Diversity in Social Media conversations

Dec 10

I am all about diversity. Disagreement and Diversity vs. hate speech It’s important to recognize the difference between encouraging diversity in the public discourse while rejecting hate speech. I take great pride in the fact that my online friends are quite diverse, coming from multiple religious and ethnic backgrounds, many of which have little to nothing to do with New Orleans. There...

Millenials: Generation Cry-Baby

Millenials: Generation Cry-Baby

Dec 06

What is the deal with Millenials? Everytime I read an article about college students, “Millenials”, and recent graduates whom everything offends, I get happy. That’s because my boys, who are now 27 and 21, aren’t part of that culture. The oldest is a Naval officer (O-3). He works with people of differing opinions, beliefs, religions, and cultures daily. He’d have to...

Hope or Huggies? Why #prostitutes matter

Hope or Huggies? Why #prostitutes matter

Oct 28

It shouldn’t matter to the voters who a politician sleeps with. It’s a personal thing. If it doesn’t have an effect on how that politician executes the duties of their office, it’s none of my business. Until they break the law. This is why Senator Huggies’ regular use of prostitutes matters. The above graphic is a letter to the editor of the New Orleans...

Hope or Huggies? JBE gets national help for #LAgov

Hope or Huggies? JBE gets national help for #LAgov

Oct 26

The DGA is coming to Louisiana, and that’s very encouraging for John Bel Edwards’ campaign. As NOLA.com points out, they didn’t have a lot of faith in JBE actually winning: The move signals that the national Democrats think Edwards might have a shot at besting U.S. David Vitter in the election held on Nov. 21. Political experts have previously said the association would only...

Hope or Huggies? The #LAgov Runoff

Hope or Huggies? The #LAgov Runoff

Oct 25

DJ David and the Diapers, last night, as he accepts his participation trophy for his second-place finish in last night’s open primary. Three months ago, the conventional wisdom was that Senator Huggies would face rough challenges from two Republican foes, Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne and Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle. In the mix was also Democratic State Representative John Bel...

Jefferson Parish Elections

Jefferson Parish Elections

Oct 24

Here’s how I voted in the local elections here in #themetrys: Lieutenant Governor: I voted for some Democrat I’ve never heard of, because I can’t vote for Billy Nungesser (R-Canal Street), or John Young (R-Harassment). Young’s been accused of harboring a staffer who sexually harassed subordinates. He’s also accused of firing one of the women who complained about...

John Bel Edwards – Superior to All Republicans

John Bel Edwards – Superior to All Republicans

Oct 24

I voted for John Bel Edwards this morning. I know that Bob Mann admonished us against having a Edwards-Vitter runoff, but that’s before David Vitter (R-John) completely collapsed as a credible candidate. I still think this will be an Edwards-Vitter runoff, but now people are actually entertaining the notion that Edwards will win outright tonight. That would be the best outcome for...

@DavidVitter is a Coward

@DavidVitter is a Coward

Oct 22

Let’s put aside the #prostitutes for a moment. Let’s put aside his friendship with Jack Abramoff, and the corruption that grew out of that relationship. Put aside all you don’t like about David Vitter (R-Huggies). By refusing to show up and engage the other men who want to be Governor of Louisiana, Dave is a coward. He’s not even a petulant small child, demanding to get...
