  • Impeach Chris Piazza? Look who's talking

    Some elements of the Arkansas legislature Crackpot Caucus emerged Saturday to talk of impeaching Pulaski Circuit Judge Chris Piazza for his ruling striking down the state ban on same-sex marriage. It would be easy to laugh this off as meaningless political posturing except that it comes from towering hypocrites who illustrate oa broad disrespect for the rule of the law in the new Republican majority. If a legislative majority impeaches every judge who issues an unpopular decision, do we really need the judicial branch of government?

Re: “UPDATE: Lt. Gov. Mark Darr commutes today by State Police

The illegality of his actions is too apparent to warrant comment. His sense of self-importance, stupidity, and immaturity are worthy fodder, however. To that end: In the not-so-great State of Arkansas, what arrangement of personal affairs constitutes an "illegal husband and wife?" Were they two gay men, one in drag, who married in a more equality-oriented state? The opposite? Two lesbians, similarly hitched, one claiming to be "Mr" and one "Mrs?" Or perhaps the LG is an ill-spoken, self-serving, hypocritical, criminal prig? Yes. That must be it.

Re: “Education? High school good enough to lead Game and Fish at $118,000 a year

So this high school graduate is such a mover and shaker that he was part of the good old boy network? Amazing that as soon as one of the "downtrodden" you alleged liberals champion "makes good" your elitist instincts spew forth. How about a little atta boy for this guy who has obviously WORKED his way to the top, as opposed to those who steep in academia for a prescribed amount of debt - er, I mean, time - and then get a supposedly meaningful piece of paper from people who've never even gotten muck on their boots.

Re: “Occupy Tim Griffin

@ TheBusDriver - Enron. Can you say "Enron?" That's where the current round of corporate-screwing of pensioners started. The hedge-fund/credit-default-swap creating henchmen of Wall Street - Masters of the Universe, they like to call themselves - started the bleeding of pensioners and the destruction of our economy then. You are the hypocrite. Blaming Obama and unions - which have been losing members and strength for decades - for the bailouts/TARP/etc. which were created while GWB was in office. It is the GOP and their all-powerful, all-ecompassing love of money - even fake, created-out-of-thin-air bubble money - who are the ones to blame. They of the you-should-never-have-to-offset-the-costs-of-giving-taxpayers-their-money-back who now claim the middle class tax cut must be "paid for." As for class warfare...the depths of your willful ignorance is amazing. After decades of wage stagnation while the top income brackets soared, their tax rates dropped and the system was skewed in their favor... NOW it's class warfare? What of the billions in corporate welfare? Are you in favor of the billions in subsidies taxpayer give to highly-profitable corporations? oh, and, BTW - Mr. Best-Paid-Bus-Driver-on-the-Planet-If-You-Are-a-1%er - where are the jobs created by the past 11 years of tax cuts for the top wage earners? Huh? Where are they?

Re: “Occupy Tim Griffin

I'm defensive of Hughes? Hardly. Never met the man. I'm non-union, too. In fact, I've never worked at a union job in my life. (GM is being publicly-traded, once again, BTW.) Of course facts are inconvenient to your type. 99% = earns over $1 million per year. Period. You just don't like it because it doesn't fit your world view as seen through Koch-colored glasses.

Re: “Occupy Tim Griffin

I am sure Mr. Hughes is indeed a 99%er. 99%ers are those who earn less than $1,000,000.00 per year. Besides, who would begrudge any hard-working American purchasing a luxury car made by an American-owned automobile company? (Well, actually, you would, obviously.) The Occupy movement is not about begrudging success nor eschewing material comforts. It is about fairness, an equal playing field, and opportunity for all living, breathing, flesh-and-blood Americans. (And, specifically, it is about excluding corporate-persons.) Snark is only snarky when it's based in fact.

Re: “Jim Keet's legal problems

The seemingly numerous tax foibles of Keet will do nothing to discourage his supporters. Tax evasion/avoidance is acceptable to those whose rallying cry is "Taxed Enough Already!" The statements such actions make about his lack of personal responsibility, abiding by the law of the land, and good citizenship are meaningless to the party of Palin, Limbaugh, Beck, et al. Those rules only apply to "those people" - aka poor and/or non-white, non-evangelical (evangelicals can always ask for forgiveness on Sunday, non-evangelicals are almost as bad as muslims) and/or citizens who are against the endless slate of neo-con wars.
