Putting Louisiana in Charge of Louisiana Healthcare

By Attorney General Jeff Landry 

Recently, I participated in a national TV interview on CNN regarding an important lawsuit. I joined this lawsuit with 17 other Attorneys General and two Governors on the legality of the Affordable Care Act. It is an important topic.

Unfortunately while our lawsuit is focused solely on the rule of law, the television producers used my time on air in a farcical attempt just to attack the strategy and get a sound-bite. Though I anticipated some sky-is-falling hysteria that has become a staple of extremists when discussing the ACA, I felt strongly someone needed to get the truth to CNN’s flailing audience.

Did You Know

By: Raymond Powell

Last week the graduating classes of Mansfield High School during the late 1950’s and early 1960’s (’54 to ’64) held a reunion at the Calhoun Center and invited my wife and me to attend as we are some of the few remaining faculty members. It was very interesting to visit with the former students. It was particularly interesting to hear them talk and remember the old W.P.A. swimming pool, brick gym and the football field that came right up to the ravine in Mansfield during that era.

Are You Worthy Of My Time

By Dr. Raymond Jr.

There is a chance that I am going to like me more than you like me. There is a greater possibility I am going to respect me more than you respect me. It is likely I will love me more than you love me. So, imagine what will happen if you and I can do this together, towards each other. Now think about us doing this with everybody.

Did You Know

By: Raymond Powell

Let’s take a trip through Mansfield and DeSoto in the summer of 1860 looking through the eyes of a New Orleans newspaper reporter. The reporter had been sent to Natchitoches, Mansfield and Shreveport by buggy and horse to report on the conditions in Northwest Louisiana.

Traveling from Natchitoches, La. on the Ridge Road, (same road that the Union Soldiers took 4 years later) known today as La. Hwy. 175, he encountered few homes. Most of the plantation owners of the river land lived in Mansfield due to mosquitoes and muddy roads. The river land was selling for $20 an acre and hill land for $10 an acre.

Misconceptions, Myths, and Lousy Advice

Ever see some nitwit with a business that's thriving. You keep wondering how in the "Tom Sawyer" is this degenerate doing it. Everything you try fails, and this knucklehead is making money hand-over-fist. It’s simple, be a knucklehead and stop worrying so much about what can and can't go wrong. Most of the stuff associated with why businesses fail is not that complex. I can solve almost every problem associated with marriage within three points. If you are having trouble in your marriage it’s related to sex, communication, or money...see that's not that difficult. Every woman wants to feel special, and every man wants to watch the game in peace while eating a nice thick sandwich.

Trust yourself to fix it.

So this week, please allow me to provide some needed information to business owners about their shops.

The Turkish Hostage Crisis

By Rich Lowry

It's never a good idea to negotiate with a hostage - taker, but when it's a NATO ally, there isn't much choice.

The Trump administration has been trying to get back a Christian pastor detained in Turkey since October 2016, and when a possible deal at the sidelines of the NATO summit fell through, decided to drop the hammer.
