re: Masters degree and salary - StringedInstruments
It should help with negotiating a salary if you're able to. For me, teaching salaries are set. $42k if I went back into teaching right now. About $50k if I go back after I finish my master's. ...

re: Yes or No: Bernie Sanders gets the democrat nomination - StringedInstruments
[quote]Rand paul would mop the floor with her in the debates.[/quote] Debates don't matter. I thought Biden came across like a petulant child in his debate with Ryan. I felt Ryan was more professional in nearly every answer and seemed to have a strong head on his shoulders when it came to the...

re: Yes or No: Bernie Sanders gets the democrat nomination - StringedInstruments
Not a chance. Hillary is touted as the front runner by every major news network and website. Yet, she hasn't really done jack shite yet to garner that kind of momentum. The media (and corporate interests) has their darling, and she'll waltz right into the election. ...

re: What are the best sandwiches in Louisiana? - StringedInstruments
While everyone has suggested wonderful sandwiches, I'm going to offer one I had last week that was on the lighter, "girlier" side. We stopped on Magazine to get a snack from La Boulangerie. My wife grabbed a La Fromager, and it was absolutely incredible. Triple creme brie, tomatoes, roasted red ...

re: Now's The Time To End Tax Exemptions For Religious Institutions - StringedInstruments
[quote] The Catholic Church donates over $3.6 billion/year and is the largest charitable donor in the world. LINK 85% of their revenue which is 99% donor driven, is given to charities. The rest goes towards operating expenses.[/quote] And that's great. None of that should be taxed. Y...

re: Now's The Time To End Tax Exemptions For Religious Institutions - StringedInstruments
[quote] How is that the Church's fault? The Church doesn't pick and choose which values to follow. These are the values of the church. We should all strive to live to those values. If a politician also believes in those values, good for him. That's not the church influencing the public on who to vo...

[quote]Whose definition of good?[/quote] Something measurable. A church doesn't need a fricking swimming pool to teach families to raise their kids with morals. Churches build these amenities to attract new members. These members add to donations, which give the church more purchasing powe...

re: Now's The Time To End Tax Exemptions For Religious Institutions - StringedInstruments
[quote] Also, what Churches, do you think, have a slush fund to build what you call a "luxury resort"? My Catholic Church is building a new multi-million dollar church + facilities. It is funded 100% by donations. I find these sort of assumptions and generalizations regarding Christians and C...

re: Now's The Time To End Tax Exemptions For Religious Institutions - StringedInstruments
I do think churches (and other religions) should have tax exemption to the charity work they perform. But some of these churches building multi-million dollar compounds with $250k+ sound systems, and all the amenities of luxury resort need to pay some taxes on it. Spending a million dollars ...

[quote]Uptown New Orleans you'd probably need to make about 200k+ if you want a house that big and pay for private school for 3 kids. Probably at least 150k if you want to live in New Orleans proper and have a house that size, while sending 3 kids to private school.[/quote] The numbers I'm seeing...
