Re: “In Jefferson, a peaceful changing of the guard — but war is imminent

Was this Clancy Dubois' opinion or was he quoting the Sheriff or another politician when this was stated: Martiny is backed by Normand and most if not all Jefferson legislators. Impastato is Yennis candidate, though he will be loathe to admit it given Yennis scandal. Nevertheless, Yennis political forces all are lined up behind Impastato, including Yennis political consultant. ????

Re: “Clancy DuBos: Free speech vs. politics as usual

Been there, done that, got that tee shirt! Don't want it again, either. 20 years under the same Commissioner of Agriculture with all of "his unclassified employees" campaigning night and day + calling upon "classified employees" to do "special favors" for these "unclassified upper management" positions. E.G. "Hey, you live in New Orleans don't you...then do me a favor and stop by XXX Chicken plant and get what they give you and take that "gift" to this particular Black Congregational Reverend XXX and tell him that it's a gift from the commissioner" would mind doing your boss a favor now would you? I'll use the word "trump" here as if you refuse they will trump up a charge, even with a near perfect civil service record that will either get you fired or transferred into a job that will make you quit. So, I, for one, would like to see all "politics" taken out of civil service jobs. A civil servant realizes the low pay when he/she takes the job, why subject us to "kissing up" to unclassified employees just to keep that low paying job?

Re: “Editorial: Our pledge to you

It appears that Trump is just another liar. The wall/border has been abandoned. Using I.C.E. present laws to fine employers of illegals has been abandoned, and surely the round up of illegals has bit the dust on the first day after election day. The "Lock her up" has now been abandon, instead of allowing Commey of the FBI along with the newly appointed Attorney General to continue dragging the bottom of the cesspool trying to find more illegal activities on the Clinton Foundation. I suppose next to go is his promise to defend the 2nd Amendment. Face it folks, we bought a "pig in a poke".

Re: “The other other parties

This is the year of the maverick...lots of mavericks have lost out thus far in the Republican party along with several establishment RINO's. People want change! They want their country back from greedy politicians who simply DO NOT ACT. Now, believe me, I have researched the root cause of the "Do Nothing Congress" of 2014 & 2015 and came to the conclusion that the resulting log jam was the fault of a pact between the President, the V.P., and the U.S. Senate Majority Leader, who swore to shut down any and all actions of a Republican lead House of Representatives. 300+ bills were passed by the U.S. Congress in '14(of which 67 were passed with fewer than 25 Nay votes from House Democrats) which meant that a lot of Democrats voted for these Republican introduced bills. But due to the pact between these 3, the Senate Majority Leader tabled and pigeon hold all 300+ bills ,,, refusing to put them on the Senate Calendar for discussion from the full Senate, and refusing to refer them to the appropriate committee or subcommittee for review and or rewrite or add-ons. These 300+bills are still in his office(private storage). House Republicans were furious and retaliated by refusing to hear or refer any and all bills introduced to the House by the Senate, again even though many Senate Republicans signed off on/voted for these bills. Hence, a Do Nothing Congress was created. What this country needs is a constitutional amendment to limit the powers of both the Senate Majority Leader and the Speaker of the House so that bills referred to either must be referred to a committee or subcommittee for discussion or voted on and discussed before the full Senate and/or the full House within X number of days. I would suggest 120 days max. We do NOT need to put all our hope into a president, Democrat or Republican. We need to demand that both the House and the Senate change their rules or by vote of 2/3's of all 50 state legislatures we will make it a Constitutional Amendment. Then and only then will we get rid of "Do nothing Congresses for good!"

Re: “Mary Landrieu and the TV ad

I am a fairly active email person, e.g., sending emails about my viewpoints, to the politicians whom I have voted for. Here's the results: My state representative Julie Stokes responds to about 95% of my emails and either her or her assistant explains why she supports or does not support certain bills or issues. My state senator Danny Martini responds to about 5% of my emails concerning any bills or issues that I have concerns about. U.S. representative Steve Scalise responds to about 5% of my emails concerning any bills or issues that I concerns about. U.S. senator David Vitter also responds to about 5% of my emails concerning bills or issues that I have concerns about. U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu responds to about 85% of my emails that I have concerns about a certain bill or issue; however, even though I most of the time disagree with her responses, someone in her staff is doing a good job in replying to constituents. Now, each of these politicians do have their own newsletter or website that shows their work; but nothing that explains the specifics that I am concerned with. In other words, they dance to their own music and have their own agenda. Locally, Ben Zahn, my Jefferson Parish Councilman, responds not only with emails but sometimes will show up personally at your door. City of Kenner councilperson, Maria Defranche always answers my problem emails and 80% of the time is involved in solving any problems that I bring to her attention. Back to Senator Mary Landrieu, even though she is responsive to 85% of my emails, she also is 85% too liberal/progressive in her economic, social, and military beliefs as to what would be best for this nation than I am. She has a good heart and truly feels she is doing a great service to Louisiana and this nation; but, progressive ideas are a proven world wide failure. Even the European countries are turning away for progressive ideas and are incorporating more conservative ideologies.

Re: “Debunking Big Oil's big lie

Nail on the head...soon there will be NO marshland. Each and every time that I fly in or out of New Orleans I am amazed at the amount of open water that has encroached upon this metropolitan area. 25 years ago you saw only Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas, Barataria Bay, Lake Salvador, the marsh/swamp land west of the airport and a wide strip of land following the Mississippi river to the there is nothing but water surrounding the GNO area and there is a small trail of land each side of the Mississippi river unto the Gulf. Now there is absolutely nothing standing between Gretna/Westwego and the Gulf, the wetlands west of the airport have all but disappeared and have been replaced with brackish water pools...the whole region is now an island.

Re: “Kenner endorsements

I would reconsider voting for Conley simply for the fact that he could not manage his own business affairs and went bankrupt...why would one vote for a candidate that has a lack of money management qualifications onto a council that deals with such? Dennopolis seems to be the lesser of the two evils as he at least seemed to do a fairly good job as the 5th district councilman in previous years.
