforming from a manufacturing -- Guess the industrial -- was part of that too. And technology and our service industry. Well not net and mr. of course of course.

Well I would say half the time and I've had those situations or deal with somebody who sounds like there in India I don't know exactly where they are. But for the most part they understand what I say I understand that a lot of Americans are offended by that but that's part of the global economy and it.
