The lost art of the l-2-3 holers

For more than 150 years, the red clay hills of North Central Louisiana have been known as the “Land of the Three P’s” – Politics, Pine Trees, and Pore Folks. So wrote Eck C. Bozeman back in the early 1970’s.

Bozeman was known as “Mr. Tourism” from Winnfield and wrote columns for several newspapers in the central Louisiana area, including this one.

History made in parish last week

History was made in LaSalle Parish last week during qualifying for the fall election. For the first time in 60 years, Dr. I. C. Turnley, Jr., did not qualify for the office of Coroner.

In the fall of 1959, Dr. Turnley had just opened his office in Jena and started his practice here. Hershel Floyd, who was running for sheriff to succeed his father, D. Floyd, approached Dr. Turnley about seeking the office.

I’m dreaming of a God-fearing America.

Michael Brown:

My purpose here is not to comment on the unspeakably tragic, mind-bogglingly ugly shootings in El Paso and Dayton. As a nation, we mourn and grieve.

And until we have more facts and information, I don’t believe it is wise to comment on the motivation of the shooters.

But I believe it is an opportune time to renounce white nationalism.

The gift that keeps on giving!

Terry Paulson:

President Trump recently told the Democratic politicians now labeled “the squad” to leave if they don’t like America. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) are members of a group called the “Justice Democrats” and more recently “The Squad.” President Trump should beg them to stay and to keep talking!

These women are the gift that keeps on giving, helping to define the Democratic Party as the extreme left it has become. By helping to give them the media coverage they demand, they limit coverage of the candidates vying to take on President Trump.

In honor of their contribution to reelecting Donald Trump for another four years, here are my top quotations that show just how radical Democrats have become:

A new revolution is unfolding in America

The country editor

I was looking back on some of my former columns and ran across one that was published on January 20, 2010 – nearly ten years ago. Barack Obama was president and Obamacare was in the process of making its way through Congress, which it did and was signed into law a few weeks after this column appeared.

Compare what I wrote back then to what is going on in Washington, D.C. today. Here’s the column:

“Republican Scott Brown won a historic election on Tuesday of last week in Massachusetts by defeating Democrat Martha Coakley to fill the Senate seat held by the late Ted Kennedy, a Democrat, for 47 years. Brown becomes the first Republican elected to the U.S. Congress in Massachusetts since 1972. More importantly, this election breaks the Democratic stranglehold on the 60-vote majority in the Senate.

Biggest problem facing the U.S.A.

The Country Editor

There are a lot of problems facing our country right now, but none as big as our federal spending and our national debt.

A writer for TownHall.com, Donald Lambro, has released a column on the national debt and what is being done about it. I think our readers will find it interesting. Lambro wrote:

“Americans suck, vote for us!”

Kurt Schlichter:

The Democrats’ 2020 theme is that you are terrible and the party’s slogan will be “Americans suck, vote for us.” The precise candidate who will employ it is not important because they all embrace the notion that punishing the essential moral failure of you and me and every other Normal American is the key goal of the Donkey Party.

Everything I don’t like is racist

Derek Hunter:

There is a new trend in politics that’s a hit with all the kids. It’s been around for a while, but was never really as popular as it is right now. So, in the interest of science, I’ve decided to hop on “The Squad” train and try thinking like a progressive member of Congress. How hard could it be?

I was driving to the grocery store the other day and the person in the left turn lane ahead of me did not turn when there was clearly enough room for him to go. I sat there, angry, and then I asked myself, “What would Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez do?” Then it all came together.
