re: Who built that, again? - klrstix
Depends on how you frame the question... For example.. does not the state and local governments benefit from the taxes paid by businesses and individuals that use the roads and schools they built?? See how that works... ...

re: Race, Politics and Lies (new Thomas Sowell article) - klrstix
[quote]Can you think of message that would resonate so well with people who have made poor life decisions? People who face problems with drug addition, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, lack of gainful employment, lack of marketable skills, lack of basic education, or a criminal record absolutely lov...

re: Huey Long's influence on LSU football - klrstix
[quote] You just have no idea about what came before him. It was worse.[/quote] Great deal of truth to this.... Our 1st Gov. elected by the people was so corrupt he barely escaped NY with his skin... Yet won the popular vote in our state. Which only proves the old joke about how our ...

re: Race, Politics and Lies (new Thomas Sowell article) - klrstix
[quote]I agree with your take re kids, though it applies to adults as well. Kids from any economic level turn into ne'er-do-wells when they aren't taught, and held to, basic standards.[/quote] To tag into this thought.... I think this steps into the insipid nature of much of the left thi...

re: How do lsu fans feel about the qb spot? - klrstix
[quote] What makes you optimistic other than the need to be optimistic? [/quote] For me.. its the thought that both QB's have seen real game time and have had an opportunity to step back to access and respond (under the coaches direction) to an entire season of those realities... Time will...

re: Hypothetical re: SC decision on Obamacare - klrstix
Here is the way this would play out... Businesses would cease to abide by the terms of ACA since the government could not "force" them to based upon the SC ruling... Individuals would cease to pay "penalties" due to the SC ruling... Funding would collapse... THE END!...

re: Going to War for Israel - klrstix
[quote] This kind of reasoning is shortsighted and just plain wrong. Israel is our buffer to Islamic fundamentalist. If Israel did not exist we would have their undivided attention and they would have no counter to their ability to spread freely through the Middle East, Africa, Asia and even parts ...

re: The sanctions against LSU are insignificant - klrstix
For me, this will be interesting to see how this "appeals process" plays out. If I understand the process correctly, I can see why a conference (in this case the SEC..) would rule in any given circumstance in a way that brings the full brunt of punishment into play. That way the conference would...

re: Is There Really A QB Competition This Spring... - klrstix
[quote] Dumb question perhaps, but do we really want a QB who has to be disciplined and begged to try hard? (Obviously, he's the more talented skill-wise). [/quote] Not a dumb question. Truth is in many cases the young bucks in High School have been able to cruise on their ability alone and no...

re: Thomas Sowell Laying Down Some Truth - klrstix
[quote] Nuclear weapons are beyond the capbility of non-state actors, and I don't see any nation-state giving them to a non-state actor despite what the neocons would have you believe. [/quote] I would certainly like to think that. However, (maybe its my cynicism) it is not a stretch to think ...
