Re: “Dickson Street

For those who remember the "real" Dickson Street the current strip is a disgusting shadow of its former funky self. "They" didn't "Keep Fayettevile Funky," and with a $6 million overpriced parking garage and the prospect of an enlarged Walmart Art Center, there will be more rich people, higher prices and lots more cars mixing with the drunk pedestrians. It's time to leave. My friend Dubie says "Put the Dick back in Dickson Street," and while I agree with the sentiment I think there's not enough Viagra in the world for that dysfunctional business district to ever get it up again.

Re: “Handicapped faced with long walk to get to state Capitol on weekends

There's a great lawyer in Birmingham named Ed Zwilling who does ADA litigation for a living. He's won several lawsuits in NWA against some high-profile defendants, including the Walton Arts Center, the UA, the NWA Reg Planning Commission, and the Clinton House Museum!

Re: “Actor George Takei takes on Trump

Let's have a "burn-in" on the front steps of the capitol! While we're at it we can burn photos of Rapert, Hester, Cotton, et. al.

Re: “Lawmakers respect voters, except when they don't: See marijuana

Once they start getting donations from the cannabis industry, they'll change their tune.

All this faux outrage will go up in smoke.

Pot legalization will be the next big culture war battle, and the GOP will lose as they always do. And then the next election you won't hear a peep about it, some will even claim they were for it all along. (Some GOP are legalization supporters, but only the hard-core libertarians.)

Trump will be under growing pressure to move pot off Schedule 1 list (thanks for nothing, Obama!), and he will face major opposition either way he goes. So far he has stood with the hard-line drug warriors, saying he'll reverse Obama's non-enforcement in states where it's legal.

Libs kept quiet when Obama --a former pot smoker himself-- refused to do the right thing on rescheduling. But as so many states are legalizing, Trump will have a backlash on his hands if he starts prosecuting people who have operated freely for several years.

Moreover, there is now a rapidly expanding industry with a lot of money to spend on political campaigns. 2018 and 2020 will be exciting elections on many levels, but the pot factor will be front and center as never before unless Trump goes pro-pot.

Re: “Huckabee: Offered Trump administration spot, not 'right fit'

Trump could appoint Huckabee as White House Special Adviser for Spiritual and Scientific Affairs. Then rent him an office on K Street.

Re: “Arkansan a winner in 2017 Rhodes Scholarship competition

Cato,

I understand your wanting to brag on your son, but for many of us who care about the environment and human rights, it's hardly something to brag about that your kid supported the construction and approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, and that he makes big bucks working for Monsanto, one of the greatest corporate offenders in the history of agriculture.

My point is, I'm not a bit impressed, and I'd be ashamed and embarrassed if a kid of mine had done what your kid has done/ is doing.

Re: “Tuesday: An open line and the daily news video

Jamie Harrison is a reverse carpetbagger from the South to DC. Worked for Podesta!

We don't need more of the same. A black face does not a long-overdue revolution make. To wit, Obama. If you want a person of color there are many who are not tainted by the slime of Wall Street dollars and corporate insider lobbyists. To wit, Ellison or Turner.

Think outside the box, all you aging, Clinton Democrats. Did you not learn anything from last Tuesday? That old horse ain't running and you can't fix it by just painting its face. There are some new horses in town and they're ready for a long, hard race against the fascists.

#CleanHouse at Democrat Central!

Re: “County groups seek priority for mental health

We can only hope that King Trump will overplay his hand (trump cards!?) and mobilize the marginalized. That requires cleaning house at Democratic Party Central.

Out with the Clintonistas, out with Pelosi, Schumer, and the Wall Street gang!

Why is Vince Insalaco still head of the Ark Dems anyway?
