  1. 5-5-16, Scoot 3pm, State Worker Raises


    Thu, 5 May 2016

    The State is broke so Gov. Edwards wants to suspend state worker raises – is that fair? State workers are eligible for raises up to 4% a year, but if the state is in deep debt should the pay raises be granted? Do you get an annual raise where you work? If everyone has to “do their part” as the Governor said shouldn’t State workers be a part of that equation?

  2. Scoot Show 210pm, Suspended State Raises


    Thu, 5 May 2016

    Governor John Bel Edwards wants to suspend raises to state employees because of the state’s budget crisis. Is that fair to state workers? State workers are eligible to receive raises up to 4% a year based on a positive annual job evaluation. Yesterday – the Civil Service Commission voted 5-2 to delay the decision until June. The state is broke and in debt – should state employees get raises? What happens when your company is not doing well? Do your employers give raises anyway? If you own or operate a business, what’s your practice when the economy is down or the company has a lull or a dip? Should workers, who enjoy raises & benefits of a business when it’s doing well, also feel some of the pain when the business is suffering? Have you dealt with a state office or state employees recently? What was the experience like? Poll: Should state workers with a good job evaluation get a raise?

  3. Scoot Show 110pm, Donald Trump


    Thu, 5 May 2016

    On today’s show: Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee – attention turns to who he should select as his vice presidential running mate. Who should he choose? Should he pick a woman? Should he pick a Hispanic? Should he pick an African-American? These are all questions being asked by a team of advisors that reportedly includes Dr. Ben Carson, his daughter Ivanka & Chris Christie.) . Some names that have been mentioned: Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico – female – Hispanic ...Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina – popular female...Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey... former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani...Gov. John Kasich of Ohio. When candidates select running mates – they often consider who will balance the ticket – who will attract voters they are less popular with. But shouldn’t the VP choice be solely based on who could take over the office of the president in the event something happens to the president? What criteria should Trump use? Who would you choice for VP be? If you dislike Trump – would any selection change your mind about voting for Donald Trump? Poll: Who do you think would make a good choice for Trump’s VP running mate? (Chris Christie, John Kasich, Rudy Giuliani, Susana Martinez, Nikki Haley, other)

  4. Scoot Show 310pm, Donald Trump


    Wed, 4 May 2016

    On today’s show: AND THEN THERE WAS ONE ….after the results of the Indiana primary Ted Cruz and now John Kasich have both dropped from the GOP race…leaving Donald Trump to be the parties eventual nominee. If you’re a Republican voter are you excited for your party? Does Trump signify a change in the GOP ‘old guard’ or does he signal the end of the party? PLUS: Bernie Sanders win’s in Indiana and says he will continue fighting for the Democratic nomination. Is that a smart move on his part? Can he convince some super delegates to switch sides to him…can he run the table to keep Hillary from getting the nomination? Is he hurting Hillary Clinton’s chances in the general election is she becomes the nominee? Do you think the Democratic leaders should ask him to drop for the good of the party?
