Jindal Displays His Deep Understanding of the U.S. Constitution

The Supreme Court is completely out of control, making laws on their own, and has become a public opinion poll instead of a judicial body. If we want to save some money lets just get rid of the court.

The Price of Ducks


Amount in tax breaks allowed for every episode of “Duck Dynasty” taped in Louisiana, even as Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) tries to close a $1.6 billion budget hole, the Baton Rouge Advocate reports. “The A&E television reality show takes part in the nation’s most generous entertainment-tax credit program. Jindal is proposing no changes, arguing that reducing such breaks is tantamount to raising taxes.”


Carville Mocks Notion of ‘Tax Virginity’

The Governor and Legislature constantly refer to how can they maintain their purity, or as it is sometimes referred to, their ‘tax virginity.’ You have to be kidding me. This reminds me of two over-sexed teenagers dry humping in a backseat of car parked behind a levee wondering how far they can go while maintaining their purity or virginity. We are literally at the mercy of buffoons and comedians.

Jindal Against GOP Limiting Debates

I know there is a lot of concern, especially in this town among Republican party leaders. There’s this ideal of theirs, this idealistic belief, that if we could just have fewer debates, if we could have a gentler kinder nominating process that would be good for the party and good for the nominee. Well you know what? Democracy is messy.

— Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (D), dismissing “the Republican National Committee’s efforts to reduce the number of debates in the Republican presidential primary, and to shorten the primary process, calling the RNC’s changes futile,” Yahoo News reports.
