And Obama’s taking selfies with Biden…………….
Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to “register” with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia, according to Israeli media.
To all the ULTIMATE WARRIOR fans: THANK YOU!! He told me when he shook the ropes it was him gathering strength from each of you. Warrior respected you and loved you as do the girls and I. I will reach out to the ropes for your strength to sustain me in the sad days that the girls and I face. UNWAVERING is what you’ve been. GRATEFUL is what we are.
Our useless Louisiana Senator showing what she does best, act in front of a camera.
Facing a tough reelection bid, Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu released a new ad today showcasing her strong support for offshore drilling and Louisiana’s energy production.
But some things in the ad just did not seem quite right.
As the Weekly Standard pointed out, Landrieu reenacted a Senate hearing that actually happened for the commercial.
If one questions the lack of representation that we have here in Iberia Parish, I would offer the April 10th The Daily Iberian newspaper as proof. The story on Councilman David Ditch’s efforts to downsize the Parish Council failing and the accompanying information about more money being dumped into the pit called RVera dramatically shows how we as a Parish are lost.
The constant lack of progress within this council only highlights the need to downsize a council that is too large for a Parish of this size. The public is not served by a council of 14 people and for that same council to deny the public to air their opinions on this subject shows just how much it needs to be revamped. These “representatives” have obviously forgotten that they work for “we the people”.
In addition, the money being spent, in the proverbial “drunken sailor” manner, by this council on RVera is appalling. Government should not be in the private sector and should stop spending the hard earned taxpayer money on this venture. Every time I open my paper, several more thousands of dollars are sailing out of the general fund.
Citizens of Iberia Parish, remember how well your representatives are performing when it’s time for these people to stand for reelection. Perhaps we should do the right thing for us and our children and get rid of all of them.

This administration is full of hypocrites………………
But critics of the administration are eager to turn the tables and note that Mr. Obama’s White House fares only slightly better. A study released in January showed that female White House staff members make on average 88 cents for every dollar a male staff member earns.

“They ask her to count and write 20. So she counts…counts again and again. And says mom, ‘there’s only 19,’” Boyd wrote on the Parents and Educators Against Common Core Standards Facebook page.
“I’m just glad she was smart and said ‘they’ messed up. If they are going to enforce this then they better double and triple check their work books so they are accurate,” Boyd wrote.
But apparently they’re not – or even the publishers are having difficulty with kindergarten math.
The lesson is part of a “Go Math” Common Core-aligned curriculum published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
