Can we recall John Bel Edwards? Seriously, I can’t believe he has the gall to come on my TV and scare the hell out of me and my family with all sorts of bad news about the state budget.
That never happened under Gov. Bobby Jindal. He never frightened me with all sorts of talk about multibillion-dollar shortfalls, cash flow problems, or closing universities. And he certainly never terrified me and my husband with the threat of no college football!
So what if they quit offering classes because they can’t afford to keep teaching them? What the hell do classes have to do with football, anyway? The LSU Athletic Department has plenty of money, so that means the players can still play, right?
Instead of raising taxes, can’t the state just sell more property or use more accounting tricks? I mean, if it worked for eight years under Jindal, why reinvent the wheel?
Were things bad under Jindal? Maybe, but I never knew it, because Jindal always told me everything was awesome and getting even better.
The bottom line is I don’t want a governor who offers doomsday scenarios. I just want a governor who will tell me “It’s a great day for Louisiana,” like Bobby Jindal did.
Were things bad under Jindal? Maybe, but I never knew it, because Jindal always told me everything was awesome and getting even better. I miss Jindal blowing smoke up my ass, unlike Mr. Gloomy Gus we have now, threatening to cut TOPS.
What kind of a monster would tell me my kid might have to pay for his own way to college when the state has been covering tuition for so many years? Sure, my husband and I are in the top 1% of income earners in the state and my son drives a $40,000 car, but I’ll be goddam if we have to pay tuition! That’s the state’s responsibility!
Edwards is an emotional terrorist who’s violating my political safe space with his scare tactics, like telling me worst-case scenarios. He just wants to frighten us with so-called “reality” so he can raise taxes and give free stuff to poor people.
You want to solve the budget problem? Quit giving money to poor people and give it to my kid instead to pay his tuition.
In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that Edwards is cutting TOPS just so more people will vote for Bernie Sanders for free college! That rat bastard, holding my kid’s education hostage to promote his socialist agenda! Recall Edwards now!
