Feeling my way carefully towards the grave

Re: “The latest in Trump: The word 'traitor' gains currency

Trump is Traitor Maximus but our 6 turds in Congress will stand behind him no matter what he does. It's a wonderful feeling to know that Trump showed the world that Putin is his boss a couple of days ago, but as long as all elected Republicans stand behind him, ain't no way to get rid of him or bring him to justice or even force him to tell the truth from now on.

We are a dead nation walking. Razor has more fellow travelers in this state than we do. There won't be a Blue wave in arkansas this coming November. Nope, too stupid, too racist, too mean. Most of our voters in this state will still be chanting Trump Trump Trump as they're herded onto the trains heading for their local gulag.

They're not paying attention. When they do a tiny bit they listen to the wrong people. There's no hope. Stick a fork in us...we done!

Re: “Which Republican are you going to choose for Arkansas Supreme Court?

Is there a box for Neither? arkansas people won't win no matter which of these two comes out on top. Heart attack or pancreatic cancer....I think I'll not vote in this race.

Re: “Batesville schools prepare to arm up

This is just another big win for Trump-NRA-Putin-Russia! They're a team you know, all of them in bed together like the old movie, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice

Who knew the Batesville public school system was Pro-Russia? It really won't matter because the Waltons will kill off the public school system in Batesville anyway. Got no kids in school, got no grandchildren, turn every school into the old Wild West and it won't be any skin off my nose.

While we were sleeping there was a war and Russia won without firing a shot. Who woulda thought that could happen? Does this mean I'll have to eat Borscht?

Re: “Judge won't back effort to stop demolition of bridge at Clarendon

Isn't there something more important to spend state money on other than tearing down a beautiful historic bridge? Nothing this beautiful will ever be built across any arkansas river ever again. This modern world requires all new bridges to be a big strip of nothing. Cheaper you know.

The beautiful old iron bridges leading in and out of Fort Baptist were blasted into hunks of junk back in the 1970s. Replaced with slightly curving straight lines lacking any kind of beauty and with all the grace of a sidewalk. If the Clarendon bridge is no longer used for car traffic, leave it alone. Let it just be beautiful! Give our kids something to look at.

Re: “Wednesday: An open line and the world according to Trump

Damn it! New evidence has recently come forth showing that Charlies Manson, when giving instructions to his family misspoke and told Dianne Lake, Leslie Van Houten, Charles "Tex Watson, Patricia Krenwinkel, Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian and Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme to go kill rich people on his list.

He misspoke! He meant to say DON'T KILL.....oops!

Re: “Baptist Health to buy Sparks Health System hospitals in Fort Smith, Van Buren

Tell me Obamacare is a failure! Not counting the 3 times Sparks has been sold in recent years, there has been at least half a billion dollars spent on the construction of new clinics and other medical treatment centers plus a giant, getting more giant by the day Osteopathic college.

The college came into existence thanks to the Degen Foundation which is flush with multi-millions of dollars that came along when the non-profit Sparks Hospital system was sold to the first for-profit owners. Then that Kentucky based group sold it again and now we gots Baptist Health of LR buying the place.

I quit them forever when they permanently maimed me for life in October 2015 due to the fact that they didn't have enough surgeons to handle the load. After developing a very serious problem in my right leg I was told to go home and wait 5 weeks until they could get me on the table. Like an idiot I waited as my foot died and I got in 2 days early after developing a dangerous blood clot in my groin in the middle of the night.

So best wishes but you won't be seeing me no more. I'll take my chances with Mercy and hope that the bean counters there don't wind up killing me in the future. Obamacare has been a gift to the Medical Industrial Complex.

Re: “State suspends search for execution drug

We got enough guns and ammo in this state to shoot a death row inmate in the head 100,000 times. Why not hold a lottery to allow arkansas citizens a chance to carry out executions? It would be a hell of a lot more popular than our current boring lottery which was designed to help educate Arky children.

Holding the executions in War Memorial Stadium would give the old structure a reason to exist again. The tickets would sell out in a heartbeat! And then there's the TV rights to be sold to the highest bidder. Pay Per View and live streaming and DVDs which would sell around the world!

Just think of the new money the Execution Lottery would bring in!
