KEYSTONE PIPELINE-LOUISIANA’S ECONOMIC SAVIOR?

imagesfaaf

The Keystone pipeline has become an issue that now dominates the U.S. Senate race in Louisiana. It’s the where all to end all dispute, and seems to be all that the two run off candidates are talking about. Incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu(D) and challenger Dr. Bill Cassidy(R) have each tried to “one up” the other in pleading how important a Keystone pipeline is to the economic future of Louisiana. My reaction? Hogwash! The issue will not mean diddlysquat to the Bayou State. No new jobs will be created and not a dime of economic development. Read my view in my now column now posted. You can read it by going to the Flashing Red Box above, or by Clicking Here.

And if you want to see a funny take on how both Democrats and Republicans have exaggerated the fact on Keystone, take a look at Jon Stewart’s rant.  Funny and right on.

Well it’s the week before Thanksgiving, and most of the country is over and done with politics.  And thank goodness.  Well, except down in my home state of Louisiana.  We have a run off for U. S. Senator and congressional races, so us Red Necks and Cajuns will have to suffer through a few more weeks.  Will the new congress get anything done?   Don’t count on it and we will talk about it.

 And as we gear up for Thanksgiving, many are preparing to engage in a strange ritual that is consuming the traditional turkey dinner faster than we do. The ritual is the extension of Black Friday shopping into Thanksgiving Day, says international speaker John Horvat. I say a really bad idea. John has a new book called “Return to Order,” and you can find out more about it by Clicking Here.

We are also going to examine, in great detail, dozens of current cultural trends and historical patterns that do not merely suggest, but confirm and support the theory that America, if she continues on her current trajectory, will soon cease to exist as she was founded and as we know her.  Best-selling author/U.S. historian David Barton and best-selling author and founder of the Barna Group, George Barna, will join me to discuss   their new book, “U-Turn: Restoring America to the Strength of Its Roots“.  Find out more by Clicking Here.  So join us for a lively program.  Check local listings for times and stations.




A Great Louisiana Author!

IMG_0689

I attend a number of book fairs and festivals, particularly in the South, to publicize my publications through The Lisburn Press. What a treat a few weeks ago to be joined by the great American writer and fellow Louisianan Ernest Gaines. His works have been taught in college classrooms and translated into many languages, including French, Spanish, German, Russian and Chinese. Four of his works have been made into television movies. His 1993 novel, A Lesson Before Dying, won the National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction. Gaines has been a MacArthur Foundation fellow, and awarded the National Humanities Medal. He is a real Louisiana treasure.




Mary Gautier-Quite a Singer!

Songwriter and singer Mary Gauthier came back home is week. The Baton Rouge gal gave a first-rate performance at the Red Dragon listening room, one of my favorite hangouts here along the Mississippi River her in “Red Stick.” Mary tours the country and has found fame up in Nashville, performing misty and emotion provoking songs, many that she has written. Here’s one of my favorites below, “I Drink.”  Check her out and see what you think.

NO MORE RETAIL POLITICS IN LOUISIANA!

imagesxsg

Senators and governors of days past are turning over in their graves at the carrying on, or lack of thereof, by the candidates for U.S. Senate in Louisiana. Where have both incumbent democratic Senator Mary Landrieu and republican challenger Dr. Bill Cassidy been for all these months? Few voters around the state can remember seeing either candidate for years. What happened to “pressing the flesh,” and traveling all over Louisiana  to attend the large number of fairs and festivals? Is that way of politicking obsolete. NO, I say, and if you will read my new column, you will see my reasoning. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

And check out below Eddie Murphy, in the movie Brewster’s Millions, carrying on about incompetence in politics, and voting for “None of the Above.”
