Re: “Petition-killer amendment headed to the 2020 ballot

Perhaps if Vaughn and her cohorts would listen and act upon the desires of the CITIZENS, not just the fat cats, WE would not have to resort to petitions. I say vote them all out, and get some Representatives who will propose these bills for us, so that we are not forced to gather signatures for referendums. This is infuriating... And it also tells us why, two years later, the referendums we passed two years ago remain unimplemented.

Re: “The Mueller report is a win for Trump: The open line

Cato, while it may be true that 78% of Republicans love them some Trump -- Republicans now make up only 24% of the nation (maybe fewer by now). We're getting down to Trump's brown shirts, and only the brown shirts. As a Dem, we outnumber them...

Re: “Beware of 'unity'

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...
