re: Lol. The drivers who ride your tail and flash their lights - Horsemeat on 11/18/18 at 4:16 am
I'm a truck driver - any time I roll through BR I hop in the far left lane for funsies. All those nerds in pickups get all mad - flashing their lights like they're big and bad. What are you going to do, move a 40 ton semi? Lol...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (6)

[quote]Conversely if the only reason they are staying is because of a 5% property tax rate, I'd rather 5% than absolute nothing[/quote] Take the example of Exxon in Baytown vs Baton Rouge - the tax rate in Baytown is astronomical in comparison but they aren't moving or complaining. Why shouldnt E...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Why Louisiana stays poor - Horsemeat on 11/15/18 at 10:24 am
Again, you're comparing property taxes vs sales taxes with mj and betting. This is physical land these companies own that aren't being taxed. This is like if the Governor were to say "Property of government workers will no longer be taxed because they're important to us". It wouldnt fly at all. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

[quote]making for more taxes.[/quote] Not when they're paying taxes on less than 5% of the land they own and just expand on land they already own. Look I'm a pretty big fiscal conservative but I'm not going to say that they should get these tax breaks when the citizenry is facing tax increase...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

No industrial plant is going to move because they're getting taxed on land they own. The income tax rate can be negotiated but they should absolutely pay taxes on the lands they own - just like the rest of property owners in this state. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: What’s the vibe like at a truck stop casino? - Horsemeat on 11/13/18 at 1:06 pm
Theres a bunch of them in Oklahoma. Usually the poor gambling away their welfare and truckers looking to get out of the truck for an evening. A lot of the ones in places like Illinois are just slot machines. My personal favorite is the Wild West T.S. & Casino in Vegas - has a sports book and is a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
