Written by 

John GeorgesJohn Georges has decided not to run for Governor of the State of Louisiana.

According to Georges, the decision was made today.

Earlier this week, Bayoubuzz reported that due to positive poll results, he was seriously considering running for that position against Governor Bobby Jindal. 

He made the announcement on his Facebook page.

The Facebook page statement said:

"I have given the race for governor serious consideration and although our polling shows i would be able to give governor jindal a tough race, there is simply not enough time to organize a statewide campaign. I want to thanks all those who encouraged me to run for governor again. I believe i will be in a bettor position in four years. In the meantime i plan to continue to do my part by investing in Louisiana to create more jobs and supporting so many worthwhile causes in the communitly."

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.
