state rep chris hazel dont do media or respond to constituents

this morning frequent ksyl talk back live caller "becky" phoned in to "challenge all our (local) legislators to come on the air and tell us what kind of bills they're proposing and supporting. i hear some of the most baloney kinds of things going on and i want to know in a time of crisis like this and it is a time of crisis, what are they proposing?"

perhaps some of the "baloney" kinds of bills ms. becky is referring to are ones like state rep. rickey hardy's HB 103 a state law banning "baggy pants."

or his HB 43 which expands "drug free zones" from 1,000 - 2,000 feet. c.b. forgotston says:

Why not increase the area to, say, 25 miles. That way, the use and sale of illegal drugs would prohibited almost everywhere in the state. Oops! It already is.
or his HB 470 which is a constitutional amendment barring anyone over 70 years of age from qualifying for elective office. a better constitutional amendment would be one barring all black people from lafayette named rickey hardy from holding any elective office or office of public trust. now thats an amendment we could all get behind!

maybe becky has heard of state senator robert adley's SB 128 which will prohibit the sale of "energy drinks" to consumers under the age of sixteen.

or maybe rep. "bodi" white's HB 91 which creates the crime of the unlawful production, manufacturing, distribution, or possession of prohibited plants including:
Artemisia vulgaris (Mugwort).
Canavalia rosea (Bay bean).
Leonotis leonurus (Lion's tail).
Leonotis nepetifolia (Lion's ear).
Leonurus sibiricus (Honeyweed).
Nelumbo nucifera (Sacred Lotus).
Nymphaea caerulea (Blue Lotus, Egyptian Lotus).
Pedicularis densiflora (Indian warrior).
Scutellaria nana (Dwarf skullcap).
Turnera diffusa (Damiana).
Zornia latifolia
once again we have a rethuglican shaking his fist in the face of god to proclaim that whole third day of creation thing of his ... was pretty much a great big fuck up. we on the other hand believe that god in his own time and way will show that bodi white and others like him are the fuck up.

anyone who thinks that this collection of freaks, perverts and criminals we have in the legislative as well as executive branches of government has the intellect, integrity or wherewithal to provide the leadership to get louisiana out of this mess it finds itself in, is in for a big disappointment.

replying to becky's original challenge for local legislators to come on and explain themselves dave graichen says that chris hazel "will not even return our phone calls" and becky responds that "we cant get through to chris hazel, we've never gotten an answer."
