Ok... I don't have a problem with prayer rallys. Just thinking there might've been a way
to get some volunteers maybe, considering budget cuts and all.

LSU prayer rally cost taxpayers $10,289 for state police OT - KTBS.com - Shreveport, LA News, Weather and Sports

This is a non-issue to me. The State Police protect the governor wherever he goes and the governor is the governor wherever he is. You don't volunteer security, and security personnel lawfully responsible for protecting the governor shouldn't have to work for free.

How much did the state spend to protect Al Sharpton and his lackeys when he came here in support of those " Jena - 6 " thugs ? What about Farrakhon's visit in 2013 ? Want to talk about welfare fraud ? Medicare/Medicaid ? How about FEMA fraud after Katrina ? Let's talk about REAL waste .

Welfare fraud and those other little talking points favored by the GOP are miniscule in comparison to the millions of dollars oil and gas gets in welfare. You whine about the little money given to people to eat but have nothing to say about corporate welfare.

You are not even relevant.

Money given to people to eat ? Way to muddy the waters , dude . You always leap at the chance to drag the Republicans into the fray . Go ahead and talk about corporate welfare and tell us why it still exists . Why hasn't your Dictator in Chief used his Executive powers to put an end to it ? He's never hesitated to exceed his authority when it could benefit him or his party . Why not this ? He had his chance with an all Democratic majority and nothing substantial came from it except ObamaCare and amnesty for future Democrats from south of the border . Corporate welfare isn't even on the radar and you know it . Unless you count the Sunday morning talk shows . Talk about not being relevant . Good try . Well , not really .

Before you fire back with some witty response , first look up how much money Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffet got in corporate welfare . You remember him . Good friend of Obama and all that . Just one of many examples . Is that a " little talking point " too ?

It's too easy, when they are already there. I don't have to drag them anywhere.

Exceed authority how exactly. Executive orders? Wouldn't have to do that with a Republican congress blocking everything from veterans bills to jobs bills. But they're trying to push a pipeline that's proven to be dangerous and only provide 35 jobs. Please tell me where the logic is.

The democrats held the senate for 4 months.

Was Regan's amnesty ok to you? I'm sure you praised it.

Corporate welfare is on the radar and on the dinner table. What the heck do you think the $1.6b deficit comes from? You believe whatever Jindal says...blame his failed policies on everyone but himself.

Look up how much Shell, Chevron, Exxon-Mobile, etc get. Look how much money those GOP backed corporations have stashed overseas so they don't have to pay taxes.

Ah here we go again talking politics in a forum titled "Louisiana".

No wonder this forum is inactive, no meaningful discussion about enjoying Louisiana.

If I wanted to see people arguing then I will watch the professionals on MSNBC and Fox News!
