 state unrest 4We have teachers leaving their classes, protesting low pay and inadequate financial support for schools; Kids are taking off from class in droves, making sure their once muted voices are being heard on matters such as gun-control and weapons in schools. Once again, the state budget is a total mess and the voters are up in arms.

tweet gun 3Does Louisiana Senator Karen Carter Peterson really want to repeal the second amendment and take away our guns? Or, how about, does she just to repeal the second amendment but allow us to keep our weapons? Or, does she not want to do either?

anxious laWhy are the people of Louisiana so stressed? According to a new Wallet Hub survey, Louisiana citizens are the most stressed in the nation.

It seems the state has a sparse number of psychologists, high housing costs and poverty levels, as well as poor job security and credit scores. People in the state get divorced at high rates, don’t get enough sleep, work long hours and are in relatively poor health. While all of those causes are important, there is another factor that is clearly the most important one is causing stress for the citizens of Louisiana, high crime.

pete peal smallWhoa!!

Does Karen Carter Peterson, the Chairperson of the Louisiana Democratic Party support repealing the second amendment?

Rob Maness seems to think so and points to the evidence. A tweet by Peterson, that states "Repeal the Second Amendment" which includes the very controversial op-ed in the New York Times, earlier this week by no less, than former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who advocated that it should be repealed.

jbe promiseThere were several gatherings at the state capitol in Baton Rouge last week.  Former legislators gathered for their annual reunion to catch up on old friendships and reminisce about past legislative accomplishments.  And the few living delegates from the 1973 Louisiana Constitutional Convention were honored for their service as talk of a new convention was being debated in the capitol halls.  One theme ran through both gatherings. Why aren’t problems being solved?  Why so little cooperation?  Where is the vision?

lbc 5The Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus members have condemned the lack of judicial action involving the recent decision by Attorney General Jeff Landry in the Alton Sterling police matter.

Here is the statement by the Black Caucus:

gravytrain InPixioOnce again, special interests win at the expense of Louisiana taxpayers and its most vulnerable citizens. These greedy hogs yesterday defeated in committee SB 357 by Republican state Sen. Conrad Appel, which today caused Republican state Rep. Tony Bacala to set aside his HB 334. Both bills would put the state on course to creating a long-term managed care system for persons with disabilities. This change in philosophy discomfits nursing home interests, who benefit greatly from current state practice that biases placement of individuals in nursing homes instead of in their own homes or the community. While waiting lists for access to this care, called waiver programs, has steadily risen to 28,000 people, Louisiana nursing homes enjoy a gravy train at their expense.

fnn pic 4The Trump hating media has found a new obsession and her name is Stormy Daniels. The porn star is alleging a 2006 one-night stand with President Trump and the media cannot get enough of this story. In recent weeks, Daniels has been the focus of countless CNN and MSNBC segments. Her interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes was hyped for weeks, leading to a massive audience of 22 million viewers for the show. This was biggest audience for 60 Minutes in the last ten years.

edwards conferenceToday, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards responded to the decision by Attorney General Jeff Landry not to open the Alton Sterling investigation. The governor noted that the Louisiana Department of Justice followed the process as outlined by law but also backed an administrative review to determine any disciplinary action to be undertaken. 

landryThe losing streak continues in Gov. John Bel Edwards’ attempts of executive overreach to make the state go where its majority doesn’t wish.

The Louisiana Supreme Court last week confirmed lower court rulings that Edwards’ Executive Order JBE 16-11 violated the Louisiana Constitution, a suit brought by Atty. Gen. Jeff Landry. The gubernatorial pronouncement sought to add “gender identity” and “sexual orientation” to the list of individual characteristics that the state could not discriminate against in dealing with its personnel and concerning the personnel decisions of entities that contracted with the state.

laconservWhy is the Louisiana budget so much higher than the budgets of the other states, even the Southern states which Louisiana is often and justifiably compared?

Wait. You mean, the comparisons being made--claiming Louisiana spends so much more than other states with comparative larger populations, are, perhaps, not correct?

DANIELS PICRemember when we were looking at the possible candidacy of Stormy Daniels for the position of United States Senate from this great state of Louisiana? Apparently, many of us do recall. Yet, as Daniels is becoming a well-known face, body and name, there appears to be those who are just discovering that she once flirted with running for that top national office.

In the past week, I've received two phone calls from major International media outlets who somehow came across my name in association with statements I wrote or said back when Daniels was being discussed as an opponent against David Vitter.  The gist of the media’s curiosity appears to be--was she really running for US Senate? If so, why? What was she like?
