re: Louisiana State Senate needs $163 million to balance budget. - BigJim
[quote]Jim, it sounds like a gunat scam to me. We'd refuse to honor the credit; thus balancing the budget and at the same time create a huge bonanza for the trial lawyers who would line up to sue the state. By the time they'd settle the case all the pols today would be term limited and resti...

re: Louisiana State Senate needs $163 million to balance budget. - BigJim
[quote]The question may be can the state limit redemptions and use to X dollars per year regardless of outstanding credits? That would not void the credit. It would merely make the timing of it's redemption questionable. Interesting[/quote] I really think that is the wrong way to go. It is t...

re: Louisiana State Senate needs $163 million to balance budget. - BigJim
[quote]That's it? I mean to hear all the doom and gloomers here I thought the deficit was billions if not trillions of dollars cause of Oh My God, Jindal![/quote] Well that is due to about $600m+ in revenue increases. And another ~$400m in one time money. They will probably raise another $2...

re: It seems Fox News has rolled out the ISIS war propaganda machine. - BigJim
It's not just Fox. This is a pattern with media in general. They take some horrible place in the world (Iraq, Sudan, whatever) and post story after story about how horrible it is. That is followed by round after round of talking heads who decry "WHY AREN'T WE DOING SOMETHING!!!!!" ...

re: Les Miles (and Payton) "hosts" at Jindal fund-raiser: CONFLICT OF INTEREST? - BigJim
[quote]Expenses rise each year and LSU has seen enrollment increases as well. So if LSU's baseline budget is X, additional expenses is Y, and added enrollment costs is Z and the legislature only approves XZ and not XYZ, there's going to have to be a cut somewhere.[/quote] Right, probably reti...

re: What if the church regularly preached against the sins of gluttony and sloth? - BigJim
[quote]Moreover, what if Christians as a whole attacked overeating and obesity as vehemently as they do homosexuality? I ask because my parents were telling me how their pastor did a sermon several weeks ago on these issues and the hypocrisy in churches as a whole for not being bold enough to ad...

re: Taxpayers spend $65 million subsidizing the operation of the Super Dome and SKC - BigJim
[quote] 1. It allowed the state to consolidate its offices in NOLA. 2. It ended the almost $20million dollar a year payment to Benson to keep the Saints. 3. It might be costing the state an extra $4 million/yr for office space but it allows us to have a NFL team and an NBA team. That keeps NOLA...
