Poll: Your feelings about the Steve Scalise-David Duke controversy?
 

capitol-dcThe recent controversy involving Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise, David Duke and his associates have engendered much controversy, and media attention, as the United States Congress begins its work for 2015. After the news story broke, Scalise admitted that his attendance at the 2002 event held at the Landmark Hotel in Metairie Louisiana was a mistake.

 However, despite the admission, some believe that there are some unanswered questions regarding his actual knowledge of the event. Then there are some who feel that the outrage over the controversy is totally manufactured, primarily by those on the political left and some in the media.  Then, there are some who feels that Scalise knew more about the event involving David Duke and his associate Kenny Knight and is not disclosing what he knew and what he currently remembers.

The criticism of the majority House Whip is not limited to Democrats, some in the media and many on the left. Fox News Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin and others have been highly critical of  Scalise. 

While Scalise is a much more recognizable political figure lately, he does have the support of Speaker John Boehner and many Republicans and even some Democrats in the U.S. Congress.

How do you feel about the controversy?  Please take the poll and feel free to forward to your friends and contacts.  We will be releasing results at the end of this week.

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.
