re: 2nd Car-For Gas Savings? - Mingo Was His NameO
Probably not. My simple 2 minute calculation was: Gas milage for truck 16 mpg Car 32 mpg. Driving 112 miles per day you'd save about 1.86 gallons per day. For 200 work days you'd save about $1,850 a year, but you'd have to spend 8-10k on a decent used car and then carry insurance and do main...

re: Why Louisiana stays poor - Mingo Was His NameO
[quote] It's ludicrous when corporations making billions annually in profit pay zero in state income taxes.[/quote] I would bet there is precisely zero companies making "billions in profit" in Louisiana. Louisiana can only tax income made in the state, and most companies do very little business i...

re: Why does Louisiana allow cell phones in schools - Mingo Was His NameO
[quote]My personal feelings on the policy are irrelevant. [/quote] As someone who has to enforce the policy and deals directly with students and parents, your feeling on the policy carry more merit than most. I'm not surprised you don't understand that though. ...

re: Why does Louisiana allow cell phones in schools - Mingo Was His NameO
[quote]Kind of like how your car gets impounded if you choose to not have insurance coverage. [/quote] One is a law, the other is an arbitrary policy, pretty big difference. [quote]But your issue seems to be with it being a “state run” school. What about a private school confiscating it for ...

re: Why does Louisiana allow cell phones in schools - Mingo Was His NameO
[quote]I had nothing to do with creating the policy, but it is my job to enforce it. I'm sorry that you can't read. [/quote] Until now you were advocating for it with statements such as "they know the policy, follow it." You never made any statement indicating you had any kind of problem with it...
