woody jenkinsDuring Louisiana's recent statewide elections, I was doing a little research on a Democratic candidate for State Senate. I saw that the Louisiana Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee gave the candidate $150,000. Wow! That was a lot of money in a state senate race. I decided to dig a little deeper. So I looked up the donor list of the DSCC. I was shocked to see the names of many big international corporations that gave the Democrats $10,000 or more each — names like Exxon, Dow Chemical, and Pfizer drug company!

The list went on and on. Yes, it was shocking! But then I decided to take a look at the comparable committee on the Republican side. Whoaaa! As I looked at the Republican list, a deep sense of nausea swept over me! Many of the same companies were on BOTH lists, including Exxon, Dow, and Pfizer! It was proof once again that whether the Democrats win or the Republicans win, the "establishment" — especially big business — always wins! Because no matter which candidate is victorious, the establishment will have their ear!

To some degree, they don't much care what the candidates SAY while they are candidates, because they know that after the election, they will get hold to the newly-elected officeholder and set him straight. Pure and simple, they buy influence and plenty of it on both sides of the aisle. All of which leads me to Donald Trump and why the establishment is in a red hot panic about the possibility that he will become the Republican nominee and, God forbid, be elected President of the United States!

The panic and the vitriol come from the establishment's realization that they CANNOT CONTROL Trump! He doesn't need their money, and he's not taking their money! For the first time in a very long time, they face the possibility of a President that they cannot buy, pressure, threaten, browbeat or control! Trump's refusal to take their money is one of the most significant things happening in this campaign. But of course the media doesn't talk about it much because they don't want the public to focus on it. After all, for years, the media has harped on the evil of big money influence on our politicians. Yet, today, when a candidate is leading in the polls without being dependent on the money of special interests, they are strangely silent. Yes, the establishment is scared to death of Donald Trump and for good reason!

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.
