The political termites are swarming into Louisiana. They are coming from everywhere; north and south-east and west. All with one purpose in mind. The want to tell us whom we should vote for as the state’s next U.S. Senator. I don’t know about you, but I get sick and tired of all these out-of-stators who must think we are too dumb down here in Bayou country to make up our own minds.
If the polls are right, Louisiana voters are on the verge of throwing long time politician U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) a retirement party on December 6. Her opponent Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-Baton Rouge) is comfortably ahead as the run-off draws to a close and has been continually blasting the incumbent as a clone of the unpopular President Barack Obama.
The fate of Mary Landrieu and the Louisiana US Senate race is now two weeks away and is interrupted by Thanksgiving holiday season and then Christmas festivities. From all indications, Bill Cassidy, her opponent has a commanding lead. But, Mary Landrieu has made some strong comebacks in the past, so can she do it again?
We’re two days from Thanksgiving and one month from Christmas. Tis the season to get Merry. To help us, here are some press releases concerning special holiday events:

If anything at all can be taken from the 100-plus pages of grand jury testimony of Bruce Greenstein, it’s that Greenstein’s memory lapses and his reluctance to adequately answer repeated questions about his role in the awarding of a major contract to his former bosses taxed the patience of members of the grand jury who were forced to listen to his verbal sparring with prosecutors for hours on end.
Black Friday is upon us and consumer confidence is higher than it has been for a few years. So, hey big spenders, are you ready to join the spending revolution, off and online?
If you are in Louisiana, compared to the rest of the country, you’re a middler—21st in total spending, not just for holiday gifts but for just about everything.
In the latest finding from WalletHub, which state leads the nation in spending?
Mississippi. Louisiana’s neighbor. The state that normally competes with Louisiana for being last in most good lists and first in those bad lists is ranked first, in spending.
Two major issues today—Barack Obama’s executive order and the upcoming US Senate race.
