Gingrich’s Wife, Perry’s Exit and Jindal’s Choice
Written by 

rick-perryWith less than 48 hours from the Republican primary in South Carolina, political bombs are a-falling. 

Rick Perry, the Texas Governor drops out of the race, backing former House Speaker, Newt Gingrich.


Tonight, right before the next televised GOP debate, Gingrich will be the focus as ABC-TV releases an interview with his former wife casting even further doubt about the speaker’s family-values.  

Also, news reports claim that Rick Santorum actually beat Mitt Romney in Iowa casting doubts upon Romney’s invincibility.

Which means the GOP candidate field has shriveled down to four major candidates—Romney, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and once-again fast-climbing Gingrich.

So, what does this mean for Louisiana Republicans and for this state?

Perhaps much depends upon what Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal might do now that he is no longer Rick Perry’s super voice.

Months ago, right when Rick Perry announced that his Presidential run, Jindal jumped upon his bandwagon.  Weeks later, Perry became an “oops” asterisk after that infamous TV debate moment.

Now, Jindal, who picked the wrong political horse must decide if and when he is going to climb on the campaign trail again.  

Given his national ambitions, the answer to “if” is a no-brainer, of which Jindal certainly possesses abundance.

Thus, the real issue for Jindal and to some extent that of the state he governs is—whom?

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.
