re: Jefferson Parish officials are indeed worried about their future tax base. - Slippy
I really think there's a phenomenon going on around the country. Old neighborhoods are being rediscovered, and post-WWII cookie cutter suburbs are being abandoned or handed down the food chain. One of two things will happen in 25 years. Either young families will buy the homes in Jefferson P...

Jefferson Parish officials are indeed worried about their future tax base. - Slippy
[quote]Jefferson also must contend with its image as a suburban parish competing with the metropolitan vibrancy of neighboring New Orleans. It's not an easy position when millennials are known for wanting to be in the middle of walkable, busy cities rather than quiet suburbs. "My parent's generat...

Is the governor the only person that can call a new Constitutional Convention? - Slippy
Why is JBE opposed to the idea? I realize he has only been on the job for a month, and he could change his mind. But I suspect he does not want to call a convention because he knows most of the delegates would be conservative (unlike the last call in 1972). It's the only way to fix this shite fr...

If it's possible to cut our way out of this massive budget problem, how come it wasn't done during EIGHT YEARS of a Republican governor and legislature. (I'm a Republican, btw)...

re: TOPS payments stopped immediately due to state budget crisis - Slippy
[quote]We will pay only for degrees that convert to tax revenue.[/quote] What a crock of shite. How do you determine that, Einstein? I have a degree in English Literature. And I pay quite a bit in taxes every year. I look forward to your list of majors that are on the "out" list....

re: Young people's support of Bernie is based in their love of free stuff. - Slippy
I am not trying to be flip about this, really. When I was in college (granted, it was at LSU), there were a LOT of conservative students who sort of counterbalanced the hippies. Those folks aren't there anymore. If they are, they are a tiny and insignificant minority. The young are lefter th...

re: Metairie Mardi Gras, like Metairie itself, is now irrelevant. - Slippy
Live in Jefferson, work in downtown Nola. Jeff Parish president John Young was on TV a few months ago hawking the redevelopment of Fat City because they need to do something to bring the young people back to Jefferson Parish, because young people want a more urban environment, etc. Fat City for ...

Metairie Mardi Gras, like Metairie itself, is now irrelevant. - Slippy
Watching the Channel 4 crew act stupid at various locations on Tuesday morning. There is nobody in Metairie. It's dead. Somebody remind me why suburban Mardi Gras exists in the first place, other than your parents' and grandparents' dislike of black people and desire to separate themselves from ...

Is there anything that can be done to improve the PMAC? - Slippy
Took the boy to the game on Saturday. Overall a nice time, but I was frustrated to see that the concourses and restroom facilities are still nothing short of lame. I went to hundreds of basketball games during my time at LSU (including law school). I graduated in that building twice. I really ...

re: Are there any issues in which you deviate from your party? - Slippy
Conservative on most issues, but I'm not averse to all new taxes. I want good roads, good schools, and good law enforcement, and will gladly pay more to get those things. Very anti-welfare. I don't want the government writing people checks. I depart from Republicans mostly on social issues. ...
