I'll give the Arkansas GOP some credit: I had sworn to never vote for Mark Pryor again. Then they went and nominated Tom Cotton. Made a dadgum liar out of me for sure.
I love these segments. Great job, Camp Friday Films!
A bad day for Mark Abernathy is always a great day for Little Rock!
"More Republicans than Democrats have signed up for Obamacare"
want to wager that within 2 years Repubs will convert the label Obamacare to
Personally, I'll wait for that Giant Sucking Sound as voters leave the lying Republicans.
Steve Jones and very little steven: You ranting paranoids cool your barrels for one second and get this. If the "tyrannical government" WANTED your guns, it would by gawd HAVE your fucking guns. Shit, boys, you're awful lucky to have that "tyrannical government"; lots of Real t-g's wouldn't allow you to have ANY guns under any circumstances, and if you miraculously did get a saturday night special, they'd just blow your asses away. BTW, have either of y'all moved away from home yet? I'm 68 years old and have owned guns since I was 10. You peckerheads sound like you're about 17 and zitty, with an NRA erection going for you. Bless your little, very little, hearts.
Rhett Lashlee, John Thompson or Tim Horton. Each would be enthusiastically welcomed. All have AR ties.
If you are so proud that you can carry a gun around, why wouldn't you want the world to know? But you are proud but don't want anyone to know you have s a CCW permit. Maybe there is a defenseless car that needs to be shot again!
And I won't be shopping in downtown Conway on December 21st. In fact, I'll use the Seibenmorgan Bypass to get around that whole area. You can play your little games and I can go to the shopping center or LR or NLR or Morriliton or Searcy. We can both win that way! Except for the store owners on Oak Street that won't get the business.
Let me also add that I have a deep respect for Lynn Foster; even though we might be seen as being on different "sides" she has always treated me with respect and listened to my comments. I have done my very best to return that kindness. Our "arguments" have always been more a matter of finding the common ground from opposite starting points, NEVER personal "her vs me."
And I have the same experience dealing with Wally Loveless. He has decades of experience in this industry, and he has seen every possible problem in the course of his career.
They are both very intelligent, very passionate people. Speaking as "Howard" I hope this blows past quickly.
Can you believe I was told (on my Facebook page) by a present female Little Rock Wastewater employee that I should be ashamed of my comment posted last night. Well I find that very interesting. I have nothing to which to be ashamed. I thought I was being pretty nice regarding the entire matter. I do feel bad that Reggie Corbitt will be the fall guy, and Stan Miller will more than likely get up dust himself of and carry on with his employment like nothing happened. I know that some folks take real issue with the truth. Guess that's from where she was speaking. Oh well using my recent post will give her fresh gossip regarding me. That's ok, God knows what the truth is, and he's the only one whom to I answer. :-)
SEVENTY MILLION DOLLARS- wow, if thats low bid I bet high was $170M.
I enjoy support the arts. But after completion, what new jobs?
More tourists- more fast food to tax?
And FEWER seats than now.
Only in LR City Gub-ment........
Of the hacks, by the hacks, for the hacks (and their wealthy puppet masters)
Talk about ripe fruit, and stupid running rampant. You guys, Max in particular, crack me up. Your laughable hyperbole is SO cute and really shows how clueless most on the left are on guns r gun violence.
First, Max cannot even hold himself the tiniest bit responsible for the NEED to seal the records of CCW permit holders. Considering that folks like Max and other idiots in the New England(?) papers that tried to treat CCW permit holders like criminals. The First isn't so absolute that newspapers can publish lists with an eye towards shaming or intimidation willy nilly. So, boohoo Max, you blew it. It is not like the new law protecting gun owners is such a Constitutional abrogation.
I was reading some of the laws, from state to state, and a lot of them that were passed weren't really expanding gun laws, but just codifying minor points. Some of the gun laws in anti-gun states weren't much in the way of new expansions, either, just minor changes.
As for the supposed 'nutter' expansion, it doesn't look like it isn't so nutter, after all. Looks like other prosecutors and county attorneys see it as a logical expansion of current rights. Good. It isn't like there will be any growth in crimes. More folks have bought more guns and ammo in the last decade. According to acolytes of Max, blood should be running in the streets. But the facts do not support that in the least. They can ONLY point to one mass shooting and wave bodies of dead children trying to be relevant to the debate.
The FBI uniform crime report shows crime in the decline. The CDC gun violence study that Biden got going, but Obama has been ignoring shows that gun crimes are not such a big problem. At worse, the reports states, there problem is neutral, at best, the report says guns in the hands of would be victims prevents crimes.
Problem with crime is that it isn't a gun problem, it is a sociological problem. As has been shown in other countries, less guns do not mean less crime. But the folks who hate inanimate objects will lie, and squeal and whine about those evil guns,all the while ignoring every fact that destroys their little delusions.
Bless your little hearts.
daisy, your second question starts with an assumption that $70 million is needed to properly renovate Robinson. Our fearless 'leaders' could just as easily have decided on $170 million or $370 million. That $70 million figure was just the upper amount they thought they could sell to the public as reasonable.
Re uses for the 2% hamburger tax- maybe before a 2% tax on restaurants is passed there needs to be community involvement in (a) how much money that would generate annually, (b) how it could be wisely spent to offset the loss of those same millions that are already circulating elsewhere in the economy (those tens of millions of dollars didn't just appear out of thin air) and (c) whether those same funds would be better spent where they were before a 2% restaurant tax was added. But that would require planning and thoughtful decision making, something foreign to Little Rock 'leaders'.
I_AM - Don't forget those folks who want to eliminate their own misery by eliminating themselves. Knives just don't work.
Mizzou lost two football games this season. Other than those losses, ASU played the Tigers as tough as any other team on the schedule.
Players who were recruited by Steve Roberts and red-shirted his last year would have played for 5 separate coaches by the time they graduate after next season. That has to be a record!!!!
If I may, although this is a tangent, I would like to add some detail on why the Commission had issues with the Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act.
In the Commission discussions, the landlords brought up a number of details MISSING from the URLTA we believed were necessary to make it successful. These were very important details such as: how does the tenant prove the landlord was notified? How long does the landlord have to make repairs? If the landlord refuses to make repairs, what are the tenant’s rights?
Believe it or not, these details are NOT in the URLTA. These details have been filled in by the various states as they adopt it. I see the URLTA as a framework to start from: it sets the goals, but we have to add the individual steps.
The bills ran by Jon Woods bill did not add these details, and by not contacting a single landlord member of the Commission, the bill could not be supported. If he had approached any of the landlords on the Commission, I think the outcome would have been very different.
Since then, I have sat down with my fellow Commissioners Lynn Foster, Amy Johnson, Steve Giles, Marshall Prettyman and others (including Amy Johnson!) and we’ve walked through those missing details. I think that now they (having never been landlords) understand the need for those details to protect both sides.
My group is always available to discuss. The key to getting legislative change is to bring all the stakeholders together and craft a bill that we can all live with.

Whilst it is nice to talk about conscious raising & the inevitable karma of making other life suffer, many don’t care. Some carry forth about the ecological destruction, residual growth hormone consumption & ubiquitous antimicrobial resistance, but many don’t care. Others speak of the links between cruelty to animals & cruelty to people, of how sociopaths hone their skills on animals first, still we don’t care. Reminded that the same lack of empathy & bottom-line strategies employed against animals will soon be perfected for use on workers, it may be too late to care.
“The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men.”
1. What else would you have A&P money pay for?
2. How else would you have funded the $70 M price tag to renovate Robinson?
Justin....our "Aunt Clete" would be so proud. Im 44 and, dare i say, knew "Aunt Clete" longer than anyone other than his parents and sisters. I grew up directly beside him, next door, and with him as my mentor/guru/best friend/instigator my whole life. . At 6yrs old, we were arrested for breaking into mailboxes together. The next summer we were arrested for forging $27,000 woth of checks we got from said mailboxes, lol. When i smoked my first joint, it was with Aunt Clete, who had "procured" it from his older sister and promptly dried it in a light fixture as we listened to "Glass Houses" by Billy Joel. Man, man, man...............i could ramble for hours about the very best friend i ever had..............Justin, i cried, and still do. He would be thrilled beyond words to know that somebody had actually gained some level of fame, at least partly, by telling his story. I miss my dear friend Samuel Leon Mullins III as much today as i ever have. I feel like a treasured soul that i had such a good friend in him, and you as well. The last time i saw you, you were at the end of a significant stay in our local jail and i had just been arrested and was facing life in prison. I copied this whole story and will hand deliver it to Mr & Mrs Mullins when i see them outside. They are advancing in years and health is failing but i know theyll be so proud. I know i sure am. Thank you for immortalizing Leon in your words, as i know he is in my mind and heart. Get well soon Justin!!!! :)
We don't have a "stabbing problem" because why would anyone carry a knife when he or she can dispense justice much more effectively with a gun?
HAVE YOU TRIED TO KILL SOMEONE WITH A KNIFE? Good God, even a football star like OJ struggled with it. It's almost impossible to do it quickly and still stay clean enough to serve Cokes at your kid's softball game later.
If someone flipped you off for passing on a double yellow line, and all you had was a knife, it would be a huge waste of time to turn around and try to catch them after you see the Obama sticker on their bumper as they go by. If you've got a Glock under the seat, however, it's a different story.
