re: Repeal Louisiana's balanced budget requirement. - I B Freeman
Got to be a top ten bad idea post on TD. First off LSU IS NOT SPENDING LESS MONEY than they were in 2009. They have made up the cuts in state subsidies through self generated funds. LSU has a $475 million budget this year. They have actually budgeted $21 million in more in revenues than in 2...

re: IRS defends paying refunds to illegals who never filed taxes - I B Freeman
They can file with their fake SS number and get the refund. THIS is a big reason for identifying these people, giving them green cards and getting them on the tax rolls. ALSO this is a VERY good example of why a national sales tax would be preferable to the income tax....

[quote]What about 2012 or 13? [/quote] I had that number and had a link to it but I can't put my hands on it. It was over $200 million and some estimate that this year it could hit $300 million. $300 million is the "cap" the film industry reformers want. :lol: BTW that is equal to 11% of t...

[quote]f I was H&R block or some similar mass service tax return group, I would have a special division to go find these immigrants get them their $9k and then take $1k off the top (or 10% ~$900). The barrier before is that illegals didn't want to file because they might get deported. With this off ...

re: The Advocate: Scandals, criticism erupt around Louisiana's film credit program - I B Freeman
Always ignored by these "studies" are the opportunity cost of the money. The Saints are a great example. A great deal of the spending they take credit for is spending by local citizens. Unless the savings rate is going to change for the people if the Saints leave then the money will be spent w...

re: thinking about refinancing. Should I pay off and stop using credit cards? - I B Freeman
If you are paying PMI quit playing games with the credit cards and pay down your mortgage to get rid of PMI. That is money out the window. These stupid reward cards are a trap. Settle on a good cash back card---I like the 2% cash back on every purchase from AMEX and Fidelity Investments and ne...

re: There is more to worry about Common Core than usually discussed - I B Freeman
I think the government should get out of education and simply give the money they have been spending to all of us in the form of education vouchers and let us decide how to educate our children. That said---I think it would be great if our kids would learn math the way common core proposes. ...

re: The Advocate: Scandals, criticism erupt around Louisiana's film credit program - I B Freeman
Only for the dense is this issue hard to grasp. Louisiana taxpayers are getting screwed by the film industry. BugAC calls facts "biased sources." He can't add and subtract. No need to debate it. If you can't understand giving 30%+ of an industry's expenses to the industry from taxpayers is...

re: bose QC25 headphones--worth it for a long flight?? - I B Freeman
I bought the QC25s. They are great. Best Buy did have a pair of Samsung that were a little more expensive and were bluetooth capable that seem pretty good. Only trouble was that it was a rechargeable device and I think I would rather the battery operated. It's easy to carry an extra battery but n...
