vitter jindalIt is any wonder that David Vitter is now behind in the race for Governor of Louisiana. The candidate who was long ago declared by the so-called experts to be our next Governor is in real trouble eight days before the election. He is in the political fight of his life and he has no one to blame but himself.

Jon Bel Edwards puts lawyers, unions first
Written by

michelleBy Melissa Landry, Louisiana Lawsuit Abuse Watch


Recognizing that Louisiana is a ruby red conservative state, Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Bel Edwards has frequently sought to attract crossover Republican voters by distancing himself from President Barrack Obama and national Democrats claiming he would bring a centrist approach to the governor’s mansion. Edwards desperately wants voters to believe he is a moderate who will “put Louisiana first.” But his history as a state lawmaker suggests he’s likely to behave differently. In fact, Edwards’ record shows his priorities and values are far closer the job-killing special interest groups bankrolling his campaign than they are to those held by most mainstream Louisiana voters.

Edwards vs. Vitter elections: Early voting shows greater black, democratic leading voters
Written by

couvillon blabIn what could be a rather surprising development, according to Pollster John Convillon of JMC Analytics, the Louisiana runoff appears to be generating more interest from those who are democratic-leaning and African-American.

Convillon, who previously polled Edwards with a twenty-point lead over David Vitter in the Louisiana governor's race has released his second report concerning early voters, that could portend what could happen election day, NNovember 21. 

  • 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

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.
