re: Looks like JBE is going to veto the budget - Topcat
What happens if he vetoes the budget and the legislature does not pass a new one in the special session? Does that mean all funding is shut down or are there certain departments that will keep operating? Is no budget as dire as it sounds or is the shutdown limited? I for one would like to see ...

re: Time for the La. legislature to start cutting. - Topcat
The state budget reportedly has gone up 20% in two years, from $25B to $30B. Why not adopt the 2016 budget? It passed constitutional muster then, and would leave us a surplus now. Inflation from 2016 - 2018 is 5%. Adjust the 2016 budget, with 5% spending increases across the board, and we st...

re: Apparently Tiger fans haven't gotten the boycott football memo - Topcat
College sports may have reached a turning point when it comes to attendance at games. LSU may have mistimed its latest expansion, not because of the quality on the field, but because of trends in sports viewing. The average LSU fan could make a list of reasons not to attend that didn’t exist in the...

re: Schumer wants Shutdown - Topcat
I'm glad Trump cares more for the welfare of the country than media optics and is trying to bring some sanity to our immigration policy. Wouldn't it be nice if Democrats pursued policies that benefit the country rather than policies they perceive to benefit their party? ...

re: Government Shutdown Day 3 - (Cloture Vote at Noon) - Topcat
The threat by the Democrats to shut down the government reminds me of the scene in Blazing Saddles where the sheriff tells the crowd to stop or he'll shoot the . . . https://coxrare.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/abart.jpg Why would the party of small government cave to the threat of the party o...

re: The "I want the AG to enforce the law" meme - Topcat
That's weak. The Congress makes the law, not the AG. If you want weed to be legal or states to say whether it is legal, pressure your Congressmen. We don't want the AG deciding which laws to enforce or not to enforce--that leads to inconsistency in enforcement and the lawlessness of the Obama adm...

Which would make a worse senator?

I don't ...
