jay morrisDuring the last precious hours of the Louisiana legislative special session--called earlier this year, by Governor John Bel Edwards--to address an historical budget crises, it appeared that the governing process would close to a crashing halt of failure.

brokeYou just have to love Louisiana politics.

It’s kind of like having someone pee down your back while telling you it’s raining.

Or maybe trying to run a marathon with a rock in your shoe.

Talk show host Glenn Beck has compared the Republican frontrunner to Hitler, while Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse has thundered that he will never support Trump if he is the nominee.

Is the LSU a Tiger, or a quitter?
Written by

TIGER 2Is LSU a quitter? When the pressures mount, and things just don’t go as planned, are there too many instances where the state’s flagship university seems to walk away and pull the plug, with the hopes that the problem will just go away? I have written a number of columns over the years about the highs and lows of the state’s flagship university and how, in the academic world, the administration has thrown good people under the bus. But I never thought I would see the day when a Tiger athletic team just gave up and quit.

lagopThe Louisiana legislature was presented with good and pretty bad news at the same time.  The Revenue Estimating Conference determined in its meeting that Louisiana is not $30 milliion in the hole for this year, but $70 million.  On the other hand, it found that the shortfall for next fiscal year is better than expected.

As a result, Governor John Bel Edwards released this statement:

 

 

pinochioDonald Trump, the GOP-likely nominee, made his way into the hearts and minds of millions this past nine months (or) because he is a brash man, who exudes power and confidence, won’t back down or apologize and is willing to say what he means, about anything, at any time.

Henceforth, 53 more officers would be involved in active patrols instead of desk work.  Also, with additional police recruits finishing training, there was some hope that the NOPD numbers would be bolstered enough to reduce the surging New Orleans crime rate.

The fiscal special session to raise revenues mercifully ended last week. Many individual and business taxpayers were left dangling in the wind as their financial futures were debated ad nauseam. It was chaotic and controversial, filled with enough name-calling and finger-pointing to ensure everyone received some of the blame and none of the credit for its outcome.

Not-so-special session
    For the 29 new members of the House and the 11 new Senate members, it was a baptism by legislative fire.  The recent Special Session of the Louisiana Legislature was not a pleasant experience for the newcomers, nor was it a lot of fun for veteran lawmakers.
