    Same here. Went to the fabled bourbon street. It stunk like urine.
    I hated it.
    Haven’t been back. Never will.
    I saw a episode of Dirty Jobs where the city has a cleaning department for the area that picks up all the trash. After that they use a high pressure water hose to wash away the urine and turds left behind.


    I never wanted to visit after that.

    Want things to make better sense? First step is to stop calling those people "democrats". They're commies. (Or "commiecrats", if you prefer.) Stop letting them pretend that they belong to a political party that believes in democracy. They support the globalists who want to concentrate all power into the hands of a small, ruling elite. They're not letting millions of people cross our borders because they feel sorry for them; they are bringing them in to form a poor segment of the population that will be forever dependent on the government for their basic needs and will vote to keep the commiecrats in office forever.

    And remember this fundamental concept: Private ownership of firearms is not compatible with communism.
    They want to rule us. Nowhere does gun control work except, you actually controlling your gun. Either they are completely stupid or this is truly the agenda.

    Notice all the Pols want us to remember all the school shootings but ignore the normal everyday murder rate. To promote gun surrender! Tell your kids a normal working young person is paying 20% of the paycheck to the Gov. MINIMUM! 10% Fed, 8% sales, 9% state and another 10% if real estate. Figure it out.

    A policy that protects criminals seems like a thing NOPD would do....

    A couple years back, a teen thug gang carjacked a White Grandmother, dragged her, tore her arm off, & killed her.

    see: https://www.wwltv.com/article/news/...ults/289-889768eb-f4c6-485a-ae18-3800daf06165



    New Orleans’ then-Mayor & Landrieu Stooge Cantrell attended the bail bond hearing to demand that they be released without bail.

    What worse could they do ? Who wants to go to a place like that ?

    About 68-72 was the change I think.

    JD, that timeline works for me. I do remember sitting in 8th grade Spanish class in Dallas when the intercom said JFK had just been shot a few miles away. Then MLK and RFK assassinated. Vietnam was then going big time by my time to enlist in 1967, and then all the protests and drugs. At age 18 I didn't know what country I lived in before I went over and much less the one I came back to 13 months later. Something damn sure screwed up our country and has only gotten worse...

    This is a photo I took on my way to lunch one day. Car with multiple bullet holes is parked at driveway curb of the ambulatory & employee entrances of the old LSU IH Emergency Department in N.O. This is b/t the building and the Police Emergency parking. About a year later, there was a big drug dealer shootout on the street some 70’ away, right in front of seven parked NOPD, LSP, & S.O. patrol units.

    The old CHNO nearby had several actual shootings happening INSIDE their E.D.

    I’d advise any of y’all ever transporting prisoners to never let them get near your weapons. One of those in-house shootings happened while my older Daughter was the Charge Nurse on duty and involved a prisoner obtaining his escort’s weapon while still manacled.

    The local geniuses were searching US Faculty Docs for weapons, but not the BG patients.

    In an earlier case, a Physician Colleague had to shoot s BG who attacked him w/ a knife just outside the E.D. door. Doc shot the BG, then dragged him back in by his heels to take care of him.

    Once more, I advise not going there unless you must.

    An earlier Mayor had special wash-truck caravans twice a day, 3X/day weekends & holidays; which washed & rinsed streets & sidewalks. Current regime reduced frequency to once daily.

    It is a virtual cesspool in several respects.

    I was there for University in the late 1960’s.

    I saw fifth-generation welfare recipient housing project FAMILIES back then, all races.

    LBJ’s NOT-SO “Great Society’’, with AFDC payments, destroyed low-income Black Families.

    Wow. SCOTUS to take on ghost gun case. Reported that thousands are confiscated yearly from bad guys. That they let out with no bail. Expect SCOTUS will agree with ATF. Courts are trash anymore.

    It's not just ghost guns- it's all gun parts. Could be barrels or triggers as they are components required for 3D printed blaster.

    The left tends to lump guns with obliterated serial numbers and improvised firearms in with "ghost guns" so they can inflate the numbers and go after 80% kit manufacturers.

    Make no mistake. The ultimate goal is to take away ALL ARMS. Not just guns. But ALL means of self defense.

    Even bows and knives.
    <>

    Agreed.

    I’ve been watching London with their gun control GUN BAN, knife control, hammer control, wrench control, now umbrella control.

    We were in Nova Scotia a few years back when the guy shot 5 Mounties in New Brunswick with his AR15. The Canadians are as bad as the Californians.
