duke beardLouisiana Treasurer John Kennedy leads in the most recent US Senate Race poll as six candidates, including David Duke, are scheduled to debate November 2 at an African American University in New Orleans. Duke has signaled that he will attend the first televised debate since the 1990's


The poll by Mason Dixons, from Florida:
John Kennedy - Republican 24.2%
Foster Campbell - Democrat 18.9%
Caroline Fayard - Democrat 12.0%
Charles Boustany - Republican 11.4%
John Fleming - Republican 10.2%
David Duke - Republican 5.1%
Rob Maness - Republican 3.4%


Colonel Rob Maness did not make the 5.0 percent cut.


The poll differs from another recent poll by JMC Analytics and Polling, an electronic poll commissioned by Republican Congressman John Fleming. In that poll, Louisiana Treasurer Kennedy is mired in double digits in a virtual tie with Fleming and Republican Congressman Charles Boustany for the second spot. Leading the pack was Foster Campbell and trailing in 5th place spot was Caroline Fayard.


In that poll, David Duke did not qualify for the LPB debate.


Jim Brown discusses the debate and the significance of Duke’s presence in a recent video interview with Stephen Sabludowsky, publisher of Bayoubuzz.com

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.
