Today is the feast of Saint Valentine and…oh what’s that, you have never heard “Saint” put before “Valentine” and thought that the namesake of the day was taken from a scorned, 20th century actor named “Valentino”? Well pull up crate of candy samplers and lend an ear. Like many of our traditions or rather the customs we have witnessed that produce positive results, Saint Valentines day has its origins in Christianity.….Continue
Before the Material Tramp could even be seen at the start of Sunday’s NFL SuperBowl halftime show, I knew there would be trouble. At least the Romans had the courtesy to kill off most of the ribald participants in their gladiator games whereas the NFL makes you sit through being flipped off while the musical gladiators are applauded. If you can find it, this is good work that pays millions but I wonder how many Americans who watched this performance prefer the gladiator’s….Continue
That NFL Commish Roger Goodell has got some nerve. Nerve enough to have subjected hundreds of millions worldwide to the lewd sexcapades of Madonna, M-I-A, Fergie, Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson but now his league has grown a conscience over the practice of “bounties” paid to Saints defensive players for allegedly inflicting injuries on opposing offenses. Brett Favres bobos will heal but the collective damage done to the public’s threshold for good taste by Goodell/N….Continue
Supreme Court Justice Potter Stuart once famously quipped that he could not provide a description for indecent material “...but I know it when I see it.” State circuit court judge Tim Kelley recently struck down the LA School Voucher program citing clauses from the LA Constitution that do not appear in the document; thus I assume Judge Kelly must rely on Stuart’s adage that he “...knows an unconstitutional act when he sees it.” Check out the rest in today's Church Do….Continue
On the ballot for Who Dats this Nov 6th, is yet another Amendment to the LA Constitution but this one comes in the form of a NEW, improved, “2nd Amendment”! Governor Jindal is out promoting this Amendment as a way “to secure our freedom” so local law enforcement cannot act as anarchists and confiscate guns after another Katrina, this amendment will NOT accomplish that. Check out the rest in the Church Doctrine...….Continue
The Who Dat City’s media is all abuzz over the news that UNO’s enrollment is down by 800 students1. LSU, LA Lafayette and LA Tech were also affected by the state legislature’s wise decision to drop, as in cold turkey, remedial courses for freshman from the state’s “Institutions of higher learning”.….Continue
In last week’s presidential Debate, Mitt Romney famously promised to “eliminate any agency or program we have to fund by borrowing money from China”. This include PBS and Big Bird. Romney’s test for Federal survival is much ballyhooed by “conservatives” who aren’t very “conservative” these days. If you need a test for whether or not to fund something Governor, try looking it up in here. If it doesn’t appear in an enumerated power than regardless of what Jac….Continue
If there is any truth to the adage that “misery loves company” then a majority of the New Orleans Saints fans must be connecting with President Obama today as both the Saints & the President are winless in their respective seasons. The Saints losses have been mainly self inflicted while the Presidents loss in last night’s debate is inspired by what he has helped most of us lose: our wealth, civil liberties and virtue. I may be the only conse….Continue
Presidential Debates: To Light Torches, or Torch the Lighters? ©2012 Mike Church For Washington's Inaugural Address, click here! At the start of every Olympic Games there is a torch lighting ceremony featuring a torch that has been carried around the planet by various athletes and dignitaries. The ceremony makes the start of the olympic games official and adds some aura of tradition as well. At the start of tomorrow night’s “debate” between Mitt Romney & President O….Continue
When in Rome do as the Roman’s do or as we might say in 2012 Louisiana do as the Madoffs do. Last week I reported that Governor Bobby Jindal has boasted of conning the all too willing Federal Leviathan into “covering” 85% of the State’s Hurricane Isaac costs. Well not to be outdone in the mad rush for Pyhrric money, now I can wonder how the citizens of dry as a bone Tulsa OK feel about the Federal lottery Mayor Landrieu just hit1 for $27.3 million in “Isaac reimburse….Continue
Don’t Use Public Money To Buy Right Or Left Wing Fried Chicken Dinners - Louisiana’s one of a kind school voucher program is now in effect and judging by the howls of righteous indignation coming from the usual suspects on the left it must be working. Times Picayune columnist Jarvis deBerry informs us that “Public money is now being used to send children to private schools … and taxpayers deserve to know … that it isn't merely funding a right-wing belief that the gov….Continue
Our Emperors Have No Clothes (or Money) ©2012 Mike Church Here is shocking headline number 1 “Louisiana faces cuts in its $7 BILLION Medicaid program”. Here is shocking headline number 2 “This will have a devastating effect on the people served”. That second headline is a real humdinger of an oxymoron because the “people served” by the government of Louisiana are the people that pay taxes to live here, that’s why we have a governmen….Continue
New Orleans - Where The Streets Have No Pave? ©2012 Mike Church The mean streets of the French Quarter are about to get a makeover courtesy of the brokest broke nation in the history of broke nations and a road building scam called “Paths to Progress” which is more appropriately titled “Paths to Insolvency”. The program promises $65 million worth of repairs1. Some of you might wonder why anyone would have a problem with the Feds showering….Continue
Jonathan Vilma-Federalist? ©2012 Mike Church When Who Dats ask me why I persist in promoting and explaining Louisiana as a sovereign state and the “federalism” that comes along with our voluntary membership in the union, I will now answer: Johnathan Vilma. Vilma, the beleagured New Orleans Saints player is suing NFL commish Roger Goodell for defaming his character without providing proof of the slur. Goodell’s response is that Vilma ….Continue
5 Men That History Says Were Important But Never Played For The Saints ©2012 Mike Church On the 28th of June, 1776 5 men strolled into Philadelphia’s Independence Hall with a document in hand. While most Americans today can name 10-15 members of their favorite football or basketball teams how many can name those five? Oh and the document was? The Declaration of Independence although not the one you are familiar with today. Jefferson’s draft that was presented had o….Continue
If A President Has A Secret Kill List He Can’t Be A U.S. President ©2012 Mike Church The Monday edition of the New York Slimes blared the headline “Secret Kill List Proves A Test of Obama’s Principles”. This of course assumes that OUR principles matter not, seeing as how our royally “elected” dictators cannot locate any restrictions on the extent of their powers in the Constitution. Constitutions aside I have to wonder just what kind of “freedom” citizens of t….Continue
Memorial Day: A Lot More Than Hot Dogs & The D-Day Museum ©2012 Mike Church Most folks think of Memorial Day as the day that kicks off summer or the day that the great-American-hot dog notches its first outdoor cooking of the year. For those that commemorate the holiday with solemn remembrances of Our war-dead this is mostly confined to wars of the last 75 years: WW II, Korea, Vietnam and most recently Iraq & Afghanistan. While these wars certainly deserve thei….Continue
©2012 Mike Church A few months back I threw out the idea that this fuddy duddy little document here, the U.S. Constitution, gave the State Courts near exclusive power over any cases concerning foreign countries and a state. I was told that the Constitution didn’t matter because the Editors of the Times Picayune and some publicly funded marine biologists had oil scarred dolphins and turtles to care for. Well the same dolphin wrap newspaper reports the joyous news today1 that….Continue
