I would also pay local teenagers to pick up litter and fund an internship program (a lot of people don't realize how a high teenage unemployment rate is so detrimental to society).


You think they'll take these jobs voluntarily?

Teen unemployment is high because teens don't like to work. There are plenty of teenage jobs around.

I would build a wall around St George.

John McDonogh did exactly this and look what happened. His endowment squandered, his legacy hated and thrown in the river.

I'm in New Orleans so probably hire about 100,000 police officers to fix the crime.


You'd have to start by getting rid of the Chocolate City moniker.

Good way to waste money.

Spending has never been an issue with any schools in LA.

Can there be something to help a place like NOLA?

You really can’t help people who don’t want to help themselves. Things can be changed but it doesn’t mean people will want to change along with it.

I would invest in the reconstruction of marshlands in all of South Louisiana and not just Terrebonne Parish. The whole coast line can use some help. Oh, and tell the Army Corps of Engineers to stop playing god and let some sedimentary flow through the tributaries and not flush out into the gulf from the Mississippi.

I'd build a compound up in the mountains with a helicopter pad a few miles away. Don't want to disturb anything too close to my house.

Offer to move the people who feel like they are such victims of racism that they cannot succeed in this country, and therefore hate this country, to whatever country of their choice they’d wish to go to.

Then I would give the police force a bunch of money to be able to pay them attractive salaries to draw the best candidates there.

Then I would invest in local businesses to create good paying jobs and boost the local economy, as well as create something to bring Some sort of tourism in.

Buy out all the non-historic district houses and develop them in a manner consistent with the aesthetic/architecture. Do the same for every commercial space.

I want that shite to look like it came out of a postcard.

The things I would want to do to spruce up Baton Rouge would get me banned.
