“Used to getting its way with state lawmakers, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration has been smacked with a reminder that budget negotiations might take a bit more nuance with the types of hefty cuts looming.”

Analysis: La. lawmakers strike independent chord

“If Gov. Jindal is out trying to get fiscally conservative citizens into national politics, I would consider him a statesman, not one shirking his duties. Louisiana is but one compartment on the ship of state. If the ship sinks, we go down with it, even if we have the best schools in the country.”

Letter: Jindal's travel, education cuts


Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will charge supporters $5,000 for a duck hunting fundraiser.

For $5,000 per person, guests will also enjoy a “camaraderie/social” dinner and brunch following the hunt. Jindal is shown here with one of his fellow duck hunters.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, 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.
