donelon fb liveWater is one Louisiana's best friends.  We love to swim and fish in it.  But, water flooding due to excessive rain or other weather events has caused damage to the hopes and dreams of many in Louisiana.

The recent inundation due to an unexpected rain in the Baton Rouge area and earlier flooding this year are striking reminders that no matter where you live, you're running a risk should disaster strike.  

But, what happens if the federal government has not mandated the purchasing of flood insurance and then the flood strikes?  This is what occurred last month as thousands of Louisiana citizens who did not purchase flood insurance, have been seriously impacted by the most recent flood.

Louisiana Commissioner of Insurance, Jim Donelon, will join Publisher Stephen Sabludowsky as his guest today on Bayoubuzz’s Facebook Live to discuss these and other issues including an emergency rule that his department recently issued regarding the payment of insurance premiums by people who live in areas impacted by flooding and how does that rule protect insurance policyholders?

Keep in mind that we are smack in the middle of the worst part of the hurricane season.  The next storm can be your next disaster.

If you have any questions you would like Commissioner Donelon to answer, you can  email it to steve AT  Or, you can type your questions into the comment box on Facebook page here , once the program begins.

  We will also try to read the Facebook comments during the show.

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.
