Congratulations AG Foti?

Hmm, do we thank AG Foti for doing his job or wonder if there was another reason for his decision? I have thought for awhile on this perplexity. One wonders with the Landreau - Foti ties, that the "decision" of the AG was geared more by politics than law. Mitch's slate was cleaned in the New Orleans Mayor's race, the traditional Landreau political base. Mary, it seems will be in a real political battle for her office, hence her recent attempted retreat into conservatism. Charlie's (Foti) recent identification by James Carville as unable to spell "law" even if "he was given the L and the A". Could this all add up to an all out attack on Louisiana old line politicians? Perhaps Foti's decision was based more on a "heads down" mentality rather than law. I think I will name this the Shhh affect -- political camoflage. Why ring the doorbell and let people know your at the door when you can just walk in without drawing attention to yourself? My opinion: AG Foti's decision was based on not stirring up the population for the upcoming election cycle rather than upholding the law. The question at this point is his office. Will Louisianians consider him non commital or ineffectual? Either way he loses.

Now he's even screaming that the current attorney for the water board has somehow done something wrong by settling a lawsuit. Something lawyers do every day.


Not many settle a $100,000 claim for $7,000 though, unless they file the lawsuit too late.

Greg travels under so many different names on this blog site you would think he would be unrecognizable. However, his venom and hatred always give him away. A lawyer with his alledged credentials having to operate out of his brother's plumbing shop. Now that is real professional. He is constantly sucking up to those he thinks can do him good. He will not understand nobody will touch him.

He is insignificant and is merly a bump on a mules ass.

I especially like his bad ass statement about signing his e-mails. Sure, right

You are going to attach a negative characterization to Foti, regardless of what he does. Treating a democrat with fairness and objectivity never occurred to you. Foti did exactly what you wanted and you are still complaining and condemning him. If you are looking for an attorney general who is a political hack, a liar, and a totally ineffective administrator, you need look no further than your own beloved Alberto.

Greg Aymond said...

I agree that Foti failed to do his job. Defining the term "citizen" WAS a question of law, not of fact. The facts come in on Breaux's domicile or residence, but not his citizenship.
Foti is too much a political fence sitter, and too little of an Attorney General. I do not plan to vote for his reelection.

Interesting story... a fellow has his car stolen near Sam's. Calls the Alexandria police and gives report. Gets his wife's car and starts checking known drug dealing neighborhoods in town. At second location sees his car at end of street. Calls police. Before they get there the crooks start to drive off. He blocks street, they try to maneuver around him but jump out of car and run off. He's lucky they didn't shoot him but he gets his car back. Police finally arrive. Now, a couple of blocks over from this action on Elliott street two of Alexandria's finest are hiding in the bushes and popping out with a hand held radar gun giving tickets and acting like Nazi's to the people being pulled over. No wonder people are moving out of town and not moving back! The whole police force from the top down needs to be fired and start over.

By the same token I could say that you posted at 9:08 so you are either stealing time from your employer by posting during business hours, or, you don't have a job because you're a stupid loser and therefore your opinion doesn't mean squat.

There is a game the cretins play in the Middle East. Mounted horsemen carry a bloated goat carcass up and down a huge field trying to toss the carcass into a painted ring. The game is brutal. There are no rules. There is no limit to the number of horsemen and no teams. Every man for himself. The man with the carcass and the carcass itself are the target for all the other horseman. The goat carcass is replaced when it either rots away, or is torn to shreds by the horsemen.

Greg Aymond reminds me of the goat carcass.

- - is chris roy jr. running for state rep? - -

That is the rumor. The reality may be the same that Breaux faced. If he runs and does poorly, then he's branded a loser.

It also might send an early signal of his brothers demise, creating a feeding frenzy (especially with the utility bills anger). Big risk! Kinda like Pres. Bush 1 said yesterday about Jeb Bush and "Bush fatigue." Roy fatigue might set in before the next mayoral election.

I think his brother's supporters think they have some kinda voter base. They need to look at the reality of who they ran against for mayor, not by how much they won.

Also, Jindal will have BIG coat tails in Oct.

Whoa, Chris & Lamar.

Nobody mentioned Maxwell until you did. I was just referencing the data.

Major Republican district, which only has a part within the city. Bo Curtis' district is where most of the demo vote is. Jindal will run strong and could provide any repub with 4-5% points. There is already a dem. in the race, whose been working the district. And a lot of the country white folk don't care for Alex. politics (and they vote). Notice how both the sitting sen. and rep. come from Lecompte & Woodworth, not Alexandria?

Sorry that offended you, but your running against data, not just a person. That's what I meant about Breaux. He knew the data was against him, with the NO vote gone, he was in for a fight. So are you. But jump in there buddy. We'll all see.

And your brother appointing a black fire chief sure ain't gonna help you much either.

Remind me again-- Is Charlie Dewitt a Republican or Democrat? Did Jacques Roy carry the conservative parts of town or did Delores Brewer? Your analysis is flawed and racist. The seat is up for grabs, and as long as you and your conservative friends pander to your racist base, you're going to keep the seat wide open.

Anonymous said...

you don't know the reality of La politics.

racism is the reason Jindal is not the sitting gov. remember the district includes forest hill, hineston, oak hill, woodworth, glenmora, parts of vernon parish. not exactly the most "liberal" areas, if you will.

and as far as dewitt being a dem, why do you think they want someone else in the race, they know beard (dem) aint gonna get it done. they have some mistaken idea that the roy family is viewed as conservative (lol). we all know better.

but thats what elections are all about. a bunch of folks think they are more imporatnt than they really are. i mean c'mon jacques was the 4th choice as mayor candidate, and still whipped Brewer? that aint the case in this race.

Good 'ole Boy system=20th century said...

what kind of racket will there be if roy jr. gets elected? do you think edwwin will run from the state pen? just joking about the edwards thing but seriously, if you think that the roy boys are in it for he good of the state then think again. these people eat, sleep, and breath politics. this is their career, appointed by their ambitious father. they have been indoctrinated by the dem machine. public servants... i think not. career politicians.........ABSOLUTELY!

Anonymous said...

Bottom line....Roy Jr. is too late. Maxwell has locked up every police juror and school board member including two of the district's mayors. His campaign manager (Jimbo) is related to a third of the district and his treasurer is the freakin school board president. His chairman is a popular rural democrat and his treasurer is a popular urban republican. Now that is a team. Plus, what a risk....this could end up bringing both the Roy boys down. If I was the mayor I would be doing everything that I could to keep my brother out of that race.

Right! Instead, they're both successful, skilled lawyers, and one of them is the mayor of Alexandria who won the election by a landslide. Chris, Sr didn't force the people of Alexandria to vote for Jacques Roy, you idiot. They voted for him b/c he was the best candidate, and Chris'll make a good candidate as well.

What do you call all of these attacks on people and their families on here, love? Also, a lot of you apparently visit his blog to be knowing what he writes all of the time !!

And gossip is not hate speach? One of the ten commandments, the one about bearing false witness against thy neighbor directly impeaches gossip. Again, what is the difference?

Anonymous said...

Gossip is usually not "false witness". It usually some version of the truth Even if the stuff about Lance's work ethic, history, and "luv??" life are gossip, even if entirely true. Gossip does not necessarily contain an element of malice. Come on Spanky! You ain't stupid, even if you are PINK.

is this the beginnings of an eventual takeover by the edwards regime? surely y'all see the key players moving into position.

we finally have the chance to leave the good 'ole boy network in the 20th century and all you wanna talk about is who gossips more or less. that is retarded. WST will never change.

I wish Monica Walker could run for the DeWitt seat. It is my understanding that she is moving into the district. Who cares about her divorce? I think the only people who care are in Avoyelles. Monica is smart and has been a very good legislator. She's much better than the current field of candidates--a kid who's accomplished nothing on his own and an elderly former Chief of Police. Too bad she can't run for this seat. As for CR, Jr., is he in or out? Surely he would be a better choice than Maxwell or Beard.

by better do you mean better for them or better for the state? i personally do not trust the roy family to put the state before that of their family and extended family (the antoons).

these people are born and bred for a career in politics. why can't we elect a public servant?

Strange that you should say that. The Roy family has never been in politics (the daddy did some public service by helping draft the state's new constitution) but have always been quite successful in the private sector. Mr. Beard and the Maxwell boys have never backed away from the public trough.

You seem to be facinated by Lance's opposition, real and imagined, but unable to deal with the truth about the Maxwell kid. If one would assume that you are correct about Roy and Beard and other-as-yet-unannounced candidates, that still does not alter the painful truth about little Lance. You would hard pressed to find anyone objective that worked with or around him that would have anything kind to say. Perhaps you should deal with that unfortunate reality before taking on the rest of the world.

Anonymous said...

You don't know reality, so why should we trust it from you?

Claims that Maxwell lived with his parents, was a Southern grad and Roy wasn't, got a job with Vitter beacuse of his daddy, didn't have a wife or girlfriend, etc. all were complete lies.

Whether that came from you (or other Roy supporters), means you don't know the truth. It appears that you're a jealous, bitter person, and all you hope to do is bring someone down so that you feel better about yourself.

The only truth in that is when you bring that person down to your level, you're both in the gutter!! Makes me want to vote for Mr. Maxwell just to shut you up!!

Could it be that he just retired? Why is everything a "Roy clan" conspiracy?

Jodie is retiring in January. There is no conspiracy. His wife wants him to retire by her birthday, and he wants to spend more time with his grandkids. The man's been single-handedly been doing the work of at least three people.

I listened to Jacques Roy on KSYL this morning. What a contrast between his clear and precise answers and the ums and uhs and the generalities and feel good non answers from the Pineville Mayor. What a difference. At least when Roy answers you actually understand what he is saying.

I heard Roy this morning also and I heard him say something about a study on city car usage by employees after work. What is Pineville's policy on usage of city cars and gas for their employees? Do they even have one?

Anonymous said...

I do not think that you can even compare the two. Jacuques has a college degree plus post graduate work and a law degree. His Chief of staff has a Bachlors degree , a degree in education and a law degree. The Pineville administration has "maybe" two 12th grade educations between them. Just read the article in the paper this morning about Roys efforts to request specific funds from the legislature to do real planning and use roads to create economic development with and actual plan. Specific requests, specific plans , specific objectives .Whats the Mayor across the river ask for? HE wants some money so he can get his Fort off the ground!! Thats all!!. No roads, no infrastructure , no plan for economic developement. He wants a park!!! What a brain trust yall have over there! Why not ask for a few thousand dollars more Mayor maybe yall can get you a grass cutter for your wonderful overgrown eyesore of a bike track that was built with taxpayers money. So, its not fair to even compare our two Mayors.

No I am not trying the City of Pineville's lawsuit on the Internet, I am simply reporting it. I fully well realize that a lawsuit is not decided on a blog.
Also, those posts were not mine. The Fields, Martin and Dupree minions would have you believe that all is well in Pinevile, and the only one that finds anything wrong with them is me. However, I was not in the crowd of ministers and Pineville citizens that met at Louisiana College and discussed a possible recall of the mayor. I was also not the one complaining of sewer backing up in my house on local TV. I am not the retired fire chief who has filed an ethics complaint on Dupree. My drinking water and ice maker didn't fill up with sewer. These are just a few of the better known issues.
Apparently the Pineville bunch has not yet realized that 3 years of attacks on my character will not stop me from reporting any of their wrongdoing I find. Notice that they do not respond to allegations made against them, they simply attack those they expose them. Now that's a looser. Also notice how many on here tell me to post about corrpution elsewhere, but they often re-post my posts here? So carry on the 2 or 3 Pinevillians who post pro- Pineville administration propoganda, we know the truth.

I tried to listen this morning objectively to compare the "monthly update" between Jacque Roy and Clarence Fields. I had never noticed before. Fields starts every answer off with "thats something we are looking into" and then follows it up with dribble. At least our Cajun Mayor gives an answer. I do have to admit though that bringing with him 2 nuns to talk to about "good works" was a nice touch to try to redefine Mayor Budweiser Fields as a 'good man" I think it will be interesting to watch all the little pr tricks that they try to pull over the next few weeks to "redefine" Mayor Bud.

Anonymous said...

Ha! Jaques gets on the radio and talks about infrastructure, planned growth, utilities , developing a qualified economic development team . Fields talks about Clean City award and getting the city to pay for a better road to his house! Isn"t this the same road that was owned by the Parish but because the Police Jury wouldn't pay for it Fields got the City to annex it in? More people need to listen to these monthy "chats" that Fields has on the radio.

Anonymous said...

That particular road that you are talking about has been in bad shape for years. So are you saying that since the Mayor moved out there that the City has taken the road from the Police Jury just so that the City can pave it? Is that legal? Is it right? Hell, my road has potholes all over it wonder how I get the Mayor to pave it?

Anonymous said...

I think the poster's point was that if it the road is so bad and the Mayor cared so much why not do something about the road before instead of AFTER he moves out there. There are lots of roads that have gone neglected by this administration. Maybe if he or his family had to drive on those roads he would get them fixed. Self serving decisions. The caller this morning called it right. "Now that the Mayor has moved in we expected the road to get fixed." Rollins said "the Mayor doesnt work like that" He is being hoodwinked too.

Anonymous said...

So this road was located outside of the City of Pineville and the Mayor brought it into the City and the road is getting preference over roads that are already IN the City limits just because the Mayor lives on the road and has to travel on it? HOW much is that costing?

I don't care how bad the road is. Decisions on where to spend City Money and what construction needs to be done should not be decided based upon what is best for our elected officials. What arrogance.

Anonymous said...

This is the same Mayor and City Aldermen who tried to give themselves raises right after getting re elected. I do not think they care if it appears self serving or not to buy the road from the Parish and then have the city Pave it so the Mayor can ride in style to his big new house.

You are absolutely right we should respect and appreciate good leadership that makes decisions based only upon whats best for our community . Like that BMX bike Track that has grass that is shoulder high. Not the first bike has been driven on it. The City only wasted $50,000 on that one. But...Maybeeeee when the Mayor has a grandchild that likes to ride bikes we can look forward to the City actually cleaning it up and running it and putting some of that money already wasted to use.

Wrong - that's called community development. Community development provides basic infrastructure such as roads, sewer, water, housing, etc. so that economic development can occur. Often community development is forced to occur because of huge economic development growth - thus the increase in housing development along this particular road.

Anything that is built they call Economic develpement . They really don't know the difference but take credit for all of it.
This road they are talking about was due to be repaired by the Parish. But evidently the Fields couldn't wait that long so they had the Parish give the City the road so that they could pave Clarences driveway all the way to Hwy 28 e. If you believe that that is good honest government then you fit in real good with a state that is considered #1 in corruption and no 50th in intellegent leadership.

Are you addressing this to me? If so, let me remind you that this is not your blog. You can control what is posted on a blog of your own, but this isn't yours. Apparently, with no evidence, you think that I post every statement made that is critical of Pineville. There is little I can do, however, to cure your ignorance. I would suggest that if you do not like something I or others post, be an adult, scroll past it, and stop you whining.
I think you are very closed minded and biased if you think it is alright for others to attack me on this blog, and I not respond. When I do respond, I sign my name. I can do nothing about it if you you want to accuse me of making all the anti-Pineville posts on this blog. Nor can you stop me, or others, from posting here or tell us what we can post about. Quint Carriere is the only one that can do so, and he has committed himself to free speech. Maybe you are the one that should go elsewhere.
