The Louisiana We Hate: FAST BACKWARDS

Who's running this state anyway? The Devil, Lucifer or ..... .. . . .. ..
Well, here we go. Preparations are underway for the Spring 2013 Legislative Session. What's the topic? Taxes. Sounds familiar?

More than likely, what ever "He" wants will occur, unless some cataclysmic event occurs, the legislature revolts or some "manical break with reality" exposes him for who he really is.  But, the GOP will have lost its mind, if it thinks, that just because, the fate of things will change.  Just because you present a "pretty picture", don't mean folks won't see right through you.

And who will suffer, the most?

What happened to the LSU-Hospital System? What happened with the Voucher system? What about the retirement system?  Who's going to see after the GOOD teachers who became stressed out over evaluations, had heart attacks and are filing suit?
If a legislator, doesn't go along with the official hardline, out you go from committee appointments.  Anyone, in any capacity not towing the line are gone. 
I guess we just going to wait around until they come for your status, or job or career.  

Okay, the Palestinian's Hamas and Israel are going at it in Gaza and along its border. Syrian refugees are flooding into Turkey, Jordan and any where else they can get. Lybia, still is in captivity, but no one wants to say so. And the commander of forces in Afghanistan is on the ropes.

As all of us well know, a storm called Sandy blew through the Caribbean and gained strength and went up the East Coast to become Superstorm-Sandy. What calamitous cataclysm is store for us since we continue on this fast track backwards.

States file petition to secede from US

THOUSANDS of Americans in over 30 of the 50 contiguous states have signed petitions, seeking permission to secede from the United States.
The petitions, hosted on the White House's We the People website, read "We petition the Obama Administration to peacefully grant the State... to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government".
States represented up to 4:00 pm yesterday, included Arizona, Arkansas, Oklahoma, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Nevada, Missouri, Tennessee, Michigan, New York, Colorado, Oregon, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Indiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, Florida, Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Rhode Island, Utah, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Wyoming, and Delaware.
In the case of Oregon, the wording of its petition was "Allow Oregon to vote on and leave the Union peacefully and remain an ally to the Nation". Further, Alaska is requesting a "free and open election to decide whether or not it should secede", while Austin in Texas, is seeking to "withdraw from the State of Texas and remain part of the United States".
We the People, according to the website, gives all Americans a way to engage their government on the issues that matter to them. It allows users to browse open petitions and add their signature, or to start new petitions.
"If a petition meets the signature threshold, it will be reviewed by the administration and we will issue a response," the website said.
The goal is for each state to reach 25,000 signatures by December 11, 2012. So far Texas has 79,445; Georgia, for which two identical petitions are being signed, has 22,528 and 9,987; Louisiana has 29,782; Tennessee, 21, 174; Alabama, 21,972; and North Carolina has 20,739.
The bulk of the petitions were created on Sunday, November 11 and Monday November 12, respectively five and six days following the November 6 election which secured a second term for President Barack Obama.
Counter to the appeals for secession are two calls for those who signed such petitions to be stripped of their citizenship and deported or exiled. Together, they have over 8,000 signatures.
Some of the other petitions on the site are "to officially recognise American Sign Language as a community language and a language of instruction in schools" (5,588), "come clean about the radical Islamist terrorist attack and murder of four Americans in Benghazi" (11,564), repeal Obamacare (307) and "recount the election", which has 41,774 signatures.
