Will Louisiana, Jindal Crowe Over Birther Bill?
Written by 

 Louisiana’s “Birther” law is getting recognition, especially since governor Bobby Jindal said he would likely sign the legislation should it pass the legislature. 

For weeks, the Birther issue has received more attention as Donald Trump has trumpeted the issue on the presidential campaign trail.  

Now, the birther issue has given birth to another Louisiana voice.  Conservative Senator A.G. Crowe, one of the authors of the Louisiana “birther” legislation filed for the recent legislative session has appeared this week on CNN to defend his bill in front of a national audience.  Crowe denied that the legislation was spirited at President Obama but said it was to defend the constitution. 

In a Buzzback comment following Thursday Jeff Crouere’s columnon this matter, an interesting questioned was raised—it asked: have you read HB 561? 

The buzzback said, “Here it is:

For all candidates in primary and general elections for President, Vice President, the House, and Senate, an affidavit must be sent that includes "An original or certified copy of the candidate's birth certificate that includes the date and place of birth, the names of the hospital and the attending physician, and signatures of the witnesses in attendance."

Here's an example of the current Louisiana "long form" birth certificate from someone who ran for Congress a few years back:

So let's compare the requirements of HB 561 to what Louisiana provides as a "certified copy" of a birth certificate.....

1) the date and place of birth - check.
2) the names of the hospital - check.
3) and the attending physician - Houston, we have a problem!
4) signatures of the witnesses in attendance - so he was miracled into this world.

This is a horribly conceived bill. It was designed to flush out Obama for only providing an "abstract" birth certificate form, but would not only seem to flush out people born in places that don't issue "photostatic" long form birth certificates, but anyone born in Louisiana. If this bill passes and isn't struck down, Jindal (born in Louisiana) might not be able to get his name on the ballot in Louisiana if he runs for Congress or President/Vice President. How's that for irony?”

    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.
