re: LA inspection sticker - eitek1
You are correct about St. James. There is a single station in St. James parish that can do the emissions test. I know this because there was also a station in East Feliciana that did this. The problem was they would ONLY do the emissions testing at this station. This was an issue because the...

re: LA inspection sticker - eitek1
There are five parishes in the state that require emissions tests. If you live in one of those parishes you can't go to a parish that doesn't do the test and get a sticker. I think it's St. James, East Baton Rouge, Ascension and I'm not sure about the two others. Also, Orleans parish does th...

re: Did Alton Sterling manage to fire off a round while gun was in his pocket?? - eitek1
One thing about the video jumped out at me. Notice that the cop didn't search him for the gun. He pulled it straight out of his pocket. The only way he could have known that it was at that location is if he was if saw it during the scuffle. If he hadn't seen it he wouldn't have known where it was...

re: Is white privilege a real thing? - eitek1
[quote]The genesis of these problems are rooted in slavery and 100 years of living as third class citizens after that that instilled a cycle and culture of poverty, disenfranchisement, and broken homes. Again, this doesn't absolve black individuals of personal responsibility, but it does give the ov...

re: Suggestions for dog breed. Needs to be good for families and protection. - eitek1
Have you ever thought about a Catahoula? I've had several. Mine were a bit large 85-105 pounds but they are usually smaller. They are very smart and can be really protective. They will protect your place if you aren't around. I once told my brother in law to come over to borrow a tool. He has been a...

re: Is white privilege a real thing? - eitek1
My wife is from the Appalachian mountains. I'm not sure of the demographic make up but it's almost all white people. There is poverty there that is just hard to figure out. It's generational and it's easy to see it being propagated to the next generation as the younger generation gets older. It...

I was once in a "diversity" meeting. I told a story about a black guy that I knew. I Told everyone about his qualifications, his work ethic, his veteran status, and ultimately handing out 100 resumes and not getting one call back. I asked what the major factor was in the lack of responses from t...

re: Guy that makes his SO fix his plate of food - eitek1
Not sure how old you are but as you get older you might actually figure out that some women don't believe that the latest sitcom should dictate the dynamics of their behavior as it relates to their spouse. Some women like being women and enjoy "taking care of" their men. While I am fully capab...

I have a buddy that lives on land that borders the Yakima indian reservation. They have herds that run wild there. He said the wild mustangs are awesome horses. He said after riding one for a while he won't go back to a quarter horse. He said they are incredibly tough and just don't have any "quit" ...
