The kitchen door is open. If you can be open and accountable enough to answer some questions, listen to some doubts, and take a little bit of heat without resorting to a tantrum then you’re welcome to come on in. If you’re selling something that isn’t what you say it is, try another sucker.

This law doesn’t protect any monument from being moved. It spreads the authority in confusing ways into a labyrinth of bureaucracy, enough to make it more difficult for citizens to determine which entity and what level of government is actually responsible.

“We should all keep studying history and working to best serve one another in the present where God has planted us. If we do that then the future will take care of itself. That is something that takes honest dialogue not the vogue in these socially and politically volatile times.” State Rep. Karl Oliver ignited […]

I see all these live video feeds of Lee Circle, and I’m skipping right over them. I can’t watch. I won’t watch the desecration of a historical monument that has helped give the City of New Orleans yet another layer of many that form an intricate narrative of diversity. I have loved New Orleans ever […]

The world is full of people who pine-on about charting futures, and the importance of moving on, not living in the past, super new government programs, and the like. But history is the only certainty from which we learn. The future is a much easier place to be for those who haven’t studied the lessons of the past, and therefore aren’t prepared to make an impact on the present.

It’s not much really. But, I’d like to think it is just a small kernel of evidence, that if you plug away at something long enough it can actually begin to change. There has been a lot of policy and politics discussed and debated on these web pages in that four years. Some have made an impact.

There’s something in that, no matter how small it may be, that gives me a glimmer of hope for those who continue to work on digging out from under the mountains of regulation, restriction and unintended consequences of government past.

Imagine, not only would the state be saving $14 million during each Session, but then we’d realize savings over and above the current expenditures of a full $28 million every other year by not having them report at all.

Let’s find someone to throw in legislation to get rid of the special legislative retirement plan (SLRP) and Mississippi will be well on the way to reducing one of the biggest problem expenses in state government.

Wood agreed earlier in the month when asked by University Police to not file charges on the condition that Scott agreed to sit down and discuss the incident with him. But Scott has refused to reach out to Wood.

“She had every chance in the world to contact me,” Wood said.

An Ole Miss student remains enrolled after complaints were registered with Chancellor Vitter’s office and the Center for Inclusion and Diversity regarding a Twitter comment she made threatening violence against white people in response Donald Trump’s election as president.

At the same time Ms. Scott was issuing threats against “any white person” on Twitter she was helping maintain a level of public pressure against the Ole Miss administration that eventually led to the withdrawal of student Jordan Samson for racially insensitive comments he made on Facebook.
