A LITTLE LOUISIANA HISTORY-GOVERNOR DAVE TREEN!

Unknowndfza

Former Louisiana Gov. Dave Treen took office 37 years ago. No one could’ve been friendlier. He was as nice a guy as they come. Many observers of the time thought he did not get a lot done. But history is judging him a lot better. He was a strong conservative; and felt that government should get out of the way and leave businesses alone. I had a good working relationship with him since I was serving as Louisiana Secretary of State. You can read my thoughts about Dave Treen in my new column now posted. Take a look by Clicking Here.

Mardi Gras Time in New Orleans!

I don’t know about you, but I’m heading off to New Orleans for a full week of Mardi Gras. It’s just a thing we do down here in Louisiana, as well as many other locations throughout the South. If you’ve never been toMardi Gras, particularly New Orleans, you really have not lived a full life. It’s a special season that goes on for weeks, and everyone, from rich folks  to average citizens, have their way in participating. I will be attending luncheons, carnival balls, parades, and a whole host of other events. So come on down if you can. And if you have not experienced Mardi Gras, check out this video below to show you what all you have been missing. Happy Mardi Gras.

WHY AREN’T WE THE GREATEST GENERATION?

imagesfhnhn

We have heard so much about the “Greatest Generation,” and the sacrifices made back in World War II. But look at all the technological developments they’re taking place today. Should not these current times made up by the greatest generation? Or are we building up a society of young “me first” individuals, who care more about their own well-being as compared to what’s best for our country? And could this “me first” attitude be a factor in the demise of American strength and influence throughout the world? I address all these questions in this week’s column. You can read it now by Clicking Here.

Former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw defined the “Greatest Generation” in his best selling book.  I’ve visited with Tom on several occasions, including the dedication of the World War II Museum in New Orleans a few years back, as you can see below.

We Need More Born Again Americans!

We recently celebrated Presidents Day, but there is little talk about the pride and the struggles of being an American by either political party in Washington. It’s all ”blame it on the other party” mentality, and you just have to wonder, how many of these Washington, out of touch, members of Congress, are really “tuned in” to the tough times of those who served us well, but seem to be relegated to the back burner of the American consciousness. Take a look at this inspiring video below….one of my favorites.

WHAT WOULD YOU ASK PRESIDENT TRUMP?

So Donald Trump calls you up on the phone one day, and says he wants to visit. That’s right! He wants to get a “feel” for what the average person is thinking. What would you tell the new president? What questions would you ask him? Would you give him any advice?   I sure would. Check out my new column that has just been posted. See what I think, and then you can ponder on what you would ask this controversial new leader of the free world. You can read the column now bye Clicking Here.

Proud of Being in the Military!

Special holidays like the 4th of July always have, for good reason, a special acknowledgement of those military service men and women who have defended our country for so many years.  There are few veterans in congress today.  Most politicians reflect the comment of former Vice President Dick Cheney, who, when asked why he did to volunteer for the military, said he had “other priorities.”  They don’t think it’s all that important to serve one’s country.  Spoken like a true chicken hawk.  I’m proud of my military service.  The Army and the National Guard for 12 years.  From time to time, I get out my old uniform (it still fits).  Take a look at the moving video below about being proud of military service.

NO CHANCE OF SUPREME COURT CHOICE FROM LOUISIANA!

UnknownqsW

When President Trump looked around the country for potential Supreme Court justices, it was obvious he didn’t spend anytime looking down in the Bayou State. Justices almost always come from the various Courts of Appeals around the country. But the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals was not given the time of day, and for obvious reasons. It’s full of some the least qualified judges in America. Did you know they’re referred to as grey mice? Take a look at my column, and get my explanation about incompetence on the Fifth Circuit.

Then we will talk about the Trump ban on immigrants with Dr. Nick Oberheiden is a constitutional scholar, author, and attorney. He holds a Ph.D. in law, a Juris Doctor from UCLA School of Law, among others. His law practice is limited to U.S. federal law with special emphasis on constitutional law, federal criminal procedure, and government investigations.

Immigration-What to do?

The immigration issue is front and center as President  Trump tries to bring a halt to so many illegal immigrants. What to do, what to do? Ray Stevens puts the whole problem in perspective in his funny video below. Take a look.

KEYSTONE PIPELINE: LOUISIANA’S ECONOMIC SAVIOR?

imagesv zv

Politicians down in southern oil states were high-fiving this week over the announcement by Pres. Trump that he will push towards building the Keystone pipeline from Canada down to Texas. Louisiana senators went way overboard by talking about 50 or 60,000 new jobs coming into the Bayou State. Boy, were they really off the mark. Whether you are for the pipeline or not, we need to do away with these exaggerations. Check out my new column where I talk about what really is involved in building the pipeline.

Louisiana has its state government financial back to the wall, as officials dig deep to find additional revenue. The state faces a $300 million dollars in debt for the coming year.

There are some options and I discuss them in my new column now posted. You can read it now by Clicking Here.

Are you Entitled?

Below is an excellent video on the perspective of millennials in our country today. There’s a great deal of talent, but also a sense of entitlement. Here is an excerpt of Simon Sinek, a commenter on today’s younger generation from an episode of Inside Quest. It is well worth a few minutes to review. And as Simon says, put down your smart phones wile you watch this video.

NEW GIMMICK TO RAISE TAXES IN LOUISIANA!

UnknownZ

Legislators in many states across the country are looking under every rock to find new ways to pile taxes on their citizens. Louisiana is no exception. Beginning immediately, the state will tax all Internet sales from wherever they take place. When you a pay tax, you expect to get something in return. But Internet sales from companies located outside the stage borders get nothing in return for the taxes. It’s taxation without representation. Check out my new column now posted and see if you agree. You can read it now by Clicking Here.
