Well, the fat lady finally sang to finish off the quixotic campaign of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal as he undertook a futile effort to run for president. The guy really never had a chance. This is not the year of a governor on the presidential circuit. And Jindal had lost virtually all his political support back home. I take a close look at the rise and fall of one of Louisiana’s most promising governors. He could’ve done so much, get he accomplished so little.

Well the Louisiana Republican Party is in open warfare against a candidate for governor who has endorsed a democrat. Republican Lt. Governors Jay Dardenne, after a bruising first primary, has now endorsed Re. John Bell Edwards, and the GOP top honchos say Dardenne has betrayed the cause? But don’t both parties do this? And how about crooked elections? I talk about both these issues in my new column now posted. Read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Is it time to open up the prison doors and let all non-violent convicts out? Many politicians are saying so to save money. Is that a justifiable reason to cut sentences or move many prisons in to re-hab programs? And just who is a non-violent felon? Is the driver of the getaway car at a bank robbery non –violent? There are many unanswered questions in this whole prison reform debate. I raise a number of these questions in my new column.

So you have a party and no one shows up? That’s what it felt like way down in Louisiana last week, when a big gubernatorial election took place. It seems like nobody cared.

So a new governor comes into office with a legislature that is confused over how to solve Louisiana’s financial mess. And boy, it is some mess! Say, two billion dollars in debt. That ain’t chump change by any means. So what to do? Does the legislature continue to live from year to year, just putting s finger in the fiscal dyke that is about to break wide open? There are some ways out of this financial chaos. Take a look at my new column. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

America’s Best College Football Player!

If you follow college football, you surely are aware of the fact that the leading runner and top favorite to win the Heisman Trophy this year is LSU’s running back, Leonard Fornette. This young sophomore is just awesome on the football field. Last week, he only ran for hundred 60 yards, and that was considered a bad day. Take a look at the video below, making a parody of how tough Fornette is. He is destined to be the most exciting college football players in recent years, and you should take the time to watch him in action. Some humor about him below.

Can you believe, so little interest in the coming Louisiana gubernatorial election? In past elections, the turn out oven topped 75%. But on October 24th, don’t be surprised if the voter turn out is 45% or even lower. So what’s the problem? Why are not more Louisiana voters going to the polls to cast their choices? Check out my new column now posted to find out what I think. You can read it by Clicking on the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.
