Remember, this has already passed the FULL Senate UNANIMOUSLY (NON-PARTISAN), but the house may be a harder sell.

Our opponents are going to make a big charade. A shit show of logical fallacy and spin. Propaganda, threats and misinformation. During the European witch-hunts the legal notion of crimen exceptum (an exceptional and most dangerous crime] allowed for the suspension of the normal rules of evidence to punish the guilty.

“Witch hunting,” wrote the historian Rossell Hope Robbins, “was self-sustaining and became a major trade, employing many people, all battening on the savings of the victims.” Same applies to these asshats so if you have not place your vote in this 11th hour then please do so now. Make it short and sweet. Quick and to the point.

John Milkovich (D-Shreveport).

Both boards have for years flown under the radar of governors, legislators and the media but more and more, attention is being given to their near-autonomous rule by intimidation and extortion.

PHF, also known as the Healthcare Professionals’ Foundation of Louisiana (HPFL), is located on Bluebonnet Boulevard in Baton Rouge and it currently is about halfway through a three-year, $1.35 million contract with the Board of Medical Examiners to run a “Statewide Operations of Physicians Health Program.”

And, since the Board of Dentistry has been mentioned, it might be worth noting that PHF also is just over a year into a three-year, $287,000…
