Listen Up, Louisiana

Pardon me, but what the hell are those rabid right-wing Republicans who have run Louisiana for a generation doing by calling for government intervention after they have sold themselves to the oil industry? A foreign company, at that! And what the hell are those dingbat dimwit Democrats doing demanding Obama do something. Like what? Suspend the Constitution? Seize an oil company? Arrest and jail executives without a trial? Call Superman?

How about if Louisiana had bothered to build defenses against floods and get other industries besides petrochemicals to sustain itself instead of racing stupid-go-lucky toward the bottom of every ranking of poverty, employment, education and culture?

Remember what conservatives used to say to welfare recipients – if you don’t like the benefits, “vote with your feet” and move to another state. Hey, Louisiana, you got what you paid for. Now hoist your rucksacks and hit the road, shut up or start electing people who truly have your well being at heart.
