Just another stupid "scripted" show that will make Louisianians look really ignorant.
We already have "Cajun Pawn", Bayou Billionaires", "Swamp People", "Billie the Exterminator" etc., etc!

Was Piyush the governor when you were in school not learning about the history of India and the proper use of the English language? If that were the case, then I could understand how you might be upset about his job performance.

Jindal is a puppet for the corporate giants,
He waged war on the middle class you can't deny it!
He hates teachers, hospitals, and state prisons alike.
He loves his black hawk when the state pays for his flight.
He gives big tax breaks for a large oil company to create jobs.
Yet more middle class find only reason to sob.
$50,000 per employee is a lot, but its the price he pays to raise the campaign pot.
That is not state employees pay, it's the tax encentive given to giants who play.
Bobby the exorcist has his own demons to expell, they lie, cheat and deceive us so well.
He uses Louisiana as a stepping stone ,but he will step no higher because the truth will be known.
The giants have become too hungry by now and in his effort to feed them He will bring himself down.
He has weakened the state with his corporate ball, this is a house of cards that is ready to fall.
This session more lies will be told , we don't need public schools or roads.
We can't afford state prisons? Don't buy it!, there is money to be made by business giants.
Come one and all to see the show, bobby's blonde will do the talking but he will not show.
He will hide away to hope for a flood or spill of oil, so he can get on CNN
and pretend to be loyal
Your elected officials will be threatened and intimidated, kIcked off committee's and opponents will be slated.
Jindal cares not for Louisiana's good people the least, but for only those who will support his drive to be commander in chief

I usually vote Republican.
I voted for Jindal in his first run for governor.
But I sure didn't vote for him a second time. I have seen what he has done to Pinecrest State School, how he has sold out state retirees by farming out Group Benefits to Blue Cross, etc., etc.
But he hasn't been idicted yet. He hasn't been convicted yet.That is something Mr. edwards can't claim.
