re: Why do people look down on Andrew Jackson, but praise FDR? - pngtiger
Simply, biased history (it's all biased, I know). American history taught us how great fdr was and how everything he did was wonderful, especially the new deal, and how it was all the republicans and greedy capitalists' fault that the crash happened. They also taught that Jackson was known for the t...

re: New article on the welfare cliff, and how shitty the public policy was designed - pngtiger
Well, in this scenario, income would be guaranteed to $30k/year. If you make over, you do not get subsidized, and the amount of subsidy is dependent on your income. So, while the total population is 320 million, the population over 18 is 246 million. If you include all incomes under $35k (that's...

re: I'm traveling to the swamp need hotel help - pngtiger
Late to the game here, but I'll opine. There are a bunch of hotels right off I-75 on archer road. Don't know if they'll have vacancies at this point but you can still try. I've stayed in a few of them; they've been nice and staff has been great. There's quite a few places to eat/drink almost with...

re: LSU SEC NETWORK TAKE OVER: what game are you most looking forward to rewatch - pngtiger
Was looking forward to the Oregon game as well as the 1pm on schedule. But screw that now. 30 sec to 1 minute of game (and mostly inconsequential crap, while totally glossing over a scoring drive), compared to 3 minutes of commercials. I'm done watching ...

re: Any blue states on the verge of turning purple? (GEORGIA BUMP) - pngtiger
I know this is anecdotal, but out of all the states I've lived in, Ga was the most conservative and the most vocal about their values. I'm pretty conservative, leaning libertarian, and some of the stuff they said made me blush. The only way the state goes blue is enough transplants in Atlanta. Oh, a...

re: National Black Panther group looking to march with arms in Big Mamou Louisiana - pngtiger
Last weekend I was talking to one of the local cops, and he brought up a planned protest like this (with open carry). He said the law allows open carry, but it does not allow open carry in large groups. I don't know how true this is, or even if it's true in Louisiana (as this was in Alabama). ...

re: It is July 1st. Don't go to the hospital. - pngtiger
Nurse, damn you for posting those things! Time lost. Our new interns have been good so far, though not expecting much. They're overwhelmed, but we had a busy day so far. Think a gang war is starting back up. I'm not happy with some of the upper levels on the team. Orders not being placed. has...

re: you get an unexpected package in the mail - pngtiger
Had a couple I knew when I was in residency, one was OB the other family practice. Obviously they weren't home much. One day they get home and there's a box, they bring it in but don't open. Later that night the dogs start going crazy, they look outside and see people creeping on the house, then hea...

re: Raffle House controversy in St. Tammany. - pngtiger
What happened the other years? Agree that the father shouldn't have entered, but the money usually goes to charity. Honestly it's all a giant sham. The guy that built my house does a St Jude home every few years. Just so happens that the year after I move in, it's the one across the street from m...

re: Time killer thread: LSU baseball's best non-confernce rivalries - pngtiger
I was very surprised about Houston and USA too. I remember USA coming to the Box during the old regionals. They were always tough. I also remember Rice, CSF, and USC coming to the Box during those regionals. Those were some good games. I know there was a thread on this earlier this week, but I liked...

re: What are your thoughts on mission trips? - pngtiger
I understand some of the points, especially medical vs non-medical. Yes, some of it is self-serving, but it does give you perspective to how great we have things here. I did a medical mission trip a year ago in South America. Was only a week, but it was a hard week. I learned a lot and definitely...

The Wright brothers were their own enemy though. Glenn Curtiss came along and improved on their invention and patented his stuff. The Wright's, instead of continuing to innovate and improve on their idea, chose to fight legal battles against Curtiss. All of which they lost. They spent everything on ...
