| Political Talk|| I am a liberal, and I despise Islam - Jamie Howard on 4/20/13 at 12:21 am|
As an atheist, how many people have to die before we realize that Islam is a fundamentally violent religion?...

| Political Talk|| What do you know the least about? - Jamie Howard on 11/9/12 at 9:01 am|
We have our share of experts on here. Some, it seems, know everything about everything. But I'm here to bring some humility.
Let's post the current event you know the LEAST about, and then someone can post links that maybe provide a good overview, or even a detailed analysis.
I'll start: T...
| Political Talk|| Will evangelicals have to literally die off... - Jamie Howard on 11/7/12 at 7:20 pm|
Before the GOP can regain its sanity?
I mean, they believe their hate filled (ironic) garbage down to their core. Can they just turn it off to win elections?...
| Political Talk|| Question about government leeches - Jamie Howard on 11/7/12 at 4:39 pm|
Welfare queens exist. No doubt. But do they turn out in record numbers to vote? Are they the ones that won this election?
The consensus on this board is that "People love their free shit", but do we actually know how many "leeches" voted, and if it was enough to put Obama over the top?
| Political Talk|| Libertarians should be thrilled today - Jamie Howard on 11/7/12 at 9:02 am|
Your party is about to get a huge boost. Then, in 2016, we can have an honest debate between the role and size of government, while social issues play a small role in the election.
A libertarian may not get the nom in 2016, but I guarantee the republican candidate will resemble Ron Paul more t...
| Political Talk|| Dr. Kevorkian - Jamie Howard on 9/3/12 at 8:52 pm|
What says the Poliboard? Hero? Devil? Meh?...

Pretty much a done deal. I hear Terry is already looking at houses....
| Political Talk|| North Louisiana vs South Louisiana public schools - Jamie Howard on 7/16/12 at 6:18 pm|
Generally speaking, north Louisiana pub schools are much better. In fact, there are not that many private schools north of alexandria, period. Why? What can BR and Nola do to improve? Should they?
| Political Talk|| New Customer Base - Jamie Howard on 6/28/12 at 3:18 pm|
Much like mandated car insurance, will we see health insurance companies create a bare-bones, low cost, low benefit product now, maybe equal to or less than the tax penalty, that will generate a truckload for them?
I'm sure they are already being designed, but do you think they can make the econo...
| Political Talk|| Those pesky Democrats are ruining the domestic natural gas industry!!!! - Jamie Howard on 3/6/12 at 3:04 pm|
Wait. Scratch that.
[quote]A growing alliance between Democratic leaders and the natural gas industry looks like it's bearing fruit for both sides, with Democrats backing a measure that could mean billions in profits for their industry.[/quote]
Again, for all of those in the bubble, both the ...
| Political Talk|| 2nd term best/worst case scenarios - Jamie Howard on 2/14/12 at 11:54 am|
Looking like Obama is going to win this, if the economy continues is slow improvement, mostly due to the weak GOP field.
So, what are this board's predictions for how the country will look in 2016? Will the economy improve dramatically? Not at all? Will all freedom be gone? What are your bes...
| Political Talk|| Remember the gay soldier that got booed - Jamie Howard on 1/20/12 at 3:48 pm|
at a Republican debate a few months back? How many on here would boo a soldier because he was gay?
Also, if I remember right, that gay soldier was freaking huge and could absolutely kick the arse of everyone on this board. ...
| Political Talk|| Tim Tebow - Jamie Howard on 1/6/12 at 4:00 pm|
This is more of a religious discussion so I'm keeping it on the Poliboard.
I don't subscribe to any religion, but I couldn't care less that Tim Tebow is really devout and displays it. I can also say that I don't know if I have heard of anyone who is truly up in arms about it. So, where is the c...
| Political Talk|| David Duke - Jamie Howard on 1/6/12 at 3:33 pm|
I am too young to remember the Edwards/Roemer/Duke election clearly, but I do remember feeling embarassed even at a young age that Louisiana was a laughing stock, with a joke on SNL about it, to boot.
Did anyone on here vote for David Duke?...
| Political Talk|| Political Figures as Simpsons Characters - Jamie Howard on 12/20/11 at 4:38 pm|
Who ya got?
For me Eric Cantor reminds me of Frank Grimes, "Grimey". Which made me wonder if anyone else had any.
| Political Talk|| What other First Ladies did you hate? - Jamie Howard on 12/13/11 at 8:52 am|
Good God, a lot of people on here really hate Michelle Obama. Which is pretty amazing to me. Hating the First Lady, or letting anything they do or say get you upset.
Which other First Ladies got the poli-board's panties in a wad?...

Who would it be? They don't have to have been a politician....
| Political Talk|| Rick Perry's new TV ad - Jamie Howard on 12/8/11 at 9:27 am|
Or maybe it isn't new. I saw it just now for the first time, anyway.
Actually includes this line "You know, it's sad when gays can serve in the military but our children can't celebrate Christmas at school."
This is the TV version of trolling. Does anyone agree with this point or think that ...
| Political Talk|| The Great Depression - Jamie Howard on 12/7/11 at 9:41 am|
In the poli-board's opinion:
What got us into it?
What got us out of it?
What was done correctly by the government and what could have been done differently?
Is it hindsight that provides the clarity of your opinions, or should it have been obvious at the time?
How did we (or did we)...
| Political Talk|| Lincoln - Jamie Howard on 12/2/11 at 11:08 am|
I saw the thread about "Least Favorite President" and it made me think of this question. I didn't want to hijack the thread.
99% of the people on this board despise Obama. That's a given. I would say that probably 80% of this board hates FDR.
I am new to this board (and since I joined, h...

How do rich people (many of whom I assume to be Christian) rationalize this one away? Must be some pretty big needles out there...
| Political Talk|| The Public Option - Jamie Howard on 12/1/11 at 1:44 pm|
Could someone explain to me why this is such a horrible idea? Don't we already do this in many other aspects of our lives?
If I want to ship something, I can chose Fedex/UPS, or the post office if I can't afford it.
If I want to send my kid to private school, I can, but I can also send him...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Who will be the immediate contributors from the Class of 2012? - Jamie Howard on 10/27/11 at 9:29 am|
I think we all knew Freak and Landry would come in and play. ODB was a nice surprise that no one really saw coming this quickly, since we first found out how good he was during camp.
Who will be the next group to play immediately and make significant contributions from c/o 2012? ...
