WESThe "Take a Knee" conflict that has developed between the NFL, NFL owners, NFL players and President Donald Trump and his supporters has sent shock waves and anger throughout America over the issue of whether the players and the league are being unAmerican and unpatriotic. 

bishopThe issue surrounding the Kaepernick-Trump-National Anthem-NFL and locally, the New Orleans Saints continues to swirl like a storm hitting a Caribbean Island today.

havard perkinsPresident Donald Trump has hit a nerve that could hit some NFL owners in the pocketbook. His comments about the National Anthem and the American Flag has send shockwaves and clarion calls across the NFL nation. Communities all over are beginning to question the wisdom of helping to help subsidize National Football League teams.   Much of the outrage against the popular American sport is in response to the NFL’s action this weekend of “taking a knee”.

treasurer mayorHow might  the New Orleans elections, particularly, the New Orleans Mayor’s race impact the upcoming Louisiana Treasurer’s race, with the elections being held the same day?

This is a question I asked Southern Media and Opinion Research’s President, pollster and political analyst Bernie Pinsonat earlier this week during a Facebook Live video discussion.

angelle davisYesterday, this site asked if anybody knows that Louisiana is in the middle of a Treasurer’s race.  In part one of an ongoing interview with Southern Media and Opinion Research, its President Bernie Pinsonat said for various reasons he finds it difficult to believe any of the polls so far.

 

In general, there are four candidates who have chances to be in the runoff, three Republicans and one Democrat. The three republicans are Neil Riser, John Schroder, Angele Davis. The sole Democrat with any chance is Derrick Edwards.

pinsonat homeDoes anybody know there's a treasurer's race here in Louisiana to replace the last-elected official in that office, now US Senator, John Kennedy?

Yep. There is one, there is. And for the most part, right now, it's somewhat of a secret, not that the candidates are keeping it so, as of now.

Long before he took an oath of office to serve first in the Louisiana Legislature and later in the U.S. Senate, Bill Cassidy took the Hippocratic Oath.

But one would never know that from the abomination called the Cassidy-Graham Bill that, if passed would replace the Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare.

If Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy hadn’t realized it after a decade in politics, he knows it now: these people aren’t your allies, much less your friends.
