Please keep this quiet; a secret election is set for Saturday May 2 in 28 Louisiana parishes. Politicians set the election on a day in which turnout will be minimal. In New Orleans, a tripling of the library millage is on the ballot during the second weekend of the Jazz Fest, at a time guaranteed to produce a very low turnout. Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler predicted a turnout in “the teens” on May 2. Of course, this is pitiful and goes against our beliefs in encouraging robust voter participation. It seems the last thing Louisiana politicians want is a strong voter turnout.
Due to the 22nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution, President Obama is barred from serving a third term as President. This is a godsend since our country may not survive another four years of Barack Obama in the White House. Fortunately, more Americans are realizing the damage he has done to our country. This explains why his approval numbers are mired in the low 40's and the prospects for the Democrat Parity in the mid-term elections are not very rosy.
First Lady Michelle Obama is not content nagging Americans about their food choices. She has now decided to lecture us about our word usage. Along with pop star Beyonce and actress Jennifer Garner among others, the First Lady is urging Americans to ban the word “bossy.” She believes that use of the word somehow inhibits young girls from becoming leaders.
President Barack Obama is accustomed to receiving awards he does not deserve. In fact, the President received the ultimate award in November of 2008.
Yesterday, the President officially began his second term, but only after committing another mistake in reciting the oath of office. Four years ago, the culprit was Chief Justice John Roberts, who flubbed the wording of the oath. This time, Roberts recited the correct words, but the President was unable to properly enunciate the phrase “United States.”
What is the world coming to? Just ten days after Barack Obama was re-elected, Europe is now in the midst of another recession, our stock market has tanked and unemployment claims have skyrocketed.
Which candidate would be a better president for U.S. women--Obama or Romney?
The democrats believe they have the “leg up” on women’s issues claiming Romney has flip-flopped all over the place on the issue of “choice” with his now saying he is solidly pro-life although admittedly being pro-choice before being pro-life.
