Louisiana Legislative special session call agenda set but will legislators defy Jindal?
Written by 

Rep.-Dee-Richard-144x150Rep. Dee Richard has set the “call” (agenda) for the leges to call themselves into a special lege session. (See petition here.)

 

If 35 members of the House and 13 members of the Senate sign the attached petition, the petition will be sent to the rest of the leges for their signatures. At that point, if another 18 House members and 7 senators sign the session will begin at Noon on November 26 and last for 15 days.

We’ve heard a lot of whining from the leges over the closing of various state facilities. Richard is giving those leges a chance to actually do something about the closing.

Action needed

If you are concerned about the budget cuts to healthcare services, health and prison facility closings you must contact your leges immediately and demand that they sign the petition.

The choice is clear. The leges either represent you or they are merely lapdogs to Bobby Jindal.

Richard has given us a chance, but if we fail to do our part then we have nobody to blame, but ourselves.

Kudos to Richard for having the courage to give us this opportunity. It’s a great opportunity to find out if our individual leges are all talk and no guts.

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.
