The important Iowa vote
    The Republican caucus vote in Iowa can sometimes make or break a candidate's bid for his or her party’s presidential nomination.  While it’s not the end-all for candidates, the vote gives an indication of who the front-runners are in the early stages of the campaign.

    The Iowa Caucus is tentatively scheduled for February 1, 2016, so there is still plenty of campaigning ahead for the presidential wannabes.
    Here is the latest poll, conducted last week by KBUR Radio of Burlington, Iowa:
    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker – 18%.
    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush – 12%.
    Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul – 10%.
    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee – 10%.
    Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio – 9%.
    Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz – 8%.
    Billionaire Donald Trump – 7%.
    Retired Neurosurgeon Ben Carson – 5%.
    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie – 5%.
    Former PA U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum – 4%.
    Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry – 4%.
    Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina – 3%.
    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal – 2%.
    Ohio Gov. John Kasich – 1%.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
