boustanyFleming hits Boustany on two fronts
    The alleged prostitution scandal aside, U.S. Rep. John Fleming, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, took a couple of different swings at U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany, his fellow GOP Senate candidate.

 


    Fleming noted that while Boustany boasts of his support for flood victims in Louisiana, he was missing in action for a recent event in the U.S. House.
    There was a moment of silence to honor the  victims of the August flooding in the Greater Baton Rouge area.  Fleming said that every member of the Louisiana Congressional delegation – Republicans and Democrat – joined together on the House floor to honor the flood victims – except Boustany.
    On another issue, Fleming pointed out that Boustany is running a radio ad calling out both Republicans and Democrat “enablers” of President Obama’s Iran deal.
    Calling the ad “Boustany’s Baloney,” a spokesman for Fleming pointed out that Boustany was one of the “enablers.”  He voted for the bill that allowed the Iran deal to become a reality,
    So, as one can see, things are beginning to heat up among Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate. State Treasurer still holds a sizeable lead in recent polls with Democrat Foster Campbell in second place.

  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

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.
