Inquiring minds want to know if Maxwell is taking his wife or young female relatives to meet with Trump up in Jackson or if they need any furniture?
“I moved on her, actually. You know, she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it……I did try and fuck her. She was married………and I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” I took her out furniture — I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look…….Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything……Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”
File this one under birds of a feather…….
Eric Hoffer once wrote, “Up to now, America has not been a good milieu for the rise of a mass movement. What starts out here as a mass movement ends up as a racket, a cult, or a corporation.” This comment is frequently misquoted, but the idea is always basically the same.
The Republican Party in Louisiana is an example of this phenomenon. When I registered to vote 45 years ago, I insisted to register as a Republican despite my inability to vote in the Democratic primaries, which were where all the elections actually occurred. I was determined to protest the incompetence and the graft that was everywhere. We few, we happy few, grew in numbers over the years as Louisiana fell further behind other states and the obvious contrast with the competent (Texas, North Carolina, etc.) became more and more blatant.
We even eventually elected Republican governors! Alas, the results were not good. Treen and Roemer were politically incompetent and nothing really changed. But we kept hoping that the right man would actually change things. Then we moved to Foster and the reality was in your face: The Republican party was now officially a racket. The coup de grâce (or cup of grass) was for John Alario to convert to the Republican party. O tempora o mores!

Today’s editorial on the Mississippi version of a policyholder bill of rights comes from out of the blue and is aimed straight at our new Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney and Lt Governor Phil Bryant.
Our readers wonder why I blame the GOP for the mess on the coast. Besides the obvious, Lt Governor Bryant and his insurance committee chairman Buck Clark killed all such common sense measures last session. IMHO they too deserve credit along with the Commish for the loss of 147 jobs at Future Pipe. The Sun Herald knows the score this time simply editorializing the fact consumer friendly bills all die in the state senate sparing Bryant for now.
IMO the piece is a good hint the honeymoon between Mike Chaney and the Sun Herald is done. Has he done enough so far or should we expect more? Consumers deserve far better.
When Long Beach homeowner Kevin Buckel was denied coverage for Katrina damage to his property, he set out to convince the Legislature to pass a Policyholder Bill of Rights. Continue reading “Sun Herald to the Commish: Honeymoon is Over, Now Get to Work”
