Gas prices add fuel to the fire

in
Aswell, Taylor.jpg

I have only been driving for seven and a half years, but during that time I have seen price at the pump do crazy things in my short experience driving.
During that time I have had two vehicles, both cars, both capable of saving me some gas money compared to less gas-friendly options that are out there. And even though I am not paying $80 every time I fill up my car, I am still being hurt by the constant rising prices of gas.
On Monday, the price of gas rose for the 20th straight day, pushing the national average around $3.70 a gallon, and the quest toward $4 a gallon seems to be getting closer and closer to reality.

Work to help end La. poverty

in
Ahmed, Saraf.jpg

The onset of the Great Recession has thrown millions of Americans into dire financial stress, with nearly one in eight living permanently in poverty. Sadly, Louisiana remains one of the poorest states in the nation; the 2010 Census Poverty determined that the majority of Louisiana parishes were 16.9 percent or more in poverty. This was mostly in rural northern parishes, and only 11 out of 64 parishes were free from severe poverty. Louisiana’s overall poverty rate is 19.6 percent, compared to the national average of 12.4 percent. The poverty rate in metro or urban Louisiana is 18.1 percent, compared to rural Louisiana’s 24.2 percent, which is nearly a quarter of all rural residents.

Forced to pay for abortion drugs?

Gallagher, Maggie.jpg

Can the government order you to pay for anything if it calls it “health care?”
Can President Obama make you choose between your religious faith and your health care coverage?
Enter Senate bill 1467, the “Respect for Rights of Conscience Act.” The bill, introduced by Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., would repeal the most intrusive part of the Obamacare power grab: the authority Obamacare gives the federal government to compel religious people and faith groups to subsidize as “health care” whatever a government wants.
