re: BREAKING NEWS: LSU changes school logo. - LSU GrandDad
Louisiana doesn't have a revenue problem, they have a spending problem. and, like the rest of this great nation, they have a leadership problem. it seems us voters are dumb asses and let most of them rape us; local, state and federal....

re: Did JBE create the financial shortfall? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]oil and gas, which we are completely dependent on[/quote] that is simply not true. Louisiana has a state income tax and rather high business taxes. and, we can't forget the sales taxes. I lived in Tennessee and florida, neither had an income tax or oil and gas revenues. go figure. SP...

re: Did JBE create the financial shortfall? - LSU GrandDad
well, considering he's been on office about 6 months and Jindal was there 8 years go figure. the PROBLEM is simple; Louisiana has an above avg tax revenue stream. so where's the damn money going. the constitution protects just about every program; they are "sacred cows". what is NOT protected...

re: "Not only is LSU not a top 5 team next season, they're not top 20 (football)" - LSU GrandDad
the internet has really fricked up "news". used to be news was pretty reliable. now, it isn't news at all, it's how many hits can I get. that and social media has got a lot of people unable to distinguish between fact and fiction. the written word, according to more than one psychological study carri...

re: Perspective for those who complain about Miles salary - LSU GrandDad
[quote]I understand the buy-out completely. [/quote] then you must agree it wasn't that bad. the wealthy alums funding it were willing (as rumored) to take the risk of miles not taking another job and splitting the 1.8 mil. but,imo, it was a good bet that he would have taken a job making that a...

re: Perspective for those who complain about Miles salary - LSU GrandDad
[quote]It's not the salary, it's his nearly unparalleled buy-out.[/quote] you probably don't understand how his buy out worked; the 15 mil was spread out over 8 years and then any money he made at a new gig offset that years buyout. 15 mil divided by 8 equals 1,875,500 per year. if miles took ...

re: MAG: Clinton and their policies have decimated black America - LSU GrandDad
the Clinton's nor their policies have decimated no one, much less an entire group. always gotta blame someone else for one's deficiencies. all welfare reform has done is create a new class of Americans; the working poor. we need 'em tho and I do not resent any benefits they receive. I do res...

re: Let's say Miles keeps the offense the same. - LSU GrandDad
our offense is like these spread teams offense; shut down one facet of it and they lose. so these high powered air raid guys never go undefeated as somebody on their schedule shuts them down and they CAN'T adjust. only a balanced offense CAN adjust. there most certainly will be games that we have...

re: Will Daddy A&M continue its complete and total Basketball domination over LSU? - LSU GrandDad
for the life of me I can't understand you aggies spouting off BEFORE a game. it makes you really look stupid if you lose. both teams have talent, LSU is improving and they are at home. my advice to you is to give up betting. you are way too emotional and just ignore common sense. ...
