Are you going to vote early, either by mail or by casting an absentee ballot at a local polling prescient? Millions of Americans will. It projected that as many as 40% of voters will vote early in this coming presidential election. I share my personal experiences in this week’s column. You can take a look now but going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here. Be sure and cast your vote.

Funny Political Ad!

This is one of the best political ads I’ve seen this election cycle. Travis County, Texas Commissioner Gerald Daugherty is running for re-election, and his wife begs us to vote for him.  Really funny.  You should take a look.

National polls indicate a lack of interest on the part of younger voters in the coming presidential election. The youth of our county just, for some reason, jus does not seem to be plugged into to politics today. What are the reasons, and can politicians find a way to get these leaders of the future involved in the political process? I raise these questions in my new column that is now posted. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Weekend National Radio Schedule!


Weekend Radio is shaping up as a jam-packed and lively program. Can Donald Trump throw a “Hail Mary” and still pull out the election? And we will talk with author Dick Sim about his new book, “Freedom to Argue-We the People Versus They the Government.” Look at my nose clip protest below. We will talk with the creator, and have some fun. So tune in for a great program. Check local listings for times and stations all across America, and worldwide. See you on the radio.


Protesting the Election!


Well, I had to do something over my lousy choices for president. So I got me an official voter’s nose clip to hold my nose when I vote. It’s a modified clothespin engineered to comfortably seal one’s nostrils against the “toxic fumes” radiating from the presidential candidates. Americans today are suffering from “Voter Distress Syndrome,” a previously unknown condition caused by exposure to the names, images, voices, or statements of our presidential candidates. The clip is proven to alleviate the symptoms of Voter Distress Syndrome (except mental anguish–that’s unavoidable during this election).  The clips are available in red, white, or blue and can be ordered by Clicking Here.

Hangin’ with Doctor John!


I’ve known and listened to Dr. John off and on for some 50 years in New Orleans. It was a treat having him perform here in Baton Rouge Friday night. He told me I should have stuck with my guitar and forgotten politics. Boy, was he right about that. My favorite song of his is “Such a Night” performed by the Doc below.

October 12, 2016



If you watched the presidential debate last week, the only real winner was the guy who wore the red sweater and asked an intelligent policy question about energy. The debate by Trump and Clinton was devoid of any substantive discussion of important issues facing America. Healthcare costs are becoming  more and more unaffordable for many citizens, but the best that both candidates offer is either abolish or tweak what we have. Give both candidates an F on substance. See my new column now posted to tell you how serious the problem has become. You can read it now by going to the Flashing Red Box above, or by Clicking Here.



Weekend Radio Program Schedule!


So much to cover this weekend on our radio show. Does Donald Trump have any chance at all? Election day just three weeks away. What will happen? We will talk about it. Then author Tevi Troy joins us to talk about his new book, “Shall We Wake the President.” And how about the continuing mess in Syria? Reese Erlich is the author of “Inside Syria: The Backstory of Their Civil War and What the World Can Expect.” We will discuss. And finally, we will look at poll numbers with the Pollfish polling organization, trying to predict what will happen on election day. So tune in for a lively program. Check local listings for times and stations. We will see you on the radio.

Who Won Trump-Clinton Debate?

October 5, 2016



Here’s the question. Should a state public television station that is supported by taxpayer’s dollars be allowed to let a private group of businessmen to decide whom to include or not include in televised debates for the US Senate? There are 24 candidates running in Louisiana. But only five will be allowed to debate on the taxpayer funded television station. Is this fair? And how do we get to this point look first place? Louisiana has this “jungle primary” that allows any and all candidates to run same time. Is it time for change? All these are important questions as the November election looms close at hand. Check out my new column and see what you think. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Weekend Radio Update!


Our weekend programming schedules up and running, and we’re all set free lively Radio show on Sunday. There’s a new movie out based on the popular Bill O’Reilly book, Killing Reagan. We will talk to Director Rod Lurie. Then we will discuss the importance of whistleblowers, which bring wrongdoing to light with Michael McCray, a whistleblower himself. And finally, Jill Cody will discuss her book “Is American Democracy Dead?” And of course, I’ll give my take on the weird presidential election that takes place, and the critical presidential debate Sunday night. So stay tuned for a lively program. Check local papers for times and stations. See you on the radio.

The Red Mass!


The Red Mass is a very special ceremony that takes place at the St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans on Jackson Square on the first Monday of October. Judges and attorneys from over the state gather for the official opening of the Supreme Court and the legal year. The event is sponsored by the St. Thomas More Catholic Lawyers Association, and I’m honored to be a member, even though I’m not Catholic. It’s a meaningful way of bringing legal and religious doctrine together. Archbishop Aymond always attends, and I consider it an honor to be a part of this marvelous ceremony. Only a few major cities in the country hold a Red Mass, including Philadelphia, New York, Boston, and New Orleans. I’ll be there again next year. I’m pictured with Archbishop Aymond in front of the nation’s most beautiful cathedral.

Why Medical Costs Are So High!

It’s really amazing how much of an out-of-control beast our healthcare system has become after decades and decades of running totally unchecked. A couple in Utah had a baby a few weeks ago, and the guy just posted a copy of their hospital bill on Reddit that showed a $39.35 charge for, quote, “skin to skin after C-sec.” In other words, they were charged 40 bucks to hold their son after he was born. How can the hospital possibly think that’s a reasonable charge?

A labor and delivery nurse posted a response to explain it:  When a baby is born with a c-section in the operating room and the parents hold them right away, an extra nurse has to stay and monitor the baby to make sure they’re okay. And while that may be true, the consensus online is that it’s still a ridiculous thing to see on a hospital bill. Here’s a copy of the hospital bill below.









September 28, 2016



Our flagship university down in the Bayou State is in big trouble. The problems with the football coach you say? Well, not really. It’s supposed to be about getting a decent education. And that’s where the Big problems are at LSU. New college rankings have been released, and the state’s top college has plummeted in the listings. So what’s going on? Check out my new column now posted to get some insight. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

It’s Tough Growing Old!

I used to be a beach bum, and loved to hang out with all the pretty young girls weekend after weekend.  We do that here down South.  But we all grow old, and i guess there has to be some limitations.  Check out my old buddy below, who puts growing old in perspective.

September 21, 2016



Wow, talk about a dilemma for folks living down in the Bayou State. The first presidential debate will take place on Monday evening, September 28th. Obviously, this is important, and we will all be watching. But there’s a conflict. Our New Orleans Saints will be playing the very same time against arch-rival Atlanta Falcons. So what’s a Saints fan to do? Football or politics? I write about it my new column now posted. Take a look and tell me what you would do. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.


Weekend Radio Schedule!


Great program scheduled for this weekend. North Carolina Congresswoman Virginia Fox will discuss her book, “God in the House,” and the idea of legislating from a perspective of faith. Then Dr. John Michels will help me analyze why so many Americans have heart disease and are overweight. And finally, author Robert Martichenko will tell us what will happened if Trump wins the presidency and there is an onslaught of folks high tailing it to Canada. His book is called “Drift and hum: The Great Canadian-American Novel.” So tune infor a lively program. Check local listings for times and stations. See you on the radio.

Celebrity Roast in New York City!


My son-in-law Dan Senor was roasted at the Plaza Hotel in New York City this week by a number of political luminaries all gathering to put down Dan, and all in good taste. It was quite an evening as he was roasted by Mitt Romney, Speaker of the house Paul Ryan, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, Former Michigan Senator Spence Abraham, daughter Campbell, and even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. They all knew how to, as we say in Louisiana, “pass a good time.”
