THE DEMISE OF ENTERTAINING POLITICS IN LOUISIANA!

Politics is serious business. But there has to be a relationship between members of both parties. To create an effective government, there has to be some camaraderie, friendship, and a commitment to make a good working relationship. Simply put, politics needs to have some fun in it. So what happened? Political life in Louisiana as well as the rest of the country just isn’t fun anymore. Why not? I’ll take a look at the reasons in my new column now posted.

Is Gambling there Answer to Louisiana’s Problems?

In Louisiana, apparently gambling is the answer to all the state problems. There is no other state in America where the different types of gambling are so prevalent. But then, why is the state at the bottom most quality of life lists?  We even have former slaves quarterback Drew Brees expanding on all the value of gambling. What’s going on here? I take a look at this problem in my new column. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

Honoring WWII Vets!

A moving luncheon for several World War II vets, all around 95 years old, at Antoine’s in New Orleans last week. A fine celebration of distinguished Americans who served the country well.

STOP THE MISCONDUCT OF THE FBI!

What’s up with that with the supposed sleuths that work for the FBI? They’re supposed to be the nations finest law-enforcement agency. But week after week, there’s either some kind of a specific screwup, or there’s a calculated effort to undermine the rule of law. The Wall Street Journal has even called for the FBI to be disbanded, and let Congress start all over again. Is that the answer? Why can’t the Justice Department, that supposedly oversees the FBI, get it right? That’s the focus of my new column for this week. Take a look and see what you think.

We Need to Do More to Serve our Country!

A special day honoring veterans all over America on November 11th.  No, it’s not a holiday. No hotdogs and picnics. Just a time to take a moment and honor  thousands of veterans who kept us free for so many years. It’s so easy for the younger generation to forget.  Yes so many live off the valor all those young men and women who chose to serve their country. Should everyone pitch in and help? That’s the focus of my new column now posted. You can read it now by Clicking on the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking here.

Get Rid of the Patriot Act!

This week, unfortunately, marks the  20th anniversary of the passing by Congress of the so-called Patriot Act.  It was a law passed and actively supported by the Bush Administration following 911, in a paranoid effort to search out so-called terrorist activities, and in the process, dramatically curtailed the individual freedoms of every American.  This invasion of personal rights was the wrong move when the law was passed in 2001, and it’s the wrong move today. I take a look at the Patriot Act in my new column now posted. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

Like many of you, I’m an old Elvis fan, and always loved his song “I can’t help falling in love with you.” But I came across this recent addition by young lady named Claire Crosby. She’s six. That’s right, six years old. See if you enjoy her reputation as much as I did.

On the Brink of Nuclear War!

It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago. But it’s been 59 years. That’s when our nation was almost at the break of nuclear war against the Russians. It was the Cuban missile crisis, and I was living in England at the time. I vividly remember getting up in the middle of the night to hear the president declare that we could be going to war. I talk about this crisis in my new column now posted. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

My Final Choice!

So here is the Halloween pumpkin I finally picked out. What do you think?

Happy Halloween!

I’m picking out my pumpkin for Halloween. I’ll be at home in Baton Rouge with plenty of treats.  Hope you look out for the kids in your neighborhood.

GET THE POLITICIANS OUT OF REAPPORTIONMENT!

Well it is that messy time of the election cycle when legislators are called on to reapportion themselves.  Don’t think they have their own self interest in mind? Good luck with that. The question is should legislators be reapportioning themselves in the first place?  Is this fair to the voters?  I talk about this issue in this week’s column.

Bohemian Rhapsody? A Little Different.

I always liked the song Bohemian Rhapsody by the musical group Queen. But then someone sent me this somewhat different version. Cats singing Bohemian Rhapsody? Take a look and see a different view.

Supreme Court needs to Get to Work!

The reputation of the United States Supreme Court has plummeted, with the overwhelming majority of Americans losing faith in their ability to be fair. One of the reasons is, they don’t work very hard. They take the whole summer off, and don’t work that hard in the winter. And they consider very few cases which is  appalling, particularly when you consider how important their work is. Check out my new column where I  discuss this troubling issue.

Emeril’s. is Back!

Good news! Emeril’s restaurant in New Orleans has opened back up. And of course Emerald will be consulting me on all his new menu choices. I’m giving him some suggestions below. (Yeah, right!)

 

A Genius at the Piano!

I’ve always wanted to play the piano well but never took the time. I have a new piano, and I’m just beginning to learn and some basic cords. I wish I would have begun my lessons when I was very young. Now if you really want to be intimidated, take a look at this accomplished young lady below. She’s five years old. And she plays as well as any accomplished pianist. And she’s five. Simply unbelievable.

CAN FAITH BE RESTORED IN THE FBI?

Here we go again. Another scandal of ineptitude and outright criminal wrongdoing on the part of the FBI. If you’ve not been following the malfeasance of FBI agents  who did nothing while numerous young female gymnasts were sexually abused, you missed a stomach churning story. The nation’s supposed top law enforcement agency stood by as young female gymnasts were abused for years. It’s a chilling story, that raises questions about incompetence, and why no charges have been brought against numerous FBI agents.

Why the Rabbit? Can you Guess?

5th Circuit Court of Appeals an Embarrassment for Louisiana!

Louisiana has the dubious distinction of being aligned in a federal district court of appeals that is bizarre, incompetent, controversial, and that often rules in direct contradiction to the constitution of the United States., Every other federal district court rules one-way, and the fifth circuit rules another way. It is wrong, it’s an embarrassment, and it’s a sad state of affairs that the state has to suffer over incompetent judges. This is the subject of my new column which is now posted.

OUR LIVES WERE CHANGED BY 9/11.

I stayed glued to the TV set our after hour watching the unbelievable events unfold. You can read my thoughts about 911 in my new column now posted.
