Louisiana Gov. Jindal Responds To Supreme Court's Decision To Decide Healthcare Law
Written by 

jindal-differenceGovernor Bobby Jindal pulled no punches as he released the following statement today on the United States Supreme Court’s decision to review President Obama’a  healthcare law. The Supreme Court will hear the lawsuit brought by 26 states, including the State of Louisiana.

  “We’re pleased that the Supreme Court has decided to take up the state’s lawsuit and we look forward to the Court’s action to stop the unconstitutional expansion of the federal government.

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.
