Re: “Senate defeats resolutions on amendments to prohibit same-sex marriage and ban abortion

Kathy, what we need is an Arkansas constitutional amendment that states that any member of the legislature who writes a bill and votes for a bill found unconstitutional is personally responsible for the costs. RAPERt cost the state (that's you and me) $99,0-00 that the state had to write on a check to the Arkansas ACLU for his last abortion bill.

If this is too personal for our small-minds in the legislature, take it from the GIF funds and, if necessary, claw back money from previous spending or them personally.

This foolishness needs to stop. It took a two generations to live down 1957 and RAPERt and his religionist minions want to take us back to 1890.

Re: “Hutchinson touts government 'transformation.' But is less more?

Government by committee. Then if you don't take up their suggestions, no one is mad. Same reason to use "consultants" except they get paid whether you agree with their recommendations or not. Expect nothing good out of a group hand-selected and including Griffin. Wasn't
Leathers formerly of AR DFA (name is familar)?

We have to support Sweden after they came to our support after Bowling Green and Atlanta.

Re: “Following the GIF scandal in Northwest Arkansas

There is a need for forensic accounting by the state DFA accountants or the job may be done by the FBI's white collar crime accountants with a lot of lawmakers going to jail. The whole GIF web rings like a RICO case with money moving through 2 or 3 hands before it gets to where they want it, in violation of the state law.

Re: “Another city, another fight over a city-blighting freeway project

Our road building agency is just a highway department, forget that "transportation" phrase. Roads are all they know to do and, of course, there is a very large business community waiting for the money to shower down upon them so when they go home to their fancy home in the suburbs, they won't have to meet the people they just screwed.

Re: “Open line, plus violence around the state and the search for the Tom Cotton town hall

CNN is reporting Monday morning:

"Craig Deare was removed from his role as a senior adviser at the National Security Council's Western Hemisphere division Friday and "sent back to his original position," said Sarah Sanders, a White House spokeswoman. Deare had been assigned to the NSC by the Trump administration.

Deare reportedly knocked the Trump administration's handling of Latin American policies during a speech at The Wilson Center Thursday in Washington. He also criticized overall White House dysfunction, Politico reported based on a source."

In the Trump White House, actually knowing what you are talking about isn'tma job requirement and in fact, hurts your job prospects immediately but then staying and playing their games, hurts your future job chances.

Re: “More objections to the bathroom bill from Buffalo River businessman

Well written, Mr. Mills. Probably won't stop the small-minded legislators we have.

If they run it through to suit their Hate-Masters of the so-call un-Family Council, maybe the NCAA will pull all home games from UAF in all sports. Maybe that would get some attention and also eliminate the need for the next three stadium expansions for a 7-5 foosball team.
