Who is the governor? ??

I have posted the contents of an email from David Vitter.   What is he saying about Jindal? Is Jindal not the governor of Louisiana?  What is Jindal not doing? I know he is at CPAC but is he governing or is Vitter?   Is there a plan to send Jindal to DC?

The email

Dear Friend,

You probably remember the massive fraud and abuse of welfare cards in north Louisiana last fall. If not, there was a computer glitch that essentially left welfare cards through the Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) program with no limit for a period of time.

We later learned that some of the beneficiaries took advantage of that glitch and knowingly checked out grocery store items far above their legal limit –some stole hundreds of dollars’ worth in groceries.

This is absolutely a case of theft and fraud –especially against taxpayers. Additionally, it hurts the honest beneficiaries of that program who really need the help.

I’ve been working to get Louisiana’s Attorney General Buddy Caldwell and Department of Children and Family Services Secretary Suzie Sonnier to take aggressive action in response to the fraud. Last week the state took some action, but only scratched the surface. Just six of the 12,000 SNAP recipients who made transactions during the system outage lost their benefits.

Like many of you, I still believe there should be serious consequences for all those who participated. I’m going to keep pushing to make sure that those who deliberately stole from the program are disqualified.

As always, I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on food stamp fraud and other issues important to you. Please contact me with your ideas at any of my state offices or in my Washington office. You can also reach me online at

Sincerely, David Vitter Signature

Why We Need More People of Color Writing Syfy

This weekend due to an enduring cough, I decided to binge watch Wayward Pines.  In truth, I actually need to binge on Game of Thrones but I shall save that binge($$$$$) for my birthday.  Let me not chase that rabbit for now.  Wayward Pines is one example of how having majority White writers of science fiction/fantasy continue to ignore the actual composition of Earth's population, the societal norms of those populations, and the ability of those populations to thrive outside of White intervention.

I am a lover of Fantasy and Science Fiction since childhood. What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
