20191114: MAGA/KAG Rally Thread ~ Shreveport, LA

We’ve developed quite a taste for the bodacious seafood in Louisiana and need to go back at least once a week with the President. While we’re there, we can have a MAGA RALLY!

Nothing in the world better than a fresh “dressed” Shrimp Po-Boy

Today we’re going to Shreveport/Bossier City, Louisiana. They’re twin cities which straddle the Red River, kind of like Minneapolis/St. Paul do up north. The area is “up and coming” more influenced by Dallas than New Orleans, and sits in a tri-state area of Arkansas-Texas-Louisiana. Shreveport Bossier has cyber corridors, large facilities for AT&T, Chase, Capitol One, SWEPCO, GE, and used to be the headquarters for Standard Oil, until it was absorbed by Exxon. City itself has a population of about 200K with the metro at just under a half million. Younger population, more families, more restaurants, museums, art, theatre, with a lot of BBQ and Seafood.

Just outside the cities, is the location of Barksdale Air Force Base… which completely kicks a$$ and where President Bush flew into on 9/11 to organize our government while we were under attack. It was a tense day for all Americans, but for those on the ground in Shreveport, we were defending our very government amid the fog of war.

Great story about the base and the power of locals/state/Feds working together – The federal gov’t was looking for a major interior air base and NE Texas was chosen as the spot. Town forefathers in Shreveport wanted the base on the LA side, so they bought land from 800 private citizens, including a 20K acre cotton plantation with a 1.5 million dollar bond. Then, they gifted the land to the Feds. Barksdale AFB was born, continues to grow and dominate, and we are so proud.

I don’t know if you guys know this or not, but Louisiana has “Blue Laws” which stem from old Napoleonic Code, quite different from other states, which is why lawyers from out of state have a hard time licensing in LA. Additionally, Governor Huey Long was the next thing to a socialist in the 1930’s, enormously popular, and almost won nomination for Dem President. Therefore, many of the tax laws and procedural contracts in LA are contrary to effective business.

If Louisiana had a businessman as Governor, Eddie Rispone, a Republican, backed up by a President like Trump, the area of Shreveport/Bossier City would take off like a rocket. Which is why we’re here to RALLY for Rispone! The latest poll showed a 49.2% for John Bel Edwards and 48.6% for Rispone. With the race this tight, we need turnout. Therefore, we need President Trump to drive turnout!

The Dems are worried and pouring MILLIONS into Louisiana at the last minute.

Shreveport is the 113th largest city in the country. The land price, labor pool, access to inexpensive utility/energy, new shale and LNG discovery, lifestyle, local breweries, great food, a Sci-Port, universities, cyber corridor, mild weather, low home cost, gorgeous new boardwalk, film industry, and proximity to a major AFB puts Shreveport in a perfect position for MASSIVE economic expansion. Just takes the right leadership to light the fire and a few tweaks to the tax code.

So much potential……

  1. SOOO excited for another Louisiana Rally!!! Louisiana is in a mess with a Democrat governor preceded by an establishment Republican Jindall. Dismal schools, dismal infrastructure, dismal insurance situation, longterm tradition of graft and corruption….dirty politics going back to or maybe before Huey P. Long.

    I was born in Louisiana – and as an Army kid whose Dad was stationed at Camp Polk, I lived in Leesville, which is pretty close to Shreveport as a child.

    Leesville was a tiny hospitable Southern town near the base, and the locals put up with the army transients pretty well. Schools, scouts, churches and neighborhoods welcomed us nicely. Shreveport was the nearest destination for special purchases, fancy dress clothes, etc. My first (and only) fancy Madame Alexander doll came from Shreveport. There, after many memorable mishaps, I learned to ride a bicycle without training wheels….and alarmed my family when I decided not to ride the bus, but walk home and look for violets along the roadway one February after school. Hunting wild violets has been a lifelong pursuit everywhere I have lived.

    1. Po-Boys!!! Oh Man!!!

      My favorites are Oyster and Roast Beef. My folks used to drive to a place outside Thibodaux, LA for their Po Boys.

      A roast beef po-boy piled high with garlicky beef and sautéed onions….oh so heavenly.

      Oyster Po-Boys are in a league of their own. Fried oysters, special sauce, it’s like a masterwork.

      One must have beer to go with a Po-Boy to get all the aromas balanced and mutually enhanced..

      1. The food is truly magical.
        Dad bought a motorcycle when I was in high school. Grandparents were worried because he was the straight laced conservative guy. Ended up being Pres of his bike club and traveling widely.
        When I would come home from a date, he was always waiting up for me.
        When the weather was good, we would ride down to the Reisling factory downtown, when they took the fresh French Bread out of the oven……
        Loaded with fresh churned butter and it was heaven.
        Couple of cups of strong chicory coffee and we were set.
        But that wasn’t the best part.
        Late at night…..
        quiet streets
        all the stillness of the city
        riding on the back of a bike with Dad…..
        Dear God, it was perfect.

            2. When I was 16-17 my rathe used to pick me up from a date or if I was at a party.
              I remember him picking me up at midnight from a birthday party with his BMW motorcycle . I had a tight skirt on unable to get on the bike. My dad lifted me up unto the bike and my skirt rode up. Thank God it was late and dark and we were riding home through small towns. At home he lifted me off the bike.
              I am with you Daughn it is special riding with dad and the trust that they knew how to control the bike.
              My dad was about 6/5 and the BMW was a big heavy machine.

      2. In honor of my Louisiana genes/heritage – I’m making Pain Perdu for breakfast – cinnamon raisin whole wheat bread slices laid flat in a jellyroll pan – poured over with eggs, sugar, salt, lots more cinnamon!

        Bake the slices in the oven until the eggs are done, cut the slices apart. Alternately, cook in a skillet or pancake pan in butter. If no one is here but me, I freeze most of it in sandwich bags to reheat for a quick breakfast.

        1. Can also slice the french toast into french toast sticks after baking.

          NEVER put syrup on cinnamon french toast! Butter or another sprinkle of cinnamon sugar is OK, but not needed.

          NEVER EVER put yankee maple syrup on a Southern Dish!!!

          Cane syrup only – maybe cane molasses – Only buy the kind that is made from home grown sugar cane, boiled in a huge iron kettle on a farm with the Farmer’s Name printed on the label.

        2. For a company casserole, make layers or sandwiches with white bread and cheese, plus any combination of diced ham, bacon, chopped green onion, chopped fresh spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, etc. Place in greased deeper pan or glass casserole, pour beaten eggs and milk over the top and sprinkle with grated cheese and bake until eggs are set and casserole is lightly browned.

          Or you can make it with layers of raisin bread, thinly sliced apples, extra raisins (marscapone or fresh mozzarella, cream cheese optional) pour eggs beaten with milk, salt, sugar and cinnamon. Raisin pecan bread if you can find it at a fancy bakery is fabulous for this.

          1. GeorgiaFlower, years back I saved a bottle of cane syrup from my mother’s estate sale. Label says “Winters, West Green, GA”. Perfect pancake syrup, dark but lighter in taste than molasses. Ahhh. I apportion it out to meself on special breakfast days. Mmm. No barcodes on the bottle, this syrup has lived at room temperature for, my goodness , 50 or 60 years.

            I don’t plan on leaving it to the grandkids, either.

            1. In S GA, cane syrup only has two syllables, one syllable per word. Cane has a long ay sound and syrup is pronounced surrp.

              There were once a lot of cane syrup makers. It was a fall thing like harvest, canning vegetables and hog killing.

    Not in the context of how many show up or the much-needed boost to propel the Good Guy, Eddie Rispone, over the finish line, but more to hear what new nuclear nuggets our VSGPDJT drops tonight.

    He will DEEP FRY Adam Shiffe and stuff him in a Po’ Boy smothered with Awesome Sauce 😂

  10. Eunuch Lindsey!!!!

    “Hours after meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Wednesday blocked a resolution that would have condemned the Armenian genocide of 1915.

    Graham stated he blocked the resolution because he did not want the Senate to “sugarcoat history or try to rewrite it.” Whatever its other merits or drawbacks might be, condemning the Armenian genocide would seem to be the opposite of sugarcoating history. Graham’s office did not respond to a request from Fox News for elaboration of the senator’s thinking.”
