Blazing Jindal: Louisiana Governor Speaks God and Country

Stephen SabludowskyThe culture of Bobby Jindal.

In an Wednesday interview with “The Blaze” a media entity associated with Glenn Beck, Louisiana Governor Jindal discussed the social, religious and cultural underpinnings of America.  

The governor also discussed republican politics.

Of pertinent note, Jindal, in praising this country, said that in America, “it doesn’t matter what your last name is”. 

This is quite an interesting comment considering that Jindal is an Indian-American going by “Bobby” rather than his given name, Piyush.  

Jindal also criticized those who he claims are not in favor of immigrants assimilating American values--meaning "liberals".  

Of particular interest, Jindal also believes that America is “exceptional” that is, the country has been blessed by God more than the other nations.  He said, “I do think we have been blessed, I do think it is providential”.  In referring to America, the governor also said he thinks that “the freedom is a gift from God” but that we need to preserve what has made America so great and that has been our culture”.

While I do believe in God, honestly, anytime a politician talks about the Lord determing the fate of a nation, and favoring it over another or others, I think about those people who claimed that God punished New Orleans for its “debauchery” and even because of its gay population and so therefore sent Katrina its way.

Jindal also says he loves democracy, the free market economy and the strong military.  However, according to Jindal, “that’s not what’s make America great.  What essentially makes America great is our culture.”

This also is a surprise to me as I always believed that the corner stone of American greatness has been our belief in democracy, our preference for free enterprise and these political and economic cornerstones have been preserved by those men and women who have put their lives at risk.

At the interview's end, Jindal was asked once again about his political career but this time, he was asked about Michael Steele, the Republican Party national chairman.

Jindal again said it is not time to discuss people but principles.  However, he did once again say he prefers governors, administrators, budget balancers in these offices.

Once again, whom does he have in mind?

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.
