Re: “Paul Spencer condemns Trump's "racist and vile comments" about Haiti and African nations

Spencer is right of course, but the Trumpers here in Red Arkansas could care less about some teacher quoting latin. They all agree with Trump. Sad state of affairs in the natural state.

Re: “Trump administration releases guidance giving go-ahead on Medicaid work requirements; Arkansas request still pending


How does the Governor's plan impact nursing home residents? Are the Nursing Home Owners having to tighten their belts? It is my understanding they make as much or more than anyone off of Medicaid benefits.

Re: “Bank buys Jake Files' property in foreclosure sale for $2.1 million in defaulted loans

Whatever happened to the story in the Ft. Smith paper about Michael Morton associate giving money to Files? That sounded strange to say the least. Then it just fell off the map.

Re: “South on Main's brunch is a crowd-pleaser

Most every restaurant in Little Rock is soooooooo over rated. The Emperor has no clothes, people!!! Do any of the folks who write on this page even know what good food is? What is your background? Do the Little Rock food scene a favor and be merciless in your reviews. Only then will the food in this city get better. I guess that is why the Times got rid of the food blog. They didn't like real feedback. I just don't get the reviews on this site.

Re: “Welcome to Trumplandia, aka Arkansas

Are you liberal elites really shocked at how stupid our state is? Really? You talk so bad about those outside of Little Rock, it is no wonder they respond more to Trump than the elites. Personally, I can't stand Trump. But when the Democrats offer up Crooked Hillary (Yes, I said it), they shouldn't be surprised with the outcome. Give the people someone to vote for from outside of Little Rock for a change. Someone with a real chance. Democrats have to be honest and realistic about what they can do and who can win. Nobody wants to run because regular folks know the whack jobs are in control of the hen house. Democrats have turned their back on the rural middle class and the chickens have come home to roost. So don't be shocked at where our state is on Trump. It is to be expected.

Re: “The Perfect Candidate Edition

Barth lost me on this podcast when he said Stodola was highly competent or deeply competent, whatever it was. I guess the better question is, "Competent at what?" I don't see much if anything come out of the City Hall of Little Rock worth reporting. Time for a change there. As far as the 2nd District goes, agree that Clarke Tucker is in the best position to run against French Hill when compared to the candidates already announced or potential candidates still being discussed. Still don't think he can win, but he is much better than Spencer and the other person. Dems are sucking right now. Hope Trump will change all that but in this state, it will be a slow process, I am afraid.

Re: “Monday: Today's news and the open line

Someone was telling me the latest on Senator Jake Files. Said there was an article about him last week being looked into by the city of Fort Smith for some money he apparently misappropriated. Has anyone yet asked the Ethics Commission to look into the money he "wink, wink" borrowed from David Norsworthy/Michael Morton. Wasn't it like 80K? A whole lot more than what he scammed out of the city of Fort Smith. And why does the Ethics Commission need someone to file a formal complaint when the press has already reported on this? I guess that is just part of the system protecting the corrupt in the system. I also heard from a lawyer buddy that the 8th Circuit entered it's order in the case involving Johnny Goodson last week and that PK Holmes signed the final order clearing Goodson in less than an hour after receiving it. He must have been waiting on that one. Still haven't seen anything reported on that by the way. Seems to me if we can spend that much time looking into something like the Goodson matter, which most lawyers I knew said was much ado about nothing, then we ought to at least have enough resources to look into a crooked Senator taking money from more than one lobbyist in less than a year's time. And before some of you start saying that Files already has announced he wasn't running for re-election, my response to that is a big old "So What?" If you do wrong, you do wrong. Files should be held accountable.
