After last month’s shopping frenzy, Louisiana governor looks to strip food stamps from abusers

1 Comment

This is from Fox News.

The food thieves for the most part were the

sons and daughter of Obama.

How long before the race hustler starts screaming

discrimination and racism?

 

 

The Louisiana governor‘s office said Wednesday night that it would strip food stamp benefits from anyone who took advantage of an EBT card malfunction that in some cases caused an all-out shopping frenzy in some stores across the state, The Advocate reported.

It is unclear how many recipients stand in line to lose benefits for a year, but more than 12,000 received an insufficient funds notice when the EBT card system was corrected on Oct.12, the report said.

“We must protect the program for those who receive and use their benefits appropriately according to the law. We are looking at each case individually, addressing those recipients who are suspected of misrepresenting their eligibility for benefits or defrauding the system,” Suzy Sonnier, the secretary of state at the Department of Children and Family Services, said in a statement.

The frenzy at some stores was likened to the busiest shopping day of the year. “It was worse than any Black Friday,” Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd told local station KSLA-TV.

Shelves were picked clean in a mob scene that left employees rattled. Walmart spokeswoman Kayla Whaling told the station the company made a conscious decision to keep ringing up goods rather than to cut people off.

But when order was restored and the cards began reading properly, it became clear that some customers were out to take advantage of the taxpayer-funded program. One woman had $700 worth of merchandise in her cart and an EBT card with a balance of just 49 cents.

Problems involving Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards, the government payments to the poor that are administered by states with the help of private companies, plagued at least 17 states Oct. 10 and 11, creating retail riots. At Louisiana stores in Springhill and Mansfield, cards registered no spending limits, prompting recipients to go on buying binges. Stores, not taxpayers are on the hook for the excess money spent at the locations. It is up to the stores and local prosecutors to determine if charges should be leveled against abusers.

The Advocate’s report says that violators will receive a letter about the disqualification along with how to appeal the matter. In the most severe cases, under Federal guidelines, individuals can lose the privilege permanently.

A worker at a soup kitchen in Alexandria said cutting off food stamps from a family would be detrimental. She said most recipients she sees receive a $25-a-month stipend. She was inside a store when the malfunction occurred, and recalled feeling empathy when she saw the individuals, who otherwise could not afford it, stacking up on food.

‘Duck Dynasty’ star: I was victim of ‘facial profiling’

This is from USA Today.

Where is Al and Jessie screaming discrimination?

Where is Obama saying the employee acted stupidly?

I know Jase Robertson is a white guy.

In an incident of what Duck Dynasty star Jase Robertson calls “facial profiling,” he was escorted out of a swanky NYC hotel after a staff member assumed he was an undesirable sort.

Robertson and the rest of his Louisiana family were in the Big Apple promoting the Season 4 premiere of their hit A&E reality show, which drew nearly 12 million viewers last night, a record-breaking ratings success.

But, even with all the cash from their family business and the ratings coup, the Robertsons may not yet be household names — or faces, which was more than evident during Robertson’s encounter with a confused hotel employee.

“I asked where the bathroom was and he said, ‘Right this way, sir.’ He was very nice,” Robertson shared on Live With Kelly & Michael. “He walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, ‘Good luck.'”

 

Bobby Jindal Bans Publishing Gun Permit Owners’ Information

1 Comment

This is from Town Hall.

Thank-You Governor Jindal for standing up for gun owners.

More Governors need to follow this example.

 

 

Well it’s a new success for gun owners in the state of Louisiana. On Wednesday Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a new law making it illegal for journalists or anyone else to publicly identify concealed gun permit holders or applicants. It’ll be a misdemeanor to release or publish names or addresses with a fine up to $10,000.

As many of you will remember, after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary last December some counties in New York were publishing that information for use by their citizens. But it turns out that maybe after all, people didn’t want their information spread all over the newspapers for everyone to see. Many gun owners in this area were outraged and the newspaper eventually took down the map of gun owners and those with permit requests.

Governor Jindal was very active on Wednesday, addressing several issues gun owners have been concerned with lately.

Louisiana exempted gun permit applications from public records laws in 2008. Under the new law, violators who “intentionally disseminate for publication” the names, addresses and similar private information of permit holders could face up to six months in jail and a $10,000 fine.

The law does not apply when that information has been released by the permit holder, is already in the public domain, or when the permit holder has committed a gun-related felony.

The measure was one of seven gun bills Republican Governor Bobby Jindal signed on Wednesday, including a bill creating a lifetime concealed handgun permit, legislation allowing gun dealers to register people to vote at their gun stores, and bills aimed at restricting access to guns by people with mental health issues.

Maine, Virginia, Arkansas and Mississippi have all followed New York in closing gun permit records, according to Stateline.

Now we are all well aware of the states that are friendly to not only gun owners, but also anyone who likes their privacy. Thanks to Governor Jindal Louisiana is now a state that protects the second amendment and the privacy of its gun owners.

 

Black Democratic Senator Switches to GOP

1 Comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

This is a message the Republicans should be shouting

from the roof tops.

We have to stop the liberal lies about Republicans and

how they are the party of the average American.

We need to get blacks off the DemocRat Plantation.

 

When I first saw the headlines on this, I had the same hopes that you probably did in thinking that it was a US senator that switched parties, but it’s not.  Elbert Guillory is a state senator from Opelousas, Louisiana.

Guillory was a Democratic lawyer who was first elected to the Louisiana State House of Representatives in 2007.  In 2009, he ran for the state senate and won.  On May 31, 2013, he boldly stood up and declared that he was switching his party affiliation to the Republican party because it was the political party of freedom and the Democratic Party was the party of the big government form of slavery.

He recorded a video speech that explained his reasons for switching.  As I listened and read through what he said, I was impressed with his reasoning.  I wish more Americans, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, etc. would comprehend what he said and follow his example.

The Democratic Party is the party of modern day slavery.  They want to own and control every aspect of our lives, just like the slave owners did prior to the Civil War.  Yet the majority of blacks remain loyal Democrats which makes no sense whatsoever.

Since I’m not sure I can add anything to the eloquence of Sen. Guilory, I’ll let you watch the video and you can follow along on the transcript below.  I do urge you to pass this on to everyone you know and encourage any of them that are black or Democrats to listen carefully.

“Hello, my name is Elbert Lee Guillory, and I’m the senator for the twenty-fourth district right here in beautiful Louisiana. Recently I made what many are referring to as a ‘bold decision’ to switch my party affiliation to the Republican Party. I wanted to take a moment to explain why I chose to become a Republican, and also to explain why I don’t think it was a bold decision at all. It is the right decision, not only for me but for all my brothers and sisters in the black community.

You see, in recent history the Democrat Party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people. Somehow it’s been forgotten that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.

Frederick Douglass called Republicans the ‘Party of freedom and progress,’ and the first Republican president was Abraham Lincoln, the author of the Emancipation Proclamation. It was the Republicans in Congress who authored the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments giving former slaves citizenship, voting rights, and due process of law.

The Democrats on the other hand were the Party of Jim Crow. It was Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners. It was the Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who championed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, but it was Democrats in the Senate who filibustered the bill.

You see, at the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing — control. And they disguise this control as charity. Programs such as welfare, food stamps, these programs aren’t designed to lift black Americans out of poverty, they were always intended as a mechanism for politicians to control the black community.

The idea that blacks, or anyone for that matter, need the government to get ahead in life is despicable. And even more important, this idea is a failure. Our communities are just as poor as they have always been. Our schools continue to fail children. Our prisons are filled with young black men who should be at home being fathers. Our self-initiative and our self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them.

Sometimes I wonder if the word freedom is tossed around so frequently in our society that it has become a cliché.

The idea of freedom is complex and it is all-encompassing. It’s the idea that the economy must remain free of government persuasion. It’s the idea that the press must operate without government intrusion. And it’s the idea that the emails and phone records of Americans should remain free from government search and seizure. It’s the idea that parents must be the decision makers in regards to their children’s education not some government bureaucrat.

But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness free from government dependence and free from government control. Because to be truly free is to be reliant on no one other than the Author of our destiny. These are the ideas at the core of the Republican Party, and it is why I am a Republican.

So my brothers and sisters of the American community, please join with me today in abandoning the government plantation and the Party of disappointment. So that we may all echo the words of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last.’”

SEN. LANDRIEU SAYS S. DAKOTA BORDERS CANADA WHILE CALLING BORDER FENCE ‘DUMB’

Leave a comment

This is from Breitbarts Big Government.

I think it would be safe to say Mary The Moron Landrieu

failed geography.

I guess South Dakota borders Canada like Indiana borders Texas.

Is Mary The Moron the best Louisiana has to offer? 

 

 

While attempting to attack an amendment to the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill that would require a fence be built along Mexico’s border with the U.S. before legalization, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) made a significant geographical gaffe.

Landrieu, who represents Louisiana in the U.S. Senate, was trying to undermine the amendment Sen. John Thune (R-SD) offered. In doing so, she tried to argue Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was more qualified to talk about border issues than Thune because McCain represents Arizona.

“A smart fence, which is what Senator McCain and I want to build–since he’s from Arizona, I think he knows more about this than the Senator from South Dakota who only has a border with Canada and that is quite different,” Landrieu said.

South Dakota does not share a border with Canada. It does, however, share borders with North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Minnesota, Nebraska and Iowa.

Landrieu went on to argue that the 700-mile border double-fence that Congress passed into law a few years ago is a “dumb fence.” She said she would be “voting against” Thune’s amendment requiring the implementation of current law because of she thinks the fence is “dumb.”

“So I would be voting against Senator Thune’s amendment because I’m not going to waste taxpayer money on a dumb fence, and that’s what his amendment would be,” Landrieu said. “We need to build a smart fence and a fence is not just a physical structure which could be built out of a variety of different materials with or without barbed wire on the top.”

Thune came back to the floor after Landrieu’s comments to note that the Louisiana Democrat actually voted for the “dumb fence” a few years ago. “I would say in response to my colleague from Louisiana that we all voted for this,” Thune said.

“I mean this is not–she described it as a dumb fence. I guess I didn’t realize it was a dumb fence. I thought it was a commitment we made to the American people to get serious about securing the border,” Thune explained. “There are other ways—I would certainly concede—other ways in which we can combine manpower, technology, infrastructure along the border to make it more secure.”

Afterward, Landrieu came back to the floor to respond to Thune: “You are correct, I voted for the dumb fence once, I’m not going to do it again because I learned my mistake.”

Let Them Eat Cake? Government Destroys 1,600 Pounds of Deer Meat for Homeless Just Because

Leave a comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

It is not only Louisiana‘s government it’s the Feds also.

Church’s here in my part of Indiana used to donate food to,

 from our different functions to the homeless shelters.

The one day the church’s were told  were told the had to stop.

Because the feds said the food donations had to stop.

Hunters and homeless people in Louisiana are righteously outraged after state health officials forced a homeless shelter to throw out nearly a ton of perfectly good venison.

The meat that had been donated to the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission could have fed more than 3,000 people. Instead, it was tossed in trash bins by officials from the Department of Health and Hospitals who say that state law prohibits the serving of venison in homeless shelters.

Not only did the officials toss the meat, they doused it with Clorox to make sure it couldn’t be eaten by animals or, presumably, people.

Deer meat is not permitted to be served in a shelter, restaurant or any other public eating establishment in Louisiana,” an official told Fox News in an email. “While we applaud the good intentions of the hunters who donated this meat, we must protect the people who eat at the Rescue Mission, and we cannot allow a potentially serious health threat to endanger the public.”

Richard Campbell, co-founder of Hunters for the Hungry, a charitable group that donates wild game to shelters, said hunters across the state and in Mississippi are outraged about the statement and the waste.

The state’s health Gestapo got involved after someone at the shelter complained about being fed deer meat, a staple in many countries across the globe and considered by most people to be a treat or a delicacy.

I don’t know what’s wrong with Louisiana, but in California, turning down venison would be like turning down a lobster tail with drawn butter — it’s something that sane people who aren’t vegetarians just wouldn’t do.

The director of the mission said they’ve been serving venison for years. The shelter, by the way, doesn’t take any government money. It’s completely self-sufficient thanks to its donors.

“This was really good meat,” said the Rev. Henry Martin. “It’s high in protein and low in cholesterol. It’s very healthy. … You would think we would have due process. But they meant to destroy the meat – that’s for sure.”

Louisiana hunters participating in the state’s deer management programs are allowed to keep as much meat as they can handle. Martin’s mission asks hunters to donate the rest. The donated meat is processed at a local meat plant.

State Rep. Jeff Thompson called the destruction of the meat “insulting,” and he’s right.

Only a truly callous bureaucracy could dare pretend to care about the homeless then turn around and destroy food intended for the needy, for no real reason other than “because” that’s what the rules say.

I’m sure you recognize the excuse — used to justify evil deeds, from the treatment of slaves to the rounding up of Native Americans to the Holocaust. You hear it from bureaucrats at all levels, from bus drivers to presidents. It’s an expression of contempt for the rights and needs of the common man.

In the case of the meat destruction, it’s also an illegal taking of property for which the mission needs to be compensated.

An apology is the least that the state should be doling out for this Kafkaesque assault on the homeless and on common sense.

Large fight shuts down Mall of Louisiana

Leave a comment

This is from WWWL TV4 New Orleans,La.

A mob of 200 Hopey Changers close the Mall of Louisiana.

Another by-product of LBJ‘s Great Society.

BATON ROUGE, LA – The Mall of Louisiana was closed during a busy shopping time and evacuated after a fight broke out between dozens of young people Saturday evening.

EBRSO spokesperson Casey Rayborn-Hicks told WAFB-TV she’s not sure how many people were involved in the actual fight but up to ten people will face criminal charges.

Deputies were called to the food court area around 6 p.m. and said the troublemakers quickly dispersed to other areas of the mall. No injuries were reported though several ambulances were dispatched to the area and initial reports of shots fired were apparently incorrect.

However, at least one eyewitness reported a chaotic and scary scene in the second floor food court.

The woman, who asked WAFB-TV not to identify her, said she was in the food court with her young child in his stroller when a large fight erupted and people began jumping over and knocking down tables. She said she grabbed her son and tried frantically to exit.

Unchaperoned young people were brought to a couple of stores where parents were allowed to pick them up.

Traffic was sent out of the area with all lanes headed out and the exits to the mall being closed.

Black Woman Self-Immolates but Blames It on White Racists

1 Comment

This is from Political Outcast.

How many so-called racist attacks are phony like this one?

I know there are racially motivated attacks.

I also know some are phony attacks.

How many attacks involving the homosexuality community are fake?

A twenty-year-old black woman named Sharmeka Moffitt in Louisiana claimed that three members of the Ku Klux Klan wrote “KKK” on her body and racial slurs on her car before dousing her with lighter fluid and lighting her on fire. So why is this not big news? Why is MSNBC not taking this and running with it? It would be the perfect anecdote to get Obama reelected. It certainly would have been huge news except that forensic specialists found that the woman set herself on fire. Her fingerprints were on the lighter fluid container and lighter that were recovered at the scene. There is no evidence of her being attacked by three men, much less KKK members. Investigators believe she used toothpaste to scrawl the letters on herself and on her car.

This woman wanted so desperately to be the victim of a hate crime that she was willing to nearly kill herself. Moffitt is now in critical condition in a Shreveport hospital having suffered extensive and self-inflicted burns. Police have to wait until she recovers in order to question her as to why she would invent such a story. It really isn’t that complicated to figure out why a radical liberal would seek so much attention. (I admit I’m going out on a limb by assuming this woman is a liberal. Is that racist?)

This happened fairly recently to a Nebraska lesbian. After the police were notified, she claimed that three masked men broke into her house, tied her down and cut “homophobic” slurs into her body. She also claimed that these men wrote slurs on her walls and almost set her and her house on fire. As it turned out, it was all staged. She had done everything to herself in order to win everybody’s sympathy. There were candlelight vigils done in her honor, nearly $1,000 of donations raised, and she received encouragement and support from her LGBT friends. It was all based on something that never happened. She ended up being arrested for lying to the police.

Both of these cases were definitely “hate crimes.” Moffitt must have hated whites so much that she blamed her self-inflicted injuries on them in hopes that the media would pick up on it and convince all their viewers to hate whites even more. Likewise, Rogers must have hated non-homosexuals so much that she was willing to go to such great lengths and much pain just to be seen as a victim. Would anyone be surprised to find out that Moffitt and Rogers were both Obama supporters?

Those on the left have to resort to pathological lying and elaborate role-playing in order to justify their worldview to themselves and others. If they aren’t in enough pain in the real world to elicit sympathy from their society, they have to fabricate their victimization.

Sometimes it backfires when people find out the whole story.

‘Mark of the Beast’ in School Lunch Scanners?

1 Comment

 

This is from Godfather Politics.

Myself or any of my family will accept this mark in our hand or forehead.

I will have plenty to answer to to my maker for my life.

I will not be rejected for accepting the Mark Of The Beast.

Here is biblical reference about the mark and not taking the same.

 

Revelation 13:16-18

New King James Version (NKJV)

16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[a] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

Biometrics, the science of using machines to identify people by the features of their own bodies, is intruding further into families’ lives.

Some parents in Lake Charles, Louisiana, have been upset by a letter sent home with Moss Bluff Elementary School children about plans for a new school lunch program that will require children to have their hands scanned in the lunch line.

The scanners would identify the child and the lunch payment plan. School officials say it would speed up the lunch line and increase efficiency.

“With an elementary school, they all come through line, and most of them eat here. It would make us more efficient and more accurate,” Principal Charles Caldarera told KPLC TV. “We’ve had parents complain in the past, because they felt like their children weren’t eating, that we assigned them a charge for the day, and they might have been right.”

But some parents are angry about the new program.

Parent Mamie Sonnier told the TV station: “As a Christian, I’ve read the Bible, you know go to church and stuff. I know where it’s going to end up coming to, the mark of the beast. I’m not going to let my kids have that.”

Caldarera said a number of parents have expressed similar complaints to him, but he says the scanners are just everyday technology.

The principal has a point that this sort of technology has become commonplace, but does that mean people should put up with it?

Other schools across the nation are considering similar scanners. Some already use thumb print identification.

In the adult world, many states require a thumb print to obtain a driver’s license. Some banks will scan your prints just to cash a check. Law enforcement for a century or so has kept records of the fingerprints of anyone who gets arrested.

Nowadays, law enforcement will also take DNA samples if you enter the system. The military branches keep similar records.

Facial recognition software is gaining in use. Not only can it be used to identify criminals, but there are companies that sell it as a security device to protect access to computers and other systems.

Retinal scanning systems are being developed to help deliver advertising via audio, video and shopping center signage, a la the Tom Cruise movie “Minority Report.”

As part of Obamacare, the federal government is expected to create a database containing the medical records of every American. At the very least, this will likely result in some sort of national ID card, but there are persistent rumors that the preferred method will be to implant a chip in patients.

Some of the rumors of a 2013 deadline for “chipping” America are based on a strained reading of parts of the Obamacare law. However, considering the current Administration, it’s not hard to foresee our government doing exactly that for “convenience” and “security.”

There are people who say that the Mark of the Beast will be given in a very public fashion, with people lining up willingly to receive it. Others have suggested that it’s being implemented bit by bit through use of biometric systems.

I don’t really consider myself qualified to interpret Revelation, but I notice most of the people pushing for these biometric systems seem to be ardent secularists, with all that implies. They certainly don’t care about my or your privacy or dignity.

Our current government makes me want to quote Charlton Heston: “Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty apes!”
