Louisiana US Senate Election: Traylor, Vitter And Prayers
Written by 

steve_sabludowsky01After the Washington DC Madam case made headlines, after the admission of sin, when Louisiana Senator David Vitter said he prayed for forgiveness after the revelation--many  followers of that story said that Vitter didn’t have a prayer to win re-election.

After today’s bombshell news, that the former Louisiana Supreme Court Justice, Chet Traylor a Republican   candidate  for  U.S. Senate allegedly had interfered with the marriage of a current member of the House of Representatives and is now having some  type of relationship  with his now deceased wife’s son’s ex-wife, there is only one thing to say.

When Vitter prayed back then, somebody up there absolutely listened.

I am now convinced that some angel up in heaven or perhaps someone of an even higher rank is pulling the strings down here and  is in charge of  Vitter’s career and this political race.

So this is the  news story that everyone seems to be talking about.  And here is the important stuff—hold on:

“State Rep. Noble Ellington, D-Winnsboro, said that Traylor was “significantly involved” in the cause of his divorce from Peggy McDowell, who later married Chet Traylor and became McDowell Traylor....

Traylor is also currently involved in a romantic relationship with Denise Lively, the estranged wife of his stepson, Ryan Ellington, the son of Noble Ellington.”

Pray, tell.  And Traylor was the voice on the court against Sodomy?  And, Traylor is a family values  candidate?

Assuming the truth of this shocking article which now is making the national news big time and even the Guinness Book of Records of bizarre elections, one would have to wonder, what the heck was Traylor thinking of when he dissed Vitter after the former Judge recently qualified for office.  Didn’t he know that this story and his personal life would come out in  public?

My gosh, my former law professors couldn’t make up a crazier hypothetical example on a final exam than what we are seeing in this Louisiana election for one of two top national seats in government.    If they did, nobody would pass the test.  We would all be laughing too much to concentrate on the exam.

We will wait to see what occurs over the next couple of days or even next couple of weeks to this Louisiana’s edition of Peyton Place.

If the story is fact true as has been reported, I can only pray the Louisiana Supreme Court doesn’t hear these type of stranger-than-fiction cases daily so that they are immunized from all sense of reality.

Then again, perhaps I should not be praying for our Supreme Court Justices at all.  After all, I'd bet my lunch that the Supremes up there above the clouds are already too busy.  I have no doubt that someone up there very important has heard Senator Vitter’s prayers and is now running this election. 

Does family values mean anything in today's political arena?  Talk about it below

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.
