I grew up on the mean streets of the Internet, and for some reason, they made me a Front Page writer here. I'm also a Louisiana educator, freelance journalist, and most importantly a husband and father. Follow me on Twitter: @JoePCunningham


    Mary’s Reinforcements: Daddy

    In some ways, Louisiana’s jungle primary system is great in that we get all our stuff done in 30 days, unlike the other states that have party primaries and political battles that get dragged on for months after a primary. The downside is that with all the excitement going on in Georgia, Kentucky, Iowa and other places, we get overlooked this summer. However, the battle | Read More »

    The Strategy of Conservative Insurgency

    Right now, there are three kinds of conservative insurgent, and they are best explained through the lens of the Kentucky Senate primary. The first is the depressed conservative insurgent. This person is so troubled by Matt Bevin’s loss that they cannot currently be made to feel better. They had pitted all their hopes in taking down the biggest fish the Establishment had to offer, and | Read More »

    Rejecting the Cult of Death™

    Rejecting the Cult of Death™

    *Promoted from the diaries. – Aaron* I’m not a plumber, but I do know that I do not have the proper plumbing to incubate and produce a child. Three years ago, I would have told you that means I really can’t speak on the subject of abortion because I could never know the emotional or physical toll being pregnant and having a child would bring. | Read More »

    Jill Abramson and Income Disparity

    By now, you’ve either heard the news of Jill Abramson being fired from the New York Times or you are blissfully unaware of the drama in the professional media. If you fall into the latter category, you have an inner peace within you that I yearn to one day achieve. Regardless, one of the issues that is getting played out to no end is the | Read More »

    Republicans and Donald Trump

    So, this morning, I saw a tweet promoted by the Republican Leadership Conference 2014 account, and I was curious because, you know, New Orleans is a two hour drive and I could’ve taken a day to go check this out. I clicked the link and immediately decided it was not worth a missed day of work. Why? The latest speakers to confirm are Donald Trump, | Read More »

    Mary Landrieu thinks it’s Republicans that lack commitment on the Keystone XL

    “U.S. Senator Landrieu questions Republican commitment to Keystone” is the funniest headline you’ll see today. Thank your higher powers that it was brought to us by Reuters. Democratic U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu accused Republicans on Wednesday of being more interested in exploiting the long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline project as an election issue than in voting to build it. In a speech on the Senate | Read More »

    A Disturbing Casting Call

    Via The Daily Caller, this is a story that, in my mind, is more horrific even that the stories of fetuses being burned as fuel. Emily Letts, a counselor at a New Jersey abortion clinic, decided to film her own abortion and post it on YouTube as a form of positive inspiration to women who are contemplating having the procedure but worry that they might | Read More »

    Latest Landrieu Ad Says Nothing

    *Promoted from the Diaries. – Aaron* Once again, Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana for the person on Twitter who once called me out for not listing in the first mention that she was a Democrat) is trying to retain her seat in the U.S. Senate by doing the exact same thing she’s done the rest of the race – say nothing. Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu is out | Read More »

    Donald Sterling and Sodomy

    First, let us agree that Donald Sterling is an awful human being. The subsequent paragraphs is in no way a defense of what Donald Sterling said, but rather a condemnation of the practice of attacking someone’s right to say what he or she wants in the privacy of their home. It is a condemnation of the practice of silencing speech. It is a condemnation of | Read More »

    The Pope, Inequality and Social Evil

    Pope Francis raised a few eyebrows today with a post that equated inequality with social evil. Some called for equal pay and labor unions (because of course they would) and some called the man a communist (because of course they would). But, are his thoughts really out of line with both Catholicism and society at large? The problem with a broad statement like the tweet | Read More »
