re: Jefferson Parish officials are indeed worried about their future tax base. - cahoots
[quote]Ya New Orleans is hodge podge (go figure) walkable like around a Freret and Magazine etc. But I guess when you are comparing it to Jefferson it looks like a coffee shop is in your kitchen.[/quote] Most of New Orleans is a few degrees more walkable than J.P. even though it's far from ideal...

re: How to Live on Minimum Wage and Escape "Poverty" - cahoots
This thread makes little sense. Sure, you can survive with a job paying around minimum wage. It's just that life is very [i]fragile[/i] at that point. Your car can't break down. You can't fail that $1,000 class you're taking at UNO, even though you work 50 hours a week. Your boss can't cut your ...

[quote]It must also chap your arse that he's not even going to get a honeymoon period that every other executive typically gets. He will be fought against, obstructed, obfuscated, and sabotaged.

re: JBE Budget Plan is out! - cahoots
[quote]$10 says we get less revenue than any of the last few years with all these new taxes. [/quote] Man, you're really going out on a limb there. Are you trying to tell me that a few small tax increases are not going to make up for the 30000000000000% drop in oil?...

re: JBE's Fiscal Ideas - cahoots
[quote]Raising revenue is pointless if for every dollar you raise you also increase spending by a dollar. We need a someone who will look at stream-lining and making gov't more efficient. Right now, we have a system that rewards wasting money and penalizes saving money.[/quote] This seems...

re: I don't understand the GOP and Republican base on guns - cahoots
[quote]Simply owning a gun doesn't hurt anyone in an absolute sense. [/quote] Right, and simply selling a gun to a 5 year old doesn't hurt anyone in an absolute sense, either. However, it's probably not a good idea. The background checks are common sense and a mild inconvenience. Republicans...

re: JBE supports NOLA/BR rail. Will it happen? - cahoots
[quote] If it's a benefit that is more lucrative than what you'd get in the private sector then that's a subsidy. The government will be paying to upgrade a private conpany's infrastructure and the private company shares NONE of the risk of the commuter rail fails. [/quote] My point is that it ...

re: JBE supports NOLA/BR rail. Will it happen? - cahoots
[quote] So basically this is a subsidy for a private railroad company that competes with other railroad companies. [/quote] It’s different because Amtrak pays fees to the railroads for use of their tracks to cover repair/maintenance. In this case, it’s sort of like a up-front payment for capit...
