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.

I have a sad announcement to make.  Politics is just no fun anymore in Louisiana.

Reams of books have been written about the colorful characters that ran the Bayou state throughout its history.  And the average citizen got involved, attended rallies and actively supported their candidate of choice.  Few states could match the intensity and enthusiasm that was a part of Louisiana campaigning. The state’s two favorite pastimes were LSU football and Politics.

Jindal speaks language of government control

jindal-portrait1My Louisiana governor has me puzzled again in his quixotic quest to be a player on the national stage.  I thought Bobby Jindal was part of a Republican Party that tells government to get off our backs and mind its own business.  But he now is apparently on a national pursuit to make us all homogeneous in how we act, live and speak.  And when you come from Louisiana, he’s walking a slippery slope of being way too politically correct.

In the four years of our existence, LouisianaVoice has poked fun at, criticized, questioned and challenged Gov. Bobby Jindal on a number of issues and finally, it has come down to the harsh reality that forces us to say what we have refrained, out of respect for the office, from saying thus far:

Bobby Jindal is a fool.

jimmiedavis03,To many electoral observers across the country, Louisiana is the center of the political universe.  Nowhere is there such a concentration of political interest – right?  Wasn’t it a Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives who said if you want to get a graduate degree on successful politics, go down to Louisiana?  And who can forget former Governor Earl Long’s final wish on his deathbed:  “Or Lord, when I die, bury me in Louisiana so I can stay active in politics.”  There’s more interest and participation in political campaigns in Louisiana than in any other place in the country.  Or is there?

The news just keeps getting worse for Superintendent of Education John White.

louisiana-washington-wayLouisiana is known for its colorful political characters. From Huey Long to Edwin Edwards, the state has produced more than its fair share of political rogues. From corruption to sex scandals, the state’s politicians seem to be unable to stay out of the headlines for the wrong reasons.

campaign-cash2013 is now history and 2014 provides great promise and opportunities.  The new year also means politics galore throughout the nation with mid-term elections.   One of those races, the US Senate race for a seat currently held by Democrat Mary Landrieu, is expected to be at center stage as the Republicans try to take control of the Senate.

The political scene has plenty to discuss today as the oil and gas industry has filed suit against Louisiana AG Buddy Caldwell, the Democratic Party (at least throughout the nation, but likely not in Louisiana) seem to support Democrats handling much of government, except for the all-important economy and Tea Party favorite Rob Maness has taken a shot against his competition Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy on the flood insurance disaster issue.
