DOMESTIC TERRORISM IN LAFAYETTE!

imagesdadfa

Was the terrible shooting in a Lafayette, Louisiana movie theatre an isolated incident, or are we seeing an increase in what has to be considered domestic terrorism? I was there at the Grand Theater just a few hours after the killings. There are some troubling issues over how a deranged mental case even was able to purchase a gun. How did the system fail? You can check out my new column a out my personal experience that tragic night. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Radio Weekend Update!

Much more on domestic terrorism as our weekend radio program shapes up. The Lafayette, Louisiana shooter hit right in my backyard, and I have more to tell than perhaps you have read in the national media. The first presidential debate takes place this eek.

And finally, are you aware of the “Cambrian explosion” — a remote period of geological history in which numerous animal forms appear to have arisen suddenly and without evolutionary precursors in the fossil record which poses a potentially fatal threat to Darwin’s theory of evolution, as Darwin himself admitted? David Klinghoffer will be my guest to discuss what possible could have happened, in his new book, “Debating Darwin’s Doubt.” For more information, Click Here. We will see you on the radio.

Good Graduation Advise!

I’ve always been a Coach Lou Holtz football fan.  Particularly when he coached up at Notre Dame.  Not only was he an outstanding football coach, he also was a real  inspiration to all those around him.  Last year, he was the commencement speaker at a small Catholic college, Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio.  He was practical, funny, withy good advise for these new graduates.  It’s well worth taking a few minutes to listen to Coach Holtz.

TRUMP DISPARAGES LOUISIANA HEROES!

trump_g.i.joke_-460_312

How can I say this delicately about Donald Trump? I’ll be diplomatic and gentle. He’s a blowhard, a draft dodger, a conceded ass, and a big mouth that should be and will be taken down. I wrote a fairly favorable column about his presidential aspirations a few weeks back. I liked how he put the other presidential wanabes on the spot. But he now has crossed the line in his criticism of our POWs. I’ve washed my hands of him. Check out my new column to see why.

Standing up to Thugs!

There are way too many thugs robbing businesses and rampaging our communities. Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. (my old neck of the woods) was such a thug. Take a look below at this storekeeper who said, not just no, but Hell No, to a thug who held her up. She stood up to lawbreakers and three cheers for her.

UnknownsssD

After taking 10 years off, country mega star Garth Brooks is back and big as ever. He wowed a jam-packed crowd in New Orleans last week singing most of his 27 number one hits, with more energy that anyone could have imagined. But what was it like when he first began singing as a career? I can share some past remembrances about him when he performed in Louisiana many years ago. Check out my new column now posted.

Finally, co-authors Mark A. Beliles and Jerry Newcombe suggest America take a step back and look at how far our country has come… or strayed… from the God-given rights our Founders fought to give us. One of the reasons is because this one man and his words have been misunderstood: Thomas Jefferson. Doubting Thomas: The Religious Life and Legacy of Thomas Jefferson, presents new evidence and little known facts that may change your view of Thomas Jefferson. Click Here to see more.

If you missed it, you can eat your heart out while taking a gander of me hangin’ out with Miss USA and Miss Universe.

MISS USA TRUMPED BY IMMIGRANT DEBATE!

images   cbnccgsrth

Ole’ Donald Trump sure knows how to stir up a hornet’s nest. His incinerary comments on illegal immigrants have caused NBC and multiple sponsors to pull out of the Miss USA pageant, partly owned by Trump, this weekend in Baton Rouge. Other Republican presidential candidates have lashed out at Trump calling his comments divisive, inaccurate and offensive. But is he wrong in what he is saying?

There is a great deal of controversy over the Miss USA pageant scheduled this week in my hometown of Baton Rouge. But we also have a beautiful young lady from New Orleans who represents the state at the Miss America pageant as Miss Louisiana, April Nelson. I ran into her at Jackson Square in the French Quarter last week, and you can see how pretty she is. She is a singer and will have a chance to be Miss America this September in Atlantic City. Good luck to April.

Forth of July Remembering!

Last week was our special holiday to commemorate the founding of our country, and I was remiss in not putting op a special video to remember those who have served us to defend our country today. I’m not familiar with Food City, but kudos to this company for producing this exception TV spot so we don’t forget. Oh yes, you can also check out my 4th of July salute with my buddy, Jessica Simpson.

RE-WRITING LOUISIANA’S HISTORY FLAGS, MONUMENTS AND ALL!

imagesCV VCZ

Well, the battle lines have been drawn and the South is (again) under assault. Not just the Confederate flag, but also a whole host of what some consider “politically incorrect” symbols that have been a way of live in many parts of the country for years. What do we do about Confederate monuments, names, Dukes of Hazzard, Aunt Jemima syrup, Uncle Ben’s rice, Gone with the Wind; they all gotta go? The cultural cleansing in the Bayou state has begun. Do you agree that there is a middle round or do we rive up the controversy? Check out my new column now posted you can read it by going to the Flashing Red Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Wade, Vietnam, and the Month That Changed America Forever,” the first book to look at both (a) what really happened at the Supreme Court behind the scenes of Roe v.

Finally, LISA DURDEN is an African American Pop-Culture/Political Commentator who has some strong words about the Confederate flag, Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, and “Gone with the Wind.” You and I will disagree on some of the things she says, but it should be interesting. So tune in for a lively “Common Sense” program. Check local listings for times and stations. See you on the radio.

Kennedy in his Prolific Words!

I often wish  President john F. Kennedy were still around.  We cold use some calm and thoughtful rhetoric in our country today, not the insidious bomb throwing we see almost daily from both political parties.  Look at his sensible words:

LOUISIANA TO THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT- LEAVE OLD HICKORY ALONE!

imagesAZ

There is a major push to put a woman on the face of paper money. Good idea, but some current face will have to be removed. I make the argument in this week’s column that President Andrew Jackson should stay on the twenty-dollar bill. If you happen to live in Louisiana, then there is even a stronger case for Jackson’s image to stay, as he played a vital role in saving New Orleans and the Bayou State from being taken over by the British.
