catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.

There is no politically correct way to explain it. Donald Trump blew his chance in a big way.  He seemed to be on a roll, rising in the presidential preference polls and talking about issues other Republican candidates were ducking.  Here in Louisiana, he hit a responsive cord when few other presidential wanabes had the gumption to show any backbone, particularly on curtailing illegal immigration.  But then, his mouth got in the way.

DUMP-TRUMP 6Donald Trump has been the talk of the town, the discussion on TV, the concern of the Republican Party, the target of Democratic attacks and ridicule.  Yet, the candidate is sitting on top of the polls of 16 Republican candidates.  When Trump makes an inflammatory remark, he gets inundated with criticism from the media and others, but then the media pursue him as the go-to-guy on the breaking issues.

McCainTo no one’s surprise, U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) announced his intention to run for re-election. After a distinguished military career and 5 ½ years as a POW in Vietnam, McCain retired from the military and entered politics. McCain was initially elected to the House of Representatives in 1982, followed by his first Senate election in 1986. Since his initial election to the Senate, McCain has won re-election four times.   

For John McCain, 34 years in Congress will not be enough, so he wants another six years as U.S. Senator. In fact, he told one reporter that his Senate career was “just getting started.” If elected again, McCain will be 86 at the end of his next term.
