    Re: Post Race!

    There was that racing going on a couple years ago when people thought they could take the top spot. At the time I suggested that was a hill to steep to climb for no reward. I think people have realized just how hard it is to come up with 7,000 plus posts of nonsensical drivel.

    I've become active in my local Libertarian caucus and I'm creating a website that can really impact our reach in Louisiana.

    I'm also attending a local LGBT+ pride gathering that allows various groups/individuals to setup tables. I'm trying to make a "Libertarians supported equal marriage since its inception in 1972" schpiel.

    Speaking as a DBA that's a bad idea. You really should be limiting access to the ability to issue DDL commands.

    I'm trying to make a "Libertarians supported equal marriage since its inception in 1972" schpiel.
    But it's great that equijoins are fully supported.

    Your tables should have primary keys. I suggest a big cardboard key with a GUID written on it. Most people won't get it, but those who do will certainly approach you.

    Actually, I'd guess that PETA is on board with spay/neuter. I don't have any first hand knowledge either way, but it seems like something they'd back rather than fight, as it reduces the number of unwanted/neglected/abused animals.

    No, that's where they harness puppies up to miniature plows and make them till the fields.

    Similar to a puppy mill? Harness the pups and make them drive that big stone wheel crushing wheat for use in making hot dog buns?

    Things are a bit slow this morning. I just did a lap around the office. I'm the only person from our group that is here today. Should have worked from home, as I had originally planned. Vacations and training seem to have gobbled up everybody else. Got both out of the way earlier.

    May 23rd was the RD post prior to your new posts today. Post Race has become Post Rest.

    Louisiana has faced a budget crisis nearly every other years since 2007, in part because Gov. Jindal sold some big settlements that fluffed the budget at the time and now we're paying for it.

    Also in part because the Louisiana constitution doesn't allow for cuts to too much of our budget.

    I'm thinking about running on 3 core issues:
    • Reforming government employees retirement and/or pay
    • Eliminate the corporate tax
    • Repeal the prohibition on cannabis

    Government employees should be subject to the same taxes/tax rules and retirement age as employees in private sector get.

    Good luck! Need non-insiders running for office at all levels - the swamp is in each state capital - not just DC!

    Eliminate the corporate tax

    According to the most recent (2015 - 2016) Louisiana annual tax collection report (http://revenue.louisiana.gov/Publica...AR(15-16).pdf), the tax collected was $188.7m (pg. 28). The number of businesses with a tax liability is 12,447 (pg. 30) or 12.31% of businesses. This would mean that the average amount that a business paid in corporate income taxes was $15,160. I would much rather see that tax burden be replaced with better job opportunities.

    That is a small amount of revenue with the matching burden against too few entities.
