Louisiana shooting for mandatory gun insurance?

gun insuranceSo have you purchased your gun insurance yet?  In case you shoot someone, there are insurance policies available to cover any liabilities you might face, pay for your bail if you are accused of a crime, cover your attorney fees, and even pay for any psychological therapy you might need.  So if you are going to fire away, nice to know that you are financially covered, right?

Look out sports fans!  Maybe, just maybe, baseball is making a big comeback.  Now I know we are in the middle of football season.  Down my way in the Bayou State, both the Saints and the LSU Tigers are on a roll.  And a hyped-up basketball season is just beginning.  But baseball is drawing record crowds with the World Series ringing up the largest TV audiences in years.

Louisiana throws elections but nobody comes

It’s like they threw a party but nobody came. That’s how election officials must have felt when they counted the ballots for last week’s statewide election. The turnout was a paltry 13.5%. Now remember that some 50% of adults over eighteen who could register have not done so. That means the less than 7% of Louisianans over eighteen bothered to show up at the polls to vote.

katrina FLOOD 4With major hurricanes recently hitting Florida and Texas, and since some parts of Louisiana are still cleaning up after last year’s torrential rains, many property owners in the Bayou State are asking if insurance rates will go up.  Will rates go up?  Is the Pope Catholic?  Does Grizzly Adams have a beard?  Of course we all will be paying more.

Jim Brown: I want the RIGHT TO DIE, Mr. Government

right to dieWe pride ourselves as Americans in our lifestyle choices. The right to freedom of choice, protecting our individual assertion of free will, and deciding just how we want to live our lives. And yes, we have the right to excess. You can live a gluttonous life by overindulging in many personal hazards.

LA FLOODHurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma have caused property owners along the Gulf and East Coasts to panic over projections of outrageous property flood insurance rates that, in some cases, could lead to increases of greater than 1000 per cent. Is there really a problem finding affordable flood insurance along America’s coasts? Yes, and a growing one.

cajun busThe Cajun Navy wasted no time.  Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas Coast on a Friday.  By Sunday, hundreds of boats were on their way to Texas.  I passed a supermarket parking lot two days after the storm hit, and a large contingent of boats and trailers were lined up to head for the Lone Star State.  As this column is being written, thousands of Louisianans are offering help.  That’s what many Texans did for us here in the Bayou State exactly twelve years ago. 

guessAh, the wisdom found in the New York Times.  America’s newspaper (at least according to them) seems to find a reason every week to denigrate the backwards homefolks that populate Louisiana.  Certainly some debasement is justified particularly when it comes to disparaging the state’s political establishment.  But there’s one area that is sacrosanct and off limits to even the least well informed news editor.  Whatever you do or write, don’t mess with LSU football.
