re: Taxpayers spend $65 million subsidizing the operation of the Super Dome and SKC - BigJim
[quote] 1. It allowed the state to consolidate its offices in NOLA. 2. It ended the almost $20million dollar a year payment to Benson to keep the Saints. 3. It might be costing the state an extra $4 million/yr for office space but it allows us to have a NFL team and an NBA team. That keeps NOLA...

[quote]It's our problem because we eat the food. This isn't hard to understand, really[/quote] So if they grow the food someplace else, we the consumers might have to pay a nickel more for a head of lettuce. Not sure that justifies massive public spending to correct this (California's) problem...

re: Why is "taking less profit" never on the table? - BigJim

re: Why is "taking less profit" never on the table? - BigJim
[quote]The other thing I meant to add, as a corollary, was "tipping." Businesses have so ingrained this practice in our heads, it's amazing. I mean, I get the practice when it comes to, for example, a small coffee shop or whatever. And restaurants. But hotels/motels? We're now supposed to tip the ma...

re: I think we get a split decision from SCOTUS in the gay marriage case. - BigJim
[quote]If people can't get married there, but can be married here, I'd argue the state isn't defining marriage as it sees fit. [/quote] But that is already the case. Marriage requirements vary from state to state (blood tests, age of consent, cousin laws, etc) but states recognized marriages per...

re: Question for Political Talk regulars... - BigJim
I mostly care about Louisiana state and local politics and policy. I am not even aware of another forum that covers those topics. For a site dedicated to southern collegiate sports, I am amazed at how this isn't a rightist hivemind. Sure it leans right (OK-heavily tilts right), but you get some...
