GIVING BAILOUTS TO WALL STREET!

imagesb m cbncbncbbm

Are you ready to once again bail out the Wall Street Fat Cats who take enormous risks, knowing full well that if they fail, the taxpayers will be there to bail them out? Little folks like us just have to “suck it up.” But congress has been inundated with campaign contributions from Wall Street and big insurance. So your congressman has given them special privileges, and once again, the financial industry is too big to fail. And by the way, all you Louisiana taxpayers had your entire congressional delegation, with one exception, right there in support of the Fat Cats and against the average American taxpayer.

FOR BOBBY JINDAL- FIRST THE MUSLIMS, THEN THE WORLD!

imagescnv cn

Well, Louisiana’s controversial Governor, Bobby Jindal has stirred up a hornet’s nest with his claims that Muslims better start shaping up and speaking out. Jindal told us to “brace ourselves” cause he wasn’t going to pull any punches over all these cities in Europe where Muslim communities are enforcing sharia law on residents, ignoring the laws of the country in which they are living. And the rain of criticism poured down on Jindal. So, as Jindal implies, even thought all Muslims are not terrorists, are all terrorists Muslin? Take a look at my new column now posted to get my views. Jindal may not like what I have to say, but see what you think.

Airline Frustration!

Do you get frustrated with some many airline problems when you travel? I do. But I love this story. A musician named Dave Carroll recently had difficulty with United Airlines.

Dave spent over 9 months trying to get United to pay for damages caused by baggage handlers to his custom Taylor guitar. During his final exchange with the United Customer Relations Manager, he stated that he was left with no choice other than to create a music video for YouTube exposing their lack of cooperation. The Manager responded: “Good luck with that one, pal.” So he posted a retaliatory video on YouTube. The video has since received over 6 million hits. United Airlines contacted the musician and attempted settlement in exchange for pulling the video. Naturally his response was: “Good luck with that one, pal.”

Taylor Guitars sent the musician 2 new custom guitars in appreciation for the product recognition from the video  that has led to a sharp increase in orders. Here’s the video.

Bloggers today can be tough hombres. Just ask new Republican majority whip Steve Scalise. A 28-year-old law student from Alexandria, Louisiana who blogs for fun outed the Louisiana 1st district congressman for having once spoke to a group that was founded by white supremacist David Duke. Democrats and some conservative Republicans are calling for Scalise’s head. So should he resign, or at least give a better explanation than he has so far? Check out my new column now posted.

He was the first African American to serve and be elected in a number of major positions. Dutch died 25 years ago, but his remains were reinterred last week to a new family tomb. I was there for the ceremony and it was a good time to look back on quite a political career. My new column remembers a bright, funny, competent and groundbreaking political figure from days past.

And that’s what we saw in a culmination of distorted comments, all which played a role in the killing of the two New York City police officers last week. Read my new column and see if you agree.
