| Political Talk|| What is wrong with what the libertarian candidate for Senate says?? - I B Freeman on 9/14/14 at 9:46 pm|
I didn't even know his name until tonight. Republicans better hope he fails to get his message out because if he draws even 5% Mary goes back for sure.
Who here disagrees with what he says here:
| Political Talk|| Prediction--Landrieu will keep her seat - I B Freeman on 9/14/14 at 9:35 pm|
The state republican party is pathetic.
Landrieu should be luck to get more than 40% but she is going to win on very light conservative turnout and independents are going for Mary.
It was the Rs to take. Most liberal senator in the South and we can't beat her.
Hope I am wrong....

This idea advance by John Bel Edwards and his trial lawyer buddies that a person that takes no responsibility has the same rights under as our tort system...

If the liberals and the race profiteers and race whiners could select a dictator to change things to exactly how they would like what would they want?
We are now more than 40 years after the great society and the CRA and it seems we hear more about the poor and racism than we have in years. Do p...
| Political Talk|| Police make their own job harder - I B Freeman on 8/15/14 at 11:34 am|
In the MO protest it is obvious the military like actions taken by the police greatly aggravated the situation.
The police today led by the Governor appointed black state policemen are approaching this right. He is in effect helping to organize a peaceful protest which absolutely the right of the...
| Political Talk|| When will there be riots over black on black shootings??? - I B Freeman on 8/15/14 at 8:54 am|
It is terrible the police shot an unarmed teen in Missouri. We have laws to deal with that. It does not give anyone a pass to destroy and loot private property.
Of course after Katrina no one was prosecuted in Orleans Parish for looting.
I don't recall a law that says blacks can loot.

Can you believe people want to fight a more demanding curriculum in Common Core after watching the state spend hundreds of billions on Louisiana schools and getting no real progress?
| Political Talk|| Will jealously and sports in private schools kill Louisiana school vouchers? - I B Freeman on 8/10/14 at 8:07 pm|
There is a perception in some private schools that vouchers are being used to recruit athletes from public schools. I don't doubt some of that is going on.
Unfortunately in some of the private schools every black child is thought to be receiving a voucher. I don't think it is racism so much as ju...

We know lots of examples of families of politicians profiting from their name and/or their access to political power.
