Jindal and Louisiana send message to Washington!

“We don’t want a BP check.  We don’t want an unemployment check.  We want to go back to work.” —- Bobby Jindal

Lift the Moratorium Rally

LAFAYETTE — Thousands attended a rally Wednesday in Lafayette aimed at persuading President Barack Obama’s administration to lift the federal offshore drilling moratorium, which officials said could further endanger the state through the loss of tens of thousands of jobs.

About 11,000 people attended the “Rally for Economic Survival” at the Cajundome and thousands more watched online.

…..

Gov. Bobby Jindal was one of 12 speakers at the roughly two-hour event and pleaded with Obama to allow people to go to work.

The rally was in opposition to the Obama administration’s ongoing efforts to temporarily block deep-water drilling following the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion.

“We don’t want a BP check. We don’t want an unemployment check. We want to go back to work,” the governor said.

You don’t ban cars when there’s a car accident.  You don’t take the planes out of the sky when there’s an air disaster.  You don’t stop mining for coal when there’s a mining catastrophe.  Is there any common sense in Washington, D. C.?

Nungesser fed up with federal run-around (video)

This is a must see:

Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser sounds off to Anderson Cooper last night, voicing his frustration in dealing with the government and he wants Obama to step back and take a look at what is happening here and overseas.

The Department of Interior has shut down their berm construction due environmental concerns.  Can you believe it?  Environmental concerns.  A little common sense would do them all a world of good.  He named the woman responsible for it – Jane somebody, couldn’t catch the last name.

Nungesser also relates to the situation in Afghanaatan and the frustrations there that have come out with the McChrystal firing.

He is trying to keep his composure but you can tell he is just about to blow his top.
