JINDAL

I am sure the Louisiana voters are all torn up over Governor Bobby Jindal's statement that he will not enter the US Senate Race.  Jindal made the statement on Monday when he appeared before the Baton Rouge Press Club.  Not that there is much room for him to run, given that the Republicann field is getting busier every day and with the state political class waiting for Treasurer John Kennedy to enter the field.

Jindal also said he did not have any plans yet when he returns to the private sector.  

Of course, one might want to ask if, after he leaves office, will he start campaigning for a GOP candidate for President, so, he could get a national job.  Of course, he would be doing this all on his own dime and perhaps, cash he still has in his political accounts.

SENATOR LANDRIEU

Mary Landrieu has been asked to serve on CASA board, an organization to help abused children.   How is her new gig as a Lobbyist?  Here is the interview from Bloomberg

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
