Re: “Public officials who block social media accounts may be running afoul of the law

Right to redress a government official should not be limited to those with whom the government official agrees, Tucker.

Re: “Senate defeats resolutions on amendments to prohibit same-sex marriage and ban abortion

"Rapert said marriage was not a fundamental right because the essence of marriage is the ability to reproduce and the Loving decision had said as much. 'History is on my side,' Rapert said."


"Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival." Loving v. Virginia, 388 US 1, at 12 (1967).

Re: “Ten Commandments monument public comment meeting contentious as committee member tells speakers their comments will neither help or hinder the process.

Should be an easy case with the current makeup of the Supreme Court (if it gets there, it likely won't). McCreary County v. ACLU is much more on point than Rapert's wishful thinking that Breyer's "it's been there for 40 years" reasoning in Van Orden v. Perry is the controlling precedent.

Pleasant Grove City v. Summum is going to kick out any attack by a group like the Satanic Temple. But an attack like the one in Oklahoma will likely prevail.

Re: “Football, prayer and Jason Rapert

FFRF may not have authority in Arkansas. But the Supreme Court of Arkansas does. And they've already spoken on this exact issue in Santa Fe Independent School District v. Doe.

Re: “Debtors' prisons are for kids, too, including in Arkansas

I've seen it over in the eastern counties plainjim. Not necessarily that high, but I've seen juveniles go to detention because fees weren't paid.

Re: “A House debate in Jonesboro illustrates politics today

Smith said you couldn't trust research from Chicago, a Democratic stronghold and a violent place. "I place little trust of research that come out of a democratic stronghold where cities are imploding."

Says the graduate of National Louis University. Located in, guess where? Chicago.


Also, he wants to spend money wisely? He got a Ph.D. from a for-profit online "university."

Re: “Paperwork filed for 6,000-pound Ten Commandments monument on Capitol grounds

Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt is really going to piss off Rapert. The reasoning in the opinion provides another avenue to destroy this irony rock. The Court ruled that it does not have to rely on the provided legislative reasoning when a clearer intent is present. Rapert's law states that this is to remind us of the moral foundation of our law. In reality, it is an advertisement of religion. And the Court can completely ignore that line of the law.

See citations to Whole Woman's Health in several voting rights cases.
