Dardenne talks Louisiana budget, Jindal, Coastal Restoration, Elections
 

jeff-dardenneOn the first day of qualifying for the position of Louisiana governor, Jeff Crouere, radio talk show host for WGSO Radio 990 AM, interviewed Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne. 

 

Among issues discussed were the significant and uncertain budget hole from this spring’s legislative session, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s inattentiveness to Louisiana as he runs for President, the prospects that some or much of the revenues raised from the session might be deemed by the courts to be unconstitutionally generated.  

In addition, Crouere and Dardenne discussed the recent trickery used by Jindal and the legislature to stay within the demands of Grover Norquist’s "no tax" pledge, the BP Oil Spill settlement money and the concerns that this one-time money will be used for general fund rather than for necessary coastal restoration.

Last, Crouere and Dardene discussed the public's lack of focus upon the upcoming governor's elections

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.
