Louisiana Group Upset At Jindal Pushes Palin's Book

An Organization called S.A.V.E LA is urging Louisiana and Americans to attend Governor Palin's book signings with proceeds going to Louisiana higher education.

In what might be a "political one-upmanship" between two rising political stars or perhaps "Who can sell the most political books before Christmas or the GOP national convention"  or perhaps even "hitting where it hurts in one's own back yard", the action clearly appears to be an orchestrated swipe at Governor Jindal.  It might also be the second of a round of national political snipes between the two republicans governors or some say Presidential hopefuls.


On Meet the Press this Sunday, Governor Jindal was asked  questions about Palin's candidacy for president and her ability to unify the republicans, Jindal acknowledged Palin's strengths but made certain that the public knew that there are other well qualified potential candidates and that he favored governors being president. 

Did he have anyone in mind?


A S.A.V.E. L.A. press release today said, "Yesterday evening, it was reported in the Baton Rouge Advocate that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal does not plan to meet with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin when she appears at two book signings in Baton Rouge next week for her latest work, “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag”.  This came one day before we announced Saving American Values by Educating Louisiana “(S..A.V.E. LA). 


We are asking Louisianans and Americans across the country to attend Governor Palin’s book signings and sell purchased autographed Palin books on Ebay with the proceeds being donated to Louisiana’s struggling universities in the face of Governor Jindal’s drastic cuts to higher education.  Will Governor Jindal reconsider meeting Governor Palin in the advent of this grassroots movement to save Louisiana higher education?


Advocate: Jindal has no plans to meet with Palin

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.
