lagop damageSome political notes to runinate over some holiday egg-nog and rum:


Jindal, Mitch Landrieu, GOP,  Louisiana republican party,  House Speaker, Leger

Interesting…the Governor elect, Jon Bel Edwards, has made it known that he wants Rep Walt Leger to be the next Speaker of the House.  But, some Republicans in the House want their independence.  So, do the Republican Party of Louisiana, the Louisiana Right to Life and the Christian conservative organization Louisiana Family Forum, outside parties wanting those on the inside to go in another direction.  They have sent emails opposing the choice.  The group is calling for the majority party in the House to Republican Rep. Cameron Henry of Metairie.   Traditionally, the governor-elect has been given great deference is determining the legislative leaders.

Although it is four days prior to the now controversial vote on the Monuments, a UNO poll showed that Mayor Mitch Landrieu has a 57 percent favorable rating, but, that does not mean the city’s voters are itching for a third-term for Mitch.

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.
