Written by 

jeffcrouere_150_200Good morning and welcome to Ringside. Did you hear? Michelle Obama is coming now to the Gulf Coast. So all your fears can wash away…..never mind. So what good does this visit do when red tape is still getting in the way? Meanwhile, Governor Bobby Jindal is practically screaming at the federal government. Great talk, but so far the governor isn’t walking the walk. The stage is set now for David Vitter vs. Charlie Melancon and questions have been spurned by Vitter on the persisting questions of his now fired controversial staffer. And just what’s going on in the Department of Justice? A voter intimidation case where intentions were clear has now been tossed out by this administration. Reverend James David Manning is at it again as he has some very pointed words as usual for President Barack Obama.

Anthony Marchese, Congressional candidate joins the show from the newly formed Christian party to discuss his platform and some of the issues he will be tackling in the race. Mr. Marchese will be running against Joseph Cao and Cedric Richmond, but he discusses the reasons why he is running this race.

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.
