TEN YEARS AGO, KATRINA TRIED TO WASH US AWAY!

images c Sfsz

Just as most Americans remember where they were on 9/11, those of us living on the Gulf Coast remember well the fear and concern that enveloped our region ten years ago this week. A lady named Katrina changed many of our lives. In looking back, many Louisianans felt that maybe New Orleans really was a city that care forgot, and the whole Gulf Coast was thrown in for good measure. This human tragedy has haunted the Bayou State over the past decade as even today the rebuilding effort continues.  Check out my new column about this terrible tragedy.  You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Remembering Katrina in New Orleans!

We are rapidly approaching the 10th year anniversary of Katrina. If you are not from the Gulf South, you world find it hard to imagine the terrible toll this storm had on so many of us down here. Over 1000 killed, mainly in the New Orleans area. But New Orleans has a special ability to weather the worst, even if it’s call the City that Care Forgot. My old friend, Vince Vance, is a well know New Orleans rock and roll singer who has performed for years. It’s well worth your time to listen and watch his special tribute to the Crescent City below.

GET HEALTHY-DRINK MORE COKE?

imagesZXSXs

We continually hear of new evidence proving that diet is the key to health and weight loss. Health Think Tanks regularly report that sugar is particularly a dangerous ingredient in much of what we eat and drink. Sure, exercise helps, but what you eat and drink is key for wellness. So when a respected research center says differently, it seems puzzling and even suspect. Check out my new column that looks at a new study by the Pennington Biomedical Research Center. And you might be surprised at just who paid for their conclusions. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

A Mountain High!

I’m an avid biker, but bad knees and getting a little older limits my riding to fairly flat surfaces.  But in my younger years, I enjoyed dirt  biking and charging up and down hills.  I’m really envious of the fellow in the video below.  What a way to bike, and what a view.

LEGISLATURE STICKS IT TO INSURANCE POLICYHOLDERS!

imagesjjhgfruoi

Louisiana continues to have the highest insurance rates in the nation with any policyholders unable to pay the high cost. Certainly the legislature in the Bayou State should be giving some possible solutions a close look-right? Well, maybe not. In fact, in their way too often cavalier manner, this astute body of lawmakers raised the rates of both homeowners and folks who drive autos. That’s right. Get ready for an increase. Check out my new column, now posted, that looks at this troubling problem. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

SANCTUARY CITIES FLAUNT IMMIGRATION LAWS!

illegal-aliens-statue-of-liberty-political-cartoon

Why are there “Sanctuary Cities,” where illegal immigrants are immune from arrest for breaking the law, or cannot even be questioned when crimes are committed?  Some cities are opening up their arms to illegal immigrants, as crime rates rise, and (would you believe) the cost of auto insurance is tied to their being allowed to drive. Check out my new column now posted about the tolerance of illegals across the nation. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or By Clicking Here.

And take a  look at Ray Stevens’ funny but on point video about illegal immigration below.

Weekend Radio Schedule!

I’ll take our weekend radio program to Portland, Oregon this weekend, so we are looking forward to a more cool weather from the Pacific Ocean. We begin the show with guest David Sehat and his new book, THE JEFFERSON RULE: How the Founding Fathers Became Infallible and Our Politics Inflexible, shows how both the Left and the Right cite the Founders as though they would unanimously support widely divergent, even contradictory, present-day policies. Just what did Jefferson think? You can find out more on the book by Clicking Here.

5190yEkUanL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

We will continue our Thomas Jefferson discussion with author Mark Beliles. Thomas Jefferson and the founding fathers intended a strict separation of church and state, right? He would have been very upset to find out about a child praying in a public school or a government building used for religious purposes, correct? Actually, the history on this has been very distorted. Mark discusses all this in his new book, Doubting Thomas. See more by Clicking here.

61ssu7Wi4HL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

And finally, an update on the terrible shooting in Lafayette, Louisiana. Professor John Tures, a political science teacher at LaGrange College in Georgia, will be our guest to discuss domestic terrorism. So be sure to check local listings for times and stations. We will see you on the radio!

A Really Great Magician!

I really like to  see  good magic tricks.  I’ve sen David Copperfield several ties, along with a bevy of other really good magicians.  Here i really an exceptional fellow.Not only can illusionist Darcy make doves appear out of nowhere, he also has an even bigger trick up his sleeve.  Take a look.

Reuniting with Old Friend!

Here’s quite an inspirational story to share with you. A good story and good outcome. An English conservationist named Damian Aspinall was able to transfer captive gorillas back to wild of course with the help of the whole Aspinall Foundation.  Damian Aspinall took care of a gorilla he named ‘Kwibi‘ for 5 years and then it back to wild to have a normal life. After so many years, Damian decided to go look for Kwibi in the jungle.

He was quite losing his hope to never finding Kwibi again when a familiar gorilla suddenly appeared. And just like the old times, they bonded like father and son. Damian even fed Kwibi again and all of this was filmed and had already inspired lots of people! Take a look below.

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!

Radio 5

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. Will it all be about Donald Trump? Who has the best change to rise above the fray? We will talk about it.

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. You can read it now by going to the Flashing Red Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Radio Weekend Schedule!

A Great Patriotic Trick!

With Donald Trump disparaging our military heroes, here is some good entertainment and a fine ending recognizing those who serve to keep us free. A short video, but well worth watching. Take a look below.
