re: Why do libertarians prefer consumption taxes, but scoff at tariffs? - N.O. via West-Cal
the biggest problem I see is that tariffs increase the cost of goods generally in the country that imposes them. So, the incentive to produce - because of the ability to charge higher prices because of decreased foreign competition - are offset by the increased costs that both manufacturers and cons...

re: Do you agree with this statement re: Trump's campaign? - N.O. via West-Cal
I disagree. It makes little sense to view the enthusiastic crowds at a Trump rally and conclude that a majority of the country supports Trump. Where are these crowds? What are their demographics? Does it make sense to assume the crowds reflect a cross-section of the country or just demographic porti...

re: LSU needs to be careful Tulane bringing back the Angry Wave mascot - N.O. via West-Cal
thumbs up on that logo/mascot. MUCH better than some of the stuff I've seen from the Greenies and a cool throwback quality, sort of like our "Tiger in the beanie" look. Not sure it will when them any games, but well played, Green Wave....

re: Could Defense Somehow Be Better Without Lacoture by mid season? - N.O. via West-Cal
No, now the D is better without, if only because of depth. Even if another player ended up getting more of CL's snaps, depth on the DL is of critical importance, both for rotations in games and due to injuries, which are almost inevitable at the DL position. I agree that it's possible that we could ...

re: 1 week too late; Top CNN USA story - N.O. via West-Cal
"Hopefully Obama can keep the racial divisive talk to a minimum. Baton Rouge does not need that now...especially since everyone has worked so hard together to help those in need." That's all I ask. Show support for Louisiana at this difficult time, buck up the troops, and leave. Please, please, p...

re: Double standard of the Trump Statues popping up - N.O. via West-Cal
I don't really care about the statue, but I thought essentially the same thing: it was vulgar when Rubio and Trump were talking about body parts and so forth, and it's really vulgar now, too. I am no shrinking violet, so no biggie, but the "tut-tutting" from the left turned into gleeful "this is fun...

re: From the Wash. Times: in the midst of disaster, BHO issues 16-page warning - N.O. via West-Cal
I have not been upset about the lack of a visit from the president, which is consistent with my view that Obama's predecessor was unfairly excoriated for not visiting after Katrina. But this has me seething. After casting a vote in 2008 that I deeply regret, I have come to loathe this divisive, stat...

re: Post speech feed back... this is being heard and received - N.O. via West-Cal
I agree that the speech as a good one and that it was well delivered. I rather doubt, though, that Trump is going to make any appreciable inroads with black voters, who have been the most consistent block vote in American politics for quite some time now. However, there is stil a potential reason to...

re: How the pollsters will get it wrong..... again. Trump wins. - N.O. via West-Cal
The polls could all be wrong, but I see nothing in your post to cause me to believe they are incorrectly favoring Clinton. Take youth vote turnout. Clinton is crushing Trump among younger voters. If they turn out at a higher than expected rate, how does that help Trump? I am not saying the electiio...

"Johnson/Weld 2016 is a real option" While uneasy about the libertarian impulse to be overly isolationist in foreign policy, I have otherwise become reasonably comfortable with this ticket. I realize they are unlikely to win but I have signed the online petition and will respond to any pollin...
