Re: “Rapert called out for anti-Muslim messaging

Less than a year and a half from now (in 16 mos.), the voters will decide if he represents their views. Surely 8 years of this hateful ugliness will be enough.

Re: “Ten Commandments monument under construction at Arkansas Capitol

Photo caption says: "... on the ground near the Justice Building." LOL. I guess they'll see if the bldg is aptly named and/or if our Supreme Court justices rule against the ACLU suit which then gets overturned by SCOTUS, they can conveniently watch the removal as salt gets poured in their judicial wounds.

Re: “Broadway Bridge ramp set to open Monday

Good Lord, FINALLY. It took longer to do that little short ramp than it did to finish the bridge once the tugboats had the bridge spans in place. The ramp has looked paved and finished for over 2 months collecting dust with NEVER a human in sight working on it until the last couple days. Very frustrating. Guess there was no $80K per day for swift completion to pocket on that one.

Re: “Demonstrators pay a call on French Hill

People do die without healthcare insurance. Back in 2006, I knew of a couple in their 40's who sold their house which was mortgage-free, liquidated all their assets, ran up credit cards, but because they made too much were not eligible for Medicaid, but could not afford the cancer treatments. In the end, they ran out of money to pay for the cancer treatments and the wife died.

Re: “House adopts impeachment rule; Walker already talking lawsuit

Judge Griffin, impeach? Why not start with someone guilty of an impeachable offense first, like all the legislators that are guilty of conflicts of interest, self-dealing, and voting on issues in which they have a pecuniary stake in the outcome of the vote. It would be a 13 episode mini-series with a 10-year run before we got through with all the trials of these alt-right racist hypocrites.

Re: “Legislature goes, rain stays. Your open line

Maybe the state budget would not be on hard times if Asa would quit giving tax cuts to his wealthy buddies. Hum? Healthcare for the poor vs. Tax cuts for the wealthy. Asa doesn't have to think twice on that one. He can't pass up a general or special session without more tax cuts. Can we not give these purveyors of death a quick kick in the political pants and get them out for God's sake.
