Election 2015 | A Dirty Job but someone has to cover it

Just like having to flesh out the local porn scene, an extorting Tranny or lusty lawyers gone wild, covering elections in the name of public interest journalism can be a downright distasteful business. Continue reading “Election 2015 | A Dirty Job but someone has to cover it”

From the Slabbed Action Line: Thank you Senator Vitter

We’ve had a lot of fun with Louisiana’s Junior Senator through the almost 7 years this website has been online and we likely will again, but today I am pleased to report that our own Patricia is on her way to life saving surgery thanks to Senator David Vitter and his seasoned staff here in Louisiana. I understand the gang is not looking for any recognition because they were simply doing their jobs but in this case they definitely deserve a prop and I am happy to give it.

Get on the wire to every squadron around the world………

Attention politicians that did not read the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 before voting for it.

Federal flood insurance reform demands a renaissance of reason ~ Steve and Peggy Nicosia

Here is what you don’t hear in the mainstream media outlets like the New York Times:

(3) 40 percent of premium dollars going to the NFIP and private insurance companies for program administration, (4) adjusters who wrongly attribute wind damage to the flood program, and (5) 40 percent of federally backed mortgages required to carry insurance do not carry it — have led to premium increases of up to 3,000 percent and much more. Policies now costing $500 can increase to more than $20,000 when rates are fully phased in because structures are deemed out of compliance by Biggert-Waters.

True NFIP reform means clearing the rats off the money, not bankrupting your own people so insurance companies based in Illinois can make a fortune. And that’s the bottom line……..

Monday Music: Our Alma Mater is appropriate tonight.

I’ve got two or three dynamite things to post and I’ll try to get at least 2 in the hopper for tomorrow plus maybe a bit more to enjoy with coffee and doughnuts. 😉 Meantime I’m not exactly certain who Greg Aymond is but the good folks at We Saw That and especially Central LA Briar Patch are excoriating him and doing it well. :mrgreen:

Miss Piggy sends three more names to Obama for Federal Judge.

I have not heard anything about the latest batch of names sent by Mary Landrieu to Obama for the vacant article III judge slot in the Louisiana Middle District but when I see the name McGlinchey Stafford in someone’s pedigree I generally get the urge to shower.

Meantime a Landrieu nominee that I have heard lots about is Phelps Dunbar partner Susie Morgan and evidently word of her checkered past has made its way to the senate as her nomination will be receiving further scrutiny.

Having corrupt judges is a large part of the key to perpetuating the cycle of systemic corruption that has long had this area in a stranglehold. With Senators like Landrieu and Vitter making the recommendations I wouldn’t look for much to change.

Slabbed News Miscellany: Catching up edition

I’ve been sent several links by readers asking for a highlight and time has been scarce so here are some links with the ledes had I been charged with writing them:

Jackasses in DC continue to act like children playing blame game on credit downgrade.

Ed Blakely well knows his fungus as he continues to drink ‘shroom juice before going before the press. (Blowhards like Ed are one reason people don”t respect the Ivory Tower set.)

Kenneth Bowen, Robert Gisevius, Robert Faulcon and Anthony Villavaso can’t say we didn’t tell them they were so fucked for blowing away innocent people on the Danziger Bridge cause we did. In a pleasant surprise the Sun Herald ran the AP Wire story on this topic on their front page today.

Ol’ Steph is on a tear with a pair of great columns: Diaper Dave Vitter forever remains a hypocrite and Erroll Williams is a pleasant surprise as NOLA Tax Assessor.

Revenge of the Hooker!

and finally.

The Saints are going back to the Superbowl this year!

Wednesday Music Special: Dedicated to Diaper Dave and Representative Weiner

In Dave’s case the lyrics change from “dirty love” to “dirty diapers”. In the end it appears Rep. Weiner will prove to be the bigger man.

Magnum JD goes into syndication. Slabbed repeats “Magnum breaks out the curry for Jindy and others with Naan” but first a word from our sponsors….

Given the circumstances, this may just be the second dumbest campaign commercial Diaper David Vitter has ever run, especially since he tried to carry water for BP after the spill via limiting their liability for the damage they caused.

I’ve come to realize the danger of ideology when ordinary folks allow themselves to become unwitting dupes to those with higher personal aspiration that inhabit the political world, especially those that hold elected office.  As a young CPA I was privileged to be broke in by a guy who not only held the credential but was also a superlative businessman and of all the lessons he taught me, the why he was in business instead of politics was the one that stuck with me forever.

…..some people like money and some people like power. I like money because money rents power…… Continue reading “Magnum JD goes into syndication. Slabbed repeats “Magnum breaks out the curry for Jindy and others with Naan” but first a word from our sponsors….”

I’m normally not one to look forward to the “silly season”…

But with the Republicans standing by their man, hypocrite and whore hopper “Daiper” David Vitter, this election ought to be good.
