re: Can the Republicans stop Edwards when it comes to redistricting? - swamie
[quote]It'll be interesting to see how this plays out with JBE in a position of power.[/quote] More involved than Foster, less than Jindal I'm going to guess. But this really depends on how the chambers leadership vote goes. House needs to make sure the next Speaker won't be weak enough to ma...

re: Can the Republicans stop Edwards when it comes to redistricting? - swamie
When it comes to state districts: yes. you will have black dems side with GOP to vote the map through a veto. they will be asked to stick together as a bloc but would have to agree to dilute their minority voter % for the good of the LADEM. Easy for NOLA districts, much harder for rural hous...

re: Edwards +160k in Nola and EBR -120k rest of state - swamie

re: JBE, a friend of LSU - swamie
LOL at every LSU student who votes for JBE. Apart from his most famous lie about canceling LSU football unless he got his tax hikes. Here’s another one of his “pro-LSU” greatest lies. JBE will protect TOPS! 2016 [link=(https://www.nola.com/news/politics/article_db046f11-02c3-5510-89b7-a...

re: If Rispone loses the reason will be lack of plans - swamie
Besides expand Medicaid, name one other plan JBE mentioned in 2015 ETA: just thought about it. Even expansion wasn’t much of a plan. All he did was sign off on accepting cash. He obviously didn’t have a plan by how mismanaged the program has been....

[quote]But does that include fiber internet?[/quote] No. I’d drop internet all together if I went to cable. I rarely work from home and we surf the internet from our phones. Not like I would miss the Alexa and we’ve always talked about installing Nests but I wouldn’t add WiFi to save hal...

re: Hulu + Live TV increasing pricing by $10 a month - swamie
From $39 at the start of 2019 to $55 today. I’m out as soon as I decide where I’m going next. What’s the point of streaming services when they nudge prices near cable? AT&T internet ($50) + Hulu ($40) 1/1/19 = $90 AT&T raises internet $10 to $60 so I upgrade to fiber because it’s only $1...

re: Obama, Holder Group Drops $300K Into Louisiana Governor’s Race - swamie
In 1 year you’ll hear a lot about how CD-2 is an example of packing and how we need to completely redraw the districts to dilute the other 5 districts which was stacked by the GOP. Remind these intentionally misinformed people that during the last redistricting cycle that section 4b of the VRA wa...

re: Impeachment Inquiry: with William Taylor and George Kent-Watch LIVE - swamie
I want to dig deeper into this “smear campaign”. I heard a little about social media posts which I don’t believe were denied. Let’s say a political hit list didn’t exist. Are they advocating to retain an Ambassador that speaks out against the President on social media and if you don’t, it’s ...

re: Impeachment Inquiry: with William Taylor and George Kent-Watch LIVE - swamie
[quote]Optics matter.[/quote] What is uncovered or answered to is what matters. How the counselor who is asking the questions looks, sounds, or behaves has zero impact on how Taylor and Kent’s answers are perceived. I’d say Castor has given the GOP a great deal of testimony to pursue or des...

re: Northwestern Apologizes to Students for Reporting News That Triggered Them - swamie
They showed up to cover a protest. Some students made bad choices that could lead to expulsion. When they tried to disrupt the speech, do you expect the coverage to stop? Before you answer, remember that the decision to remove pictures and quotes was because of fear of helping the school iden...
