Let's talk about slavery reparations. - Slippy
This article from HuffPo is about 6 months old. But I struggle to see how anyone could possibly think handing out billions of dollars to black people for supposed wrongs committed against their ancestors would be a good thing. [quote]Bottom line: reparations are going to cost a lot of money. B...

[quote]I'm also not going to be the know it all who points and laughs at 87% of folks who potentially lost everything this week just to show how smart I am [/quote] I don't think anybody is pointing at people. These are tragic circumstances. But this is a conversation that needs to happen on a ...

Only 13% of folks in EBR had flood insurance. - Slippy
Livingston a little higher at 22%, but that's still bad. Very eye opening article: I actually remember people in New Orleans being happy and celebrating that they were not required by their mortgage company to have flood insurance. I'm sure many people around BR did the same. I have a bad ...

re: BR as the floodwaters abate... - Slippy
[quote]but wouldn't that be countered by the fact that a lot of these homeowners are going to get a chunk of change with which to re-build in these areas?[/quote] Not sure what you are asking, but I think the answer is no. The market will only see the word "flooded" and will value that property ...

re: BR as the floodwaters abate... - Slippy
You're going to have quite a large number of people, even in "nice" neighborhoods, who thought they didn't need flood insurance. They are stuck. It will take a long, long time for them to come back, and their slowness in renovating their properties will drag down the overall value of neighborhoods...

re: So what happens to all the people who didnt have flood insurance - Slippy
"I'm not in a flood plain." What an ignorant crock of shite. If you live in Baton Rouge, you are in the flood plain of the Mississippi. All of south La was built by flooding rivers. You now live in 100% complete reliance on man made levees. If you feel ok doing that without insurance, good luck...

re: So what happens to all the people who didnt have flood insurance - Slippy
So... You watched Katrina and Rita and Gustav and the March 2016 flooding but STILL thought you were immune? You honestly believe that there is anyplace in South Louisiana that is immune from flooding? Do you enjoy a nice game of Russian Roulette in your spare time?...

Is it wrong to vote based soley on projections of economic stability? - Slippy
In other words, voting based on who will be best for my 401k. I know there is an anti-establishment angle to going against what Wall Street wants (and Wall Street obviously wants Hillary). Is Trump's election more likely to cause or contribute to an international monetary crisis and a national rec...

Somebody explain the black ministers to me. - Slippy
How come whenever there is a news story involving a black person, or somebody is getting dissed or shot, the black ministers hold a press conference? Why black ministers? What the hell kind of authority do they possess? Why do they speak as a group? Does anybody listen to them? Does anybody c...

Hot girl syndrome. - Slippy
I know two young women, both pretty, both blonde. Both married with no kids. One is genuine, humble, friendly, self deprecating. A hot girl who either doesn't know how hot she is, or (more likely) is secure in who she is. She's conservative and can joke in a non-PC manner when in the company o...
