  • No longer a referendum on Obama

    A truism of American presidential politics is that elections involving an incumbent standing for reelection are driven almost entirely by voters' analyses of the performance of that president.

  • Obamacare (Romneycare) off the table

    Poor Rick Santorum could only shrug in frustration when he complained in the Florida debate about the supreme irony of the 2012 presidential race: Republicans made President Obama vulnerable two years ago by demonizing his health-insurance reforms and now they are about to nominate one of two men who cannot effectively use the issue against him.

He took the 5th? Really?

Re: “Mosaic Church celebrates its 15th anniversary

It was my privilege to get to know some of these when I tried to represent one of the young mothers being assisted by Mosaic. The case didn't work out for any of a number of reasons. But I was greatly impressed by the care and support given my client by the advocates that work there.

They are truly doing the work of the Lord over there!

Re: “Rep. Bob Ballinger faces home foreclosure for fifth time

The likely reason the bank has refused to accept payment is because it has accelerated the account and declared the whole note due and payable. If they don't want to accept anything less than that they don't have to.

That's what happens when you get foreclosed on.

Re: “Baton Rouge shooter declared himself a 'sovereign citizen'

I used to have to deal with those lunatics all of the time back in the day. My question then and now-or one of them anyway-is if the government has no jurisdiction over you, why file something in Court to that effect?

I could go on and on.....

Re: “Roundabout coming on Fair Park Boulevard; City Board also to hear from Johnny Key

A traffic circle (Sorry. Spent too much time in Louisiana.) at that intersection? This ought to produce a major cluster.

Re: “Darren McFadden sues financial advisers, alleges $15 million in losses

The problem with these guys is that instead of taking Earl's advise and saving for the long term they get enamored of the quick hit and get talked into investing in risky business ventures or stock market schemes. Also, Uncle and every state they play in takes a pretty good chunk of each paycheck they are entitled to. So, of purposes of easy math, that 1 million a year becomes $600,000 take home. Which is still a lot of money as long as you are making prudent investments with somebody not your cousin, don't own 6 cars and two homes, don't need a lot of bling and clothes and are not paying child support to 3 different women.

Also, these guys don't get paid in the off-season. Which comes as a big shock to some of these knuckleheads. It was a big adjustment for me when I retired fairly young. But I had a pension and investments. Imagine being through at 30, with no money, no degree and no transferable skills. It never occurs to a lot of these guys that they won't be young forever.

It's sad but entirely preventable.
