The Independence Day all-day open line

OH SAY CAN YOU SEE: Any tax subsidies for this fireworks show? Nope, its in DeQueen, not Tea Party stronghold Benton, where wasting tax money is bad except in their personal entertainment.

  • OH SAY CAN YOU SEE: Any tax subsidies for this fireworks show? Nope, its in DeQueen, not Tea Party stronghold Benton, where wasting tax money is bad except in their personal entertainment.

WHAT NO YOUR DOLLARS AT WORK SIGN FOR TAXPAYERS? Jeremy Hutchinson touts his presence at the BEnton fireworks show he tapped state tax money to pay for.
  • WHAT NO 'YOUR DOLLARS AT WORK' SIGN Jeremy Hutchinson touts his presence at the Bryant fest. Maybe he should explain why Benton got money from taxpayers and Bryant didn't.
I'm not saying I'm done. But I'm not saying I'm not. So, let's throw this line open for whatever and top it with Kat Robinson's photo from last night's fireworks show in DeQueen, where Aaron Owens sang. Hey, Sen. Hutchinson, you think you could send some of your GIF money over there to help the good people of DeQueen offset the costs? They'd be happy to list you and the Tea Party and local Republican committee as sponsors, I'm sure.

CORRECTION AND EXPLANATION: Oops, I quickly uploaded Kat Robinson's photo this morning and took off. But, I uploaded the wrong photo, of Batman Jeremy Hutchinson, which was kind of fitting given that he's claiming sponsorship of taxpayer financed fireworks in Benton tonight. But I meant to show Kat's photo from DeQueen last night. Sorry about the confusion.
