Fleming and Mike Johnson compliment each other well.. The district they represent explains everything about their idiotic stances in politics.

Yep. Shreveport and Benton...both suck

...and its funny, I remember before Fleming entered politics when he was just a money'd up doctor who also owned every Subway in Shreveport. Even then, nobody really liked the guy...especially his employees. It's weird what that amount of wealth does to people and how out of touch they become.

The man is a doctor that's a politician who advocates strongly against medical marijuana - a stand a vast majority of doctors disagree with him on where it's legal to prescribe it.

Default Rednecks in New Orleans...

Compared to other Southern Cities, I get the sense there are not as many in NO.

But, I have only visited 4 times in the last 4 years, and that is not enough time.

Any feedback from the locals or those that know NO very well...about the "redneck" situation in NO would be appreciated.

I spent several years growing up in a couple of different small southern towns, and I met several people who were proud to call themselves rednecks. I'm not sure what you consider a redneck, but if you mean people who drive lifted trucks with confederate flags flying in the back, no, you don't see that here. To be honest, New Orleans doesn't really feel like it is part of the South. The geography, yes, but the people in South Louisiana are unique in America.

Thank you for the feedback.
NO is a place I am strongly considering making a move to. My only concern is the lack of career opportunities, and the slower pace of life.
But, when I factor in the uniqueness of the city, the top school (Tulane), the sports teams, the good weather, and the low cost of living compared to other similar cities in the USA, I think it may be worth it.
