| O-T Lounge|| Brilliant commentary on the status of the CATS system - hawkster on 12/12/14 at 10:19 am|
WBRZ news managed to capture some insightful public comments on what CATS has done with their new tax revenue.
Sorry for the obnoxious ad at the start of the video. But then skip to 0:50, 1:20 and 1:35 for the best parts of the story. Apparently the bus system "have gone from worse to worse-ER"...

Can one of you artists please place this formula in chalk on the blackboard:
9 + 2 - 2 = 11
Thank you very much in advance. ...
| Fark Board|| Can someone please create a gif of this face popping up onto this background? - hawkster on 3/17/14 at 11:10 am|
Maybe just leaning into the scene?
Or one of that face peeping into the window?
Thanks in advance.
Even a still of the that face peeping in the window would be appreciated!
| Political Talk|| Should the "New Urbanists" support St. George? - hawkster on 1/17/14 at 4:15 pm|
I'm referring to those who believe that walking communities, vibrant downtowns, bike lanes, public transportation, town squares, etc. are the answers for modern living.
Wouldn't they be able to advance their social and political causes more successfully if Baton Rouge isolated its own city gove...

And how many other liberal programs, communities, politicians and special interests will be included in the windfall of federal spending he'll propose?
Republicans who oppose the obvious, exploitative and opportunistic political payoffs that will be included in the relief package need to brace fo...

| Political Talk|| ACLU and Catholic Church in politics - hawkster on 2/5/13 at 2:19 pm|
I thought the ACLU supported separation of church and state. Why haven't they chimed in to protest the catholic bishops' attempted interference in the legal system through coercion of the catholic governor?
Shouldn't the ACLU urge the governor to ignore religious influence in the carrying out ...
| Political Talk|| Why no pictures of the Biden-Landrieu love fest? - hawkster on 1/27/13 at 12:03 pm|
It's a shame no one remembered to bring a camera to the Biden fundraiser for Landrieu. I know that Crazy Joe and Chubby Mary aren't camera-shy. I guess it's just a bizarre coincidence that their were so few visual recordings of their shared affection for each other's statesmanship.

| Political Talk|| Why should republicans care about Colin Powell's opinion on anything? - hawkster on 1/13/13 at 7:39 pm|
Powell is making a big deal of endorsing Hagel for Secretary of Defense and attacking GOP for opposing him.
Regardless of Powell's service in earlier administrations, he has openly backed Obama in the last two presidential elections, yet still claims that he's a republican. That's complete bul...
| Political Talk|| Is anyone paying their CATS property tax under protest? - hawkster on 12/20/12 at 9:48 am|
Here's an interesting article from the Advocate explaining that you can keep Capital Area Transit System (CATS) from spending your property tax payment unless and until they can successfully defend the lawsuit on the tax's legality.

| Political Talk|| When else should Obama's "regardless of the politics" apply? - hawkster on 12/16/12 at 1:16 pm|
Obama worshippers claim that his "regardless of the politics" phrase in the Connecticut Massacre speech is a noble and presidential sentiment. They deny that it was an opportunistic cheap shot at Republicans and gun control, and claim it was some kind of ultra-responsible nonpartisan challenge.

Can't wait for this one. Pipeline explosions, alligator swarms, oil well blowouts, rivers swallowed up, huge new inland seas, just think of all the possibilities waiting to be served up by the brilliant minds at SyFy. ...
| O-T Lounge|| State police not capable of traffic control - hawkster on 7/29/12 at 11:10 pm|
90 minutes to travel 13 miles on I12 at Robert, LA. Because State Police cannot find an efficient way to direct a traffic merger. (I know it's just beneath them and their heroic mission.). Oh yeah, I'm mad. ...

Oregon State has fired (actually just not renewed contract) of highly acclaimed professor who is also a global warming skeptic. Striking similarities to the Van Heerden case at LSU.
