Another moral hazard of government bailouts of big businesses--GM - I B Freeman
Seems as Obama showered GM with cash to protect union jobs he was stiffing victims of GM's shoddy automobile quality. A Federal judge ruled yesterday that people injured by faulty ignition switches prior to GM's bankruptcy could not seek compensation from the company. Now whether or not GM wo...

Nothing would do more for income equality than privatizing Social Security - I B Freeman
It is really cruel to be taking 15% of working people's money and letting politicians decide what their retirement will be. If instead those workers were forced or allowed to save that money they would amass estates that are being denied their families under our current socialist system. Why d...

Nobody really expected the man who has benefitted from hundreds of thousands of dollars in Louisiana film industry welfare to endorse someone else did they???

Do you guys think we need a Department of Insurance? a huge Department of Agriculture? separate higher ed bureaucracies? ect. ect. I don't hear any candidates or any leges calling for ending these things that look to me to be low hanging fruit. They all seem to want to raise taxes and preserve...

I'd vote for 84 year old Mike Foster for governor today before anyone running - I B Freeman
He was really a good governor. I wish he had been governor during Katrina. His business experience made the difference. He is a no nonsense, straight talking, "get things done" man. We need another such candidate. I remember he got into the general election having spent something like $300...

Do you want a governor that is open to raising the job killing minimum wage?? - I B Freeman
Minimum wage laws hurt the poor and prevent many unemployed from getting work. Why a politician favors telling the unemployed they can't offer their services for less than minimum wage is beyond me. JBE favors raising the minimum wage in Louisiana. In his mind I am sure he see this as somethin...

Rand just called for a balanced budget amendment--everyone should vote for him - I B Freeman
That one act would go further to save lives, limit corruption and reduce government than any other single act any politician is talking about. Jerry Brown ran on the issue in 80. Reagan campaigned for it and but for Tip O'Neil the amendment would have gone to the states. Failing to pass the b...

"The Good Wife" takes on bakers and gay cakes--coincidence??? can't be - I B Freeman

Should Jewish bakeries be forced to cater Islamic weddings? - I B Freeman
Nazi conventions? Where does this end? Should we have a government agency to investigate who businesses sell too and who they don't? Why I wonder would a gay couple want a caterer who does not like gays to cater their wedding?? I can't believe there is much demand for that....

Pitcher management--middle relief - I B Freeman
I am puzzled why CPM yanks pitchers sometimes that are cruising. Newman seemed "on" today for example. He yanked him after two. He hadn't given up any runs and had struck out 3. It seems we have to pitch some of the guys too often as if they are closers. ...

Poll for BigJim--do you favor raising taxes to keep film tax subsidies in place? - I B Freeman
If taxes are not raised or services cut there is no way we can pay out the $300 million we will likely need to subsidize film makers this year. Do you favor the film makers over the taxpayers and citizens? BigJim says people do favor film makers. What say you?...
