Bank of America, Citigroup punished for post-Parkland gun control policies in Louisiana vote


A Louisiana commission voted Thursday to block two banking giants from taking part in a new highway project, moving to punish the companies for gun control policies they adopted after the Parkland, Florida, school shooting this year.

Citigroup and Bank of America had said they would work only with retailers who agreed to new restrictions on gun purchases — rules stricter than what federal law requires.

Louisiana’s bond commission said it wouldn’t tolerate that kind of bullying over a constitutional right and voted 7-6 to block the companies from gaining a piece of the financing for a $600 million highway plan.

The vote was a win for pro-gun advocates looking to make inroads in a debate that is increasingly spilling into the corporate arena, and comes as major service companies and social media giants move to adopt anti-firearms policies.

“If you have zero respect for the U.S. Constitution, then you don’t need to do business with the state of Louisiana,” said Sen. John N. Kennedy, a Republican who cheered his state’s move from Washington.

And the day after the election democrats will say, "What happened?". Proving once again they are not fast learners and continue their denial about reality.

Midterm Elections Blue Wave Looking Doubtful, Says CBS News Head Pollster

The CBS News head pollster has some information for Democrats expecting a Blue Wave to take over the House and more in November’s midterm elections: It’s not looking good.

In Where Did You Get That Number?, a new book out Tuesday from Simon & Schuster, author Anthony Salvanto, the CBS pollster, explains his methodology for tracking the 2016 presidential election, considered one of the biggest upsets in electoral history, and how those lessons apply for the coming season.

Studying the exit polls in 2016 for CBS News coverage of the presidential election, Salvanto saw what was happening – Hillary Clinton was losing ground, and voters who hadn’t cast ballots were not likely to vote for her.  Salvanto delivered his verdict to the networks anchors and producers: “This is a contested race.”

“Remember, in a midterm, you have to watch each congressional seat — don’t pay attention to national numbers.”

The CBS News Battleground Tracker has a panel of 5,700 registered voters, with the majority in the districts that are highly contested. That poll indicates that few House seats will change parties in November, with the GOP likely holding its majority in the House.

This was a problem decades ago when I was in the army, but nothing to the extreme it is today.
I blame NAFTA, where some contractors subcontract to China for smaller parts with little to no QC or oversight, leading to failure of the overall part, and only then does an investigation occur, which lends to this report being such a high number.

Oh I don't know, that Jesus guy was pretty clear about harming those smaller and weaker; as in don't do it.  And cherish the family / community.

I'm thinking things took a bad turn when Popes became royalty, and the Church accrued more money and treasure than most countries.  And the main goal became preserving and growing those things.

I wish that the UN would cart their silly asses to the Gaza strip, and that the Church would takes it's riches and very publicly liquidate, giving it all to good causes.

You'd see a lot of the upper crust in both organizations, suddenly have other things to do when their luxury and power and extravagance all dried up.  They'd all run to the EU and try to wrap their lips around that big teat.

It is considered 'haute culture' to intensely dislike rational thought and arguments based upon fact.

I have been a supporter of Prager for years and will continue to support him and his efforts but I have no illusion as to the acceptance he and his group will receive from the group-think opposition emanating from the ignorant progressives.

Prager and Judicial Watch need and deserve all the support we can muster-- my opinion, only.
I can't imagine anyone on the Right not agreeing with your opinion, only leftists hate the truth.
