New Orleans quality of life worsening and Jefferson Parish so boring?

Well, not exactly.  It is accurate to say, based upon latest survey results, New Orleans quality of life has gone down statistically and Jefferson Parish, the city's suburb, favorables so high and static, that it is "boring", numbers-wise.

Send in the clowns on Nungesser-Villere Iraq circus

Iraqi oil scams, critical compliance audits, litigation over the misappropriation of public funds, questionable land deals, botched Wal Mart deal involving Bobby Jindal’s father-in-law.

They’re all just another day at the office for Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser.

At least they listened to this space and took another whack at it. But there’s no real evidence that the bill offered will provide any real benefits and threatens unseemly costs. Indeed, it heads in the wrong direction.

Huey Long would have been right in the middle of the current presidential election if he were still alive.  He began a legacy of a long list of Louisiana politicians who had national aspirations.  Later governors John McKeithen, Edwin Edwards, Buddy Roemer and Bobby Jindal all fell by the wayside in the quest for national office.

For the most part, the Lewandowski-Fields-Trump appears to be history.
What’s left will likely morph into a civil lawsuit or an apology or both.


The Flash appeared in India last week.

And I don’t mean the Marvel Super Hero or alter ego Barry Allen.

I mean Kate Middleton, who has officially branded herself now as a deranged serial flasher of lady parts and nether regions.

‘Religious freedom’ bill up in House
    Bossier City state Rep. Mike Johnson’s so-called “religious freedom” legislation passed in the Civil Law and Procedure Committee and will be considered on the House floor on Tuesday, April 19.
    The controversial bill passed out of committee with all Republicans voting for it, including Johnson and state Rep. Alan Seabaugh, and the three Democrats on the committee voting against it, including Shreveport state Rep. Sam Jenkins.

Debate over state Rep. Thomas Carmody’s HB 944 raises complex questions about who decides what historical monuments remain on public property. Ultimately, drawing upon first principles of American government resolves these.

The bill goes into greater detail than state Sen. Beth Mizell’s SB 276, but like it makes a state commission the arbiter of whether local governments may move or remove monuments dealing with historical events and people. Carmody’s bill presumes that any such structure in place for at least three decades a local government cannot move without the body’s approval.

State residents may disagree about their favorite sports team or politician, but there is little disagreement about the value of Confederate monuments. The vast majority of Louisiana residents agree that the controversial New Orleans monuments should not be taken down. At least that is the obvious conclusion from a new poll by the LSU Public Policy Research Lab.

Politics is a rich man’s game– a game of kings of industry and scions of wealthy bootleggers.  If you aren’t a king of industry or a bootlegger’s scion with money and you still want to be president, then you need to find a rich man to back you so that you can play the game.

One of the hot issues in the current session of the Louisiana Legislature, meeting at the state capitol in Baton Rouge, is the repeal of a law that currently mandates the wearing of a safety helmet when riding a motorcycle.  Proponents of such a repeal site “freedom of choice” concerns, saying it should be an individual decision as to whether to wear or not wear a helmet.  They say there should be no role for government to play in this decision.  And I sure agree that the issue is one of freedom of choice (but read on).
