Perhaps the reader who commented our public schools are doing a “disservice by not teaching kids the difference between legal and illegal immigration” has his facts wrong. Louisiana student expectations for U.S. history regarding immigration include: “(U.S. 2.5) Illustrate the phases, geographic origins and motivations behind mass immigration and explain how these factors accelerated urbanization; (U.S. 2.6) Describe the challenges associated with immigration, urbanization, and rapid industrialization and evaluate the government’s response.” Louisiana’s public school student achievement ranks at the bottom because most parents do not put a priority on education. Louisiana parents have fewer college grads than any state and sadly this parish has even less.
Wouldn’t it be funny if Obama thought himself above the law and because he was sure Hillary was to take his place that he did wiretap Trump and now would have to go to jail. Man, this would be a great book even if not true.
Trump says in regard to his claim Obama wiretapped him, “This will be investigated; it will all come out. I will be proven right.” Someone’s lying. Be sure, your sin will find you out.
I think the Democrats need to realize that Trump is their new daddy and they should just sit back and enjoy the ride.
Boy, them anti-Trumpers are some nasties.
Obama allowed immigrants into the country so they could vote for him! Some folks actually believe this malarkey. U.S. immigration information is easy to find, and clearly points out that Mexican immigration, as a percent of our population, fell under President Obama compared with his predecessor. The greater contingent of immigrants under Bush/Obama came from India, China, the Philippines and Vietnam. According to the Koch Brothers’ CATO Institute, hardly a liberal organization: “There is just no two ways about it, President Obama initiated and expanded a harsher immigration enforcement regime than President Bush or any other president in American history.” Change the channel.
Seems to be the same mainstream media which is nothing more than the arm of the Democratic Party have been pushing for Trump to be removed from office because they know the trouble Obama may be in.
Former President Obama’s ACA legislation is popular! Actually, a February 2017 survey from the Pew Research Center found 54 percent of Americans approve of the Affordable Care Act, the highest level ever recorded by Pew, while 43 percent disapprove. As for controlling guns, Obama is in agreement with former Supreme Court Justice Scalia: “Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” Read the real news and you can get real facts.
A report from the Media Research Center found that billionaire leftist George Soros gave nearly a quarter of a billion dollars to groups that backed the “Day Without a Woman” protests Wednesday. Hey, isn’t that a “man” that supports Obama and Hillary? And why would these “women” take this “man’s” money? Hypocrites!
Donald Trump’s personality reminds me of Lt. Cmdr. Philip Francis Queeg during his court-martial in the 1951 Pulitzer Prize–winning novel “The Caine Mutiny.” Two wacko-birds extraordinaire.
The socialist Bernie Sanders says the GOP healthcare bill is Robin Hood in reverse. Go figure.
“Burger-Flipping Robot Replaces Humans On First Day At Work” “Flippy” the robot had a great first day on the job. Sweet, I’ll bet Flippy won’t be picking his nose or pulling his hair out of his face right before handling my food.
This is what the Office of the Director of National Intelligence had to say about Trump’s buddies in Russia: “We assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him. All three agencies agree with this judgment. CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment; NSA has moderate confidence.” Trump is a fraud and a Communist sympathizer and should be impeached.
Vice President Mike Pence was lying through his teeth about Obamacare this weekend, making Donald Trump look like the pope. Studies report that “family premiums for employer-sponsored insurance increased by 99 percent when Mike Pence was in United States Congress and George Bush was in the White House.” According to the same studies, “premiums for employer-sponsored family insurance rose 55 percent during the Obama administration.” Source: Kaiser Family Foundation-Health Policy Research /HRET studies, 2000-2016.
These days it seems as if all people are aware that the world is unraveling before their eyes. Even people who say they are Christians act as if they can’t believe it. The truth is the Bible has never been wrong about the past or present, and will not be about the future. Put your trust and hope in the Lord Jesus Christ and He will guide your steps and give you peace.
If you are an older American, this is what Trumpcare has in store for you: “Under the ACA, aka Obamacare, premiums for older people could not be more than three times the costs for younger people. Insurers now will be allowed to charge five times as much for seniors.”
In Thursday’s “Call and Comment” section of the paper, someone mentioned about the raise in pay for the Parish Council, that they thought it was a good idea that the raise would bring in people with better ways and thoughts about running this parish. I was just wondering WHY DID THAT PERSON THINK HIGHER PAY WOULD BRING IN BETTER IDEAS? Since some of our council members don’t show up for the meeting because of work, family or other reasons and still get paid, and have been doing the same thing ever since they were elected into that office. Seems to me that the same people will just be getting MORE money to do the same, less work.
Freedom. License. Anarchy. John Milton said, “None love freedom but the good man, the rest love not freedom, but license.” The ancient Greek, Sophocles, exclaimed, “Anarchy! Anarchy! Show me a greater evil.” The noted American writer Dorothy Fisher wrote, “Freedom is not worth fighting for if it means no more than license for everyone to get as much as he can for himself. For me, it seems we have progressed from civil rights to equal rights and now everyone’s eights. Everyone’s rights is the seed of anarchy and the death of freedom. President Ronald Regan commented, “Freedom is never more than a generation away from extinction.” Where are you with these three? It is apparent that too many do not realize that socialism is the first step to communism. Even more apparent, there are more who refuse that a Communist state rules everyone and everything. There are no freedoms. For the possibly uniformed, there’s hope for real freedom. This freedom comes through Jesus Christ. The cause of freedom is the cause of God. What future do our children have? Are they losing the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? If so, who is to blame? As I look around, I see none other than the totally self-centered, spiritually dead American. God have mercy on your children. They need a huge dose of hope.
I suggest that all elected parish officials follow the lead of President Trump and donate their salaries to charity at the end of the year. Then they can honestly call themselves “public servants.”
