Jindal blasts Obama over Gulf revenue sharing proposal
 

jindal-inaugAs if Louisiana needs any more financial wallops that could hurt its ability to fund governmental projects or that could hamper its economic growth.  However, in a budgetary move that could hurt oil and gas industry and the State of Louisiana (which fought hard for revenue sharing of energy revenue) the Obama administration is favoring legislation that would drain Louisiana and three other Gulf states for redirect future oil and natural-gas drilling revenues.  

The shift would boost "clean energy" industry efforts and hurt the oil and gas industry.

Governor Bobby Jindal issued the following statement on President Obama's plan to scrap offshore revenues:

Governor Jindal said, "President Obama and his administration are threatening to turn their backs on Louisiana, the Gulf Coast and thousands of jobs with this unprecedented move. Scrapping offshore revenue would be a huge detriment to state wetlands and our coast — areas that have been continuously ransacked by tropical storms and hurricanes.  Our voters in Louisiana overwhelmingly supported a constitutional amendment to dedicate all future offshore energy revenues to coastal restoration and hurricane protection projects in Louisiana’s master plan because we have seen the immediate effects of these storms. That’s why I made it a top priority to work on coastal protection and these offshore revenues in Congress, and we included it in our energy policy plan for America. Additionally, this move will discourage offshore energy production — making America more dependent on hostile foreign regimes for energy while denying the American people the benefits of energy abundance. Energy production and coastal restoration will continue to be top priorities for us here in Louisiana, and we hope Congress and the Louisiana delegation stand up against this President and his leftist agenda."

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.
