Re: “Secret tape raises more questions about Medical Marijuana Commission

"It is tempting to say that the cultivation permit process should be redone by a competent, independent authority rather than accept the scoring by politically appointed commissioners. But that would mean an unconscionable additional delay in implementation of the law."

Why do you say this? I don't think doing the right thing is unconscionable. Will it mean that this will delay cultivation another year? Maybe. To me, getting it right is more important that letting these crooked Muther #uc%ers get away with it.

Re: “Routine corruption in the Arkansas legislature

"Vacant expression. . .poor fitting suit . . . bowl cut hairdo." The more I look at this guy, the more I wonder how this idiot not only got elected, but how did he become Speaker of the House? To me, he looks like he's a few bricks short of a load. What is it with U.C.A., otherwise known as the University of Criminal Activity. I guess taking money from another member isn't a crime, but when you are loaning that kind of money, interest free, to the Speaker who has so much influence, it makes you wonder. I was told that it was Gilliam's idea to change the rules so that the Speaker of the House now gets to appoint every member to every committee, not just the chairmen of the committee. What a way to make money. Someone should look into that.

Re: “Routine corruption in the Arkansas legislature

@PA

You raise some interesting points. I've been told that Gillam and Dismang are both from the same part of the state and that Gillam is Dismang's lackey, toting his bread and milk and whatever else Dismang needs done.

It is clearly a pay for play mentality at the Capitol since the Republicans have taken over. I'm not saying Dems never had sticky fingers themselves, but these Republicans have definitely taken it to a whole new level. I know they say you should run government like a business, but this is ridiculous.

Everyone of these effers needs all their financials gone through with a fine tooth comb. All of them, Dem and Repub alike. Throw out all of the crooks. No telling what law enforcement would find out if they took the time to conduct a real investigation.

Strange if it is true that a newspaper had information for over a year about a "loan" and didn't report it. That is why the DemGazz is failing. It appears they are more focused on serving Walter Hussman's rich friends and conservative agenda than reporting the truth to the people. At least they published this story. You would think if they wanted to increase their readership, they wouild publish more stories like this, exposing the corruption in state government. I might even buy their paper if they did! That is why everyone reads the blog. The Arktimes shines the light on what is really going on at the Capitol.

Re: “UPDATE; Chief justice gets off case over lawsuit limits amendment

Not unexpected. Kemp appears to be a man of principal. That said, I don't think it is a conflict since he is opposed to it. His daughter works at the law firm that is bringing the lawsuit. The same law firm that drafted the amendment I am told. If he had voted for it, I would say there was a conflict, but it doesn't matter now, he is off. Womack will do what he is paid by his corporate handlers to do: protect their pocket books while screwing the little guy. He won't recuse. That would require honor.

Re: “'Unprecedented' cooperation results in home confinement for Micah Neal

This is freaking unbelievable as well. Crooked bastard should have served some time. Even if it was six months. There is no just for the people. Only the crooks. No wonder Gilbert Baker and others were allowed to walk. That and the fact that they were all buddies with then Faulkner County prosecutor Cody Highland. This is really shameful.

Re: “State Board votes to transfer Arkansas Governor's School to Arkansas Tech

Un Effing Believable! This is nothing more than petty Republicans like that idiot Ashley Madison loving Mark Lowery and religious whack jobs trying to dismantle any institution in this state that challenges people to think. Arkansas sucks is all I can say. We are an embarrassment to ourselves and the rest of the country. Let Jerry and the rest of the gang have it. I hope Hendrix starts it's own program. I would be glad to sponsor a scholarship for a student to attend a summer program there. Damn, we are living in a 1984 environment here in Arkansas. Soon they will be burning books. Heck they probably already have started.
