Louisiana’s Governor’s Race: Edwards Vs. Jindal, Pardon Me?
Written by 

Edwards
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 7, 2011--THE POLL CLOSED...SEE THE RESULTS IN LOWER LEFT CORNER

The final tally:

Former Governor, Edwin W. Edwards 1766 votes

Current  Govenor Bobby Jindal 723 votes

Someone else or won't vote 123



According to WWL radio, there is a movement towards trying to get President Obama to pardon Edwin Edwards so he can run for Governor.


Currently, there is no Democrat running against Governor Bobby Jindal, although there have been rumors of various individuals contemplating the possibility.


WWL’s website says in part: An effort is underway to get a presidential pardon for Edwin Edwards. It's happening on-line as the first step of the process aiming to allow the federal felon to run for governor again.

"I really feel that if I did run, I would be able to get elected," Edwards proclaimed. Edwards was asked, "If you had to opportunity would you do it?" "Yes!" was his emphatic reply.

So, would it be a good idea for major Democrat officials or members of that political party to attempt to obtain a pardon for Edwards? If he were pardoned, would you vote for him against Governor Jindal?

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.
