While discussing the lavish spending for the LSP trip to San Diego for an awards ceremony, the topic of nepotism came up. I remember once saying "Without nepotism on a large scale, the great sovereign State of Louisiana would slide off into the Gulf of Mexico!"
Another agency that spent lavishly on itself for a training seminar is the IRS. Trey Gowdy had some pointed remarks on that event here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dFpam0IMbc

I think this is related to the issue of COMPULSORY attendance of public schools.

California is letting Jerry Brown off the hook for the Oroville dam fiasco on the basis of Global Warming. Here are a few of my thoughts on that topic. Includes a quasi-humorous(?) summary:
Oh well, that is the sum total of my remarks for the 2/22/17 show.
