TRUMP GUTS LOUISIANA ON OIL INCOME!

For over 80 years, Louisiana has been a major oil producer, and state government has been dependent on this royalty income. But has the Bayou State really received its fair share? Many people think not. In other states with lots of lots of mineral income, there is a much higher percentage of royalty payments received. Louisiana gets a pittance. How come the state has gotten such a shortage? Take a look at my new column and see what you think. Passed political mistakes have cost Louisiana taxpayers billions of dollars.

Proud of Being in the Military!

Special holidays like the Memorial Day 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.

LOUISIANA CATCHING UP TO THE 21st CENTURY?

Anyone who looks over the structure of the Louisiana government will come to one conclusion. The make up of the state, and the way it is run, hasn’t change in over 100 years. There are inefficiencies glory, duplicated services, out of date practices, and a major waste of money on both the state and local level. There’s got to be a better way to skin the cat. When the Legislature meets, consolidation seems to be almost a dirty word. What can be done about it? Take a look at my new column now posted. You can read it by Clicking Here.

MONUMENTS, THE PRESIDENT AND THE CIVIL WAR!

imagesyuik6iu

It looks like, in many parts of the country, we are still fighting the Civil War. There’s a huge fight over monuments, honoring Civil War heroes that are being taken down in New Orleans. Just not politically correct. President Trump wadded in last week by wondering why the Civil War was necessary in the first place. Was the President off base in making such statements? Or can you make the case that Lincoln should have done more to stop the war in the first place? Check out my new column now posted and see what I think. You can read it now by Clicking Here.

Movie on Prosecutorial Misconduct!

A documentary on Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman details the “malicious prosecution and wrongful conviction” of Siegelman and former businessman Richard Scrushy.  It premiers in a number of theaters nationwide next week.

The documentary is titled “Atticus v. The Architect: The Political Assassination of Don Siegelman,”  It is a stunning report on major prosecutorial misconduct. It is an important film about a serious problem in the federal criminal justice (or rather injustice) system in America.  Try to see it if you can.

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 while you watch.

POLITICS BEING CRIMINALIZED BY PROSECUTORS?

48098021.cached

Too often, justice runs amuck and is denied in America today. One of the most grievous cases showing outright prosecutorial misconduct is centered on former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman. His supposed crime was simply raising funds to support a referendum creating a lottery with money going into public education. Virtually every neutral observer who has looked at the case, including a number of news organizations and Attorney Generals across the country, have concluded that Siegelman got railroaded. It’s a sad reflection on prosecutors who purposely prosecute innocent victims. I write about the Siegelman case in my new column now posted. You can read it by Clicking Here.

So we’ve  got this crazy guy over in North Korea who is rattling nuclear sabers and saying he is close to being able to send a missile flying and hit the United States.  What to do?  There are no easy responses.  And they were not back in 1963 during the Cuban missile crisis. I lived through that first hand in England, and recount my personal experiences of the dangers and uncertainties that possible nuclear war can bring. Check out my new column now posted.
