This past week, Louisiana has been involved in an insipid debate relating to hurricane recovery and political grandstanding. Unfortunately, we all have been a loser in this exchange.
There is an upcoming dispute that is many times more serious. This future deliberation will have serious impact upon tens of thousands of Louisiana citizens--much more than last week's pitiful PR contest on display on TV and social media. At that time, we discussed which presidential candidate did what and whether our president could see beyond the 18th-hole.
The Louisiana Flood crisis could be more serious than our trying to rebuild our homes, businesses and maintaining our collective sanities.
The United States debt is approaching 20 billion. Louisiana treasury is bone dry. Taxes is not an option.
Here’s twitter twats, or, better said, some "believe it or nots" of the hard-to-believe-Presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as seen on twitter.
Below is a video I created (with short commentary) of some of the interesting campaign related tweets regarding the elections.
A new republican attack against Hillary Clinton. Who’d thunk it?
Members of Congress want the US Department of Justice to investigate Hillary Clinton’s alleged lying to Congress regarding her testimony she gave before Congress. A letter has been released to support their claims https://oversight.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/2016-08-15-JEC-BG-to-Phillips-USAO-DC-Perjury-Investigation.pdf
It is now a given that Donald Trump is struggling in the polls. This weekend, the conservative Wall Street Journal, in an editorial urged Trump to change or drop out. Candidates down ticket are becoming very concerned. So are various Republican consultants.
If you want to see how the Dukies are dominating twitter-sphere, simply look at the current tweets coming into the popular Louisiana U.S. Senate race twitter tag, #lasen.
Tweets blasting Colonel Rob Maness, calling him a globalist because he fought terrorists.
No doubt, the Republican Party has dominated Congressional elections since 2010 and it appears it just might not do so again in 2016.
If you think “data” and Republican Party, think Chris Wilson, the CEO of Wilson, Perkins and Allen, a national campaign data firm.
Wilson is the former Director of Research, Analytics and Digital Strategy for the 2016 Ted Cruz Presidential Campaign. That campaign was the most data analytics-driven of all republican political campaigns in American history.
Ok folks, time to get serious.
I know that the Trump campaign wants America and the world to believe that the media is biased, the polls are in cahoots with the media and that the system and the election, are rigged.
I know it wants to believe that the shadows of globalism are controlling our strings.
That’s what Congressman Charles Boustany is doing by claiming that Treasurer John Kennedy, leader in the U.S. Senate race, is advocating increase in taxes for horizontal drilling.
