Re: “Bill proposes to forget about Confederacy on state flag

Rewrite history? I just don't think Arkansans should be proud of history where it was condoned and the government voted to defend the rights of some here to enslave, rape, torture, and lynch black people. Should we have a star on our flag for that? I don't know what the appropriate symbol should be but I don't think it's a star. Maybe a big shit stain on a miniature pair of pants.

Re: “Flowers proposes end to slavery in form of unpaid labor in prisons

Asking those against paying prisoners:
Consider yourself a disciple, do you? Think you'll be on His right side, I bet.

Matt25 https://biblehub.com/bsb/matthew/25.htm

Then He will say to those on His left, Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, I was naked and you did not clothe Me, I was sick ... and in prison ... and you did not visit Me.

And they too will reply, Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or IN PRISON! [egads!], and did not minister to You?

Then the King will answer, Truly I tell you, whatever you did NOT do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me.

And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.

You know we just can't compete with Kansas and Louisiana when it comes to prisoners' wages.

Re: “Women suffer when men control our narratives

Not that any embryo/fetus worshiper in the legislature would have a physician or other clinician come and speak either. I'm surprised they didn't bar the door to make sure a professional entered the room to share an opinion.

I think they pretty much ignored Dr. Lowery six years ago. You know, science and experience being way too hard to listen to, much less comprehend. There's just not enough truthiness about real experiences with women and healthcare professionals when the horror narratives preside over the echo chambers Republicans share with one another.

You do know that the narrative is more like liberals are out to stab babies while in the womb and suck the brains out with a vacuum. You would be luckier at the lottery than to hear one disagree with some that says liberals either have the joy of doing it themselves or relish in the fact that it's being done. That's what they tell themselves.

Re: “Like Arkansas weather? Some day you'll love New York

I'm thinking it might be a good idea to start investing in AC companies a few states or a country north. The heating and air guys up north have probably focused on the heat more than the cooling over the years. Some affirmation after Canada had a week or two like Arkansas last year. https://www.npr.org/2018/07/10/627687639/e…

Re: “Trump still rides high in Arkansas, but we're an outlier

On Net approvals from 2 years ago to last month....
Texas has gone form +19 to -1.
Florida a +17 to -4.
N. Carolina +17 to -4
Ohio +14 to -6.
And Arkansas went from Net Approval +30 to +10 in two years.

That's still impressive because I would have thought more Trumpers would have stood their ground like Crowder says (back Nov. 2016) at the 4 minute mark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DvNzdj529…

I don't know for certain if the net approvals would change the voting outcome of each state. I would hope so. That's what I want to see. Trump vs. ????? on the swing states.

Other than that, has Trump landed at the bottom of his net approval hole or do you think he can dig deeper? I expect there may be a bounce up for February because of the state of the union.
