This week, it was not Jindal’s fault…

Quite the week for Mr. Jindal. Bobby goes to CPAC. Bobby releases his budget for Louisiana. Bobby blames everybody but Bobby for all the criticisms levied against the decisions and policies of Bobby. Gotta feel for the guy, though…it must be difficult to be the only reasonable man in not only Louisiana, but the United States…the only true conservative, the only one willing to fight … Continue reading This week, it was not Jindal’s fault…

Making it up as he goes…

Two days ago, Carl Barbier, the federal judge overseeing the Deepwater Horizon litigation decided that a gang of lawyers, so named the plaintiff steering committee, should benefit from a reimbursement fund, designed to pay them for the money they’re spending to sue BP on behalf of their clients. One of the many problems with this decision is this fund will not be paid for by … Continue reading Making it up as he goes…

Are you there God? It’s me, Bobby…

God? Hello…it’s Bobby. I know I’ve only been coming to you with problems lately, and I did do my best to clear the scheduling conflicts with Rick Perry’s Reliant Stadium deal, but you know how it is, the laundry needs doing, the house needs painting and the television needs watching and besides, word is you’re not going to Houston either, so live and let live, right right? What? Jindal…right, … Continue reading Are you there God? It’s me, Bobby…

Your Musical Interlude…July 4th, Ani DiFranco, Blue Nile, British Petroleum, Barack Obama…

I don’t celebrate July 4th. I want to, and hope I will be able to again someday…but not yet… I have this opinion, that if our founding fathers were walking the days, out and about, they would be appalled at what they see: simply put, the unnecessary suffering of so many, to benefit the simple greed of the few, a government run amok, a modern … Continue reading Your Musical Interlude…July 4th, Ani DiFranco, Blue Nile, British Petroleum, Barack Obama…

My first vote in 20 years…

I haven’t voted in an election, local, state or national since the year 1992. I voted for Clinton. I felt it was important at the time to do so as I was convinced the GOP was working on destroying the things I felt were important to not only save, but bolster…but then Clinton went and did all the destroying: bombing Iraq, depleting the social safety net, … Continue reading My first vote in 20 years…

A Baton Rouge review from the New Orleans Assassin…

Hello… Yes, I still kill people for a living. Though I’m thinking of starting my own charter school, but more about that later… I know its been a while, and I might apologize if I believed in such sentiment but I don’t…so, another legislative session comes and goes, and I’m caught in the city in that early summer dry spell…why do contract hits slow down … Continue reading A Baton Rouge review from the New Orleans Assassin…

A Message From Rousseau…

“Usurpers always choose troubled times to enact, in the atmosphere of general panic, laws which the public would never adopt when passions were cool. One of the surest ways of distinguishing the work of a lawgiver from that of a tyrant is to note the moment he chooses to give a people its constitution.” – Jean Jacques Rousseau An economic crisis is created by Bush … Continue reading A Message From Rousseau…

My prayer for August 6th…

Dear God, hear my prayer… It is my understanding that Rick Perry, current Governor of Texas and potential candidate for the Republican Presidential nomination has invited all of the nation’s governors to join him on August 6th at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. The purpose of this gathering is a day of prayer and fasting for the nation in order to seek your guidance in … Continue reading My prayer for August 6th…

The hooker Louisiana politicians can’t keep from their beds…

In the beginning of an important story by American Zombie, he details how Big Oil has two bills in the works which would make it illegal to file lawsuits against oil companies, including British Petroleum. And the Louisiana lawmakers to vote on this? Yes of course, all have ties to oil and gas companies… “Briggs (President of LOGA) would have us believe that there are … Continue reading The hooker Louisiana politicians can’t keep from their beds…
