State Rep. Jon Hubbard still on tear over immigrants

Speaking of audits: State Rep. Jon Hubbard of Jonesboro needs a mental one

Now, Stephens Media reports, he wants to spend state money to audit whether the University of Arkansas spent any money in a recent campus discussion on the life of undocumented immigrants. He's sure Chancellor David Gearhart hasn't told him the truth in saying no money was spent. Why, the chancellor might have called somebody and invited him to attend or otherwise publicized the event.

Here's the thing: IT DOESN'T MATTER. It doesn't matter if the UA rented the Ritz Carlton to hold this confab. If a university cannot hold a discussion on the plight of unauthorized immigrants, it can't discuss any element of society that a wackjob like Hubbard might prefer be kept secret from impressionable students. Education would be limited to topics Hubbard holds suitable.

Hubbard will continue wasting the time and money of a state oversight agency for his mean-spirited and maniacal pursuit of the brown people. If no other Republican is defeated this fall, Hubbard's defeat would lift civility, compassion and reason in the chamber exponentially.

This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.

  • 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.
