  1. Good post, this is very good information. Things were bad, real bad in the 20s and 30s and history does have a way to repeat itself. There’s a book just out that identifies an individual that sacrificed everything to support the laboring class in Louisiana and across America during the Great Depression. He took on the Roosevelt administration and fought the Banckhead act and called for the removal of Hugh Johnson as the head of the NRA. When he finally dismembered Governor Leche’s former Long organization he became to controversal for Roosevlet. Read more about the man at or Google “I Called Him Grand Dad”. As a Law Partner of Huey Long he fought for the laboring class, as a member of the PSC he took his fight to the state level and as a Federal Prosecutor he took the fight to the national level. Names such as Long, Roosevelt, Farley and Lech are found throughout the writing.
