re: Trump making school lunches great again - dinosaur
Amazing at how this went from school lunch to "I hate republicans". I am a registered democrat. But the party left me behind long ago. Went from the party of the working man to the party of non-working man and from the party of noble goals to the party of knowing better than I do of what is good ...

re: Trump making school lunches great again - dinosaur
Kids are not getting fat off of school lunch. And it is not a healthy v unhealthy choice. It is possible for food to be healthy and acceptable to kids. Michelle's plan has very little white anything - rice, potatoes, bread, noodles. If I was more paranoid I would say it was racist....

re: Trump making school lunches great again - dinosaur
Either you are unaware of the "healthy " lunch Obama program results or you are democrat true believer. Kids generally toss most of the menu items. You can have healthy food that kids eat but Michelle's program isn't working. ...

re: Why doesn't the government end the Earned Income Tax Credit - dinosaur
It is a good program for true low income workers but one of the most abused. Fake a minimum income, say from babysitting, rent a couple kids and presto tax refund. I used to get regularly asked to help with docs to claim someone else's kids when I did taxes. Just too easy to cheat on this one. ...

The question is which side is lying. Or can it be both? But there is unquestionably a politically motivated timing to the stories....

re: The Chevy Tahoe lobby must be tGoat. - dinosaur
I understand that they last longer and wind up with a cheaper cost per mile than a sedan. And GM makes a special package for law enforcement. Most started changing when the crown vic was discontinued. ...

re: Why didn’t any of the women come out against Moore during the primaries or before? - dinosaur
The timing seems to be the key but the strategy is to get the claims out into the media, thinking a lot of people will now doubt him (not that he seems to be the most stable and wonderful candidate). There is no burden of proof, no rules of evidence and no opportunity to confront the accusers. Th...

re: State Police suspend ticket-writing program amid internal review - dinosaur
I agree, but some are worse than others. Also, with the pretrial diversion money, it only goes to the DA, not any sort of parish wide or other local government. I think it is a shame that this program, that had good intentions at the beginning, has become abused. It shows that even law enforceme...

re: State Police suspend ticket-writing program amid internal review - dinosaur
It isn't LACE that is the root of the problem, but the DA being able to keep all of the pretrial diversion money. The DA's office hires the troopers and don't care about the hours so long as they write enough tickets. This is a profit center for some district attorneys. Some abuse it, some do ...

re: Why do old conservatives get mad when you tell them that SSI is welfare - dinosaur
I feel your pain but a few misconceptions run through this thread. First I never expected to ever see a social security check. But I paid the tax for nearly 50 years now and it now seems I may get one. Hang in there. The benefits won't go away but will eventually be so little with inflation that t...

re: Signs (aka facts) Point to a Collapse - dinosaur
We all believe what we want, but to me, I think the defensive breakdowns are correctable, especially once we get a couple of the linemen back. Offense, on the other hand, looks really bad. The offensive scheme seems quite limited and the team seems unable to come back from any real deficit. 37 p...

re: After sleeping on the game for a few days - dinosaur
I pretty much agree with you but I think that the coaches have a responsibility to insure that the players don't make stupid mistakes and that the players can adjust to what the other guys are doing. This team looks like some of the Stovall teams (good enough to win the conference one year and mist...

re: Harvey ***Catastrophic Flooding Event*** - dinosaur
The Harvey name will probably be retired after this. I can't see any outcome where some area isn't nearly washed away. In south Texas, lives will be marked as before Harvey and after Harvey. This thing is going to be terrible. FEMA needs to get in gear on this one....

Well, I am diabetic, so near sighted that I would probably have qualified as blind a long time ago, had a heart cath and a ruptured appendix. So I guess I would have found out what was on the other side by now....

re: At Don Jr. meeting was a FUSION GPS employee...Lynch Tapped Phones!!! - dinosaur
Not trying to be difficult but I don't understand. First, I thought this was a face to face meeting, so who cares if a phone was tapped? Second, I thought FISA warrants were aimed at foreign nationals thought to have ties to terrorism. Why let this woman into the country if her phone was tapped a...
