Louisiana Legislature Session: Christopher Tidmore LIVE

That Gov. John Bel Edwards endorsed sham “tax reform” in his

recent special session call becomes all the more apparent when another example surfaced of Louisiana’s subpar fiscal policy.

In the days prior to the session’s launch next week, the state announced Gameloft would close its New Orleans office, reneging on a deal to bring more jobs to the state. This meant it gave away nearly a million dollars over the past seven years to the gaming firm under the Digital Interactive Media and Software Tax Credit, or almost $25,000 per job created. The total amount actually comes close to $2 million, but the state plans on clawing back over half.

A friend of mine has just passed away today.  She was in her early nineties.

Pearl Marzoni was a wife, a mom, a friend and a wonderful ballroom dancer.  She was also instrumental in connecting me to my remarkable wife, Althea, also very talented on the ballroom dance floor.

Saints QB Drew Brees was the game’s MVP, throwing three touchdown passes, two to All-Pro Michael Thomas and one to TE Jimmy Graham, whom the Saints signed in March as a free agent. The defense held the Jags’ high-powered offense to its lowest scoring output of the season as Cameron Jordan and Ziggy Ansah, the former Lion signed as a free agent, sacked QB Blake Bortles six times. CB Malcolm Butler, another free agent pickup whom the Patriots benched in Super Bowl LII, intercepted Bortles twice.

nda2Are we seeing some trickle down Trump now with New Orleans's incoming Mayor, LaToya Cantrell?

Many of us have long stated that the President of the United States sets the agenda in government and ethics.  When Donald Trump refused to show his income taxes destroying a tradition set by modern presidential candidates, it opened the door for others in state and local government to refuse to share financial information unbound by law to disclose.

cantrell flagThe last Republican was elected Mayor of New Orleans in 1872. Since that time, there has been almost 150 years of domination by the Democratic Party in New Orleans. For at least the last 50 years, the city government policies enacted have been almost universally liberal. No doubt the decades of leftist government policies have contributed to the many problems that beset the city today.

The Orleans Saints on Sunday were on the wrong end of a play that will live forever in team infamy. Minnesota WR Stefon Diggs caught a desperation pass from Case Keenum and rambled 61 yards untouched into the end zone as time expired in a play that will be memorialized as maybe the greatest playoff moment ever. Long-time Kentucky fans immediately saw the parallels in Diggs’ catch that sends the Vikings into the NFC championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The play became the Saints’ Laettner Moment.

asher vikes2The New Orleans Saints are stepping up a notch tomorrow against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC playoff as they take on the 2nd seed team at the Vikes home field. Last week, the Saints played the Carolina Panthers who they had beaten twice during the season and they were playing at home in the Superdome. They were also healthier.

brett drewIf vengeance is a dish best served cold, the Saints’ next playoff game will be played in the right spot. The Accuweather forecast for Minneapolis and vicinity is for eight inches of snow late in the week followed by a high of zero and low of minus-14 on game day. If you’re thinking of attending, “put on two of everything,” as Jim Finks, the only man who ever headed up both franchises, would have advised.

According to radio and TV talk show host Eric Asher, the Saints have a good chance of winning their first playoff game since 2013. After all, they have played and beat the Panthers twice this year and they are playing at home. However, they just came off a losing performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and they are hurt.
