Media ignores Trump’s economy

It’s surprising that a White House incapable of organizing a two-car funeral — if you believe the mainstream liberal media — is presiding over the most robust economy the U.S. has had in years. One could almost say it makes America great again.
Strange, isn’t it? The Obama administration boy and girl geniuses were managing up a storm when it came to the economy, yet growth was sluggish, wages stagnant and economic optimism was nowhere to be found.

Risk takers stick it to taxpayers

It’s been 10 years since the financial crisis on Wall Street filtered down through the insurance industry. Many national insurance companies were under siege, and even though Louisiana is a small state in population, policyholders were affected proportionally at a much greater degree than in most other parts of the country.

In defense of dumb country lawyers

I have a confession to make. And President Trump is not going to like it. I’m a southern country lawyer. Darn proud of it. In the president’s words, I may be a “dumb southern country lawyer.” I just hope the president does not have a sneering contempt for all of us Louisiana lawyers who cut our teeth practicing law in the rural areas of the Bayou State.

America has always been great

I never liked the campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.” The implication was that we’d entered some dystopian era in which America was unexceptional, unpleasant, and diminished. Watching the red-hatted #MAGA folk cheer at Donald Trump’s rallies angered me, because the passionate elders and enthusiastic youth were inspired by a flimsy myth, namely, that America was second-rate.

The Post-9/11 cycle of cynicism

Remember. Forget. Repeat.
For 17 years, America has engaged in a collective ritual every Sept. 11: Hang flags, light candles, bow heads and make vows to “Never forget.”
Then, every Sept. 12, it’s back to business as usual: See something, do nothing.
Did you remember that five of the 9/11 hijackers — Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, Hani Hanjour, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Satam al-Suqami — carried out their killer plot after overstaying their visas, evading detection and avoiding deportation?
