re: Killing Americans... why Bobby Jindal needs to stop his lies regarding Medicaid - dinosaur
Please explain how we will pay for it once the federal government's "free trial" period expires and more of the cost is shifted to the state? This is exactly what they have done with regular Medicare. The problem is that once people get on medicare, they almost never get off before they die....

re: Holder claims " vast amounts" of discretion in enforcing federal laws - dinosaur
The problem with discretion in "enforcing" the law is that the person making the decision can be arbitrary, and we must rely on that person to trustworthy and honest. The mere fact that there is discretion does not excuse abuse of that discretion. A decision to not act should be based on a clearly...

re: interesting article about the difficulty of hiring ... - dinosaur
Upvote on that. I was looking for office help a while back. I got 22 resumes (a lot for a small town). Three could not spell the name of their high school. When we called the better looking applications, one of those showed up and said she only applied because the unemployment person said she ...

re: Creative threats your parents came up with - dinosaur
Sounds like my house. My dad was a WWII vet and a no nonsense type. I caught the back of his hand quite a few times, a few times a belt, and once when I was older and smarted off a closed fist. Knocked me down in one lick. My grandmother used to play pick me a switch and liked the little ones t...

re: Baseball: LSU 2 vs Tulane 3 - Final (11) - 98.1 FM - dinosaur
Baseball is a strange game. Sometimes everything works right and a team plays a long stretch better than it really should. Sometimes a good team play poorly for a long stretch but that is not always a "slump". I see a lot of mental errors in the last few games. Bad base running, poor at bats, s...

re: The latest from the EBRPSS fiasco-school board meeting last night - dinosaur
Seriously, man, you need to tone down the attacks. You sound like a close relative of a school board member or something. And the self reported v whistle blower argument is only an attempt to make someone look they are on top of things. But if the board or the superintendent knew this was happen...

re: The latest from the EBRPSS fiasco-school board meeting last night - dinosaur
I think that someone missed the point of your postings. You pointed out that the board president essentially said that we need to get to the bottom of this and that you think a reputable firm should do a more extensive review. I think that we would all agree to that. But I think some people here ...

re: The Medal of Honor is a participation trophy now - dinosaur
I didn't read this entire thread but I think you are missing the point. No one is saying that these men didn't do some heroic things. But to go back and choose to upgrade the decoration not based on an actual review of what happened but based on "minority" status is nothing but political pandering...

re: Crimea is about to secede from Ukraine (frigging spelling) - dinosaur
While I agree with the intent, I don't think we have any sort of military force available that can face the Russians right on the Russian border. Even if we did have a strong enough military, which we probably no longer have, we would require a great deal of cooperation and assistance from the Eu...

re: Crimea is about to secede from Ukraine (frigging spelling) - dinosaur
email I got, edited to fit character limitations: I came here in 2005 on a contract to help build a professional corps of NCOs for the Ukrainian Army. It was a dismal failure. The military budget couldn't support building the kind of NCO corps the US Army has. Ukraine just doesn't have the budg...

re: Crimea is about to secede from Ukraine (frigging spelling) - dinosaur
I pretty much agree with what you have been posting on this. I tend to think that this will probably result in some sort of split of that country and there isn't much the USA can do about it. I get a lot of emails from ex-military people I know and I got one talking about the situation there. I a...

re: Abolishing Private Schools - dinosaur
Look, you can have all the confidence in the world. Some people just can't learn as well as some other people and some people just don't give a damn. I do not believe that anyone, no matter how good, can reach every student. Our public schools are not getting the job done, in that far too ma...

re: Abolishing Private Schools - dinosaur
My wife is a 40 year teacher, with 33 years in inner city public schools. She is highly qualified and was a teacher of the year choice. I have spent 40 years talking about education with her and watching both our local public schools and the local private schools. If you are as good as you claim...

re: is the following picture true? - dinosaur
Upvoted. The "corporate welfare" idea works well on people who don't stop to ask what it means. This isn't a part of the pie chart. It is nice and vague and can be stretched to mean nearly anything and simply gets left leaning anti-business people something to throw at fiscal conservatives. And ...
