Natalie DuBose, the owner of Natalie’s Cakes and More in Ferguson, Missouri, was left devastated after her business was unjustly vandalized during the recent riots over a grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
She reached out to her fellow Americans to help her repair her shop damaged by Ferguson protesters earlier this week. Her business had just held its grand opening over the summer.
DuBose set up a GoFundMe page and aimed to raise a modest $20,000. Thousands of generous Americans quickly stunned the small business owner, donating more than $195,000 in roughly one day.
Many conservative websites, personalities and public figures took up the cause, including actress Patricia Heaton, who used her social media influence on Twitter to drive some of her 243,000 followers to the fundraising page. Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh also gave out the web address of the GoFundMe page on the air. (via theblaze)
"Mary Landrieu has stood up for Louisiana time and again during her 18 years in the U.S. Senate. She fought for our fair share of oil and gas lease revenues. She made sure our communities received vital disaster aid after Hurricane Katrina and the levee breaches, after Hurricane Rita, after Gustav, after Isaac. She understood the need to keep flood insurance premiums affordable long before others in Congress came to that realization.read the rest here...
Her opponent is trying to distract voters from Sen. Landrieu's accomplishments in the Senate. He shouldn't be allowed to get away with that.
The most important question in the Dec. 6 runoff election is who would best represent the interests of Louisiana residents in Washington. The answer is clear: Mary Landrieu.
Her Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act, which passed in 2006, achieved something Louisiana leaders had tried for decades to do: Require the federal government to give our state and other energy-producing states a significant share of revenues from offshore drilling. By 2017, the act will provide an estimated $500 million each year for restoring Louisiana's coast.
Those revenues will benefit Louisianians for generations to come and help families hold onto the land they love"
Mitt Romney has the edge among possible 2016 presidential contenders in a survey of GOP voters released Wednesday, while Hillary Clinton enjoys a huge lead among Democrats.
Romney took the top spot with 19 percent when Republicans were asked whom they would vote for if the primary were held now, according to the Quinnipiac University poll.
From Nov. 18-23, 1,623 registered voters nationwide were surveyed with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. Eleven percent of Republicans said that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) would be their pick.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and conservative author and neurosurgeon Ben Carson each drew shares of 8 percent.
Romney has particularly high name recognition because he has run for president twice before, something that may help him in early polls. He would tie Clinton in a hypothetical matchup.
Clinton demolishes her Democratic competition in a proposed primary, taking 57 percent to Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-Mass.) 13 percent and Vice President Biden's 9 percent
