More Join "I'm with Mary" Landrieu Ads; Maness Fights Gators
Written by 

im-with-mary 1Today, Sen. Mary Landrieu launched the I'm with Mary campaign. Voters have already seen a crucial part of it, though: the TV ad featuring Boysie Bollinger supporting Sen. Landrieu due to her unique position as Chairman of the Senate Energy Committee.

 The campaign also features Wade Kodrin, a military veteran who moved to New Orleans to help rebuild homes after Katrina. Cherie Teamer, a spokeswoman for the Landrieu campaign said: "The I'm with Mary campaign reflects Mary's broad and deep support from people in Louisiana—Republicans, Democrats, Independents, men and women. Whether it is her successful efforts to create high-paying energy jobs, make flood insurance affordable or restore our coast, people know they can count on Mary to deliver for them when it matters the most."

One of Sen. Landrieu's opponents, Col. Rob Maness, just launched his own commercials on TV and radio. Instead of a shipyard magnate, Maness’s TV ad features an alligator, a metaphor for liberal politicians who "are willing to destroy every last vestige of our liberties and independence," according to Maness.

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.
