YOU OUTSIDERS, QUIT TELLING US WHAT’S BEST FOR LOUISIANA!

imagesdghndd

What is it with these politicians bringing in outside officials to tell us how to vote? Then the problem gets compounded with the flooding of the airwaves paid for by out of state special interest money. Can’t voters in all states make up their own minds without this outside influence? I guess candidates think voters are too dumb to make up their own minds, and need help from vested interests all over America. I say Malarkey. Leave us alone, keep your tainted money and quite telling in state voters how to vote! That’s the focus of my new column now posted. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Our Thanksgiving Weekend program is all lined up with a busy schedule of guests and topics. We will be live from New York City where the snow is supposed to come down in droves. So a good time to get into the holiday spirit. Did you shop on Black Thursday? No, not Friday, but Thursday?   Are there any days left for family togetherness? We will talk about it.

The Keystone pipeline continues to dominate news up in Washington as Congress tries to one up the president’s hand. What’s all this controversy about? We will talk with Bill O’Keefe, CEO of the Marshal Institute that concentrates on energy issues. You can read about his activities at www.marshell.org.

Then we will talk about good health with Dr. James Pinckney out of Dallas. He’s a pioneer in concierge healthcare where you pay so much a month directly to the physician with no insurance involved. Is this the wave of the future? Cut out the insurance companies? We will talk about it. Dr. James is pictured above (right) with my old friend and renowned baseball coach Larry Brown. See Dr. James’ website at www.diamondprivatephysicians.com.   So tune in for a lively show. Check local listings for times and stations.




The Catch of the Century!

You probably have seen the football “catch of the century” by former LSU star receiver Odell Beckham, J., now playing for the New York Giants. Those of us who followed Odell during his years playing here in Baton Rouge have seen a number of acrobatic catches. But nothing like he pulled off Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. He’s been photo shopped in a number of positions.   Too see these clever photos, Click Here. And check out this amazing catch below.

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.




Weekend Radio Program!

Unknown`24`24

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.
