Fiscal cliff: What should be done?

EDITORS NOTE: This is a first of a series of articles on the “fiscal cliff” crisis facing Louisiana today.
Louisiana is facing a $1 billion plus fiscal cliff this coming July, and our Legislative leaders appear to be at a crossroad on how to fix the problem. The Edwards Administration wants to only raise taxes, but the House only wants to cut spending. After more than a year working on this, we appear to be hopelessly paralyzed.

Nancy Pelosi: Sham ‘Shero’

Finally, Nancy Pelosi’s faux feminist veneer has fully cracked.
The Democratic “shero” is, and always has been, a sham. But after Pelosi’s incoherent babblefest on “Meet the Press” defending accused groper John Conyers and clown-cad Al Franken, the progressive left can no longer mask her partisan perv apologism.

Still paying for Christmas 2016?

It’s beginning to look a lot like debt collectors, everywhere you go…
According to the NerdWallet personal finance website, a distressing number of shoppers are still paying off credit card bills from last Christmas.
NerdWallet’s survey shows that 24 percent of Millennials, 16 percent of Generation X and eight percent of Baby Boomers are still trying to recover from the doorbusters, layaway treasures and stocking stuffers of 2016 — and avoid LIVING IN A SNOWPLOW DOWN BY THE RIVER.

How about listening to each other?

“I’m afraid to discuss politics and current events with anyone except my wife and best friends, and it’s regrettable that millions of Americans feel the same way.”
“Ah, yes, you speak of the Cato 2017 Free Speech and Tolerance Survey, a new national poll of 2,300 U.S. adults. It finds that 58 percent of Americans are afraid to share their political beliefs in the current political climate.”

A prayer for peace

But the prayer he uttered outside a home on Logan Street in Harrisburg on a chilly night last week for Kaliah Dearing, 16, and Natasha Harner, 24, who had been found shot dead there, carried the same weight as if they’d been uttered by a man or a woman of the cloth.
“This really is the time for us join together and ask some very important questions,” Henry said. “What is love? What is love? Does love really conquer all or not? That’s why we’re here. God is everything or God is nothing, right?”
As someone shouted out an “Amen,” Henry continued.
