Re: “Mike Ross and Asa Hutchinson face off in debate for governor

Ross and Hutchinson are both corporate whores for the NRA, the Arkansas Talibangicals and the get-tough-on-(fill in the blank) crowd. Not much difference between them in my book. Ditto with Cotton/Pryor. I'm voting Green this election.

Re: “Prostitution sting nets six Arkansans at Choctaw Casino

"The operation was a successful joint effort between the Choctaw Nation Tribal Police, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, Department of Homeland Security, Le Flore County Sheriff’s Office, Le Flore County District Attorney Investigators and Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office."

It took seven state and federal agencies to arrest six prostitutes and four male cohorts? Talk about overkill. This is what happens when the police combine the limitless intelligence gathering and sharing capabilities of the surveillance state with nothing better to do in Oklahoma on a Wednesday night.

Re: “Democrat goes after Jason Rapert on his record

Corporations are not people, and people are not "created by God for the purpose of maximizing an investor's profit." Such attitudes clearly show just how evil corporate capitalism is. It commodifes everything, including land and people. It's primary concern is the bottom line; everyone and everything else be damned. Those who worship at the altar of the so-called "free" market give wealth and power a front seat to truth and justice. Monopoly capitalism has so corrupted the reins of power in federal and state government that it can no longer be constrained through traditional means like the vote. It has become a cancer eating this country out from the inside, creating vast post-industrial wastelands that are growing ever larger. Eminent domain is simply another means by which the corporate state commodifies people and resources, using them up and throwing them away.

The only means left to anyone who really cares about the fate of our nation and future generations of Americans is through grassroots activism and acts of civil disobedience.

Re: “Michelle Duggar and the Family Council try to torpedo Fayetteville non-discrimination ordinance with lies

I got that robocall. I looked up the Duggars' website, got a telephone number to schedule events (no other number listed), and called it. Some lady answered with "governor's office." Turns out, she's working for former governor Mike Huckabee, so I guess there's some connection between him and the Duggars. I told the lady that this was the number that the Duggar website had given me, and she then directed my call to "Alice."

I then asked "Alice" to tell Michelle Duggar I didn't appreciate her using my telephone as a mouthpiece for her fear-mongering and hatred; to keep her bigotry and hatred out of my life and I would keep my common sense and rational thinking out of hers. I then told her to have great day in my best "Christian" voice.

Re: “UPDATE: Little Rock Air Force Base on lockdown most of day

Amazing. A colossal military complex rendered virtually incapacitated by "a (single) suspicious individual." This should be a wake-up call for anyone who still thinks our federal government puts "we the people" first when it comes to security. The first priority of the military-industrial juggernaut, which is supposedly in place to protect us, is to protect itself. The people be damned. The security state and the supremacy of the military are two classic signifiers of an emerging totalitarian regime.

I'm amazed at how so many people willfully blind themselves to the truth of our growing security and surveillance state.

Add to this the systematized suppression of voting rights, the militarization of local police forces, the incarceration of one quarter of the world's prison population, the blurring of lines between religion and corporations in the Hobby Lobby decision and the blurring of lines between people and corporations in Citizens United decision, and it's not that hard to see the writing on the wall.…

We're fast-tracking to the point where it won't take that much to declare martial law in this country.

Re: “Oops. Voter ID advocate Asa Hutchinson forgets Voter ID at polls

Not only do you have to present a photo id to vote early, but after you've handed it over to the clerk, you have to verbally repeat the information on it out loud, or you're not allowed to vote. That's what happened to me Monday.

Re: “Tom Cotton supports legalized employment discrimination against gay people

The protection of the corporate class and the suppression of the work force-- two classic signifyers of fascism.…
