Sheriff Addresses Public

Dear Editor and citizens, Recently our office has come under fire by an investigative reporter from New Orleans and an author of fictitious stories.

A Political Prediction

Mary Landrieu has voted along with President Obama 90 percent of the time regardless of the opinion of her constituents here in Louisiana. The most infamous of her votes, being the deciding vote, that allowed “Obamacare” to become law.(The worst law that has ever been passed in the bad history of lawless people who represent […]

Dear Editor, It’s amazing how hypocritical some Bible-thumping, verse-quoting, church-going, so-called Christians are when it comes to our president. These people have one common Christian flaw.

Dear Editor, The SCOTUS deciding to hear the case regarding recess appointments is very welcome. But it is NOT nearly enough. There is a much bigger issue in play here, and one that demands resolution by the court. That issue is the Separation of Powers so (seemingly) clearly defined in our Constitution. Congress is constitutionally […]

The Word Transcendence and its Place in World Government One definition of the word transcendence is “The state of excelling, surpassing, or going beyond usual limits”. In human behavior we think of transcendence as progressing from the infant state where the infant thinks only of its individual needs, and demands immediate attention from parents for […]
