    I do beleive that you would change the way people look
    at Louisiana. One of my fellow co-workers had to take off
    from work because the city wouldn't allow him to dig a pond
    on his property! If you buy property here who are they to
    say what you can do with "unrestricted" property. I do not
    know what has kept me here this long except my wife and
    children have immediate family here. Con artist businesses
    and politics have corrupted and ruined many lives in this
    state, including mine. I haven't given up hope and will
    continue to strive. I want the children, our future to be
    able to work in a place that doesn't steal their money. A
    place where cousin Jed gets the head position and better pay
    regardless of credentials. Did you know that a minority has
    the right to see SEALED BIDS! How can certain contractors
    receive funds for work never accomplished. I like so many
    citizens here wonder how these people can "joyride" around
    town talking about the latest fishing tournament or game
    excursion. Meanwhile the rest of us work to no avail being
    the lowly citizens who sit helplessly watching from the back
    pew. We are pondering who are these people who live the
    good life, and if I didn't have a felony conviction that I
    might be part of the police state crew also.
