Put the blame on the Trump haters

It’s impossible to argue with Rush Limbaugh.
When Rush said the nut job who shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four others at a D.C. baseball field on Wednesday was radicalized by the leftwing establishment media, he’s absolutely correct.
Everyone in Washington has been urging us not get into a political blame-game like the ones that followed the shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Gifford in 2011 or the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.
Pardon my French, but “BS” on that.

A congressman and killings in New Orleans

A New Orleans congressman tragically was shot while he was out playing baseball. Luckily, it looks like he will fully recover. Some of those who first heard the news assumed that he had been shot in New Orleans. You see, killings have become a way of life in the Crescent City.
The Queen City of the South is under siege.  No, not from hurricanes. This time, the siege is from within. New Orleans is known as the city that care forgot.  But it’s been hard to let the good times roll in the Big Easy when the dice keep coming up snake eyes.

Planes, trains, boats, trucks or pipelines?

Here in this soon-to-be-great nation, we Americans take a lot for granted. From our freedom and safety, to our low cost food and fuel, we just tend to forget, especially the younger generations. There is also something that goes on twenty four hours a day, 365 days a year that we totally take for granted and that’s moving the products from point A to point B.

Old-school dad imparted great lessons

My father made me wear hand-me-downs — even though I was our family’s only boy, with five sisters.
It wasn’t too bad most of the year, but Easter Sunday was a bear. You know how hard it is to outrun the neighborhood bully with your panty hose bunching up and your bonnet flopping in the wind?
My father was born during the Depression, in 1933, when life was a lot tougher. When he was only 3, his father, who had a good job working for the Mellon family, died at age 34.

Are we all federal criminals?

Congress is going “new law” crazy. In the nation’s capitol, hundreds of proposed new laws are being introduced every month, creating numerous different regulations and crimes.  And Louisiana congressional members are joining right in this push for more federal intrusion into what was previously the purview of the states.
