  3. 10-6 The Think Tank 1210pm, BP Settlement


    Tue, 6 Oct 2015

    Louisiana gets $9 BILLION in the BP settlement, but how much will be used to benefit American oil? We may be forced to use hundreds of millions of those dollars to pay for improvements to a two lane highway, that is the only route for almost 20% of America’s oil. Is that fair? Should Louisiana continue to be America’s energy doormat? Are you in favor of using some of the BP settlement money to pay for highway improvements that were not properly budgeted?

  4. 10-6 The Think Tank 1110am, Bombing in Syria


    Tue, 6 Oct 2015

    Were U.S. air strikes that bombed a hospital in Afghanistan warranted? Did American warplanes kill 22 people in an Afghan hospital, many of them members of “Doctors Without Borders?” Aid groups want an independent (not Washington) investigation. Were innocent people & the hospital collateral damage or did it fall victim of a reckless bombing? When did we get to the point where government can’t be trusted to admit to killing the wrong people? And, if America was responsible for the airstrike that killed 22 people in an Afghan hospital, what should be done?
