Re: “Justice Department takes look at Arkansas's 'Muslim-free" gun range

What a hoot. First, at the time of her attention seeking announcement, it was that she had made such an extensive self-guided study of the Qur'an and found it to be a text that advocated violence against those not of the faith.

Now, she's had years of death threats.

I posit that she's her own worst enemy...

Re: “Law professor: Religion 'fix' bill not a complete fix

Question...I cannot find the answer to this.

Was HB 1228 withdrawn by the sponsor? Or is it still on Hutchinson's desk? All everyone has to do is ignore it if it wasn't killed by some process, and it becomes law.

And then we have a real nice mess.

Re: “Harrises ended adoption process of third girl via DHS prior to eventual "rehoming" of two younger sisters

One of the broadcast media news pieces I watched yesterday (KARK) clearly stated that the Director of DHS made the threat of child abandonment charges.

I call BS there. I have known John Selig professionally for a lot of years. He and I have cussed and discussed many things. We vehemently disagreed on many of those things. But John Selig would never, ever threaten a state legislator with charges of abandoning a child when said legislator came to him with pleas for help, or a request to relinquish that child back to DHS custody.

If nothing else, John is just way more politically savvy than that.

Re: “AETN plans Thursday night broadcast of Downton Abbey

This happens every time there is snow or ice, but oddly, not during pledge drives. AETN's Facebook page was crawling with irate viewers, myself included. I do not have cable, I use a digital antenna.

And during those pledge drives, AETN lambastes other networks, who manage to keep their signals going, absent catastrophic events like massive power failures.

AETN's response to all the FB commenters was to send them to to watch. So instead of marketing the shows we can watch on during pledge drives, it seems to me AETN should be asking for pledges to upgrade the KETS antenna in Redfield, or hire some techies who can handle these winter storms.

I mean seriously, if I can just watch at PBS, why do I need AETN at all?

Re: “UPDATE: Gov. Hutchinson firm on allowing gay discrimination bill to become law

Well, I for one will not be spending any of my cash at businesses that publicly decide to jump on this hateful bandwagon.

I'll sign any petition, but it seems to me that we would need to hit this kind of crap in its pocketbook. A lot of these pseudo-Christian business owners care very much about their bottom lines. Let's see if they care enough.

Re: “The illegal ID notation from Mark Martin: Election commission responds

There are people with disabilities all over this state who do not have a photo ID. They have ID, but not one with a photo.

Your birth certificate is ID. It's not photo ID.
