  • Outsourcing state government

    As a citizen, I don't get to choose not to pay taxes because I don't like what the Arkansas state government is spending state and federal money on, such as paying a Chinese company, Sun Paper, approximately $1 billion to build a paper mill in Clark County.

Conflict of Interest Office at UAMS, and UAMS College of Medicine strictly prohibit this sort of thing, or anything related.

Re: “President-elect Trump claims without evidence that massive voter fraud kept him from popular vote win

Lies, promises, truth, all out the window in the 'hey, its just business, ok' world to believers.

The Electoral College will elect a businessman, and caveat emptor

These came to mind when thinking about family businesses, conflicts, evictions, segregated rentals, hidden tax returns, bankruptcies, threats to prosecute, self dealing, and 'lock her up'.......

Michael Corleone: It's not personal. It's strictly business.
&
Trust me. That's all I can tell you about my business.

Michael:Now, we're talking business. Let's talk business.
Moe Greene: Yeah, let's talk business, Mike.

Kay: Michael, is it true?
Michael: [pauses] Don't ask me about my business, Kay.
Kay: Is it true?
Michael: Don't ask me about my business.
Kay: No!
Michael: [slaps the desk] ENOUGH!!! [calms down] Alright. This one time...this one time, I'll let you ask me about my affairs.
Kay: Is it true? Is it?
Michael: No.
[Kay smiles and walks into his arms]
Kay: I guess we both need a drink, huh? C'mon...
[Kay goes to the kitchen to fix a drink, and as she does, Peter Clemenza, Rocco Lampone, and Al Neri enter Michael's office]
[Clemeza shakes Michael's hand, embraces him, then kisses his hand]
Clemenza: Don Corleone.
[Lampone kisses Michael's hand, and Neri shuts the door in Kay's face]

Like Putin, Kim Jung Un, Castro, he expected 99% of the vote w/ 100% reported turnout. Anything else is rigged. And he is used to rigged results.
In casinos, the house sets the odds, and the house always wins.

Re: “This is not fake news: Advocacy of child labor in background of Education secretary pick

Re cited article

"Whatever else you want to say about this, its an exciting life. You can talk about the dangers of coal mining or selling newspapers on the streeT"

What a jump- football and gymnastics equated to coal mining and excited children! My father in law at age 15 went down to mine pit face coal. All the older males in the family died of blacklung/ pneumonoconiosis and it was accepted as a way of life. Kids working is not equal to child labor.

The first child protection actions were based on laws to stop animal cruelty. Is this where we are going?
