Jindal baits readers to Hillary Clinton book tips, then switches to donate page
Written by 

chickensoup-jindalLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who is either last or next to last in most Republican Presidential polls, has a new way to get attention, something he has sorely lacked since entering the campaign in June and which media focus he craves so he can make the first squad of candidates.

 

His campaign website has posted a satirical list of books tips for Hillary Clinton.

 On the “Gift Ideas for Hillary Clinton” include such hits as Chicken Soup for the Prisoner’s Soul,  The Middle East for Dummies, U.S. Constitution for Dummies, How to Be Likeable, Imagine: Living in a Socialist USA, Be Honest and Tell the Truth, How to Win Friends & Influence People, So You Want to Be President? 

Interestingly, if you want to order a book from the page, you can't despite the Add to Cart button.  However, if you do click on it, you will get a "donate" page" to the Jindal campaign.

Jindal is known for gimmicks.  Over the seven plus years of his administration, he has passed a budget full of gimmicks so he could claim to not raise taxes.  This year, however, he took gimmickry to the limits by promoting a bill that was resoundly panned as a guise to hide over $700 million dollars worth of taxes on businesses. 

Keeping with his spirit of transparency, a quality that has led Jindal to being being perhaps the most unpopular governor in the United States, here are two books you might consider ordering for your own reading.  

Who knows, perhaps, we can get Governor Jindal to sign them for you, if you promise to make a donation to his floundering campaign.

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.
