How do you put a dollar value on the worth of a public official?  Attorneys working full time for the LSU Health Sciences Center are asking to be paid more than $400,000 a year. So how do you justify such large increases? How about this idea? Shouldn’t receiving such large salaries be based on results?

LSU football coach Ed Orgeron will pocket some four million dollars this year, making him one of the highest-paid football coaches in the nation. He received such an enormous salary package based on results. It’s the old adage that you get what you pay for, and with Orgeron, LSU ended the season with a top ten ranking.

Once again, the House Democrats are at odds with the solid recommendations of our top military leaders. After prodding from House Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith (D-WA), the House passed the National Defense Authority Act (NDAA) 220-197 on July 12 without the support of any Republican members and with eight Democrat members voting against the bill.

After roughly 18 years of playing in some of the finest venues in the city, Politics with a Punch is taking it to the burbs and going Italian.   

“Punch”, as we love to call our political comedy show where just about everything goes, is leaving the Eiffel Society in New Orleans and taking its troupe of the top local newsmakers, celebrities,  media stars, comedians and politicians (no, the latter two are not necessarily synonymous.

Our new home is Andrea's in Metairie, and our next show is this Thursday August 1. Doors open at 6 pm, show begins at 8pm..

Louisiana has the "hots" for Tobasco Sauce

Written by

Grandparents visiting day took me to Portland, Maine this past weekend to spend time with my two oldest grandsons.  The highlight of the trip was of course hanging out with the boys and attending their various camp activities. But second on my list was to partake and enjoy Maine seafood, particularly the bountiful supply of lobster.  Now coming from the Bayou State with the best seafood in the nation, my standards are high. And with all due respect to the fine folks in Maine, I was disappointed.

In the coming weeks, will Sen. Bill Cassidy protect Louisiana residents from unnecessarily high healthcare costs?

  
It was not long ago that the Institute of Medicine named six Louisiana cities on its Top 10 list for most expensive places to buy healthcare.

  
Not only are Pelican State families struggling to pay for their health needs, but they are also not receiving the quality of care they deserve. According to a recent Wallethub study, Louisiana has the nation’s worst health maintenance as measured by cost, accessibility, and outcome.

Trump's "Squad" words show we're frightening CAPABLE

I hear you.

My friends, i understand your concerns. I don't agree with the "squad" or the politics of the four Congresswomen making all of the ruckus. I absolutely  don't like some of their comments. I believe Congresswoman Omar has said some really outrageous things and has made some comments that can easily be interpreted as anti-Semitic. I am also thankful to President Trump for pointing out their political positions that hurt Israel and defending Jewish people, which I am one.

Being a moderate democrat in Louisiana has become a real labor of love today, The Louisiana Democratic Party is becoming more and more irrelevant in the Bayou State. Party officials did itself a real disservice two years ago when it tried to wipe out the memory of the state’s two most important figures.

If ever there were any two individuals who should be regularly honored and commemorated in Louisiana history, there should be doubt that the two should be Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. And for many years, the Louisiana Democratic Party did honor both American heroes by hosting an annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner as a yearly fundraiser. Democrats held similar events across the country.  And for good reason.

If you are a woman who supports abortion rights, higher taxes, socialized medicine, a government sponsored climate change initiative like the Green New Deal, and open borders you are more likely to receive very favorable press coverage. If you are an African American who holds those views and are married to former President Barack Obama, you are treated like a media rock star.

Last week, as the storm system that would later become Hurricane Barry formed in the Gulf of Mexico, the media hype was already beginning. The Weather Channel deployed a team of almost a dozen reporters to the Gulf Coast. The national newspapers and cable news networks led their coverage with reporting on potential devastation advancing toward the State of Louisiana.

During the eight years Barack Obama was President, Democrats were united. He was the unifying force that held the party together. By bringing in Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State, he healed the wounds from the bruising 2008 presidential race. During his re-election campaign of 2012, Obama was not challenged for the Democratic presidential nomination and won another term as President.

In the race to take on President Donald Trump, vice-president Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders continue to slip in the polls among Democratic voters according to the just released Morning Consult poll. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of the survey is that among likely voters, Biden's lead drops to high single digits.

Cut out reapportionment by Louisiana politicians

Written by

redist knife

It’s getting close to redistricting time for legislators in Louisiana. By federal law, all election districts must be reapportioned every 10 years to reflect the latest census figures. But should legislators, who have a vested interest in how the redistricting lines are drawn, actually do the drawing?
