Re: “Deaths in LR surgery center featured in report on mixed regulation of centers

Compare this to the restrictions Arkansas places on a woman who wants to take two pills to terminate her pregnancy.

Re: “King James 1, Donald Trump 0. Tonight's open line

And let us not overlook the fact that Trump decided to pick a fight with one of (maybe the most?) the most popular persons in Ohio on the day that he is going to speak/rant at a special election campaign rally. In Ohio. In a race that is too close to call.

Re: “The facts are in: Arkansas's work rule for Medicaid is unlikely to 'work'

"She found people cant work because they dont have the skills to be employable, dont have the social connections to find job openings, or have personal challenges."

I would add "...and live in the country with the worse public transportation system in the developed world."

Re: “Re Susan Collins' comment on Supreme Court appointment

She will fold.

"And given the fact that the likely nominee will have avoided such an unambiguous posture, her on-air comments yesterday left quite a bit of wiggle room."

Re: “School safety commission suggests armed guards in every school

"Exclude persons who are not psychologically fit for service as a CSSO."

Wouldn't that include anyone who wanted to be an unpaid armed guard in a school?

And, as I have said before, my local high school campus has 12 detached buildings and multiple athletic facilities. How many armed guards will it take to secure that campus?

As Parkland demonstrated, having a trained armed guard on campus won't stop a shooting.

Did this commission question the insurance companies that provide coverage to schools to find out the impact of volunteer armed guards?
