Felicisimo Limon is one of the “students” of “Trump University” who is suing, claiming that he was ripped off. He appeared today on CNN’s show, “Trump University Battle,” wearing a bright yellow polo shirt with black horizontal bands that made him look like a giant bumblebee.
Who’s the chicken, the Louisiana legislators or the governor?
The Louisiana legislative session is melting down to its end with now-roughly $450 million dollars deficit needing to be filled. A special session has been called by the governor set immediately afterwards, to raise taxes to bring in the necessary money. The questions are--who’s going to be the brave and who’s going to chicken out?
In the latest poll results from the SMOR spring survey, commissioned by conservative businessman Lane Grigsby of Baton Rouge, Donald Trump has a firm grip on Louisiana in the Presidential contest.
Bill Kristol, the editor not the actor-comedian, has decided to derail Donald Trump’s Republican presidential bid by re-animating Dwight David Eisenhower– the only five-star general to ever become a U.S. President.
With roughly five months left to go into the Louisiana US Senate race, Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy and the Louisiana Republican Party are in the catbird seat.
This nation is very blessed to have founders as brilliant as Thomas Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of Independence, the document upon which this nation was established.
Along with the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence is considered one of our country’s founding documents. It has stood the test of time for 240 years.
With only one week left to go in Louisina legislative session and with Governor John Bel Edwards having called a special session to address the massive budget deficit facing the state, a survey has emerged showing that voters don't have much appetite increasing taxes again. The poll also shows that Governor John Bel Edwards's popularity has increased slightly with his negatives increasing more.
It’s a good thing requirements to take office as a Louisiana legislator do not include even a cursory knowledge of America’s founding as a sovereign state, for state Rep. Barbara Norton surely would have failed any such exam.

Some sobering jobs numbers were released this week.
The Houma-Thibodeaux area lost 4,600 jobs over the last 12 months. Lafayette is down 7,700 jobs and has entered its 15th consecutive month of job losses. New Orleans is down 2,400 jobs, and Shreveport-Bossier City has lost 3,500. Thankfully, Baton Rouge and Lake Charles’ job numbers are up, with Monroe and Alexandria holding steady.
Are the issues evolving around Donald Trump, less about what he says, per se, but more about the way he says it? Is this the reason that many across the US (and outside) are upset with The Donald and his policies, such as illegal immmigration and preventing Muslims from entering the US? Or, is Donald Trump is simply speaking his mind, and the audience should simply get over it, as he is articulating what so many Americans have felt, but have simply been so reluctant to express.

And now for Donald Trump.
Last week’s article detailed the many problems plaguing Hillary Clinton: her character, her reputation, her dishonesty, and her campaign. Particular emphasis was placed on how her persistent “ethical problems” account for her lack of trust.

Playing games with the budget
Some in the media and government watchers believe Republicans, especially House Appropriations Committee Chairman Cameron Henry of Metairie, apparently are still in denial about a Democrat being elected governor of Louisiana.
Is Massachusetts U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren on the warpath against Donald Trump?
“Whoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!”
When I was a kid and we’d play cowboys and Indians, this was the noise we always made.
“The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds. Despite the striking fact that most of the scientists that the world has ever known are alive and working today, despite the fact that this Nation's own scientific manpower is doubling every 12 years in a rate of growth more than three times that of our population as a whole, despite that, the vast stretches of the unknown and the unanswered and the unfinished still far out-strip our collective comprehension.”
As has been threatened over the past three months, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has issued his call for the second special session. According to the call he intends to fully fund TOPS, healthcare, K-12 education and higher education. Given the shortfall anticipated and the inability to provide these programs to the state through the most recent special session earlier this year and the general session which is beginning its last week, Edwards has decided to pursue another special session, this one to raise revenues.

Kids all over America graduated last week from kindergarten, grade school, high school, college and graduate schools. And there was always a commencement speaker. Most of you will never give a commencement address. But as a public official, I was called on to give a number of them. And guess what? I don’t remember any of the advice that I gave to these newly minted graduates.
