    I wonder if the New Orleans City Council will review the mayor and MOPD Chief’s policy that made Bew Orleans a sanctuary city and that NOPD cannot check a person’s immigration stayus except in very, very,VERY strict and limited conditions. Ditto for working with Immigration.
    In light of the illegal Honduran immigrant who killed two and injured over 40 others when he caused an accident on the interstate, the few conservstive (i.e. not Rats) Councilpersons are starting to squeak. As the Rat political infrastructure, surprisingly even the black Rat Pols, are backing the sanctuary movement in their planning on crushing los gringo honky politicsl strength. Can’t wait to see what’s going to happen down the road when la serpiente politica they invite in gets uppity enough to bite ’em in the ass.

        Actually that’s the people’s job. They should realize that some pissant mayor is blatantly violating a Federal law and exposing them to dangers. If the people don’t exercise their control over their servants the servant just go wild. I tried to interest an attorney in poking the Feds to look at a grand jury to see if the mayor voluntarily violated Federal laws but no one wanted to touch that 3rd rail.

          If the city is majority lib, it’s impossible — San Francisco comes to mind. Cut off their federal funding and they’ll come to heel.

            In this city’s case it’s motto ‘the city that care forgot’ tells it. Corruption by oligarch pols is as ingrained as mildew, it’s become a norm. For most folks as long as they get three hots and a cot, along with lots of booze-filled fests/parties it’s all OK.

      Reminded me, finally, of a Vietnamese resturant in NOLA we ate at for about 30 years. When we first found it the store was basically for the Vietnamese community. The menu was written in Vietnamese on slates around the walls and precious few waitstaff spoke English. The menu had such footnotes as ‘extra fat, extra gristle 50-cents extra’. The place had the best plastic chopsticks, they were magic but somewhere around the early 90s the health department made them go to the wooden disposable as they couldn’t guarantee their sanitation even in a commercial washing machine. I tend to believe that someone in the Parish health department had a family member who had an oriental food supply business.
      We went as far as whittling on the disposable ones but nothing made it the way those old ones did, we ended up buying about three different styles each from a Korean supply store online and carrying them with us. Talk about pretentious, but we never had a problem with the icky disposable wooden ones again.
      Over the years the clientele changed after the old Vietnamese community aged. The resturant no longer opened early on Sunday as the older Vietnamese who’d meet there for lunch after church started to die off. By the time they closed (their location was bought up for a yuppie mart) and moved downtown by the new hospital complex it had become a part of the local surburban eaterie, it had even been featured on the Food Network. Now we have portion control, no more ‘extra fat, extra gristle’, and the son of the original owner’s running it. Times change, things move on…but they still have those crappy chopsticks.

        That’s right. I was at the dentist 2 days ago. He’s in his 60’s. He came in and said “have you got any plans for Labor Day?” I guess I must have been just looking at him, while my mind was processing…”Labor Day? Oh, right, it must be soon.” Finally I said “Umm, not really” and he replied “somehow I thought you would answer that way.” It wasn’t until the next day that I realized Labor Day was this coming Monday. How things change! I remember when every Labor Day was a treat to be anticipated.

            I was taught to bake by an old farm lady. She was a wonderful teacher, and her kindness and wisdom have been lasting gifts in my life. And, yes, she passed on her love of cooking to me as well. So here’s to farm women, young and old!

              My mother’s mother was a Tennessee hillbilly farm woman and man, could she bake! Always made biscuits and pie crusts with lard, never butter. Kept a five gallon bucket of it in the cupboard. She passed a few years ago, at 95. I miss her a lot.

      Bill was then, as he remains today, a lying sack of you-know-what. He helped work a section into the 1995 Commerce, Justice, State Appropriations Act that gave nearly 600,000 illegals amnesty, the NACARA Act that gave 1-million illegals amnesty,

        …Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act that gave nearly 200,000 illegal Haitians amnesty, and in 2000 in two seperate actions another almost 500,000 illegals got a free pass. Let’s also not forget the complicity of thecRepublicans in Congress in granting an unending free lunch tonthese cultural termites.

      Okay, this is interesting. The new quarterback got hurt early in the game, so they put in the backup. They don’t have a backup on the field for the backup QB. They had to go into the stands and get the plebe QB backup and have him suit up. Really weird…….even weirder, they just interviewed Coach Niumatalolo and asked him about it, and he didn’t know anything about it. LOL

              He did. They must have seen something in him to have pulled him out of the stands like that. There were others who were listed as QB’s on the roster. I think it is pretty amazing that he wasn’t even expecting to play and went out of the field like that and seemed to be so composed.
