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
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - Just 1 day after the anniversary of Reverend Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech I can happily report to you that when it comes to education, there are blacks and whites who agree that our efforts should be judged by the content of the results not the color of the participants. Ken Campbell is the President of a group called Black Alliance for Educational Option. On Tuesday, Campbell addressed Eric Holder’s InJustice Departme….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Church Doctrine - When Styx’s Tommy Shaw sang “too much time on my hands” he claimed to be a “jet fuel genius who can solve the world’s problems without even trying”. This must be what drives Attorney General Eric Holder to continue the unconstitutional federal intrusion into that most local of all issues: education.….Continue
Mandeville, LA - Mike Church's Church Doctrine - Senator C. Everett Dirksen is famously quoted saying “...a billion here, a billion there, pretty soon we’re talking about real money.” The problem is there is no documentary evidence Dirksen ever said this(1) but there is plenty of documentary evidence of the billions that Congress spends today, including the $585 MILLION that corrupted body is about to shell out to our new warlord buddies in Egypt; or are they?….Continue
When most people think of the Dutch they conjure up images of young boys on paint cans with thumbs ready to plug a leaking levee. Yet it was a Dutchman, one Johan Cruyff who coined the phrase “Coincidence is logical”(1). Today I not the coincidence between news stories. The first is that McDermott International is mothballing its Morgan City manufacturing facility and heading for the green with profitable waters of Mexico. The second heralds t….Continue
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
