re: Apparently Indian-Americans are not big Jindal fans - LSUgusto
I learned something about Louisiana as a hometown news reporter. The people of Louisiana tolerate corruption, as long as they think they can benefit from it. And they want to keep it that way. I used to think that was just a Louisiana thing, having always been known for the worst corruption. ...

re: Apparently Indian-Americans are not big Jindal fans - LSUgusto
[quote]They viewed him as a brilliant but wholly insincere sellout.[/quote]As a young reporter, I remember the first time I got cover a Jindal event, hearing all the buzz about what a "charismatic whiz" he was. It was a meeting of the Republican party in Lake Charles. Gosh, was I both unimpressed ...

re: Film Critic Calls for Banishment of ‘Gone With the Wind’ Over ‘Insidious’ Racism - LSUgusto
I grew up hearing about this movie, always hearing the score at Academy Awards, when we could angle the antenna right on our TV channel. :lol: I always thought it was some stupid love story about some rich, spoiled bitch not getting what she wanted while her racist entitlements evaporated during...

re: Did Roberts admit to legislating from the bench? - LSUgusto
I'm guessing we differ in our notion of the malleability of the constitution. I think we'd be better served by trying to stick to it as rigidly as we can, versus modifying it in the heat of current events to achieve peace. Do I have our disagreement right?...

re: It was all fun and games years ago, wasn't it? - LSUgusto
[quote]We are victims.[/quote]You certainly are. You admit that the corruption of the Confederate flag occurred by racists in the 1960's. But, rather than try to rectify that wrong, you wuss out and acquiesce to the emotional political mob of today, just like then, rather than fight to preserve ...

[quote]the confederate flag or rebel flag was actually the naval jack used from 1863 on. The square version of the same flag was the battle flag of the North Virginia army.[/quote]Thanks. I appreciate the historical clarification....

re: It was all fun and games years ago, wasn't it? - LSUgusto
You already know this, Scoop, but you need to be reminded... It's not who caused the problem. It's who gets blamed when it falls apart. Right now, our news, social media and infotainment industry are very adept at pinning every catastrophe on conservatives and the GOP, and not letting "crisis g...

re: Upholding Obamacare was a HUGE benefit to the GOP - LSUgusto
I agree. I know that isn't popular on the right today, but there's no doubt in my mind that the current GOP leadership would have made a complete debacle of the aftermath had the subsidies been struck down. They certainly wouldn't have implemented any conservative reforms, and most assuredly would...

Don't know if this has been posted anywhere here today, but found it interesting, as a spot-on prediction from 2005: [link=(http://townhall.com/columnists/benshapiro/2005/07/20/president_bushs_roberts_pick_disappoints/page/full)]Roberts pick disappoints[/link][quote]Roberts is not an originalist....

re: Lawmakers Put Brakes On Resolution To Ban Mississippi Flag From Capitol - LSUgusto
[quote]It's amazing how often this phrase is used incorrectly.[/quote]Help me out here, seriously. I didn't know the difference, and, after a brief internet search, is the only difference the "battle flag" is square and was used by soldiers, vs. the "stars and bars" being rectangular in shape and n...
