The results are in for 2015, and it comes as no surprise that Louisiana continues to lead the nation in having the highest automobile insurance rates. A new study, just released by the Bankrate Group “ranked all 50 States according to a number of factors that determined where it’s the worst state to drive a car.” The analysis concluded that Louisiana is the worst state for drivers due “in large part because of the nation’s highest car insurance costs and above average fatal crash rate.”
It now appears that at least one pollster of the 2015 Louisiana gubernatorial contest figures a different electorate than recent trends suggest on which other pollsters base their samples. If he is correct, the contest’s dynamics differ from what commonly is believed.
Want to discuss the Louisiana Governor's election? Who has the best policy--David Vitter, Jon Bel Edwards, Jay Dardenne or Scott Angelle?
In a frenzy to follow fad, should area government dissociate anything reeking of the Confederacy from schools and other public spaces?
The latest polls tell a horrible story for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, the most persistent presidential candidate of them all. According to the Loras College Iowa poll, released today, Jindal is languishing at 1% support in Iowa, tied for 12th place. Thus, Jindal has received no political benefit from his countless trips, speeches and campaign appearances in the Hawkeye state.
TOPS, Medicaid in Louisiana hitting the bottom, the current Governor Bobby Jindal continuing the high cost of healthcare in Louisiana and pushing the problem off to the next administration—those were some of the topics discussed today in a WGSO radio interview with Treasurer John Kennedy.
The Monmouth University Poll of likely Iowa Republican caucusgoers puts Ben Carson and Donald Trump even for the top spot for Republican presidential nominee at 23%. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who has spent significant time in Iowa over the summer has collected 1% of the vote in a tie with Texas Governor Rick Perry and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
I bet most of us are happy the Katrina Anniversary 10 is now history.
Some believe, it was nothing but nonsense. Others did not want to look at the rear view mirror of horrors. Then, there were some who felt the anniversary experience was necessary and for the most part, well-done.
It’s official: Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne has gone into desperation mode in his quest for Louisiana’s top office.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal issued the following statement today about Katrina anniversary, but, somehow, in a conservative politically correct way, he seemed to have left out something quite important that allowed the Gulf Coast, and Louisiana and New Orleans in particular, to come back from figuratively speaking, the dead.
Two upcoming major events being held August 29, 2015, honoring and remembering Hurricane Katrina anniversary:
I was one of the fortunate ones to see President Barack Obama speak to New Orleans politicos, supporters, the media and others, yesterday, at a Lower 9th ward center which apparently had been 17-feet beneath water after Hurricane Katrina hit on August 29, 2005.
On this Katrina Anniversary, the Council for a Better Louisiana, CABL, is taking issue with some of the national news reporting relatted to the state's education system post-Hurricane Katrina. Here is the statement from CABL:
This week there has been a flood of news stories assessing the recovery of New Orleans ten years after the devastation of Katrina. There are many aspects of life and rebuilding to look at in a city that was virtually destroyed and almost totally depopulated. No American city in modern times has been through so much.
