| Political Talk|| Does a quid pro quo exist that kept good rep. Senate candidates off the ballot? - I B Freeman on 10/23/14 at 10:30 am|
We see Mary's ad with Bollinger and the other big money republicans that have benefited from federal pork. I wonder if these guys put the word out to the state republicans the purse was closed if a good candidate entered the race??
Will Vitter collect huge contributions in his campaign for Govern...
| Political Talk|| Is Obama a typical republican???? - I B Freeman on 10/21/14 at 8:38 pm|
Interesting article in The American Conservative
[quote]They were not wrong. In my opinion, Obama has governed as a moderate conservative—essentially as what used to be called a liberal Republican before a...
| Political Talk|| Obama tells Sharpton red state democrats are really behind him - I B Freeman on 10/21/14 at 3:05 pm|
[quote]Speaking on the Rev. Al Sharpton's radio show, Obama said the Democratic candidates who had been avoiding him were actually "strong allies who have supported my agenda." Many of these candidates are in conservative-leaning states where Obama's agenda is decisively unpopular.
"And so some o...
| Political Talk|| In your mind what will Republicans do if they take the senate on these issues? - I B Freeman on 10/19/14 at 5:09 pm|
What will they advocate the President do with ISIS?
What will they do about earned income tax credits exploding?
What will they do about the massive increase in food stamp use?
What will they do about Obamaphones?
What will they do about farm welfare?
What will they do about the massively over ...

Have you heard any of these guys speaking against the billions we subsidize farming??
| Political Talk|| The Black Party seeks to increase turn out for Landrieu - I B Freeman on 10/19/14 at 12:42 pm|
It's just a fact that most democrats in Louisiana are black. That is true throughout the South. There are a relatively few white democrats. The democrats recognize that and know that black turnout is essential to Landrieu's success.
Landrieu is doing her part. She is organized.
The New York ...

like the film tax credits Duck Dynasty gets. I haven't heard back from him yet.
I will keep you posted.
| Political Talk|| Why do politicians want to manipulate the retirement age for SS??? - I B Freeman on 10/18/14 at 10:23 am|
You will recall at different times some democrats and republicans have all called for raising the retirement age of social security in order to "save" social security.
It disgusts me that this is position of Bill Cassidy. He wants to raise the SS retirement age to age 70.
Why anyone opposes pr...
| Political Talk|| Roger Villere sent me a letter--party needs EMERGENCY donation!! - I B Freeman on 10/17/14 at 7:31 pm|
That's what he said. He said the state GOP needs emergency money to insure Mary Landrieu is beat. At the bottom he said we needed to elect Cassidy.
So much for an impartial state party.
Anyway one of the very first rules in sales is to point out your advantages without mention of the competiti...
| Political Talk|| Many card carrying active Libertarians worried most about legal dope - I B Freeman on 10/17/14 at 9:04 am|
It seems to me when you meet an active libertarian and look at many of their candidates that legalizing dope is a central issue in their campaigns.
After deciding to vote for McMorris who I know very little about I decided to investigate some of their other candidates.
Charles Saucier is a c...

Many war hawks think we should put troops on the ground to fight them.
| Political Talk|| If you knew the Senate was going R without Cassidy would you vote for him? - I B Freeman on 10/16/14 at 4:29 pm|
Cassidy knows he is not conservative and is counting on conservatives, as he said, "to hold their noses" and vote for him.
That irked me pretty hard.
The only way I vote for the guy now is if him getting elected is the only way the republicans regain the Senate.
Good thing is we will know ...
| Political Talk|| Candidate McMorris takes the stands republicans should be touting. - I B Freeman on 10/14/14 at 12:50 pm|
[b]Reducing Debt and Spending[/b]
Government Debt is a direct assault on our Liberty. The US national debt is over 17 trillion dollars, $150,000 per taxpayer. The US has upwards of 127 trillion in unfunded liabilities, 1.1 million per taxpayer. This is unsustainable.
Tax Reform, rais...
| Political Talk|| It's important for republicans to vote for Brannon McMorris for Senate - I B Freeman on 10/14/14 at 12:26 pm|
McMorris is the libertarian in the race.
As a republican I hate my choices the party has served up. We have Cassidy a moderate boot licker and Maness, a guy with only military experience.
A run off is inevitable it appears.
Now is the time to give the Louisiana republican party a good slap ...
| Political Talk|| Reduction in number of state employees is a number Jindal should tout - I B Freeman on 10/12/14 at 12:05 pm|
Even though Jindal has spent every dollar that has come into the state treasury since becoming governor and has presided over a large increase in state debt his focus on reducing the number of state employees should be applauded. There are 30,000 fewer state employees now than 6 years ago.
| Political Talk|| Who resurrected Woody Jenkins? - I B Freeman on 10/10/14 at 7:15 pm|
Can you imagine the people in attendance at the GBR Pachyderm meeting at the Grand Asian Buffet to hear Woody Jenkins??
He should be relegated to the closet and certainly should not be out and about reminding people he was the weak, crack pot candidate that allowed Mary to get elected. [link=(htt...

How about a commercial wi...
| Political Talk|| Raven Savon--"I am American not African American" shocks Oprah - I B Freeman on 10/6/14 at 8:37 pm|
Oprah seems a bit taken back a black person would say they are not African American and promises Rave she will get lots of critical tweets. Oprah wants blacks to keep themselves separate it seems.
Oh yeah--Raven is not a gay American either.
| Political Talk|| Cassidy's commercial with the fat white women is just bad - I B Freeman on 10/6/14 at 8:19 pm|
Who is running this guy's campaign?? Is that an attempt to get the old women vote or something?
All he ever says is "Mary Landrieu is bad".
