Review: Louisiana Gov. Jindal's Book Posts Obama, Washington
Written by  stephen-sabludowsky

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's book is reportedly being released next week roughly two weeks after he finished touring the country helping Republican governors and state parties during the 2010 election.  

 

According to the Washington Post, the book's title is now "Leadership and Crises".  The book was set to be released in July but was pushed back and the subject matter apparently changed to be more current than the initial title called "Read  Hope, Real Change" which now includes Jindal's view on the BP oil spill.

Earlier this year, it was reported by CNN, "Regnery Publishing is postponing the release of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's upcoming book, 'Real Hope, Real Change,' at the request of Governor Jindal," said Marji Ross, president of the conservative publishing house.

'We understand and support the Governor's commitment to focus 150 percent of his attention on the BP oil spill and its impact on Louisiana and the Gulf Coast," she added.

Jindal's book spends "a significant portion of the book disparaging the federal government’s response to the spill. While Jindal isn’t always taking shots — he writes about growing up in Louisiana the son of immigrant parents, his Christian faith, his marriage and children — the book aims a good deal of criticism at Washington institutions", quotes the Washington Post

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.
