Re: “Another bill to stock the prisons

These tough on crime clowns always conveniently forget to tell their MAGA-hatter constituents that the vast majority of all incarcerated persons will eventually be released back into society, so by all means lets see if we can make them even more unemployable, desperate & violent.

& increase what tax-payers spend to make it all happen.

Re: “Senate Education committee rejects bills to require transparency in charter schools

There was a time when meaningful oversight regarding the use of public money for a quasi-private purpose would be a bi-partisan issue but that was before MAGA!

Hey R's, how's the swamp draining going?

Re: “Midweek open line

Well heart disease, stroke, Type II diabetes, morbid obesity, opioid addiction, smoking related lung cancer, move the hell over!

rKen$aw's best & brightest in the legislature, the same one's who have decriminalized gambling machines (& damn near criminalized enforcement of the state's anti-gambling law) but have worked overtime to sink medical weed, have discovered the number 1 health crisis facing our state:

"Porn Declared Public Health Crisis by Lawmakers"

"A panel of lawmakers unanimously pass a resolution Wednesday declaring pornography a public health crisis.

The bill cites an array of individual and community problems that proponents say are associated with pornography, including sex trafficking and child exploitation.

A supporter for the bill, a former adult film actress, testified in front of the committee warning about the negative impacts of that and other industries.

"The pornography industry, strip clubs, hooters and all forms of exploitation pray upon the vulnerable," said Jessica Neeley, an adult film actress.

The resolution is non binding, but does encourage the state to seek education, prevention, research and policy change to reverse problems associated with pornography."

Re: “Midweek open line

Apparently Drumpf (don't) Care simply will not result in the deaths of enough Americans to satisfy the House Krazy Kaucus so they are voting agin' it.

"House Freedom Caucus Chair: Not Enough Votes to Pass GOP Health Care Bill"

"House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows said Wednesday that there are enough Freedom members to kill the GOP health care bill and that a vote should be postponed.

Meadows met with members of the conservative caucus, which is staunchly opposed to the GOP health care plan, in the afternoon as Republican leaders scramble to assemble enough party line support to pass their replacement measure in a floor vote expected Thursday.

"A self imposed deadline doesn't necessarily make for good policy," Meadows told reporters after the meeting.

"We believe we need to postpone the vote and get it right," Meadows added. "We need changes to the underlying bill before we vote on it in the House. ... There's not enough votes to pass it tomorrow."

However, a senior GOP aide told NBC News that there are no plans to delay the vote beyond Thursday."

Re: “Arkansas Tech settles dispute with lawmakers riled by 'Sex on the Lawn'

"...a sex education program by LGBT students at Tech upset several people..."

As rKen$aw, a subsidiary of the NRA, wants to push penis-substitute guns into kindergarten classes. No damn wonder Wal-Mart keeps their retail R&D in Cali, where 21st century people live.

Re: “NRA executive director: Goal is guns everywhere, with no training mandate

The NRA has gone off the damn rails. No doubt Charlie will be back next session with more nonsense.

Re: “Governor signs concealed carry bill, but amendment coming

"Rep. Charlie Collins was on hand to tout his bill as a potential national leader and to say it would reduce mass shootings"

In the rational-based world there would be a demand for data & evidence supporting that view but this IS after all, rKen$aw.

I suppose that if a particular pol's reelection campaign is going to hinge on a bullshit notion, namely that more "packers" will deter mass-shooting criminals, then it's probably a good idea to stick with the plan.

It is an objective fact, based on just the numbers from "accidental" concealed-carry shootings alone, that there are people alive right now who will later not be alive because of this law.

Rest assured that every pol from A$a! on down will be conveniently out of pocket in regard to any questions from surviving family members.
