Happy 4th :)

Sorry I’ve been out of pocket for a few days…life happens, I suppose.

The heat surrounded the legislative pay raise has, of course, died down since Governor Bobby Jindal vetoed the bill.  Since then, both recall petitions filed against PBJ have been withdrawn.  It appears that the effort to recall Speaker Tucker at www.recallpayraisetucker.com has also been withdrawn.  The www.recallmichot.com site has been turned into a watch-dog organization to keep a very close eye on Mike Michot.  Recall Them All still seems to be up and running, but with the individual recalls withdrawn, I don’t really see much coming out of that.

Congratulations to all the people of Louisiana, and thank you to those who made phone calls, sent angry letters, and made your voice heard to our elected officials.  Though this whole process was stressful and frustrating for most of us, I hope it has shown us all that we can make a difference in our state government…as corny as that sounds 😉

R&R’ing,

    The outrage that the people of Louisiana showed with the legislative pay raise was outstanding. I’m hoping that everyone who called, emailed or wrote a letter to their respective legislators feel empowered. It just goes to show that when we pull together, we can have a victory.

    Now I wish that these same people would hound their U.S. Legislators about everything from Open Borders and the War to their lobbyist paid junkets. It might be like a prarie fire and catch on. There may be hope for this nation after all.

    Seriously, if we could get 10,000 people from each state to spend 10 minutes hounding their legislators every month, theres no telling what we could accomplish.

    WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO AGAIN BY BOBOBY JINDAL ALL THE WAY DOWN THE LINE. WE WILL NOT HAVE FATTER PAYCHECKS JAN 1, 2009. IT WAS ALL LIES AND WE SHOULD START THE RECALL PROCESS AGAIN TO GET THESE MONKEYS IN BATON ROUGE TO DO OUR WILL AND WHAT WE WANT INSTEAD OF THEIR CROANIES AND THEMSELVES.
