Since WWII a home has been a great investments except for those forced to sell in economic down turns like in 08 and here in 88-90.
That will not be the case the next 20 years IMHO.
First anyone can tell you houses cost a lot to own. A roof here, a broken pipe there, a cracked drive, a down t...
| Political Talk|| Sick of Obama telling everyone how great LBJ was - I B Freeman on 4/10/14 at 5:44 pm|
These idiots want people to think the civil rights act was so important--it was not--that if offsets everything LBJ did in Viet Nam.
The DOJ had the power to protect people of color against discrimination before the CRA of 64. They just did not do it.
LBJ KILLED 50000 men by usi...
| Political Talk|| BP Settlement Theory - I B Freeman on 4/10/14 at 5:17 pm|
I heard an interesting theory of BP's strategy regarding their BEL settlement and their pending fines.
This guy believes BP will do everything they can to string out the BEL claims until the spill trial is over and fines under the clean water act are levied.
They will then take their US subsi...
| Political Talk|| Controversy over film tax credits in Mississippi - I B Freeman on 4/10/14 at 3:09 pm|
Seems rational minds have a voice in Mississippi.
Mississippi has capped their total film industry welfare at $20 million---roughly 1/10th of what we give away--and the critics of the welfare are rightfully outraged.
| Political Talk|| Jindal--please!! - I B Freeman on 4/5/14 at 9:47 pm|
Seems ole Bobby is still trying to take credit for the "largest income tax cut in Louisiana history". He is of course talking about the reversal of the Stelly Plan that occurred in his first year.

May Mrs. Mellon rest in peace.
This lady gave $700,000 to John Edwards trying to get that trial lawyer, freedom robbing socialist elected President.
So when you hear Mary whine about the Ko...

In the USSR--no wait a minute.
In Communist China---no no no.
In Nazi Germany--no not quite
In the United States the federal government acting through it's EPA has tested harmful chemicals on citizens in attempts to build data to further advance power over industry through the clean air ac...

| Political Talk|| Obamacare does little to reduce the number of uninsured. - I B Freeman on 3/31/14 at 1:39 pm|
Seems very few uninsured are being insured under Landrieucare--I mean Obamacare.
From the Washington Post
[quote]t appears so, but we don't know by how much yet. We have a general sense of how many people have newly enrolled in Medicaid or stayed on their parents' health plans, but we don't kn...
| Political Talk|| News Flash!!! Jindal is thinking about running for President - I B Freeman on 3/30/14 at 10:13 pm|
I thought everyone knew this 6 years ago.
Nobody will think he is a fiscal conservative when they look at his record on film subsidies.
| Political Talk|| Nixon, historically the most important President of the last 65 years - I B Freeman on 3/30/14 at 10:35 am|
Nixon did more to change world history than any other president in the last half of the twentieth century.
Nixon to China paved the way to modern China. Imagine that--a US President central to bringing 25% of the world's population from destitute poverty under communism to the second largest econ...
| Political Talk|| Remember Jindal and Villere fought elected Paul delegates to the convention - I B Freeman on 3/26/14 at 11:44 am|
Over the years Jindal and Villere had made a bunch of state GOP rules they thought would allow them a better chance to hand pick the delegates to the National GOP convention. They made rules that said Louisiana GOP caucuses instead of the actually primary would pick the delegates to the state conve...
| Political Talk|| Supreme court women have it wrong - I B Freeman on 3/26/14 at 9:10 am|
It seems the female justices on the court contend that Hobby Lobby is not being forced to provide health insurance that covers birth control. In their mind they can simply pay the tax.
Isn't that the same as telling an individual you don't have to buy health insurance but if you don't you will g...
| Political Talk|| Who will lobby for the taxpayers? - I B Freeman on 3/22/14 at 3:22 pm|
As the legislative session kicks off special interest will spend countless hours and money trying to get the leges to give them our money.
Trouble is no one is over there lobbying to save our money.
Life is much easier for the legislator that simply agrees to give away our money. Like Pavlov'...
| Political Talk|| Moret drilled by Fannin on when will LED spending mean more revenue for state - I B Freeman on 3/18/14 at 9:27 pm|

Look nobody here loves UGA football more today than I have in the past.
I was in graduate school when Herschel was there. Never missed a home game for years. I made every home game as an undergrad even the 79 season.
I have lived in Louisiana now for 30 years and traveled to every UGA game i...

I had a guy tell me this weekend that the temperature in the river two weeks ago at Venice was 39 degrees.
Hard to believe. I did fly into St. Louis a couple of weeks ago and I was amazed at the number and size of farm ponds I saw completely frozen over. Some very large ones. St. Louis is pretty ...

Several stations are going to have EWE on their show tomorrow it seems. 99.5 for one.
Three questions for the democrat:
1) will Mary Landrieu campaign with you?
2) do you support Obama and Obamacare?
3) do you still renounce the resurrection of Jesus Christ?...

I was reading the wiki entry for Roemer a little while ago and the last sentence is:
[quote]Roemer has not yet announced on whether or not that he will run for Governor of Louisiana again in 2015 to replace Bobby Jindal.[/quote]

He was an associate of Edwards and latter turned on him accusing Edwards of all kinds of corruption. He was murdered in broad daylight on the court house steps in Shreveport.

| Political Talk|| US Drone downed by Russia in Crimea--did Congress authorize this?? - I B Freeman on 3/14/14 at 3:54 pm|
In the photo released by the Russians it seems the drone is armed.
Have we simply walked away from the Constitution? Should the military be allowed to intervene in other countries without at least a vote of Congress?

[quote]Thank you, we have already counted your vote.
The credits are an expensive boon to a handful of people 60.35% (207 votes)
Regardless of the economics, Louisiana is better off with 'Hollywood South' than without it 21.28% (73 votes)
The credits bring more benefits than costs...

In 07 when he ran I supported him rather enthusiastically. I contributed more cash to his election than I had to any other candidate ever. I worked two little community events with one of my neighbors.
We had him over to a little cookout we put together for him and it was there I first question...

Interesting the Governor wants to raid some trust funds to balance his proposed budget yet has proposed no cuts in film industry welfare.
| Political Talk|| Somebody take charge of the republicans--Obama does not dress to suit the office - I B Freeman on 3/4/14 at 11:39 am|
Shut these stupid people up.
Why criticize Obama's dress while speaking to Putin on the phone?
How petty can the critics get? It looks petty to voters too.
There are too many "ducks on the water" concerning important issues to go after Obama on than to whine about his casual attire.

It seems there is a lot of outrage about Russia in Crimea---an island basically off the Ukranian coast where the Russian fleet is stationed, and the population is mostly Russian.
Certainly the Russian have a lot of interest in what happens there. There has been quite of bit of unrest in the Ukr...
| Political Talk|| Republicans stupid to criticize Obama on the Ukraine - I B Freeman on 3/3/14 at 6:29 pm|
Nobody in the voting public cares and republicans look like fools trying to provoke Obama to action.
They should shut up and concentrate their talking points on shrinking government.
Notice how the republicans voted to increase government in the debt limit increase and the farm bill??
