Today 2/11- On My birthday. (the day in 1991- when Nelson Mandela was released from Prison-) ;. I thought of the State of Louisiana
25 days before the Louisiana Presidential Primary – ;
while reading autobiography of Ben Franklin-
as well as EJ Dionne\\\\’s new book \\\\’Why the Right went wrong\\\\’ ;
– Ive started writing this proposal regarding the budget \\\\’crisis\\\\’ – co opted by conservatives who -. After seeing the Front Page on my birthday; NO Advocate-\\\\’Ugly budget outlook grows Grimmer\\..\\’.
and all this gloom and doom on cuts in everything from higher education to.?
Public employees raises?
The working families of Louisiana:
Sewage Water Board
Mental health Care
Givem H E L L. John Bel!!
It\\\’s Time to Put Sensible Tax on Gasoline
Tax the Oil companies – NOT a tax on People!-
– $1.45 a GALLON!!!! Carrolton -acorss from the post office -. Hey Postal employees- they are doing WELL -thanks to a Democratic congress-and a business approach to self funding- now if they can get that huge $5 billion weight off their head -to fund the pension first! But have you noticed-they bypassed the GOP cuts on Saturday- and are delivering even on Sunday!! – right on-!
(Many postal employees are veterens- Marshall Hevron and Postal Union employees can speak to that!)
Let\\’s not lose this momentum!! The election was about hard choices to NOT Gut our public institutions without all measures exhausted
Living wages win!
Public employees matter
Police Fire – SWB. Public defenders Yes! Even public defenders! -
raise for public employees-
Talk to – probation officers- (add 300+) sheriff\\\\’s deputies (add 600+) state troopers (we need to add 1000+ train them on statewide community policing ) –
John Bel can brilliantly say- \\\\’I\\\\’m not endorsing ANY Democrat- Good Luck Hillary and Bernie- whoever gets the nomoination- you got my vote-. But now–
Help me with my budget!
Tax Oil companies
John Bell will become a national Hero!
You hear me Walt!
