Should any of the projected $6.7B dollars that Louisiana anticipates be used for the general funds now that the BP oil spill settlement has been agreed upon, subject to court approval?

It looks like it’s time to get out the soap powder in Louisiana. Some elected officials and the state’s largest newspaper are jumping all over themselves to call for the banishment of whatever tattered remnants are left from the aftermath of the Civil War. Not just flags, but monuments, names, Dukes of Hazzard, Aunt Jemima syrup, Uncle Ben’s rice, Gone with the Wind, they all gotta go. The cultural cleansing in the Bayou state has begun.
Idiots. Fully retards. What’s next, Pull, Confederacy of Dunces from the Book Store?

Governor Bobby Jindal has received his share of criticism since first declaring his campaign for US President. His Youtube family video where he and his wife Supriya told their kids of their decision for him to run for president came off in the media like a tree-falling-thud. His twitter #askbobby also backfired with the twittersphere taunting him on a host of issues.
The unfolding tragi-comedy known as the Bobby Jindal campaign just keeps getting weirder but it’s hard to imagine it getting any creepier than his crude re-creation of America’s Funniest Videosepisode in which he attempts to exploit his children—except it wasn’t really funny.
Republican Presidential candidate and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has condemned the Louisiana ACLU for riling a lawsuit challenging his executive order on religious liberty.
When Donald Trump announced for President, he made some strong statements about the immigration problems facing our nation. He said that Mexico was “bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people." In essence, Trump noted that Mexico was not sending their scientists and scholars to America.
