re: Confederate Flag to fly over Richmond I-95 - backgroundnoise on 8/8/13 at 9:43 pm
There is also a big Confederate flag along I-75 near I-4 in Tampa. Always gets a little chuckle from me when driving by and I realize most people in Tampa (and Florida) are from the Northeast.

I am quite confident that this simple 29 mile project will go way over budget on both time and money, it will take twice as long as it should, and cost twice as much.

Edwin Edwards gets a standing ovation from the legislature - backgroundnoise on 5/2/13 at 1:25 pm
Kind of surprised, but then again, kind of not surprised. May be just me but it seems like all the old politicians trying to hold on to power end up in the state Senate. Does the guy who more or less is responsible for the state's stagnant growth really deserve a standing ovation? [link=(http://w...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (15)

re: What's it looking like for Dardenne running for Governor? - backgroundnoise on 4/20/13 at 4:09 pm
I would say Dardenne's chances are good, but it depends on who runs. On the D side, only Jim Bernhard (who would also be pro-LSU) and Mitch (tossup on LSU) could beat him. On the R side, it depends on if a candidate from the Tony Perkins-right-wing gets in and positions themselves as such. Dardenne'...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
