Re: “Satan vs. the supremacists UPDATE

I'm not dedicated to Satan and basically against anything having to do with Satan, but I DO believe they have as much right as Stanley does to erect their statue. Stanley started this mess and now the courts will have to handle the fallout.

Re: “UPDATE: Teachers fear Hutchinson administration has targeted LR teachers union and is pushing for more charters

Justsomeguy, their end game is the complete destruction of public schools and the creation of a new industry in for-profit charter schools. The Walton's don't seem to care at all about public schools. They know what they are doing will create an economic disaster for public systems and then city leaders will have to go along with their charter vision due to resources (or lack there of). Charter schools have been found to be rife with fraud. They don't have ANY oversight other than CEO's who only need to show a profit. They don't have to have licensed teachers. They don't have to take all students. The Waltons got their man Key in place and the rest is history. LRSD had maybe three failing schools and they jumped on the chance to take over the entire district. Other systems in the state have had the same percentage of failing schools, yet remain independent. The Waltons are the worst thing to ever happen to public education. Their theory is the actions of the foundation would make public schools more competitive and better. In reality, they have all the cards and it is not a fair market competition.

Re: “UPDATE: Teachers fear Hutchinson administration has targeted LR teachers union and is pushing for more charters

Johnny Key is an embarrassment to our state. When you have to dumb down the requirements in order to make the position fit the ineptness of the applicant, then you know you are in trouble. It has been clear for some time Key is under the wings of the Waltons. I have watched failing Charter Schools continue to operate while public schools are taken over. I have watched Key allow many more Charters open while sucking students and teachers further away from the district. It is hard for them to justify the test scores (most are worse than the public schools) and argue at the same time how bad the public school system. Until the current political machine is changed in AR, I see the system continually declining.

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

While I used to be against term limits, Bigelow Bob is a poster child for having term limits again. I can't fathom how Ballenger and the others, who were tied up in the illegal use of tax money being given to sketchy charities, have remained free and clear. Hendren, Hutchinson, and many others need to be held accountable. Bigelow really does have the record for worst legislators ever elected. Long history of doing so.

Re: “U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman goes on attack against advocates for the disabled UPDATE

He must be getting his talking points from the same person as some of my friends. More than once I have heard that comparison about people boating are the ones polluting the river with feces and baby diapers, etc. There is absolutely no way these occurrences come close to what the hog farm is putting in the creek. The GOP knows this as does the regulatory agencies. That is why they left the creek off the list of endangered bodies of water. They don't have to regulate, investigate, or find out where the pollution is coming from.

Re: “The media will be fed controlled message during Jeff Sessions' Arkansas visit

razorblade, you never fail to entertain. I could provide you with a multitude of great reporting done by CNN, the WP, the NYT, but you and your ilk clearly ignore ANY news that reflects badly on your president and treat it as "fake news". Of course if it is a positive reflection, then it is on Fox. You can't have it both ways. Much like 45 used to say all unemployment and GDP figures were wrong/fake. Now that he is in the WH, suddenly all the numbers are fair and accurate. I'm constantly amazed at the hypocrisy on the right.

Re: “Trump people and their enemy. Plus: Got your grocery ID card?

Steven, you clearly listen to bratbart and alex jones, because no sane person would repeat such nonsense. You and your ilk have turned into jelly brains who don't do any real research, just repeat over and over. Reporters do make mistakes, but they retract and correct. Your president lies on a daily basis and NEVER corrects or apologizes. Even with video/audio proof of what 45 says next to video/audio saying he didn't say it, you sill chose to believe your president instead of your own eyes and ears. Sickening.
