re: How would policy making be different if we acknowleged - BigJim
Not really. In many ways, it's what the dialogue is about now: Conservatives: people need to be free to make their own choices Liberals: there are a lot of dumb people out there, we need to care for them. That means govt programs. Cons: Govt makes life more complex with an alphabet soup...

re: The key to economic growth is not tax cuts - BigJim
[quote]Then $200 per hour minimum wage would solve all our debt problems![/quote] Actually it really might! Of course it would wreck our economy and no one would lend us money again and all our money would be worthless....

re: Just stopped in Baton Rouge - BigJim
I like TJ ribs and while there are better rib places (I like Jay's on Government; the one in Sherwood forest is terrible), it is a good restaurant to sit down and eat at. The other places are more holes in the wall. Quaint, but not exactly "nice." And yeah we need a loop. More precisely we ...

re: How badly did Bernie get crushed? Even WaPo agrees he was demolished - BigJim
From what I read of debate, it sounds like it. But this claim: [quote]Even WaPo agrees he was demolished[/quote] is nonsense. The author: [quote]Ed Rogers is a contributor to the PostPartisan blog, a political consultant and a veteran of the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush White Hous...

re: Which nation that is currently not "first world/wealthy", will be in 20 years or so? - BigJim
[quote]Indonesia[/quote] Not a bad guess. I am thinking an eastern European nation. Maybe Poland? Brazil is pretty poised to boom, but they can't get out of their own way. Russia? I am not even sure that counts. Also see Brazil. ...

re: Mississippi school named after Jefferson Davis to change name to Barack Obama - BigJim
No problem with school name changes in general. Honestly I can see a lot of schools getting named after Obama and frankly that's appropriate. However a general rule, I think name changes should wait until after the person they are going to be named after is dead. You just never know. ...

re: Seriously, why are Republicans fighting Trump's agenda so hard? - BigJim
You spend all of your post bitching about something you don't even bother to demonstrate exists. [quote]Just take the special election in Alabama [/quote] You mean the one where the voters threw out Trump's candidate? So really I guess the voters are fighting Trump... ...

re: Four Ann Arbor city council members take a knee during Pledge of Allegiance - BigJim
[quote]I think a lot of what we're seeing now from protesters is really a protest against Trump. Had he not opened his big mouth and used offensive language in the process this whole thing would be simply a memory by now. It's difficult to respect a man who shows so little respect. He is without que...

[quote]This is one of those examples where there is absolutely nothing wrong with the tweet, but if roles were reversed, it'd be a hate crime, essentially. But despite the double standard, I'm not going to pretend that tweet is hateful or some sign of liberal soullessness. Just because the b...

re: Four Ann Arbor city council members take a knee during Pledge of Allegiance - BigJim
[quote]"I can't speak to what is in each person's heart, but for me to 'take a knee' is an act of attention, of concern, and of respect," Warpehoski wrote on his website ahead of Monday's meeting and also stated at the meeting. "And it is in that spirit that I take a knee at tonight's City Council m...

re: When do we talk about the real issues? - BigJim
I tend to follow La politics more closely (and Baton Rouge too, since I live here). If there is an active federal legislative push, I love diving into that too, but I don't see any right now. There are some detailed tax reform, proposal but no actual bills. ...
