The state Republican Party has spent $50,000 on efforts to fight a potential recall of House Speaker Chuck Kleckley of Lake Charles, who is a target of teachers for his support of Governor Bobby Jindal's education package in the recent legislative session.  The Party reported expenditures, including TV spots, that have been run in support of Kleckley and says more spending to help him fight the recall effort against him and the Governor are inevitable. 
Governor Bobby Jindal's veto of funding for a correction facility in Pineville and deep cuts to the state hospital there have left Central Louisiana Republicans fuming.  Republican Representative Chris Hazel of Ball said, "He spends money like a drunken sailor on things that he wants, but cuts things that provide services to the community."  Hazel said Jindal has been traveling the country promoting himself but "he dislikes Louisianans; he dislikes Louisiana."  Representative Robert Johnson of Marksville said, "I think this Governor is mean-spirited and vindictive."  It is estimated that Central Louisiana will lose 300 jobs as a result of Jindal's cuts. 

 

Governor Bobby Jindal announced the resignation of longtime Revenue Secretary Cynthia Bridges late Friday after news broke that she expanded an alternative fuel tax break which the Governor promptly halted.  Bridges has served 12 years as Revenue Secretary, under three Governors.  The announcement comes on the heels of Jindal slashing the budgets of political rivals Treasury Secretary John Kennedy and Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne. Also this week, Jindal announcement vetoes on several bills passed by legislators who had opposed some of the Governor's education package bills, with one legislator stripped of his title as vice chairman of a legislative committee.  

 Following years of revelations about devious acts by priests and the Vatican, be it sexual exploits or sinister financial deals, the Catholic hierarchy in Rome has decided to fight back by attacking nuns.  In fact, the Holy Sea has focused on U.S. Nuns as its target in attempting to purge open thought from some women scholars who are well known and respected in an organization representing over 80% of American Nuns from a variety of holy orders.  Often whispered but rarely discussed by the vast majority of Louisiana Catholics, this attitude and moves by the church to become more political and partisan leave many worshipers wondering if this is the church in which they were raised.  CNN reports on a Vatican out to silence the word of its nuns.  
 There is a smug elitism demonstrated by a few politicians, whose families earlier sought a better life in the U.S., when discussing the plight of new American immigrant populations.  The liberties and freedoms that immigrants have enjoyed throughout our history goes forgotten by a few of the Republican elite as they venture to Tea Party states hoping to enhance their attractiveness as right wing Vice Presidential contenders.  Take Mark Rubio, for instance, who would deny children basic rights to pursue their education and live healthy lives as future tax paying citizens, much as his family was allowed.  Marc Rubio touts that being a Cuban exilie is his claim to legitimate immigrant status, but as pointed out by the Washington Post, his family came to Miami in 1956 and sought a green card to enjoy the benefits of America, far earlier than 1959, when most would agree that the Rubio family was exiled.  So what is in the mindset of a Rubio or Jindal who, allowed to preach the gospel of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, now turn their back on many of their own kind, the kind in the history of most all of us, immigrants, who made this country great?

A few weeks ago, Public Service Commissioner Jimmy Field, 72, was planning to seek his third six-year term, but abruptly made calls and announced Friday that he will not run.  Rumors had been flying that Field would face opposition from Department of Natural Resources Secretary Scott Angelle, which would shift control of the district from the Baton Rouge area to the Lafayette region.  Read why Field decided not to run at the link below.
