re: Is this the least talked about gubernatorial race in your lifetime? - BigJim
Not as much interest since seems it a fait accompli, with Vitter beating Edwards in the runoff. However two things will change that: 1. A few polls show support for vitter starting to slip; and 2. The campaign really starts after this weekend. Labor day is like the green flag for the candi...

re: Uniformed officer refused service at Arbys........for being a cop - BigJim
1. Read the article. The manager overruled the employee; the cop got his food. The corporation already apologized. 2. However, I do think they have the [i]right [/i]to refuse cops; and to suffer the PR marketing nightmare that ensues. Same basic deal as cakes to gay couples. Business should b...

re: It's the welfare stupid!! 51% of immigrants on welfare---end that - BigJim
[quote]They can't be on welfare, they're all "hard workers."[/quote] Also from the study: [quote]Immigrants are more likely to be working than their native-born neighbors. The report found that 87% of immigrant households had at least one worker, compared to 76% for native households.[/quote] ...

re: Disproving Bobby Jindal's Lies--Clancy DuBos - BigJim
Ugh. I was hoping to avoid this thread and let it die a natural death 1. Clancy is correct. Jindal did not cut the budget as much as he claimed. He did cut the budget, but it's kinda complicated. 2. You should not look at the overall budget. As many point out, that includes a lot federal...

re: US Murder Rates Rising Sharply in Many US Cities - NY Times - BigJim
[quote]It's a nationwide trend based on data from 30 US cities, not only the cities mentioned in the bit I quoted.[/quote] And if it's the 30 largest cities (as opposed to just 30 cities they happened to pick) and overall murder has gone up, then I retract my statement. But I didn't see LA, Sa...

re: US Murder Rates Rising Sharply in Many US Cities - NY Times - BigJim
[quote]But it's not just those cities. And 20% increases in cities where there's a relatively large sample size of murders (IOW, it's not an increase of 2 murders made a 20% increase) is definitely a trend. Even 60% increase isn't wholly explainable by BLM or any of the other nonsense that's happene...

Clearly members of the military lean conservative. Much more so in the officers than enlisted; but neither are monolithic. This is really a question you could google rather come to the PT board and engage in an anecdote war....

re: US Murder Rates Rising Sharply in Many US Cities - NY Times - BigJim
Two problems I have with the article: St. Louis, Baltimore and even New Orleans I think we can come up with reasons. Take those three out and what does the trend look like over all cities? In any given year crimes will rise in fall. You will always be able to find cities with rising murder r...

re: What character flaws exclude candidates from your consideration during elections - BigJim
Character issues would be just one of many factors a look at. So I don't have a bright line. That said, I cannot envision the other factors that would realistically let me vote for a rapist. Maybe the other guy is a multiple rapist?...

re: Professors threaten students with bad grades for using "illegal alien" - BigJim
