re: Scott Adams readers, canyou please explain the "woman card" linguistic killshot? - N.O. via West-Cal
I've been slow to appreciate Trump's appeal and even slower to grasp the extent of his popularity, so I suppose I could be missing here, too. But I am bemused by the nonchalance with which Trump supporters seem to brush off the demographic challenges Trump will face in a general election. He and his...

re: The thread where I make a good-natured appeal to political pragmatism... - N.O. via West-Cal
Corporate Tiger: You're pretty much right there with me, and I was trying to stretch to come up with some policy issues where I could see Trump being better than HRC. I tried to distinguish between trade and business regulation - because Trump is downright scary on trade - but understand that I c...

re: The thread where I make a good-natured appeal to political pragmatism... - N.O. via West-Cal
As always, good stuff from LSUpimp, but might His Pimpness be dodging an important question? The question being, is Donald Trump really better for the country than Hillary Clinton? On trade? On limited government? On foreign policy? I fully agree with you that this is mostly a cultural reset. But...

re: Looks like Trump is the nominee - so I will vote for 3rd party. - N.O. via West-Cal
"We nominated the only buffoon in the race - and a certain loser to HRC. In fact the only person (other than Carson) that she could have beat." I tend to agree, but even the second place guy, Cruz, would struggle against Hillary. Although fine to most conservatives, Cruz does not relate well to l...

re: Looks like Trump is the nominee - so I will vote for 3rd party. - N.O. via West-Cal
CB58: I am as stunned as you are by what played out after seeing the list of conservative candidates, of varying stripes, who comprised the GOP field. A number of them had executive experience: Christie, Bush, Walker, Kasich. You had Fiorina, a extremely sharp woman from the world of business, an...

re: Decided to give CNN a chance instead of Fox News - N.O. via West-Cal
"And they have a much greater variety of programming. Fox "news" is essentially just Fox "politics." CNN has had a number of good, original travel, history, and cultural shows over the last several years." I generally watch CNN but have started to watch Fox more lately, and the reason is that, wh...

re: So why is A&E doing a remake of a book that was a complete lie? - N.O. via West-Cal
Your memory is good according to Wiki: "Later, while fetching wood outside his village to make a drum for his younger brother, Kunta is captured by black collaborators under the direction of white men." More from Wiki: Author and historian Steven Mintz wrote: "Many Americans, influenced by ...

re: So why is A&E doing a remake of a book that was a complete lie? - N.O. via West-Cal
"Google the term "historical fiction" or "historical dramatization" or "historical drama." I hear ya. But the real problem with Roots is that Haley sold his book as something other fiction, when that's all it was. And then you had the film version (not sure about the book) showing things that ar...

re: Is anyone else warming up to guaranteed basic incomes? - N.O. via West-Cal
"the Earned Income Tax Credit is a form of GAI. It's all an incentive to not work and let those who do work pay your way ." I agree that the EIT is a form of guaranteed income, but it's actually incentive to work. Whether the EIT is good policy is one thing, but it results in more money going to ...

re: JBE is trying to sneak a major increase in income taxes by us - N.O. via West-Cal
"Unfortunately, this has as much to do with the legislature as with JBE." Not really. Leadership in our state almost always comes from the governor. You're not going to get it from the legislative branch. The best we can realistically hope for is for the legislators to blunt JBE's impact....

We reap what we sow. None of this is surprising. I can't stand Vitter and looked hard at voting for JBE but just saw a tax and spend Democrat who is conservative on guns (which I care little about, especially in LA where little is to be done) and abortion (which I care little about and which is larg...

re: When did the "no tariffs" become the new conservative defaut position on trade? - N.O. via West-Cal
A quick scan of the first couple of pages reveals that many of the caveats have been provided; most conservatives are OK with tariffs but only if targeted, low levels, and used sparingly (especially if severe). Few are "pure" free traders. But to provide a relatively straightforward answer to your ...

re: LSU 3rd lowest attendance for Spring Game. What needs to be done? - N.O. via West-Cal
"Night game." I don't think anything needs to be done at all. It's a practice for goodness sake. But if you wanted to devote all the resources in terms of police, parking, etc. that you do to a home game: night game with full promotion - maybe even a concert - make it an event. But why?...

re: Progressive Nebraska? Cornhuskers move to change asset forfeiture laws. - N.O. via West-Cal
"Asset forfeiture would continue to exist as an option only when a person has been convicted of a crime." I used to be better versed in this area as it was sort of a hobby of mine even though not connected to any work I do, but this law would have to represent progress so long as this is true: ...
