PHOTO SURFACES Of LOUISIANA LEGISLATIVE Candidate ROBBIE GATTI As BLACK-FACED TIGER WOODS!!!



Monday, February 27, in BOSSIER CITY, LA, LOUISIANA HOUSE Of REPRESENTATIVES Candidate ROBBIE GATTI (R: BOSSIER CITY) said a photo that has surfaced of him in blackface was from "a good night at church" now turned into "negative political mud."
The photo appeared on The Hayride, a political blog.
ROBBIE GATTI is also an ORDAINED MINISTER.
 The BATON ROUIGE ADVOCATE (The ADVOCATE) reports he said he was dressed as Professional Golfer TIGER WOODS, and the photo was taken at a fall festival 15 years ago.
Candidate ROBBIE GATTI said;
"15 years ago, my church held a fall festival, where all the volunteers were told to dress as a famous person. Tiger Woods was at the height of his popularity, as a world champion, and that was who I was dressed as. Shortly after this event, I was ordained into the church. As a medical professional, ordained minister and military officer, I live my life seeing only character and I stand by that. I'm sad that my opponents have taken a good night at church and turned it into negative, political mud, but I'm confident the voters of Bossier will not fall for their desperate attacks."

 Gatti is in the race to replace Rep. MIKE JOHNSON (R: BOSSIER CITY), who in December 2016, was elected to the U.S. HOUSE Of REPRESENTATIVES.

The SPECIAL ELECTION is Tuesday, March 25, 2017.

The 2017 OSCARS On THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER MAG!!!



THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER got 19 HOLLYWOOD A-LISTERS attempt to explain, Why the OSCARS STILL MATTER, and/or; WHY The OSCARS NO LONGER Matter, in the 2017 OSCARS ISSUE of THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER Magazine!!!

GAYLE KING said;
"I lived in Turkey when I was a kid, from first grade to sixth grade, so I didn't grow up thinking, "I've got to watch the Oscars." In my early 20s was when I started watching it — and I've just been hooked ever since.
The first time I got to go was [in 1986] when Oprah was nominated for best supporting actress in The Color Purple. And it was just dazzling. We were in L.A. that weekend, and everyone kept coming up to her and saying, "You're going to win. I voted for you." And I believed it. She was petrified and mortified because she had this dress, and the day before the Oscars [she tried it on and] it was too big. So she asked the tailor to come and take it in. He then made it too small. And she discovered that an hour before the show. So she was sitting there thinking, "Please don't call my name, please don't call my name, please don't call my name." Because of her dress! Prizzi's Honor won that year: Anjelica Huston, also a very good performance. But I really thought Oprah had it because so many people stopped her."

Scientist NEIL DeGRASSE TYSON said;
"The Oscars matter because they give us all something to argue about other than our political differences.

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA said;
"My brain is a compendium of Oscar moments: Tom Hanks' beautiful acceptance speech when he won best actor for Philadelphia in 1994. Roberto Benigni climbing over chairs and wanting to make love to everybody in the world when Life Is Beautiful won best foreign-language film in 1999. Kim Basinger presenting in 1990 and telling the audience that one of the best films of the year, Do the Right Thing, was not nominated. For her to take a stand, 25 years before #OscarsSoWhite, was incredible — and impressive because time has shown the prescience of that film.
I expect we'll see more of that this year. It's a political time, so I imagine the Oscars will look exactly like your Twitter or Facebook feed. Why should we ignore for three hours what we're talking about 24 hours a day?
The Oscars were always a family affair when I was a kid. One sort of unintentional tradition we had every year was during the "In Memoriam" part of the show. My family called it the "She died?" section because my dad, who is pop culture-oblivious, would always go, "She died? He died? She died?!" the whole time. So, it was very sad and yet also very funny watching my dad catch up."

I LOVE 2 EAT #145: BURGER KING ACQUIRES POPEYES For $1.8 BILLION!!!

Image result for popeyes

THIS post only serves to prove to NEW ORLEANS-born-and-bred Yours Truly CCG that there truly is nothing sacred left in the world!!!

NEW ORLEANS-born/ATLANTA-based POPEYES LOUISIANA KITCHEN is being acquired for $1.8 billion by the Canadian company that owns BURGER KING.
AJC  reports RESTAURANT BRANDS INTERNATIONAL (RBI) announced the planned purchase Tuesday.
Popeyes chose the RBI offer over a competing offer from Arby’s Restaurant Group, another Atlanta-based fast food chain, according to a Bloomberg report.
In an announcement of the deal, RBI said Popeyes will continue to be managed independently “while benefitting from the global scale and resources of RBI.”
RBI said it “plans to continue developing the brand at an increasing pace in the U.S. and international markets in the years to come.
The cash deal equates to $79 a share, a 27 percent premium over Popeye’s 30-day trading average on Feb. 10, when media speculation about a deal surfaced.
Popeyes was founded in New Orleans by Entrepreneur/Restauranteur AL COPELAND in 1972, but later became part of Atlanta-based AFC Enterprises. 
In 2014 the name was changed to Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen.
Popeyes CEO Cheryl Bachelder said in a statement, “RBI has observed our successand seen the opportunity for exceptional future unit growth in the U.S. and around the world.”
In addition to Burger King, RBI also owns Tim Hortons, a quick-service chain in Canada.

ULTIMATELY; this means POPEYES is now CANADIAN!!!
