You don't mess around with the Clinton's.

Which just might be what some might be thinking as Donna Brazile discusses her new and quite controversial book about the disruptive 2016 Presidential election in which Donald Trump beat all odds and the Democratic institution led by none other than Hillary and Team Clinton.

What is the real issue related to the Russian involvement in American elections of 2016? Who killed Seth Rich and why? Was the Democratic nomination process rigged?

rodney treasurer louisiana electionThe Louisiana Treasurer’s race could go down into history as a "most peculiar election”.  Or, how about, Louisiana’s Rodney Dangerfield race? Or, both?

When looking back at Saturday’s match ultimately won by John Schroder against Derrick Edwards, Simon and Garfunkel's "Most Peculiar Man" crosses my mind. If anything, the race a "stranger than strange" competition.  John Couvillon, one of the two panelists on Bayoubuzz's Facebook Live discussion this morning, has an interesting take. He looks at the race as the Rodney Dangerfield political clash, an election that simply got “no respect”.

New Orleans, has made strong advances in the area of technology over the years. This is largely due to numerous companies taking advantage of the Digital Media Tax Credits to help tech-based enterprises grow their respective businesses. At the beginning of this decade, GE Capitol opened up a large headquarters in the city which put a large skin on the wall to promote. Today, the city and the State of Louisiana announced they landed a really big one, DXC Technology, a multi-billion international enterprise that is one of the largest companies in the world. 

cantrell charonnetNow, for a New Orleans Mayor’s Race wrap:

LaToya Cantrell has become the money machine, not so, Desiree Charbonnet. The Inter-Denominational Ministerial Alliance, who already supported Desiree Charbonnet has injected itself into the race again, calling for Cantrell’s resignation, which prompted her quick rebuke.  Also, a date has been set for the WWL TV forum, two days from election day.

Will business in Louisiana go to pot?

color green 2With Louisiana, once again, getting ready to fall off of the fiscal cliff, would it be better for the state to go to pot?
