Karen Carter Peterson or Republican Party: the cry of Obamacare, racism
Written by 

peterson-obamacare-racistThe Louisiana Sen. Karen Carter Peterson Obamacare controversy, in which she that the opponents to Obamacare in Louisiana are motivated by race has not only made big news statewide but nationally.

 

 

The Louisiana Republican Party and Gov. Bobby Jindal, though to have had their share of difficulties these two months of the Louisiana legislative session, have seized on the opportunity created by Peterson with her statement last week in front of the Louisiana Senate.

There are many questions related to this current controversies: how will it affect the Democrats chances to regain power in an already raw-red republican state? What were some of the short-term effects? Did the Republican Party store the controversy, play the race card of its own and in doing so fan the flames of race animosities? Also, since the Republicans have been asking Mary Landrieu whether she supports the Peterson statement, what should the Louisiana Democratic senator do in light of this controversy. Landrieu has already been considered to be very vulnerable this election season. She is running for reelection next year?

Bayoubuzz.com publisher Stephen Sabludowsky, Jim Brown and Jeff Crouere discussed some of these issues and more in a recent Google hangout.

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.

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.
