re: Post your voting record for the president since you've been able to vote. - dinosaur
You and I cancelled each other out. Nixon in 72 and R's ever since. Would have voted D in 68 but I was too young. Terrified of the draft and Vietnam in late 60's, would have voted against the war....

re: The Advocate finally asks the question: Too many universities in La? - dinosaur
A good example of hard choices caused by foolish decisions made in the past, but I would start by getting rid of graduate programs, especially at the smaller schools, closing SUNO, and combining places like Tech, ULM, and Grambling, mainly getting rid of non-teaching (and including athletic) positio...

re: Leonardo DiCaprio blasts the oil industry’s ‘corporate greed’ - dinosaur
Wow. No generalizations there. And because you agree with him, people who disagree are "clueless wonders". I have a few suggestions for you: Give away your car. Turn off your electricity. Put away your computer. All of those are and depend upon products from corporations run by "sociopaths"....

re: Leonardo DiCaprio blasts the oil industry’s ‘corporate greed’ - dinosaur
You hit the nail on the head. Why is it that because someone is good at one thing, and usually an entertainment type thing, the public believes that they become experts on everything else? If he was just some guy off the street, who would give a damn what he thought about anything? Just another ...

re: The twisted values of the POTUS - dinosaur
Just to be clear, from your statement I assume you are saying that abortion is OK and so the death penalty should also be OK? Is there really no distinction between the two? I fully understand that you may not agree with my point of view, but don't give me that smug claim that I have to be eith...

re: Is anyone besides me in favor of much more liberal application of death penalty - dinosaur
The hurdles that a prosecution has to go through today on a death penalty case makes the chance of making a mistake virtually nil. For example, there was DNA all over the place in the Derrick Todd Lee case. Do you think his conviction and sentence is a mistake? Death penalty cases from a long ...

re: Statement from LSU counsel Bob Barton regarding Chavis contract - dinosaur
I think that there is an assumption here that the changes were not made known to Chavis, which will likely be an issue if this comes to a trial, and that the changes were material, which is up to a judge. In my opinion, Chavis's attorney is incorrect. While there is some law about fraudlent changes...

re: GAO: EPA broke the law pushing Barry's water rule agenda - dinosaur
Are you serious or are you just coming here to deflect? The issue is not the existence of the EPA, but a huge and illegal overreach to take control over even minor waterways (said to even apply to ditches on the side of a highway). The illegal lobbying for and promoting of the administration's pos...

re: Casual fans are the problem - dinosaur
No, he meant that a team filled with players that have been a system for 3 or four years or more, that have significant game experience during that period, is much more likely to put together a drive like that. LSU didn't have that this season. Is it possible that the problem is that LSU recruit...

re: When the war on terror was lost - dinosaur
If their goal was to change our way of life, to cause us to be fearful of any person of middle eastern appearance, and to make us less free, they are winning. Our government can't even articulate who or what the enemy is or even seem to say that someone or some group has declared war on us and ou...

re: Lsu football going in the tank - dinosaur
I have seen a number of coaches at LSU. I was a Miles supporter until last week. Too many mental errors, too thin at positions where you need depth, and a general inability on the part of the coaching staff to have people line up and do what needs to be done. The futility at the goal line (look...

re: Miles firing cool down - dinosaur
I am but should not be surprised at the outpouring of negative responses to people who simply question the idea that the coach must be fired immediately and by what seems to be a desire that the team lose the next two games so that the demand for termination can be somehow justified. This looks li...

re: Yikes. Scott Rabalais reporting Les is coaching for his job next 2 weeks - dinosaur
I am surprised at the speculative nature of the "news story" being the lead in the sports page. If we can be objective, we can see that the special teams have been terrible and the defensive backfield play has been poor. Defensive backs look like they did in 2008, with at least one major breakdown...

re: Rubio's comment on 'philosophy' vs. 'welders' - dinosaur
Well, while I enjoyed the discussion of philosophy majors and their job market versus welders (How many philosophers do you know? Are they in the yellow pages? Or do they pretty much all go on into other fields?) I tend to think that he was afraid to say what he really meant. If he had cited wome...

re: alabama builds their team to beat us - dinosaur
Alabama builds their defense to stop the run. Coach Saban wants to force you to be one dimensional and then attack your passing game. Coach Miles likes the power run game. Against everyone else, it works pretty well. Against a team that is built to stop the run, it doesn't work as well. To beat...

re: Delinquent Car Liability Insuance - dinosaur
My son got one today from 10 years ago. He has lived in Texas for 11 years. Problem was that I sent in the documents they requested 10 years ago but no longer have copies. Ten years is a long time to keep paperwork on something that I thought was over. I suspect this is some sort of scam, but ...

re: Bike lane controversy on Glenmore Ave in BR - dinosaur
I think that the petition to keep the bike lane has damaged the goal of making the city more bike friendly. Who will want a bike lane in front of their land if they have to go through this sort of situation in the event there are problems in the future? I would guess that there are thousands of pe...

re: This is why we are screwed, unless we start making some tough decisions - dinosaur
I have said for years that the congress will never make any meaningful cuts. Too expensive in terms of votes. But they will quietly allow inflation to decrease the value of what is being paid out, and hammer those people, deserving or not, that live on a fixed income. When the fed stops keeping inte...
