Lad I don’t know where ye been but I see ye won first prize….

Folks you can tell a fair amount about who reads Slabbed using a few tools that are available to blog moderators but that still does not give a complete picture of the readership.  That said it is no secret Slabbed is popular in legal circles in this corner of the country but occasionally I get some second hand feedback and such was the case today when a lawyer, without knowing the connection, highly recommended Slabbed as a reading resource to their client that also happens to be a friend of mine.

This is not saying there are not those that would rather strangle me than heap praise on this little project. For instance I heard belatedly that Magnum wanted to wring my neck after I posted his shithouse contract with BP and I hear the girls are highly upset that I got to the bottom of their business relationships with Aaron Broussard in Nova Scotia before clueing them in that their tactic of venue shopping defamation cases to judicial hellholes like the one in Nova Scotia was a waste of time and money since the US Congress passed SPEECH to provide protection against US Citizens being sued for defamation by nefarious characters in foreign courts.

In any event today’s news of a happy reader in the legal community reminded me of a song that played on the old Dr Demento radio show. Enjoy ~ sop Continue reading “Lad I don’t know where ye been but I see ye won first prize….”

Slabbed reveals the post that finally got me sued in Nova Scotia by Aaron Broussard’s grifting business associates at Trout Point Lodge. A Home Elevation Scandal Update.

O Fortune,
like the moon
you are changeable,
always waxing
or waning;
hateful life
first oppresses
and then soothes
as fancy takes it;
poverty
and power
it melts them like ice.

Fate – monstrous
and empty,
you whirling wheel,
stand malevolent,
well-being is vain
and always fades to nothing,
shadowed
and veiled
you plague me too;
now through trickery,
I bring my bare back
to your villainy.

MAJOR POLITICAL SHAKEUP ON THE LOUISIANA HORIZON?

In my home state of Louisiana, voters are about to witness a high stakes political game of musical chairs on both the state and national level. This could lead to new faces in the top three Louisiana political offices. We just could be talking about U.S. Senator Bobby Jindal, Governor David Vitter, as well as new Washington lobbyist, Mary Landrieu. The political posturing for these future offices is already underway.

Louisiana’s current governor, Bobby Jindal, continues to stay coy about his plans, and insists he will finish his current four year term. But once a politician experiences the national limelight, the lure of “moving on up” by seeking a U.S. Senate seat or a cabinet position is hard to pass up. Jindal will be half way through his second term as governor when the 2014 election for the Senate seat, presently held by Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu, comes up. And even though Jindal says he won’t run, many think he “protests a bit too much.” Just look at his recent campaign spending.

Jindal had a handful of no names running against him for governor, who spent virtually nothing in their campaign efforts. The Governor could well have received the same final vote total (64%), if he had not spent a penny. Yet he poured millions of dollars into his reelection effort. Jindal donated campaign funds in 193 separate legislative races, including 49 races where the candidate had no opposition. That’s $2,500 per candidate who was unopposed. Numerous robo calls, and door to door solicitations by Jindal campaign staffers were the norm throughout the state. Continue reading “Jim Brown”
