kennedy officeWeeks to go left in 2016 and Louisiana voters are rather pessimistic.  The economy is poor, state is losing its education program TOPS, stagnant wages, higher insurance costs, lack of jobs, state out of money.  We could go on.

By the way, wake up, there's a US Senate race and other Congressional elections this week.  

In one of the most lackluster statewide elections in recent Louisiana history, the election could be important to the state for a variety of reasons. 

In a Facebook Live interview on Monday, Bernie Pinsonat talks about the Louisiana US Senate race poll, how and why Kennedy is safely ahead by 14 points, the implications of the turnout on the race. 

As is, Louisiana and national Democrats want to pick up the US Senate seat and keep the GOP to 51-seat majority.  He has raised some money but no big money like Mary Landrieu did two years ago.

Click on the video and watch the first part of the interview with Bernie Pinsonat as he discusses his recent poll and other local and national issues.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
