Arkansans? Si

Posted By on Fri, May 19, 2006 at 7:32 AM


You hardly needed to ask, but, yes, Sens. Pryor and Lincoln joined the Republicans in whipping up the anti-Hispanic frenzy by voting for the English-as-national-language measure approved by the Senate yesterday. They also voted for a slightly moderating measure that passed later, but this, too, was mostly Republican backed, in keeping with the day's GOP message (underscored by Bush's dune buggy romp) that the Repubs intend to stop the brown hordes from taking over Amurica.

Next up: gay marriage and flag burning, the Repubs having solved everything else of importance.

  • Trump tariffs hit farmers hard

    Well, the trade war has begun and the early returns for farmers are not good — sharp reductions in the prices for soybeans and corn. You may have heard that Arkansas, which overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump, has some agricultural interests, particularly in soybeans.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
