Re: “UA-Fort Smith chancellor leaving for South Dakota, interim named

Heck, he probably decided to leave after our corrupt legislature refused to approve a contract for UA Fort Smith to hire a doctor for the students due to some petty feud where legislators were upset because a political crony didn't get a job. Using your influence to shut down government to try and get your unqualified friends hired is just as corrupt as stealing GIF money in my book. Why the press didn't cover this story, I will never know. Certain House members should be ashamed!

Re: “UPDATE: Teachers fear Hutchinson administration has targeted LR teachers union and is pushing for more charters

I am convinced more now than ever that the Republican Party/Corporate Special Interests are systematically trying to dismantle every aspect of American Society that has kept us free and independent. The Republicans/Corporate Special Interests are doing all they can to turn us into a right wing, totalitarian nation state.

What is going on here in Little Rock regarding how Asa, the Walton family, and other special interests have taken over the LRSD should be concerning to everyone who believes in local control. That said, the masses sit idly by, saying nothing, letting Asa and his wrecking crew do their worst, because they have an "R" by their name. Enough is enough people. It is time for everyone to wake up and march on the Capitol and protest our Governor and the corporate special interests and put an end to all the corruption at the Capitol. And vote in November to throw the bums out!

Re: “Following Ballinger's money: Smells like marijuana

I normally agree with the Blue Hog, but if you want to talk about Ballinger and money, look at ALL the nursing home money he has taken. The marijuana related money he has received pales in comparison to the NH money he has taken. Go to the Secretary of State's web site and check it out for yourselves. It is all public record.

Re: “Life after Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the White House. Hurry the day.

Trying to figure out whether to go with Jefferson Airplane's "Sara" or Hall and Oates' "Sarah Smile."

Sarah, Sarah, storms are brewin' in your eyes
Sarah, Sarah, no time is a good time oh
Sarah, Sarah, storms are brewin' in your eyes
Sarah, Sarah, no time is a good time for goodbyes . . .Jefferson Airplane

Sara smile
Won't you smile a while for me
If you feel like leaving, you know you can go
But why don't you stay until tomorrow?
And if you want to be free, all you have to do is say so . . . Hall & Oates

Re: “ICYMI: Lamoureux's response to latest corruption plea

Wake up, people! Does anyone really think some outfit out of Magnolia would hire some mediocre attorneys out of Russellville and Little Rock if those attorneys weren't State Senators?

Just my opinion of course, but I believe Hutchinson and Lamoureaux would have NEVER been hired by this group or most likely any others if they weren't Senators in control of budget bills and the like.

Our state capitol is as corrupt as anytime in the history of this state! We need to clean our state capitol of all of the corruption before we allow them to pass a single piece of legislation. I don't care what party they are, they are all suspect!

Re: “Corruption probe nets another guilty plea, implicates another senator

Every legislator, attorney or not, needs to have all of their financials audited from the year before they got elected, going forward. And they need to go back and check all elected officials for the last 20 years doing this. I am so tired of people trying to make this a blue or a red issue. Party politics have no role in the corruption of government. There are people on both sides of the aisle who are equally as guilty. Throw all the corrupt bastards out. Do it now. Clean this swamp. Keep the goods ones and throw out the bad ones today!

Re: “Meet the Russian Rifle Association

The Pro Trump Jack Booted Thugs do not want to admit that the NRA is nothing more than a marketing arm of the international gun manufacturing industry. The NRA does not care about the 2nd Amendment other than the fact that they can use it for marketing purposes, making ignorant Americans afraid that the boogie man is going to take away their guns so they better go out and buy more before they are gone. Damn America, wake the hell up! The NRA and Trump and turning us over to the Russians and you effing idiots are going right along with it!
