Why Iberville has been a poor parish for so long.
At one point in time, Iberville was a pretty rich parish. It has not been so for decades.
Why was it this way?
There are several reasons Iberville Parish and the city of Plaquemine fallen from grace. Economically, the mom and pops went out of business ane either were replaced by the big stores (Wal-Mart) and more mom and pops did not open. Even if some Joe Blow opened a small business he did not stick with it long enough to make it a success. I am not referring to the the people that grew up here but to those that moved here and were not successful.
Another reason was the so much of the land was tied to so few of the families. If this is the case, then new blood can’t move into the area. I understand that these families make their money off of farming, but the old guard were greedy, did not understand, or just did not care about the health of the parish.
In general, the populace of the parish skewers to the old side. The reason why is that once the majority of the children graduate high school and move away, they come back to visit but not to stay. This point is, in my opinion, inarguable. If we can get a small percentage of these graduates to come back and then it would definitely help out.
That brings me back to the point of the land Barons. If there is even a shot to get them to give up even a quarter of the land that they own, then the general outlook for the parish will improve.
I will finish by saying this, Thank god for the younger generation. If not for the next generation we would not be on the verge of improving the parish.
The Democrats could be in some serious trouble in the next two to eight years if they keep on the road that they appear to be headed on.
When I say this, what I mean is that they are on a road of obstruction,
Every thing that Trump will put forth, the democrats will try obstruct and stall anything that President Trump will put forth. The Problem comes with the fact that most of the things that President Trump wants to get done are policies that a majority, if only a slim one, want these thing done.
A serious taking away of power could be in the offing for the Democrats keep on the road of their plans for stopping President Trump.
The left side of the progressive isle is on the way to full on mental breakdown.
They are trying to get the election overturned via recount even though the likely-hood of the overturning of the election is less than a five percent chance.
I get that they are they are afraid of what Donald Trump might do and if he would take things too far into it being a person who will be a dictator and put people who disagree with him in jail or flat out have them killed.
I am not arguing with them that this could and/or would possibly happen but you have have to at least let him take the oath of office, have him inaugurated into office, and put his policies into action but they have to put things into action like recounts and the possibilities of states succeeding from the United States.
Point of order for the now freaking out lefties, us conservatives had more of a case for recounts with the current interloper who has been the squatter-in-chief for the seven plus years. We asked them to look at the people who Obama surrounded himself with and their respective pasts but they refused to do so.
I get their fear, but until they do it, it is unfounded.
