Why is Obama avoiding to travel to the Mississippi Gulf Coast as he was in Louisiana, Alabama, and Florida?
Is he prejudice against the people in Mississippi?
Does it perhaps have to do that Mississippi was the only state that seriously went after the Black Panther organization for voter intimidation and that doing this was not palatable to Barack Obama.
Obama is the anti-christ

My bros are looking to take a road truip and trying to see history stuff and stieand things but don’t have many bens. any ideas where to go
Since my home land was not on the list, Mexico, and neither was our territory of California, I guess Texas and Florida. However, if you are a minority, do not go to Texas. They are a lot of hatred brewing there and differently do not go up to Alaska. Alaska is very expensive and it is as white as snow.
I noticed her while watching Sports Center Sunday morning and thought she was beautiful. I’m sure she’s a local journalist in Louisiana, but who is she?
Tracy Wolfson. She’s with CBS Sports.

I am considering moving to Louisiana next year. I have a good group of friends, support system and place of worship there that I am fairly connected with.
What I question is the environment/culture. I currently live in Wisconsin, and worry about the differences,
What is the food like? I’ve heard a vast array of things, and don’t know fact from fiction.
What is the wildlife like? What about insects?
I’ve heard there are roaches….if you get your home sprayed, will they still come around?
I am fine with the weather/temperature/etc. That will not bother me at all.
Is it a safe area to live (Baton Rouge)?
Is Louisiana a Republican or Democratic state overall?
What is the sales tax when you buy stuff…in Wisconsin it is 5.01%, wondering what it is in LA?
I have done a lot of research online, and have not found much on any of these subjects.
Thank you in advance.
The culture is unlike anywhere you may have been. It is very unique, but I have not ever heard of anyone complain yet about out way of living.
Food is very abundant and cheap. You will have many seafood restaurants to choose from, though we do have great steak restaurants also. Plus, many people have craw fish or crab boils, and both are very delicious.
Our wildlife is very spread out. We have bears, coyotes, shrimp, trout, ducks, and deer. We have many kinds of insects, just about anything you can think of. Roaches are plentiful, but if you keep up with a routine spray around your house, you should be fine.
Baton Rouge is a pretty safe area to live. We have well established neighborhoods and communities all around.
Louisiana is pretty dominant Republican state.
And our sales tax is currently at 4%

If you’re an avid traveller, you’re likely to have taken all the ‘usual’ vacations – from beach breaks and mountain retreats to spa getaways. And if you don’t get the opportunity to travel much, you’ll undoubtedly want your trips to be extraordinary and well-worth your time. The reality is that while there are countless types of fulfilling recreational pursuits out there, travellers are always looking for new and interesting ways to spend their vacations. After all, everyone wants to come away with a holiday experience that’s not only unique, but unforgettable.
A gem in the realm of vacations has long been the culinary tour. Yet this type of getaway has kept a perpetual sense of novelty, quite simply because there are so many ways to relish it. When you go to a beach, you can expect sun, sand and waves; but when you take a tour reflecting all the cultural and culinary influences upon the cuisine of a region, you might come away with much more than you bargained for. Simply put, if you love travelling, enjoy trying new things and can’t get your fill of good food, a culinary tour is the perfect type of vacation for you.
No matter where you go these days, there’s something delicious to eat. But there are certainly parts of the US which boast a rich culinary history. One of these is undoubtedly New Orleans, Louisiana. Sure, New Orleans is famous for its Mardi Gras celebration and Jazz Fest; but the city, known as “The Big Easy,” is also world-renowned for its culinary customs. New Orleans is noted for its mix of cultures, each of which has held on to its past traditions in some way – and food, like music, just happens to be one of the most prominent of these traditions.
Tour the city’s most famous kitchens and dining rooms – particularly in the French quarter and along Bourbon Street – and learn about the many ethnic influences that have helped shape its history and unique cuisine. Pick up on the culinary contributions of historic restaurants in the area, dating from 1840 to present, and learn the distinctions between Creole and Cajun foods! No matter how you go about it, you can’t go wrong with a culinary tour in New Orleans.
Alternatively, why not combine a culinary tour with a wine-tasting excursion? Napa Valley, California is undoubtedly the ideal destination if this idea strikes your fancy. Napa Valley is the American capital of food and wine, and a region which attracts countless visitors from around the world each year. By touring a winery, you can come to appreciate the various processes involved in producing an exquisite wine – from harvesting and fermentation to ageing. And aside from all the fantastic culinary treasures and premium wines, you can expect stunning, picturesque scenery. Whether you’re a novice or an accomplished wine connoisseur, a wine and culinary tour in Napa Valley is guaranteed to delight you. Moreover, Napa Valley is just 30 miles north of San Francisco, so you could easily make your way down to try the culinary treats of the “Golden Gate City” – which includes those in America’s largest Chinatown.
If you’re considering a culinary tour, rest assured that you’ll find a number of fantastic options for accommodation – regardless of whether you’re off to the east coast, west coast or deep south. A culinary tour is truly one of the best ways to become acquainted with a city’s culture and unique character – so why not book a culinary tour today and prepare to have your taste buds dazzled!
I love to be near swamps or lakes, I like the whole setting in "skeleton key" the music and forgot to mention the food..is it cool there?
lots of weird haunted houses too?
I like it when I could row a boat and the lake/swamp/marsh is just a few feet away
Well, now dahlin’ we got da swamps and da lakes. We got "skeleton key"—-we got music and hon we done learned to cook good cajun food. It be good to be from south louisiana. But it is NEVER cool in south louisiana–especially—in the summer. There are loads of haunted houses (according to the tour guides) and we love our history. Now—as for the who thing about it being terrible because of Katrina—it is nothing like it used to be but it isn’t as bad as it was shortly after the storm came ashore.
You are welcome to come and visit. You are welcome to come and stay. WE need more good folks down here……we love our life style. Remember—New Orleans slogan was "The City that Care Forgot—but not the city that forgot to care." Come on down. We look forward to seeing ya.
You have a nice day now—ya hear?
