Re: “Beware of 'unity'

Unity over priorities such as taking care of the "least of us," especially since we might just be in that group any day -- sure, then I want unity too. Education, child mentoring, "catching them when they're young." Healthcare for everyone. Until that is our definition of unity, RESIST.

Re: “Arkansas DHS to step up outreach on Medicaid work requirement and allow reporting by phone

What in the hell does this accomplish THREE days before the deadline? Another year of no insurance, but the assurance that they can get their insulin/beta blockers/fill-in-the-blank NEXT year? My grandparents were so proud of this state in the 70s... But the "great generation" is dead -- and it shows.

Re: “The Washington Post's Radley Balko on Frank Scott and police reform

I am not a criminal, but I wouldn't want to live in Little Rock. You don't have to be a criminal to be arrested in Little Rock... it simply isn't a requisite. Just get on their bad side... and voila! You are a "criminal." I guess there really is no "law and order" there...

Re: “Sinclair says it doesn't support its own 'editorial'

Re: “Trump jokes Sarah Huckabee Sanders having "a nervous breakdown"

So, you never liked Johnny Cash, eh Frederick? Don't like that indoor plumbing TVA brought us either? Whoa... you sure you're an Arkansan?

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

Is that why it's been taking so long for them to get what we voted for started? I knew there must be back-deal making on divvying up the spoils (licenses). And I figured it had a lot to do with current State Legislators... Lordy, it's been two years, now...
