"The Academy has a problem. It's a problem that needs to be solved...For 20 opportunities to celebrate actors of color, actresses of color, to be missed last year is one thing; for that to happen again this year is unforgivable. This institution doesn't reflect its president...I am an Academy member and it doesn't reflect me, and it doesn't reflect this nation." 

- David Oyelowo, Actor, January 2016

“...And I've looked over, and I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land. So I'm happy tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man.”

How New Orleans has changed our history, future

Written by

andrew jacksonTwo hundred years ago this month, Louisiana was the center of a major turning point in both American and world history. The War of 1812 was the first time in the short time of the nation’s history that the U.S. had declared war, and the three-year conflict came to a final struggle at the Battle of New Orleans. The major victory over the British by a small group of ragtag Louisianans launched America on to the world stage, and the new nation became a significant power. But it also just might have caused a domino effect that changed the course of world history.

It did Tuesday night, hours after Jon Bel Edwards announced his plan to raise taxes, utilize funds from various sources and cut government spending—all to plug a short-term hole of roughly $750 million dollars for the existing year and $1.9 million for the following year, which fiscal period begins July 1, 2016.

That is the message from John Kennedy, Louisiana Treasurer, as he appeared today on Jeff Crouere’s WGSO 990 Ringside Politics program to discuss the Louisiana budget crises and the yesterday’s proposal by Governor Jon Bel Edwards.   Edwards has been in office for one week and the budget crises reveals that roughly $750 is short for the fiscal year of 2016 and $1.9M short for fiscal year 2017.

Here is a press release from the Governor's office.

Outgoing Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal seems to have left a stocking full of coal for new Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards.

There is a subtle, yet significant, distinction between being “at” the table or being “on” it. If you don’t believe it, ask the Thanksgiving turkey how much he enjoys his seat at the table every year.
