Re: “Will pharmacists wreck the governor's budget over reimbursement dispute?

Arkansas Works/The Private Option/Arkansas' Obamacare - Whatever you want to call it, will be Asa's biggest test in the coming years. If it fails, our whole state budget will fail, as the budget is tied to Arkansas Works actually working. You can thank President Trump for his role in tearing down the affordable care act. When he did that, it hurt Arkansas. Asa better hope these legislators stick with him this session.

Re: “Sen. Jake Files pleads guilty to fraud, money laundering charges

For the trolls on this thread, here is a news flash for you: This is the "Arkansas Times" and this is an Arkansas story about an Arkansas State Senator who plead guilty to stealing Arkansas tax dollars. Are you guys worried that no one else is going to report on the Deputy Director resigning? I suggest you try CNN, FOX, or any of the other major news networks if you have been unable to find any news on the Dep Director's resignation. One thing you won't find on FOX or CNN is anything about Jake Files. And one more question for you trolls: Why does this have to be about Republicans or Democrats for you guys? Isn't right, right and wrong, wrong for you guys, or is it party dependent? If it is D report away, but if it is an R, then there is nothing to see here? I promise you if the Senator in question was a Democrat, you guys wouldn't say a word about this story.

Back to the story at hand, I am still curious about this Senator's connection to the nursing home industry and lobbyists Bruce Hawkins and David Norsworthy, who is Michael Morton's business partner? Wasn't there a story or two in the last year where he took large sums of money from both of these lobbyists? Those stories seem to have gone by the wayside. Hopefully, the feds will look into this Arkansas story.

Re: “Tales of the resistance: Trump and bathroom hysteria take a beating

Great night for Dems in Virginia. How does everyone think that will translate to Arkansas? Hillary Clinton carried Virginia in the last election. We all know how Arkansas turned out. With the poll that came out yesterday, it makes me wonder if Arkansas Dems can make a difference or not this time. Let's hope so.

Re: “Joint Clinton appearance set for 25th anniversary of presidential win

I am not a Clinton hater by no means. I am glad they are having a party. But I am tired of celebrating victories that are decades old. It is kind of like how Arkansas still celebrates the '64' Football National Championship. Arkansas needs to focus on the future, not the past. Democrats especially aren't going to get anywhere if all we can talk about is Dale, David, and Bill.

Re: “Jim Hendren ends arrangement for drug court labor

Wasn't this the same sort of arrangement that you saw the cronies in the movie "Brubaker" and "the Shawshank Redemption" have? Maybe they could make another movie with Burt Reynolds: "The Longest Yard 2."

Re: “Eddie Joe Williams to leave state Senate for Trump appointment to Energy Board

@ Max Brantley,
I tried looking on the secretary of state's web site to see what the latest filings are for Eddie Joe and his "Go Eddie Joe" PAC. I couldn't find anything for the report that was due this month. I thought you guys might have more skill at working the interwebs and looking that stuff up. Just curious if he is still keeping his PAC and consultant firm, etc. going.

Re: “Sen. Trent Garner's fight for discrimination against gay people

Trent Garner and Bob Ballinger are two reasons we only need one law school in this state. If they are the caliber of attorney we are putting out we are putting out too many lawyers. I can't believe these idiots are lawyers and don't have a fundamental understanding of things like the first amendment. We are obviously too lax about who we let in.
