Have you seen the Bobby Jindal for President announcement video?  The video presents Governor Jindal as a change-agent.  According to his campaign:

What would happen if we elected a President who was unafraid to speak the hard truths, and who had the horsepower to tackle complicated problems? What if we elected a conservative who has the courage to make the big urgent changes?

We tried it the other way, and look where it has got us.

What if we tried something different?

Let's endorse our own conservative principles, and not back down.

If you watch one video this week, make sure it is this one:



A video that is not very flattering to either Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal or a candidate vying for his seat, US Senator David Vitter, was announced last week equating Jindal to Vitter,   

BATON ROUGE, LA --- On the eve of Bobby Jindal’s long-awaited presidential announcement, eight years in the making, Gumbo PAC has released a new video today highlighting that Louisiana is in for more of the same if David Vitter becomes the next governor.

“It’s like crawfish and cold beer, some things in Louisiana just go together. That includes DavidVitter and Bobby Jindal,” said Gumbo PAC Chairman Trey Ourso. “The same my-way-or-the-highway approach won’t get us out of the mess Bobby Jindal has left Louisiana in.”

“Both Bobby Jindal and David Vitter were staunch supporters of Common Core before flipping for political reasons. They both owe their allegiance to the same Washington lobbyist. And Jindal andVitter both promised to focus on their current political job, but instead are off campaigning for a new one,” Ourso continued. “The only difference between the two seems to be that David Vitter comes with more baggage.”

“If you like Bobby Jindal’s politics, you’ll just love David Vitter,” said Ourso.

Gumbo PAC is not affiliated with any candidate or political party.


Governor Jindal might not have wanted the type of publicity he received after his presidential candidacy announcement.  But, leave it to Jon Stewart to throw arrows.  A video you won't want to miss.


David Vitter has been creating a political personam as a man who won't chicken out.  However, the day after the US Supreme Court ruling legaling same sex marriages, he reportedly did take out chicken, from the controversial Fil-A-Chick and then posted the image on his twitter account.  Good idea?

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.
