    Damn, I want those minutes back!! That was some of the most ignorant crap I've ever seen. Disgraceful to allow that ignorance in a parliamentary chamber.

    In doing research to figure out what this bullshit was all about, I've discovered something. I still don't know why this kid was allowed to do this but I do know the same people who allowed it just voted themselves a 100% pay raise. A Metarie citizen initiated a recall petition against Jindal for not vetoing it. I've taken my kids to New Orleans and showed them where I grew up. They would ask me why I'd say I'd never live there again. If I needed a reason?

    This happened in 2008 when the state was flush with a surplus of hundreds of millions due to oil revenues. Although the legislature passed this obscene raise, the Governor in the end did veto it because there was an outcry from citizens. Jindal learned that he was voted into office for financial responsibility. He received tens if not hundreds of thousands letters and e-mails. So he changed his mind. He pissed many legislators off especially those from the Crescent City.
