Went tonight. They don't skimp on the portions. Fried pickle appetizer was pretty good. House salad was excellent. Unfortunately, the entrees were too salty, especially the fried oysters. Service was better than most restaurants in Baton Rouge. Place was packed with customers....

And just what did she do to prevent this world wide conspiracy, or combat it, while she was Secretary of State? I don't recall her addressing this topic then. How could she have been so oblivious to a world wide conspiracy? If she can only see it in hindsight, and react to it, then how can she ex...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Hate to say it, but a lot of you guys are in fantasy land re TRUMP's debate. - Poodlebrain on 9/28/16 at 10:05 am
If you are scoring a debate, then Trump's performance was miserable. But what really matters is how voters respond to Clinton's and Trump's performances. Who cares what people being polled think about who won the debate. The important information is how many people decided to vote for each candid...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: My assessment of the Auburn game after watching again - Poodlebrain on 9/28/16 at 9:09 am
Kevin Steele read LSU's playbook. The Auburn defenders knew where they had to be on the field, and they got there ahead of the LSU players more often than not. There was zero hesitation by the Auburn defenders. Compare that to how LSU defenders played for Steele last season, and there was an obvi...

re: When Hillary kept pressing for DJT's tax returns - Poodlebrain on 9/27/16 at 5:41 pm
If Donald Trump has not made his tax returns available to the public, then how would Hillary Clinton have any knowledge about their contents? Unless the tax return is the subject of litigation or a ruling request the IRS is required to protect the information. If Trump was on top of matters he wou...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Unbelievably, Trump's performance resonated bigly with working blacks, + Pepes - Poodlebrain on 9/27/16 at 3:25 pm
Do you think is might be that blacks put style ahead of substance? Good manners garner less respect than confrontation among many of the younger blacks in America. The blacks who reacted positively to Trump may have been more influenced by how he said things than what he actually said. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Hillary lost my wife's vote on forced profit sharing. - Poodlebrain on 9/27/16 at 12:05 pm
The tax rate on corporate income is 35%. An employee would have to earn over $250,000 to have an equal tax rate. An individual owner could have a tax rate of 39.6% in addition to Medicare surtaxes and net investment income taxes of an additional 4.7%. How likely are the employees to have equal ra...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
