brown pinsonat interviewWhat do two of the most highly recognized Louisiana politicos over the past few decades think about the upcoming Louisiana US Senate race?  

Former Louisiana State official Jim Brown and Bernie Pinsonat joined Stephen Sabludowsky in a Facebook Live event, on Wednesday afternoon.

 

 

Brown and Pinsonat have personally been involved, one way or another, in more elections than most here in Louisiana. 

Their respective takes:

Pinsonat, a Pollster and President of Southern Media and Opinion Research said he is about to do a poll and the previous polls are relevant but the candidates are not well known.   Currently, there are 24 candidates with only a handful having any real name or face recognition, statewide.

He also said so far, perhaps due to the lack of money, or interest, there has not been much focus on this important election.  He noted that the Congressmen who are running (Republicans John Fleming and Charles Boustany) come home telling what they have done for the voters, but they are not well known throughout the state.

Brown said there is a lot of interest in Louisiana around the nation.  Brown, who is currently in North Carolina said everybody wants to know what is going on in Louisiana.  he said that the importance of the election might come to a head later this year if it turns out that the control of the uS Senate could be involved.

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.
