Re: “The looming health care crisis? Where's Asa? And Arkansans in Congress?

"There are a lot of things the USA spends money on that are unnecessary"
There sure is!!

There is a big hole in the budget with military spending. The pentagon has never had a successful audit. Congress passed a law demanding it, but it never happens.
https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/201…

They blow money like crazy and have no accountability. The military built a 32 million dollar building in Afghanistan that has never been used.
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/investi…

Then we spend $92 million to build Afghanistan a new Pentagon, a massive five-story military headquarters with domed roofs and a high-tech basement command center that will link Afghan generals with their troops fighting the Taliban across the country.

We will never get control of the deficit until the military is held accountable for it's spending.

Re: “Little Rock anti-violence activist says LRPD pulled gun on him for holding cell phone

If the officers thought a potential suicide was taking place, why would need to have their guns drawn.
Pointing a gun toward a potential suicide victim is just going to escalate the situation.

Re: “New analysis: Trump tax cut mostly helps the rich. Duh

3.1 percent.....
Thanks Obama!!

Trump had nothing to do with this. The economy was still running on the Obama policies.

Re: “An open line for Sunday

"why I oppose the anti-fas as much as I do the Nazis".

I have no love for the anti-fas folks, but Nazis are just evil. No equivalence there.

Re: “Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

I didn't see Janet. So, I'm just telling you from my experience. Most of the performers at Verizon are performing with extra prerecorded tracks. I can't say what happened during Janet's performance, but I will say prerecorded tracks is a standard with big acts. Especially in large arenas. I would bet money some of her vocals were prerecorded. No offense to Janet. She's a good singer.

Re: “Bill Clinton to speak at Central High 60th anniversary ceremony on Sept. 25

He doesn't have to procure anybody. He's a celebrity. Haven't you heard?
Celebrities can just go up and grab them by the pussy.

Re: “No, Obamacare hasn't produced huge increases in everyone's health insurance

"UnitedHealth Group CEO Stephen Hemsley made $17.8 million in total compensation in 2016 for running the nation's largest health insurance company. Hemsley's compensation grew by 22.4% over 2015, according to a document filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday."

The ACA has been good to Hemsley!
