Louisiana US Senate prediction, US Congress: Seeing red
Written by 

capitol-dc Quite often I am asked whom do I believe will when the U.S. Senate race. At this point in time, while I am not backing any particular candidate, I believe that Congressman Bill Cassidy will either do much better tomorrow than anticipated or will be within a percentage point or so of Senator Landrieu.  I would not be surprised if Cassidy were able to pull off an open primary victory while I do not expect the Democratic senator to win heads-up.

While Tea Party candidate Rob Maness has run a good campaign considering his total lack of name and face recognition going into the contest, I would be very surprised if he were able to amass support exceeding single digits. 

When we wake up Wednesday morning, or when we go to bed Tuesday night, we will learn the Republicans have claimed control of the US Senate or they have fifty seats.  

Will my predictions ring true?

With mid-term elections always favoring the party out of power, with President Obama’s popularity in the tubes, with the party’s candidates doing relatively well with women voters and with the young voters being uninspired and feeling their votes do not matter, the GOP will end the election season, whether it be tomorrow night or December or January, with control over the US Congress.

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.
