Hello everyone from the chicken coup. We birds have been down with the flu that is going around, so this Scratch will be a little short.We birds noticed recently in the headlines that it will cost everyone another 1 cent tax to shop in the new Hobby Lobby. That will drive the tax up shopping there at close to 11%. This simply means that us birds and you taxpayer will pay the cost to have the Hobby Lobby locate here. We realize that some of you ladies won’t mind paying for it because of you love of the store. We birds think this is setting a bad precedent in Natchitoches. Why should the taxpayers foot the bill for infrastructure for the store and does this mean that when other stores locate here, will we be paying an additional tax at those stores. If Hobby Lobby really wants to come to Natchitoches, should they not pay for their own infrastructure and not ask the same people who will shop there to pay extra. We think not!Mr. Chicken read where our U S Senator Bill Cassidy voted against President Trump on the war powers resolution. It is a sad day for our state. This resolution will likely be vetoes by our president and should. To tie his hands over issues like killing the terrorist leader Soleimani and other terrorists is wrong and for our republican senator to vote with the democrats is an insult to those who elected him. We birds believe his is acting like Senator Romney from Utah. The president has shown us birds that he has wisdom when it comes to foreign governments and military affairs. Shame on you Cassidy.Have a great week!Mr. Chicken
