| Political Talk|| Alabama Gov Bentley: Corporations should pay more in taxes - AlaTiger on 3/3/15 at 7:22 pm|
@GovernorBentley: If Alabama families have to pay their fair share of taxes, so should large national and international corporations.
This is a Republican in a state that has given massive subsidies to corporations to move to Alabama and set up shop. Is he trying to change the rules? Is this sent...
| SEC Rant|| How did Arkansas get so good at football by the end of last season? - AlaTiger on 3/3/15 at 7:11 pm|
Almost beat Miss. St. and destroyed LSU and Ole Miss. Won their bowl game I think. I honestly don't remember as the LSU/Ole Miss wins are all that I really remember about that team.
But, what led to the turnaround that enabled those two big wins?
Will Arkansas football continue in that traje...
| SEC Rant|| A&M fans who think Chavis honored contract and doesn't owe buyout, check in here - AlaTiger on 2/27/15 at 5:11 pm|
I'd like to see the A&M fans go on record here who believe Chavis doesn't owe the buyout. Give reasons if you like.
Go ahead. Let it all out. I want to hear what you have to say.
| Tiger Rant|| LSU Needs To Get Off Their Heels And Be Aggressive - AlaTiger on 2/27/15 at 4:52 pm|
Womack/Saban sets LSU up and now we're on sanctions.
Chief files suit against LSU to keep from paying the money he owes.
The SEC office has no desire to represent LSU or listen to their grievances on any issue that I can remember.
LSU does everything right and the powers of the conference k...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| LSU Offers Rahshaun Smith - AlaTiger on 2/26/15 at 10:38 am|
I know that posters here know this - I saw a few comments here and there - but I didn't see a post.
He is Savion's teammate and is the top LB in the country.
What are the chances we get him, who is our main competition, and how likely is it that Savion helps us pull a couple more of these IMG ...
| Political Talk|| Brother of 2 of slain Coptic martyrs says what he would do to ISIS murderer - AlaTiger on 2/20/15 at 4:17 pm|
Pretty powerful video. A brother of 2 of the 21 beheaded Coptic Christians calls in to an Egyptian TV show and says what he would do if he met one of the members of ISIS who killed his brothers if he met him on the street.
| Political Talk|| India vs. Middle East Comparison - Why Such Little Terrorism In India? - AlaTiger on 2/20/15 at 3:04 pm|
India has around 1.2 Billion people. Around 900 million of them live in abject poverty the likes of which regular Americans cannot begin to comprehend. Yet, relatively speaking, there is little violence and little terrorism.
You had groups like the Tamil Tigers and Christian persecution in place...
| Political Talk|| Why Is Carly Fiorina Running for President? - AlaTiger on 2/20/15 at 2:29 pm|
I am reading about her considering a run. What has she done that would position her for a run for president? Hewlett Packard CEO from 1999-2005 and a failed CA senate bid in 2010? I have heard her speak a few times and she is not an effective communicator and she comes off as though her main concern...
| Political Talk|| Why Aren't We Able to Wipe ISIS Out By Air? - AlaTiger on 2/18/15 at 7:30 pm|
I don't think we can, by the way. I am just wondering what makes it so difficult to limit these guys by the air. They are in the desert and there is no follage for cover, unlike Vietnam. Is it becaus we do not have boots on the ground to provide human intel?
Just thinking about the Marine base wi...
| Political Talk|| Obama's Speech Just Now At the Conference. Wow. - AlaTiger on 2/18/15 at 4:23 pm|
If you didn't hear it, you will. It just ended a few minutes ago.
He says we need to understand the grievances of those attracted to extremism, this has NOTHING to do with religion, and that the best way to combat ISIS is to give economic and education opportunities to the poor ar...
| Tiger Rant|| Terrible Outside Shooting - AlaTiger on 2/17/15 at 11:48 pm|
This team isn't going far anyway in the tournament because as soon as they have to rely on outside shooting, the offense just falls apart. We have the inside game, but without a complimentary outside game, it is too easy to stop LSU's offense.
The last 5 minutes of close games is when everything...
| Movie/TV Board|| Jupiter Ascending - AlaTiger on 2/15/15 at 5:06 pm|
Probably the worst big budget sci-fi movie that I've ever seen. Truly laughable.
The Wachowskis need to stop making movies. They spend $175 million on it and it was complete trash. So very bad.
Mila Kunis was terrible. The plot was horrible. I don't even know what to say. Just bad....
| Political Talk|| ISIS Beheads 21 Egyptian Copts In Libya - AlaTiger on 2/15/15 at 2:51 pm|
Apparently, ISIS is making heavy inroads in Libya now. The Libyan revolution is another failed Obama-Clinton legacy.

| Tiger Rant|| Can We Go Ahead and Agree That This Is an NCAA Tourney Team Already? - AlaTiger on 2/14/15 at 4:43 pm|
I keep seeing that debated here and there. At 18-7, this team is IN as of right now. Yeah, if they inexplicably lose the rest of their games, they won't make it. But, they are going to make it.
Now, we're just playing for seedng. The selection committee will not keep this team out. ...
| Political Talk|| Sharyl Attkisson on Astro-Turf, Propoganda, Media Manipulation - Ted Talk - AlaTiger on 2/10/15 at 1:25 pm|
She does a great job of showing how the Media manipulates messages and works or big business. Many of the "non-profits" that exist are just fronts for corporations.
A lot of what she is saying reminds me of how AGW gained acceptance as well as SSM. ...
| Music Board|| Jeff Buckley - AlaTiger on 2/9/15 at 10:22 pm|
Spent part of the evening listening to a lot of his stuff again. He was unbelievable. I didn't know about him when he was alive and after his death, heard "Hallelujah" like everyone else. That is a great song, but his voice is what makes it.
Then, you listen to the rest of his stuff like "Lilac W...
| Political Talk|| Christian Crusades Were In Response to 400 Years of Muslim Aggression: T/F - AlaTiger on 2/5/15 at 5:51 pm|
What do you think?
The answer is TRUE.
Everyone bringing up the Crusades and leaving out what happened the previous 400 is historically ignorant.
Istanbul - used to be Constantinople in Turkey.
All of North Africa.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Roquan Smith - AlaTiger on 2/4/15 at 10:18 pm|
Just saw on the SEC Rant that he is reopening his recruitment. Any chance that LSU can get in on it? Top 100 OLB from Georgia.
Steele/Orgeron and NO LBs in this class? Seems like he'd be willing to give us a look.
Or, is that impossible?...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| LSU #22 in Recruiting Spending Nationally - AlaTiger on 2/4/15 at 11:51 am|
[quote]The $577,442 LSU spent that season ranked No. 8 in the SEC and is below the five-year average of $582,000. Tennessee averaged $1.3 million for the highest among schools. LSU's 2012-13 figure represented a 35 percent increase from 2009, the first year of the study.[/quote]
