PERFECT DRIVE 1Our Louisiana Legislature loves to pass laws that restrict the behavior of the residents of our state. This increases the power of the “Nanny State” government and also brings in needed revenue for bureaucracies.

The latest effort is a bill to ban the use of a handheld cell phone in a vehicle. The bill will lead to a large fine on the first offense and an even larger one on the next offense.

trump china swampIf true, this one should be easy.

President Donald Trump, according to a variety of articles hitting the Internet ,is trying to help a Chinese telecom company ZTE in a controversial move given his prior statements about the Chinese’s business practices. The problem with this mystery transaction is that it might, and I say might, be totally unethical, if not, unlawful.

Did Governor John Bel Edwards and Jay Dardenne last week when play the "Nursing Home" Scare Card when they sent out notices to nursing home residents warning them of possible evictions.

It surely made a lot of noise and news in Louisiana and nationally as if the ceilings were collapsing on those least able to take care of themselves. Or, at least, that is what many of the Republicans and Conservatives are saying across the state. 

This was the topic of discussion in part two of the video interview with John Kay, Louisiana director of the Americans for Prosperity, a national conservative group.

john kay We have heard so much and so often in Louisiana that the legislators on the left cannot get along with those on the right. We read daily that Democrats and Republicans simply are acting as if they were in Washington DC rather than in Baton Rouge, that acrimony is the rule and cooperation, the exception.

benson letterIs Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards being fair or is he "over the top", scaring seniors with potential "kick-you-out-of-nursing-homes" letters as a result of the budget standoff with the Republican House of Representatives?  And why scare seniors, Governor Edwards, have you sent out contract-reduction letters to the Saints and the Pelicans?

mccain palin 4In his new book, The Restless Wave, and in an upcoming HBO documentary, U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) expressed regret about choosing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate. He claimed that former Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, a Democrat, would have been a better choice. McCain noted that his advisers convinced him not to choose the Democrat, so he picked the little known Alaska Governor.

la film 2The Purge, Class Rank, Greyhound, The Highwayman, Kevin Costner, Woody Harrelson—the Louisiana film industry and tax credits are signs that there’s plenty of shooting going on around the state.

As a result of the filming, jobs are being created.

Money makes Louisiana Nursing homes go around
Written by

money roundby Tom Aswell, Publisher of LouisianaVoice

If you like political posturing, puffery, bombast, and breast-beating, then the reaction to that LETTER being sent out to 37,000 nursing home patients in Louisiana is tailor-made for political junkies like you.

brown 78 4There is a disturbing article in a recent issue of Atlantic Magazine by a prominent physician at the University of Pennsylvania. Ezekiel J. Emanuel is an oncologist, a bioethicist, and a vice provost of the University, and is the author or editor of 10 books, including Reinventing American Health Care. So he is a bright guy who knows a lot about health. His premise is that no one, in this day and age, should aspire to live longer than 75 years of age.

 

 scalise flagNo Speaker of the House has come from Louisiana, although we have been close. There was Hale Boggs, who was pegged for that position before being killed in an airplane crash. Then, a casualty from the Monica Lewinsky days, Bob Livingston opted not to take the seat and instead, abruptly retired from Congress.

trump media credentials tweet 5A new report by the Media Research Center showed that during the first four months of 2018, the mainstream broadcast networks continued to display their hatred of President Trump as 90% of their coverage was negative. This continues the trend from the final quarter of 2017, when 91% of the Trump coverage was negative.  

mitch free 3I know that in some communities and in some circles, it is not politically-correct to say anything positive about now ex-New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

Ever since he fought the battle of the confederate monuments, to a large block of Louisiana voters, he has crossed the wrong side of the proverbial Mason Dixon line.  Even worse, he spent time at the Aspen Institute the weekend that the water pumps failed, causing significant damage to innocent people who entrusted him and city government to protect their properties from the wet.
