Jim Brown, commentator and former Statewide elected official and state Senator says yes, he did.

She said that her husband’s administration was “like having the good parent at home.” In Michelle Obama’s warped view, her husband filled the national role of a “responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time.”

Jindal has been a significant critic of Trump's tweets and erractic behavior. During the campaign, the Louisiana governor called Trump a nariccist, labeling him insecure and weak.     However, in a op-ed which appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Jindal trumpet's the President's knack for understanding the blue-collar and middle-class households and his ability to fulfill his committments to them.

trump target 6Thank God we don’t have to talk about Stormy Daniels this week, and how her lawyer bushwhacked the president’s posse. There’s something new for a change.

anxious laWhy are the people of Louisiana so stressed? According to a new Wallet Hub survey, Louisiana citizens are the most stressed in the nation.

It seems the state has a sparse number of psychologists, high housing costs and poverty levels, as well as poor job security and credit scores.

While all of those causes are important, there is another factor that is clearly the most important one is causing stress for the citizens of Louisiana, high crime.
