Who approved these large billboards on Cockerham? They even stuck one right at a large curve. This is just inviting drivers to read instead of watching the road. Didn’t they just lower the speed limit on this road? But distracting billboards are allowed. Makes sense.

The middle-aged and certainly our elders are wondering what’s has happened to our young people who are so callous and vile especially in the gang-banging communities. Look no further than the likes of Snoop Dog. I hate to even type his name, but there’s your foul-mouthed, lasitious (sic), disgusting, sorry excuse for a role model, which I might add Obama and the left love, I’ve ever seen.

The Orange-Man has been in the White House for almost 60 days, and has been the classic Keystone Kop. Trump’s national security advisor got the axe and then called his predecessor ‘sick’ for taping Trump Tower, while his attorney general, CIA director, and FBI director say that did not happen. Then the Trumpmeister’s Muslim ban lost not once, but four times in the federal courts. Yep, Trump is the ringmaster in a 3-ring circus, and has his little monkeys jumping around like Mexican jumping beans! Lock him up! (In Mandeville)

It looks like the vast left wing conspiracy theorist have gone loco.

Pulitzer Prize winning Politifact.com called the Media Research Center’s claim that George Soros funded the Day Without Women protest as a “Pants on Fire” falsehood. The Media Research Center is a right wing organization run by the fascist nutcake Brent Bozell, a liar and slanderer, who has paid out $ millions for his false accusations. Real journalists provide real facts.

Sure, Republicans want limitations on medical lawsuits because 250,000 patients die every year due to medical errors (2016 study by Johns Hopkins Hospital). One million patients suffer harm each year while being treated, more receive substandard care or costly over-treatment. Patients should expect, at a minimum, to receive the quality and kind of service that another legal professional would provide under the same circumstances and consistent with generally accepted standards of care. Republicans in Congress want to limit your rights for monetary damages when a physician kills or maims your husband, wife, or child. If you think these statistics are bad, look at the number and kinds of reprimands physicians and medical professionals receive annually by state medical licensing boards across America.

It’s preposterous to believe that by throwing more money at a position that it will automatically mean that more qualified people will choose to run for the office. Increasing the pay does not ensure better decision making either.

I noticed that the City of Denham Springs wasted no time capitalizing on the death of the child on Cockerham Road. The speed limit was lowered by ten miles per hour and the DSPD immediately started enforcing it with tickets, not warnings. I have not gotten a ticket but I have seen several people receiving them. It is really sad that the city sees it as an opportunity to enhance their coffers. If they were really interested in safety, they would be out in the open, not hiding with RADAR or LASER guns.

I think people who are on Obamacare and like it should get to keep it. However they should have to pay for it themselves, “seeing how it’s so cheap.” The rest of us should get to choose, “a term the left loves.” Oh, and also the rest of us will pay for our own which should be cheaper seeing how we don’t have to pay for theirs and ours. It’s not my place to support them. I have a hard enough time supporting my family working 15 hours a day, while most of them sit around getting fat and having babies they can’t afford.

Your editorial of March 17 stated, “Bring our roads into the 21st century.” That is a noble and much needed goal. Livingston Parish has not had a new state road in ninety nine years! How about starting with extending Juban Rd. to Lockhart?

“The common view of Democratic policies is that they favor regulation and higher taxes which are economy killers. Well, for those who feel this way it may be time to review the last 80 years of economic history: Personal disposable income has grown nearly 6 times more under Democratic presidents; GDP has grown 7 times more under Democratic presidents; Corporate profits have grown over 16%/ year under Democratic presidents, and declined under Republicans by an average of 4.53%/year; Average annual compound return on the stock market has been 18 times greater under Democratic presidents; If you invested $100k for 40 years of Republican administrations you had $126k at the end, if you invested $100k for 40 years of Democrat administrations you had $3.9M at the end; Republican presidents added 2.5 times more to the national debt than Democratic presidents; The two times the economy steered into the ditch - the Great Depression and Great Recession - were during Republican, laissez faire administrations.” Forbes Magazine.

I think the biggest reason we’re seeing so many anti-Trump marches is because Trump is white.

If you think socialism is cool, have a whiff. Venezuela has a bread shortage. The government has decided bakers are the problem. Socialism is becoming communism in Venezuela.

If you are a senior on Medicare, a repeal of Obamacare would restore higher payments for services performed under Medicare Advantage plans, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation analysis. Repealing the law would end guarantees that free preventive services be provided to Medicare patients and could also raise premiums, out-of-pocket costs, or both. Repeal would also reverse provisions of Obamacare that reduced the amount that Medicare seniors pay for medicines when “closing the doughnut hole” is eliminated. If you are not on Medicare, there is a chance that you could be one of the 58 million Americans left without health insurance. To borrow a quote from the president, “Not good. Bad.”

Our Liar-in-Chief’s approval rating has fallen to 37 percent this week, lower than any commander-in-chief at this point in their first term since the polling company started tracking the issue in 1945.
