re: Justice Scalia: The death penalty deters crime. Experts: No, it doesn’t - dinosaur
How about those where we are certain? My wife's two old maid aunts were brutally murdered. The killer had their blood all over his clothes when he was found. He confessed. Also killed two other people. He was convicted twice and given the death penalty twice, but was later found to be too stup...

re: What will cause the pendulum to swing back? - dinosaur
I tend to agree with you, except that the time frame could be shorter than 10 years. I fear that a financial collapse is almost certain and that the backlash against any liberal type will result in a fascist type government, with scary implications for those considered (right or wrong) to have been...

re: What's so terrible about "redistributing wealth?" - dinosaur
In my own, although sometimes misguided opinion, redistributing wealth is a new code phrase to justify taking from the working people and giving to the non-working people. One of the reasons we are getting a wealth gap in our nation is that so many don't have any wealth at all because they make no ...

re: LSU Baseball things we can stop debating - dinosaur
He should probably have been lead off all season. He doesn't strike out much, he runs bases very well and that spot brings him to bat more often. While I always thought third was for your best overall hitter, and he probably fits that spot also, I think he would have been more valuable this year ...

re: Anyone else get screwed by Obama's little Flood Insurance farce? - dinosaur
No, I am saying that the change in policy should be phased in gradually for those people who made decisions relying on the government program to remain essentially the same. My issue was that the decision seems to have been to increase the rate to a more sound amount, depending on claims, in a shor...

re: Anyone else get screwed by Obama's little Flood Insurance farce? - dinosaur
I disagree. The government essentially changed the rules because it realized that it was paying out too much. Were there abuses? Of course. But I do feel bad for those people caught in the rate increase. Some of them will likely lose their homes over this....

re: Anyone else get screwed by Obama's little Flood Insurance farce? - dinosaur
A lot of people who are in this situation bought or built when their property was NOT in a flood zone. FEMA re-evaluated the situation after the huge number and amounts of flood claims and changed flood zone classifications for a lot of south Louisiana. And yes, some homes were built in flood zone...

re: Anyone else get screwed by Obama's little Flood Insurance farce? - dinosaur
Flood Insurance is required by federal law if you have a federally related mortgage loan and you are in what we commonly call a flood zone. If you have a mortgage loan with a bank that has FDIC coverage, that is a federally related loan. So the Federal government does require you to have flood ins...

re: This was supposed to be a rebuilding year for USL - dinosaur
I graduated from both schools although I have always favored LSU in sports. I would have liked to see them meet in Omaha rather than Baton Rouge, just so that I could say Louisiana had two teams there. I have some issues about how the NCAA sets up regional play, but that is another topic. But U...

re: LSU's Lazy River makes Fox News - dinosaur
I don't know if all the bad pub is coming from Alexander. I head someone from the faculty senate complaining about the cost of the lazy river deal saying that the money should be used to prop up programs that are being cut. Tenure, you see. A tenured professor can make negative and misleading co...

re: The government is God! - dinosaur
I would vote for much less government. I don't care how much God you have, so long as you don't expect me to conform to your belief system. I believe that a substantial portion of the residents here (our nation is no longer about citizens, we seem to treat non-citizens better than citizens at ti...

re: PT Board's Opinion?:Special Needs Student Told To Remove His Varsity Letter - dinosaur
This is a good example of a unique situation that would probably serve to open the door to other kids, who have a different life situation, but want that varsity letter. I wonder how many of the posters here who say let the kid's mom buy a letter would complain about participation awards given to ...

re: So you think LSU is a poor FT shooting team - dinosaur
This was a talented team but a team that got into a number of close games and lost a lot of those. The team lacked that one guard who could take the ball at the end of the game, under pressure, stay calm and make a high percentage of his free throws. The team had guards with above average ability...

re: Society's backlash and shaming of those who utter taboo words - dinosaur
I don't think anyone in this thread tried to say that what was said was not stupid, ignorant, offensive and bigoted. The idea being discussed was whether those words justified basically destroying the lives of the idiots who said them. I assume that your response is saying that these words were ...

re: Society's backlash and shaming of those who utter taboo words - dinosaur
I agree with you, although a scary percentage of people posting here seem to believe otherwise. When we demand major social and economic sanctions for an individual who says something with which we do not agree, we are just as, if not more, guilty as they are. It seems that we have lost the idea o...
