From two different worlds away, their fathers had always believed in the promise of America, and when they finally got the opportunity to study and work at an American university, they didn’t think twice. They packed up everything they had, and they flew across oceans to be here. They were both idealistic, young, brilliant, and full of ideas and ambition.
Once again, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, in his quest to become president of the United States, has made a statement expecting the world to simply accept the truth of his assertion simply because the statement is his.

US Presidential hopeful and current Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal issued the following statement today on the developing situation in Israel:
Maybe its the mysterious swamps or the grey-mossy bayous. Perhaps it’s the French-Spanish-Indian-African-English-Haitian bowl of voodoo gumbo that flavors our spirits.
Whatever the reasons, Louisiana has and still owns the title and deed to the Master of the Ripley's House of the Political "Believe it or Not".
