Re: “Commission to hear about plans for Ten Commandments monument

Starting with the 1st Commandment which the legislature purports to believe in but it is obvious from their actions that their only god is eLwood's MoMoney. And the state is violating the one on state-killing tonight.

Re: “Commission to hear about plans for Ten Commandments monument

How much will this RAPERt violation of the U S Constituition cost the state in money for lawyers? In loss as a potential re-location for any sane company? How about RAPERt use some of his holy money and buy a piece of land and he can shove a Tower All Way to Heaven but NOT on the Capitol grounds for ANY religious monument, no matter how much I want to see that golden Hindu statue to the god of perfect penmanship.

Re: “Arkansas Medicaid 'savings' will produce some losers

If we get about $4 for every buck the state spends on Medicaid, then there will be a hit to those providing the services and that means to patients. More GOP thinking that while they talk "adding jobs" are doing all they can to destroy them.

Trump spoke of leaving NAFTA last night and then later retracted the statement when someone apparently showed him that 5 million Americans are involved in exports to Mexico and Canada. Arizona noted that just the wall alone could impact their economy by -29%. So far jobs have been eliminated or moved to Mexico so when is Trump's jobs number going to quit being negative?

Re: “Can the Marijuana Commission receive paid travel?

I have a lot more respect for these commission member's travel costs being covered than the state legislators who are already over-paid (and over-fed, judging from their girth).

Re: “One dead, another hospitalized after midtown shooting

How can that happen since the whole purpose of the executions was to stop murders? That is what we were told. I guess the answer is that it is just vengence of the Old Testament type.

Re: “Wednesday's open line

We have data on how these "tax cuts that pay for themselves" actually work out from the Reagan and Bush2 administrations and the answer is that they create massive deficits and increase the National Debt which doesn't seem to be an issue when the Republicans are in charge but are bigly important when Democrats are cleaning up the crap that the Republicans leave behind.

The reason that they are wasted is that the rich don't spend the money they get because they already have everything they want. If you want to spur the economy, do an infrastructure program so that working people get the money and they do spend it and it will turn over 5-7 times in the economy. Construction companies will buy new equipment or update what they have. Yes, working people might save some or pay off some bills but most will buy things that increase the need for more store workers and create a need to have more made which if the GOP and CoC hadn't pushed all the companies to move jobs overseas, would start US plants working.

A tax cut for the rich creates the need for a bank teller in the Cayman Islands.

Re: “Wednesday's open line

Glad you are back. Great pictures from Cuba on your Facebook page.

You know that the law that Judge Wendell Griffen broke was PWB (protesting while black). I read about the judge who blew through a sobriety roadblock and he is lucky that he isn't dead. The penalty for him seems very light compared to Joe Citizen who might have done the same thing.

Why hasn't the oil lease off Mar-a Largo been offered? The Democrats should buy it, put in a well to support President Trump's goal of more production, give the Democrats an income stream, and stop my inbox from filling from every candidate across the country.
