SB185 - Let New Orleans Fix Their Own Gun Problems

SB185 - Let New Orleans Fix Their Own Gun Problems

"New Orleans has struggled with an epidemic of gun violence. New Orleans officials want to move forward with sorely needed solutions to gun violence but Louisiana state law bars its municipalities from enacting smart legislation for the people by the people. The hands of the New Orleans City Council and its mayor are tied."

- SUSAN GUIDRY & JASON WILLIAMS

New Orleans City Council Members

Scapegoating and a Fresh Coating (of BS)

Scapegoating and a Fresh Coating (of BS)

It isn't just Facebook. Distraction is the rule in Public Relations and a must-have skill for Masters of Spin. Is Facebook being thrown to the wolves to protect ad dollars?

Digital media companies are shaking in their boots. Set to make over $83 Billion in digital ad revenue this year, keeping your criticisms aimed at Facebook, keeps your eyes off them. EVERY media company is doing this. What sites did you visit today? Guess what, they "mined your data".

Hey Louisiana - You think your roads are bad now?

Hey Louisiana - You think your roads are bad now?

Our Louisiana roads are amongst the worst in the nation. Repairs are already underfunded via a gas tax and we have no new plans for additional funding sources. So, what happens when electric vehicles are the norm? Does Louisiana become the Blockbuster video of states? With our current political system, it's almost impossible to get elected without Oil & Gas money and almost as soon as they are elected, our elected officials have to start raising money for their reelection. This version of graft stands in the way of any real solutions.  

Alabama Election - Jones vs. Moore, Who Said Democracy is Cheap? Or Easy?

Alabama Election - Jones vs. Moore, Who Said Democracy is Cheap? Or Easy?

Many factors played a role in this historic win in Alabama last night, however it wouldn't have happened without a lot of money. Jones raised more than twice as much as Moore. 91% of all elections are won by the candidate who raised the most money. Although it appears to have worked out in this situation, we need to make elections equitable for ALL American citizens all the time.

Food - The Butterfly Effect & Sustainable Sustinance

Food - The Butterfly Effect & Sustainable Sustinance

Join the Discussion: Make It Fair's Harmon Dash & Culinaria Director, Pepper Bowen. Food deserts, invasive species, environmental issues and toxins, diet change effects... all are multi-sided issues. Profit and loss, cultural considerations, protecting human and planetary health are just a few food industry factors. For food policy and culture, the "Butterfly Effect" is in full force. Also, not only has decades of marketing convinced many American's to eat against their own self-interest, but the American diet and appetites reach far beyond the dinner table and the scale. One thing is clear, there's no easy fix for businesses nor individuals and no solution which will make everyone happy. However, at this point is it about happiness or sustainability?

New Orleans District B City Council Candidate Dr. Andre Strumer - 10.7.17

New Orleans District B City Council Candidate Dr. Andre Strumer - 10.7.17

Dr. Strumer discusses the impediments and obstructions he's faced during this election process seemingly because he doesn't have the routine New Orleans developer and construction connections and the campaign contributions which comes with those connections. Make It Fair doesn't endorse candidates, but it's clear we'll only have more of the same if we only listen to those taking the money. Let's stop money from being a megaphone.
