Re: “New poll: 'GOP leads ticket in Arkansas'

eLwood, I agree with your facts regarding out of power party and midterm elections. Is that what is being shown with this poll, or is it an actual shift of power in Arkansas?

Re: “Arkansas State defends removal of cross decals from football helmets; but players may choose to have them

Football uniforms should have no signs of personal speech or religion. They should be, well.....uniform. If I were the coach, the crosses wouldn't be up for discussion because all players would have the EXACT SAME UNIFORM. No crosses, no smiley faces, no little hearts. I even understand the coaches that don't allow the players' names. The name is Arkansas State. The uniform comes without stickers except the one with the Red Wolf.

Re: “Love Obamacare, hate Obama: Kentucky story fits in Arkansas

Sorry Citizen, that was not the side of the economic impact I was talking about. I am for everyone having healthcare, and have already bought into the long term savings of preventive care. I was referring to the cash flow burden created by the hundreds of thousands of people who now have insurance. As eLwood states, the ACA has cost and revenue built in. I was wondering why we don't hear if these constraints and sources are working and balanced. That test is a factor in discussing whether this has truly been a "success."

Your "SQUIREL" and "slacker" comments seem to have come from nowhere.

Re: “Love Obamacare, hate Obama: Kentucky story fits in Arkansas

As a Libertarian who finds himself in the middle on this subject, I believe the posts over the months have missed a point that is the true division between the parties on this subject. Max, again and again, posts that the ACA is a success by touting the decline in the uninsured. I, too, hope that all Americans have or get health insurance. However, the success of the program depends on both the number or Americans receiving health insurance, AND the controlled costs of that service. I don't see much written here about the costs or the financial burden and its impact.

Social Security divides in much the same way. It is great that it has provided funds to retired Americans, but the criticism comes from the financial sustainability of the program. That is why the politicians are cautious on Obamacare. Who wants healthcare and retirement funds for all? "I do. I do." Who wants to explain its economic impact and costs....? Crickets.

Re: “Huckabee pulled political strings to get beach home permitted

Terry seems to have pull with the DEP, and did so before Huckabee came to town. He just made the mistake of going high profile. They've come a long way from that downtown double wide they had in LR!

Re: “What price football at Arkansas State University?

I watched the 9-11 ceremony on the tube this morning. The first to speak was the Army Chaplain. I didn't hear what he said because I was preoccupied with thoughts of the reaction that the Arkansas Times bloggers would have when they realized that their tax dollars were paying his salary!!!
