Rapert Resign billboard gets the expected reaction

A money drive on change.org apparently raised sufficient cash ($750 was the goal) to erect a Rapert Resign billboard in the senatorial district of the bully of Bigelow, Republican Sen. Jason Rapert.

The sponsor, arrevolution.org, describes itself as an independent expenditure committee raising money to get active in races for Arkansas legislature — a "national embarrassment" thanks to the recent session, the website says.

I was happy to see the activism when noted earlier this week. And, as with most things Rapert, howls from the senator increased attention to the project.


He got some blowback, including a Bible quote for the evangelist, Rev. 22:18, which says.

I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book.
I gather from the poster of the verse that the writer finds Rapert, raising money for his campaign while others in his region suffer from storm damage, to blame for much misfortune.

To be continued, I'm sure.

  • 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.
