ok so...the LA State Legislature

Okay so...this is where I live...yes dear readers...this is Louisiana...

Unparalleled in the history of American political corruption is the backwards collection of scoundrels, scallywags, hooligans, rascals and charlatans collectively known as the Louisiana State Legislature. So seeing a rapper blasting profane lyrics in their chamber is—Very funny!

How exactly this happened is still sort of unclear, but the gist of it is that the state decided to honor "Hurricane Chris," a Shreveport, Louisiana native, for all of his recent success by giving him the floor of the state House of Representatives for a few minutes, rather than say, naming a meaningless street after him or giving him the key to his home city or something.


Heaven forbid they take time to fix the roads, improve education, or attract businesses...

At least you just lost 3 minutes. The NY Senate hasn't worked since June 8. We all need to vote these crazies OUT!

Most of those there probably had no idea what he was saying. A true WTF moment. He had a chance to address the House and he raps about Hallie Berry. What a tool!!

what a low class jerk. He wasted his opportunity to address serious issues by rapping about Hallie Berry. Self promotion is such a bad thing to do when you have people's attention.

Listen to my podcast when you have a chance, "Thom Takes On The World". Go to my website by clicking on my name. I'm found on iTunes.


What? Did I just do some self promotion? Huh? Ramble Redhead taught me well. LOL

Love you all!

Your Nashville Friend,

Thom
