re: Do you support minimum wage laws? - EatnCreaux
Nope. Any job that starts at minimum wage is typically a starter job. If there are starter jobs that start at minimum wage, does it not stand to reason that there would be starter jobs that would pay less than minimum wage if not for the legal prohibition? If the answer is yes, then contemplate h...

Moving retirement funds - Bond Index or Treasury Securities? - EatnCreaux
With a significant sum that has done quite well distributed between an S&P 500 Index and a Dow Jones U.S. Completion Total Stock Market Index, I moved all of it to one that matches the Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Bond Index (which invests in government, corporate, and mortgage backed bonds) in e...

re: What are your 3 biggest criticisms of the President? - EatnCreaux
[quote]Keynesian economics are better than classical in crisis. [/quote] Wasn't the stimulus based on Keynesian philosophy? It seems the biggest gain from it was proving that the Keynesian approach to jump start an economy during an economic crisis is a resounding myth and an utter drain on produ...

re: Federal Judge - High School Graduation not the place for prayer - Again - EatnCreaux
Oh this gets better. This order came from the Western District of Texas, right? Wouldn't it seem odd if a judge from that same judicial district had his public investiture in a Cathedral? Oh, wait it actually happened in the Western District of Texas when a fellow District Judge was elevated to ...

re: Federal Judge - High School Graduation not the place for prayer - Again - EatnCreaux
I'd like to see the actual order in the Judge's words. It seems odd considering a federal judge's investiture ceremony in federal courthouses routinely includes an invocation and a benediction. I'm going to have a tough time understanding how school graduation ceremonies have less freedom of speech ...

re: Preacher doomsdayer sucks at math. - EatnCreaux
It's easy to give faith-based doomsday prognosticators a pass on the path their faith leads them. But it's much harder to give a pass to the doomsday folks who misuse science. How many times have scientists done the same thing the preacher did, but without the commitment of a date?...

re: So what is the actual deal with roller derby? - EatnCreaux
In order to avoid turning this into an IM thread, you and I are going to have to catch a roller derby one of these days. Does New Orleans have a team? The wife of one of my friends is on the Baton Rouge team, but I haven't seen a match yet. I'd love to learn more about it. My oldest is finishing ...

re: Elimination of Louisiana's State Income Tax - EatnCreaux
I see a lot of posts dismissing this as if it is merely a shell game that only serves to move money around on the books. There's another point to be made on this which this thread hasn't touched on yet - how this change alters behavior of the various transactors. It is true it won't necessarily a...
