Mandeville, LA - Today's Church Doctrine covers the minimum wage using the genius of Thomas Jefferson and Ludwig von Mises. Forward this to all your lib friends and watch the outrage and spittle fly (rain pancho sold separately). In his inaugural address Thomas Jefferson cautioned Americans to “...not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned.”1 Jefferson was talking about government staying out of the affairs of industry, adding that a wise government….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - “Happy Thanksgiving!” goes the oft cited phrase and indeed this year there will be plenty to give thanks for. Despite the stubborn rate of unemployment, the growing sea of red ink our government is swimming in and a corrupt culture from Baton Rouge to music award stages starring half naked hipsters simulating coitus, still we give thanks.….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - Why is Rep. Steve Scalise spending an Israeli lobbyist’s money? Oh wait, he only accepted the “gift” as a way to spare taxpayers the expense of funding his seven day trip to Israel to meet with Israeli leaders. Gee I wonder why he’d want to do that? Well it may have something to do with his embrace of “our closest ally in the region” which thus necessitated his immediate rejection of the deal negotiated with the Iranians over thei….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - South Baton Rouge has a problem: they don’t like their neighbors. To be specific, they don’t like the way their neighbor’s kids behave in school, the way those kids videotape fights for the joy of posting them online and the fact that they have to subsidize this behavior. Welcome to the soon to be incorporated city of St George, LA whose residents believe their city can serve “as a model... for the United States”.….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine Video - Back in August I commented on the ridiculous court case the Obama InJustice Department is pursuing against Louisiana’s school voucher system. Yesterday federal judge Ivan Lemelle confirmed that the state has to comply with Holder’s information requests before issuing vouchers. This is supposedly necessary because of the 1975 desegregation case Brumfeld v. Dodd but that is just a ruse. As I pointed out back in August and will point o….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - Nancy Pelosi and Senator Mary Landrieu need to compare notes. Landrieu, quite possibly the most under-informed member of the United States Senate that is filled with intellectual wunderkinds like Senator Patty Murray. But Murray may be a Rhodes Scholar compared to Landrieu. When asked if ObamaCare was Constitutional, Landrieu told a reporter “[w]ell, we’re very lucky as members of the Senate to have constitutional lawyers on our staff,….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - When Andrew Jackson showed up to meet the invading British in New Orleans, he stopped at the Ursuline Convent to visit and then pray to Our Lady of Prompt Succor1 with Sister St. Michel and the Ursuline sisters. We know how this story ends but many don’t know that Jackson made regular stops at Ursuline Convent whenever he was in New Orleans.2 The power of prayer has thus been sought and revered in New Orleans for centuries. Inside the Super….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - Question: Have you told your children lately that “there’s no such thing as a free lunch?” Have you told them that “money don’t grow on trees?” Before answering those questions here are two more. “Have you ever heard of the Federal Reserve” and “have you ever heard of the Food Stamp program?” Well if you answered “yes” to question 3 then you already know that money grown from trees “pays….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - “If you like your gumbo the way you make it, you can keep making it,” said health and cajun food President Crawback Andouilleama two years ago when the affordable Gumbo Act passed the House of Pancakes.….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - So you went to healthcare.gov to buy a health insurance plan, wait scratch that, most folks went to healthcare.gov to get in line for their “fair share” of “health care” in the form of subsidies the Feds promise for anyone who cannot pay their own way. Note the use of the terms here “health insurance” vs “health care”. ….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - When I think of the US Air Force I think of its theme song “Off we go, into the wild blue yonder… nothing can stop the US Air Force,” nothing except a misunderstood use of the first Amendment. You see, the Air Force Academy is under fire for asking cadets to recite its oath, “[w]e will not lie, steal or cheat nor tolerate among us anyone who does. Furthermore, I resolve to do my duty and live honorably, s….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - How’s this for the tag line of the next edition of TV’s latest “reality show”, “[t]hey sent me to prison for life but I came back with a good looking wife”? It is no joke that the sheer amount of infamous celebrities this country produces would make identifying this quote’s author nearly impossible so let me add “ex-governor” and “ex-con” to the mix. Well, that gets us closer but Rob Blagojevich fans will be disappointed….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - In his essay “The Law”, Frederic Bastiat identified the fatal tendencies of free people. “[T]here is also another tendency that is common among people. When they can, they wish to live and prosper at the expense of others.” This helps explain why the number of Americans on Food Stamps has expanded from 25 million in 2008 to 47 million this past June. While this has occurred something else has been in decl….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - New Orleans is a famously haunted city. The TV series American Horror Story is currently being filmed here and features a cast member named for the diabolical Delphine LaLaurie. Fans of the show delight in being scared out of their bowels by something that is as likely to happen as lightning striking them whilst inside the Superdome.….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine Video - If I were conducting driver education classes and told you to be prepared to switch from safe driving techniques to the “Ricky Bobby” method you might get excited to meet Will Ferrell but as soon as that flight of fancy wore off you would wonder where the Ricky Bobby For Dummies manual was. You would thus find yourself in the same position most LA public school teachers are in today with the latest egom….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - On 5 March, 1836 Colonel William Barrett Travis famously drew a line in the sand at the Alamo, asking for volunteers to cross the line with him and defend the fort or stand their ground and flee to safety. Of the 180 men gathered not one took the option to flee. Fast forward to today, 230 Congressmen have voted to “defund” the moral and Constitutional atrocity that is ObamaCare, they are being threatened wit….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - If the media hyped “government shutdown” ever becomes a movie, I think it should be called Bride of NOT-Frank-enstein because of the 535 member Congress are but a handful who will deal frankly with the issues at hand. The self-made, “shutdown” narrative promoted by “the media” is that “our nation” is on the precipe of improving the lives of all humanity through the dark art of government run medical insurance if we will only f….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - If Secretary of State John Kerry were to critique the violence that rips through the streets of New Orleans and compare it to the alleged chemical violence of the mean streets of Damascus, Syria he would no doubt thunder that “children dying of asphyxiation by chemical weapons must not be allowed to go unanswered!” Really!? Would you like to tell that to the mother of 1 year old Londyn Samuels who was killed with her 18 year old babysitte….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - The British Parliament is made up of two houses, the House of Lords and the House of Commons. There are currently 650 members of Parliament or MP’s in the House of Commons1. The Commons are supposed to be representative of the people and when they were recently asked to defy the people and vote “aye” on a resolution to join the United States in bombing Syria’s legitimate government back “to the stone ages” they voted “nay”. ….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - On Saturday last, President Obama announced to the world that he was seeking an authorization1 to use military force against “The Syrian regime” or what used to be called The Assad administration2. While Obama claimed he did not need to gain Congress’s blessing he would seek it anyway. The press quickly sprang into action asking all the wrong questions of all the wrong people like “will the Congress side with the President”? The pro….Continue
