LOUISIANA BIG LOSER IN IOWA CAUCUS!

imagesbsfgbsfg

Ah, what could’ve been in the deepest of the deep southern states certainly that could have had the first presidential primary in America. And can you imagine? All the candidates and busloads of the press crisscrossing the state spending not just millions, but hundreds of millions of dollars. A huge economic bonanza for the Bayou State. But because of petty political ambitions by selfish politicians, it wasn’t to be. Louisiana passed, and gave up the bountiful benefits of being the first state in the nation to hold a presidential primary. You can read all about what the state missed in my new column now posted.

Day The Music Died!

IMG_1306

I wanted to take some time this week on my syndicated radio show to remember back. To many of us, this was the week that, according to the lyrics in Don McLean’s famous song, … the infamous “day the music died”. Fifty-seven years ago on February 3rd, the great Buddy Holly died in a terrible plane crash. It was an early tragedy in rock music, but it sure wasn’t the last. Buddy was a Texas boy who changed the world of music for all of us. He died with to other music icons of the 60s, Richie Valens and J.P. Richardson (The Big Bopper). Just a few years later came Glenn Frey who formed The Eagles. I’ve loved this group for many years and always reminds me to never give up living care free life. Glenn died last week at 67. Check out belowWaylon Jennings talking about the death of Holly and others.

We are approaching he weekend before Fat Tuesday and this is the prime time to visit New Orleans for Mardi Gras. This is the weekend when Bacchus and Endymion, two of the biggest parades of the season, roll down the streets of New Orleans. The streets are packed all day Saturday and Sunday with parade goers. I’ve grown up around the Mardi Gras traditions, and we look forward to broadcasting our “Common Sense show” from the Big Easy this coming Sunday. If you’ve never been there, you missed the greatest free show on earth. Below is a video to give you some idea what it’s all about. Happy Mardi Gras!

ARE NEW LOUISIANA TAXES REALLY NECESSARY?

budget-constantin-cagle-Nov.-26-2013

It would be an understatement to say that my home state of Louisiana is in a real financial mess. Because of irresponsible spending under the previous governor and legislature, the Bayou State has to fill a financial hole this year in the coming five months of $750 million, And next year of almost $2 billion. But does it? Does the state really have to spend that much money? That’s the focus of my new column this week. Take a look and see what you think. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.
