Bernie Pinsonat and SMOR has just released its annual spring Louisiana Poll which focused upon the increasingly-important Louisiana US Senate race—the election in which incumbent Senator Mary L. Landrieu faces a number of republican candidates.
A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day
On 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?
As 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.
II 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.
To 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.
