Gimme, gimme

A blog reader from Lower Arkansas notes an article in the Benton County Daily Record that illustrates how NW Ark. Republicans want to take care of their needs -- highways in this case, but the strategy applies across the board. As expressed by Rep. Donna Hutchinson: Take money from everyone else in Arkansas by changing the way highway money is divided. Never mind that, though NW Ark. might need more, it doesn't mean other regions need less. But why raise taxes if you can steal someone else's money?

You'll have to copy and paste to read it.

  • 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.
