Louisiana’s Department of Corrections might want to rethink its budgetary poormouthing strategy, especially when there exist realistic solutions to cuts costs that take only the political will to implement.

The Boston Globe made some type of history this weekend when it published it's own projections of what America would look like--if it took Donald Trump at his word.

The magic number is 14.
On Thursday April 14, 2016 the gang at Politics with a Punch (Jeff Crouere and yours truly), will present its 14th Anniversary Show and you can bet it’s going to be a “classic” and might we add, "hysterical".  

 
Lisa Lloyd, Shark Tank first-season alum, recently featured on the show's epilog, Beyond the Tank, new resident of New Orleans, licensing expert, a consultant for Daymond John, resident for entrepreneur accelerators and business-owner, just won't take defeat.
