re: Question: At what point did all forms of media drop any pretense of objectivity... - BigJim
Oddly enough I think Fox News made things worse. Before Fox most outlets were center left. They leaned left but at least tried to keep conservatives watching/reading. After Fox grabbed the right market, other outlets lurched left to fight over the remaining market of leftists. ...

re: So tax payers paid for vaccine development, and we’re paying for the shots to be given... - BigJim
[quote]Maybe the shot is not for Covid but for the next virus . Think about how fast the great reset would happen if they killed off everyone who refuses to obey their every demand . The problem is that some of their own sheep are scared of the shot. The Covid vaccine is already effecting people who...

re: What % of our federal government could be cut? - BigJim
Very little. The majority of spending is entitlements. You can't just cut that in the budget, it requires a separate change the reduce (or eliminate) the entitlement. And there is no real world scenario where you cut Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid. That just isn't going to happen. Bes...

re: Another day in your "conservative" LA House... - BigJim
[quote]Intellectually dishonest much? That’s not how it works.[/quote] Ignorant much? Yes it is. Direct funds to colleges were cut. Tuition went up, it but so did TOPS. Funds shifted from general support of college institutions to college students. When the media and liberals complain a...

re: Another day in your "conservative" LA House... - BigJim
[quote]So we would be the only state in the country that doesn't fund colleges? Because I assume you would want to eliminate funding for LSU, LaTech, etc. Since higher education isn't owed to anyone and is a drain on the budget in your view.[/quote] [quote]No, I said get rid of TOPS. The taxpay...

re: Another day in your "conservative" LA House... - BigJim
[quote]TOPS needs to be gone. The Taxpayers of Louisiana do not owe a secondary education to its residents. It is a huge drain on the budget and needs to be eliminated.[/quote] First, secondary education usually refers to middle and high school. I assume you meant college. That clarified... ...

re: Another day in your "conservative" LA House... - BigJim
Agree with the OP on the budget moving through the process. Really disagree with the TOPS hate. TOPS shifted us from an institution based funding model to, at least in part, a student based funding model. Institution budgets got cut and tuition went up. If you qualified for TOPS you got to go...
