re: Trump kicks out reporter "Go back to Univision" - JT
Where does this delusion that it must be a one-time nationwide roundup come from? We just have to fix things so that the rate of deportation exceeds the rate of illegal entry / overstay. Even if it takes 25 years, it is worth it to us to fix the problem....

re: Fashion - Grading the suits and overall look at the 1st GOP debate - JT
Christie looked like he took the whole "you look slimmer with a tan" thing too much to heart. He opted for so many layers of spray tan that he ended noticeably darker than everyone excepting Carson....

re: This kid Roof is clearly insane - JT
Correlation does not equal causation. Furthermore, you are actually weakening the argument some have made about this country not caring enough about mental illness. It looks like mental illness was recongnized in these folks on the list and medication was prescribed to help them. What I get f...

re: When is war necessary? Its it ever necessary? - JT
Human nature is immutable. If a person feels sufficiently stressed, his chemical balance is altered in ways which may enable him to justify committing violence. Until you can change this for every person on the planet, there will be war. Necessary or not....

re: at what point during evolution did humans obtain free will? - JT
[quote] No, that is planning and decision-making. I think many people believe they have free will because they believe they are fully responsible for their thoughts. This is a false sense.[/quote] Without planning and decision making (requiring internal reflection, sense of self, understanding of...

re: at what point during evolution did humans obtain free will? - JT
[quote]at what point during evolution did humans obtain free will?[/quote] Too many fuzzy terms involved for a precise, meaningful answer. "Free will" is not a well-defined concept. Yes, there is evidence that "lower animals" have some simpler form of this as well. But I would say that wha...

re: Citizens United Spinoff: How would you like to see campaigns financed? - JT
This looks like a step in the right direction. I would like to see serious limitations to lobbying and purchasing of influence in daily life outside of the election cycle as well....

re: Baton Rouge Traffic - JT
Haven't decided how much exactly we will spend to be honest. We are hoping for a 5 BR though, and there aren't many choices on Zillow that are near where I would work unless you are willing to go above 800K. Just looking for alternatives with lower price per square and reasonable commute....

re: Baton Rouge Traffic - JT
And, I know Bocage would be ideal, but for the size house we need, the price per square is a little more than we want to put in a house at this time, especially before I've spent long enough in the new job to know it will work out....

Baton Rouge Traffic - JT
Been a long time since I lived in BR and could use some advice about traffic patterns. We are looking to possibly move back to BR soon and I am considering where to live. I would be working near the Baton Rouge country club. How would the commute be from the Country Club of Louisiana area? ...

re: Conservative hack site USA Today: "contrary to goals, ER usage rises under ACA" - JT
[quote]The only way to fix this ER problem is to have less people seen by the real ER docs. And that happens when you redirect them somewhere else.[/quote] Getting EMTALA fixed is political suicide. We are stuck with it forever. Theoretically you could get around it if your hospital could s...

re: Louisiana has highest percentage of people that stayed in the area - JT
IMO, this is due to the strong Cajun tradition of stressing the importance of family combined with many not having the resources to move or liking the outdoor activities too much to leave them behind. Most of my family lives within a 20 mile circle and it's always been that way. The few of us th...

re: The last hurrah of tea partyers and social conservatives? - JT
For many, political inclination change over time. Millenials (hard as it may be to believe) are people too. Assuming some of them eventually are able to find jobs, they won't like tax increases any better overall than the working people of today....

re: Will the National Debt sink America-eventually? - JT
I am not an economist, but the way I see it is that we are doing better than Europe currently and probably for the next several years. If we do reach a point where we have to cut military spending drastically (likely in the next 10-20 years imo) then we again gain an advantage over Europe as they...
