Independence From British Control?

It has been a good week at de la Houssaye's Swamp Tours, leading up to our 4th of July Independence Day Celebration.

I feel privledged to be an American and enjoy the rights of freedom which were bought and paid for with blood in our American Revolution against the British over two hundred years ago.

If you are wanting to do a swamp tour, I can be reached at 337 298 2630 for reservations. And my advise is you really should make a reservation before driving out to Lake Martin because I maybe fishing for redfish in the marsh for the next few days.

It is starting to look like the 1st amendment right of a free press is being suspended by our federal government who is in cahoots with a British corporation who is making the rules in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill in order to cover up the negligence, and damage it is doing to our people, the wildlife, and our state wetlands environment.

Here is a You Tube audio tape of Billy Nungesser, the President of Plaquimines Parish discussing the Coast Guard enforcing a 60' rule made up by BP to cover up this mess and to keep the media far enough away from the oil spill and dying wildlife to do a fair job of reporting the incompetence and dysfunction of the people in charge of managing and cleaning up this man made disaster.

Billy is a for real, local boy who grew up in New Orleans and tells it like it is.

I believe the audio is self explanatory.

Happy Independence Day.

Here is a link to a You Tube video of Anderson Cooper of CNN doing a story about the suspension of the first amendment right of a free press.
