    Thu, 3 Sep 2015

    We look down on those European welfare states right? Well, a major think tank says 35 states in America are bigger welfare state than Europe! If Louisiana is one, do you want to give the money back, if it’s government money? After all the talk about how much better Europeon welfare states are compared to those of the U.S. Cato has a report to the contrary. 35 U.S. states offer a more generous benefit package than those of Europe.

  3. 9-2 The Think Tank 1210pm, Corps of Engineers

    Wed, 2 Sep 2015

    How much faith do you have in the Army Corps of Engineers? So the Corps of Engineers totally ignored Congress’s order to foot the entire bill for the restoration of the MRGO. A federal judge ruled that the Corps refused to obey their boss (Congress) and instead tried to force Louisianans to pay $1 billion of the reclamation costs. This is the crew we trust to protect us? Do you trust the Army Corp to protect us?

    Is the fight to end the war on drugs a losing battle? The fight to end the war on drugs is growing exponentially. Members of the organization “Law Enforcement Against Prohibition” are regularly appearing before Congress and the mass media (even Dr. Oz). Can the 100,000+ worldwide memberships end the war, or is legalization too threatening to special interest industries?
