Want a close-up on the Louisiana legislative session budget woes, New Orleans crime, confederate statues, the region’s economy, the Presidential race and so many of the burning facing our region, state and country?

If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Just head over to The Eiffel Society this Thursday June 9, as the June edition of Politics with a Punch 2016 begins the summer’s fireworks amid the rattle of politics and the laughter of comedy.

 

Heading our political showcase panel are:

Hon. Troy Carter, Louisiana State Senator, 7th District (D-New Orleans)

James Cusimano, Outstanding Comedian; Local Headliner; Punch Favorite

Michael Hecht, President & CEO, Greater New Orleans, Inc.

Maureen "Mo" McConnell, Actress, Talk Show Host, & Producer

Pierre McGraw, Founder and President, Monumental Task Committee

Dr. Jeffrey Rouse, Orleans Parish Coroner

Mike Weinberger, Founder and President, Home Defense Foundation

 

For those few, not familiar with Politics with a Punch, it is our local version of "Politically Incorrect." It started in 2002 and after more than 100 shows and 14 years, it has become a local political tradition. The show is jointly produced with Jeff Crouere who serves as the host and MC.

When Punch gets going, no issue is off the table.  I call it “funnier than laughing gas”

Politics with a Punch is held at the spectacular Eiffel Society at 2040 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans.

Doors open at 6PM.  You can purchase drinks and order dinner, which we are pleased to say is delicious, indeed.  Come schmooze and get a good seat.  The show starts at roughly 8PM.

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?

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.

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.
