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

Heres a good litmus test: What would Jesus do? Would he make sure people are healthy or would he try and save money from the poorest?

Re: “First, get a job

All this takes me back to old times. Asa, Saline County, Kirk Lane , Dan Harmon.…

Oh the good ole days.

Re: “Jan Morgan has won the Republican gubernatorial primary

This is a great big steaming pile of a dog and pony show. The last cut brought a hundred newly created state positions of over 100K a year to all of his cronies who barely have a degree.

You have highly educated people who have spent their entire lives earning advanced degrees so that for a short 8-10 year span, have the chance to lead their chosen field. Instead those people are getting the shaft and their opportunity has been stolen by anyone who has donated to the campaign.

Im sure that Bebee was guilty of more than just placing Shane Broadway over ADHE, but I sure cant think of them now. Asa has placed cronies all over the state government that all of them promised to downsize and make more efficient.

This ploy will dissolve as soon as the primary is over and the big money in Arkansas will prove they arent serious about making government better. This is unfuckingbelievable and disgusting.

Re: “Governor points to declining Medicaid rolls in seeking renewal of Arkansas Works from legislature

I do not think it should be a source of pride that fewer poor people have access to health care in a first world nation. I dont think these Christians are reading the same bible I am.

Re: “State still holds reins over youth lockups

Please explain to me this: A Republican Governor promises to streamline state government starting with the largest state agency, DHS. Under Governor Beebe, the Director made around 150K and had one, sometimes two low level communications staff . The new Republican Governor hired a Director at over 200K and the communications staff has increased from 1 to 10 UNDER A REPUBLICAN! The newly created Chief of Communications, who by the way is the same person John Selig wouldn't pay a mid-level salary, now earns 100K a year. She has also hired 10 staff for her new communications team, most at salaries much more than existing employees with years more experience.

Re: “Coal is not coming back, Trump or no Trump

You forgot the one option that actually makes sense; nuclear.

Re: “Plant of the year: Cannabis sativa

Never mind, the Governor says he's not going to allow it. So much for the people rule.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Governor Asa Hutchinson says he's willing to consider a ban on the smoking of medical marijuana if it gets passed by the legislature.
