The results of the primary election on October 12 showed that Louisiana voters were rather interested in this campaign and the candidates. Either they realize that Louisiana is not doing well economically and want change, or they want four more years of John Bel Edwards as Governor. Regardless, 200,000 more voters participated in this election than in the 2015 election. It is a good sign that turnout increased despite a major LSU vs. Florida football game scheduled for Election Day.

I’m confused.  Perhaps  somebody can explain the commercial to me.

Last night, I saw for the first time, a Ralph Abraham campaign commercial that said something I found both shocking and curious.  According to Abraham, as he looks directly and sincerely at the video cameras, the rigs are employing no one and current Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is to be blamed.

A voter would think that former Governor Bobby Jindal is running again in the coming fall elections.  Rarely does current Gov. John Bel Edwards make a speech where he does not lay all the state’s financial woes at the feet of Jindal.  Why has Jindal become such a political punching bag with such a high negative among Louisiana voters?

July 4th has come and gone.

Which means here in Louisiana, during statewide elections year, it’s time to put away the hotdogs and apple pie and roll out the political signs. After all, the governor’s race is heating up as the hot “dog days of summer “ wear on.

On Monday, the current inhabitant of the mansion, Governor John Bel Edwards unleashed his first campaign TV ad. While his political foe is one very successful  Baton Rouge businessman Eddie Rispone and one powerful  Congressman, Ralph Abraham, at least for now, neither are directly the ad target.  That honor goes to—you guessed it—none other than former Louisiana Governor and past-GOP rising star,  Bobby Jindal.

The news release by last September said that former Gov. Bobby Jindal had been appointed to the board of directors of by Wellcare Health Plans, Inc., of Tampa, Florida.

Yawn. Ho-hum. Has LouisianaVoice become so desperate for stories that it resurrects a nine-month-old news release?

Remember the echo can chamber? Way back, before Al Gore invented the Internet, one way that kids would talk to one another would be by stringing two cans together. The words would go out of the mouth of the speaker, hit the back of the can, vibrate along the string, hit the other can's end and within micro-seconds, and somewhat miraculously, enters the ear of the other guy holding up the can. 

Things have changed. 

Nowadays, one can say something and before one can look for a string, the words are dissiminated around the world, via email, twitter, facebook post and yes, even by cell phone and snail mail.

MANUFACTUER TECHNOLOGY 8 4How is Louisiana's economy doing now that the oil prices have improved, especially since Louisiana is so dependent upon that industry? There have been reports about a poor Louisiana economy, so is it fair to blame the current governor, John Bel Edwards?  Is the United States losing the manufacturing battle against the world as President Donald Trump has been claiming?

edwards jindal 6Is there some way that Louisiana can gets its budgetary house in order? What is the problem? Did it begin under current Governor John Bel Edwards?  Is Medicaid the culprit? Can we reform higher ed?

On Tuesday, I discussed the budget with former State Representative Brett Geymann, a budget hawk, who was term-limited and who left the legislature after the 2015 election.  Geymann believes that the state budget should be tied to the economy and we will publish his thoughts on this tomorrow, as we went more into detail on that issue in the latter part of the Facebook, Twitter and Youtube Live discussion.
