re: Are Republicans really getting what they want in Louisiana? - dixiechick
[quote]Why do you and others keep claiming we dont have enough people.[/quote] I’m not sure I understand what you mean by enough people? Do You mean enough people to fill available jobs? All I’m saying is it shouldn't be the taxpayers responsibility to train people for specific jobs. ...

[quote]n addition, the majority of Louisiana Republicans are conservative on social issues and nothing else. Louisiana Republicans (politicians and electorate) have never been fiscally conservative and have never been conservative when it comes to government intervention. I hate it. But, it is what ...

re: Are Republicans really getting what they want in Louisiana? - dixiechick
[quote]I'm playing the long game[/quote] I get that. But the long game, it seems, for both parties is “how do we get tax payers to fund x,y,z” ( replace x, y, z with whatever). The long game, for them IS a PERMANENT FUNDING SOURCE for whatever they deem necessary. We have Rs who openly support ev...

re: 10 year Federal NHI study proves smartphones/tablets making our kids retarded - dixiechick
You’re forgetting that these kids are on tablets all day at school as well. It’s no wonder why Bill Gates sent his kid to a school that did not have technology. I can’t stand it that parents are buying into the whole push for technology in the classroom/ 21st century schooling bs. Are there any scho...

re: Get ready to Ralph...Abraham - dixiechick
I’ll be brief. He was the man responsible( behind the scenes working with legislators and gov)for changing the way the state used “resources” for workforce development... ie, he wanted a permanent funding source... ie taxpayers via the education system, via school choice. This is my main issue with ...

re: Get ready to Ralph...Abraham - dixiechick
I’m a R who voted for Jindal and then JBE. I would love to vote for Abraham if he truly is for reducing spending as he says and not just handing taxpayer dollars over to private interests( like Rispone) I can honestly say I don’t know that much about the guy. Maybe that’s a good thing?!?! I’ll have ...

re: kennedy not running for governor - dixiechick
He in a true “insider” in the worst sense. He has been influential in getting legislation through that supports merging the depth of labor and education... ie louisiana workforce commission.
