Re: “Trump wants $54 billion in increased defense spending to come out of other programs

This is insane. Literally. He and his cohorts don't seem to understand that you can't dismantle everything and then expect the military to work.

Re: “NWA Worker's Justice Center: Fort Smith Sen. Jake Files' construction company avoiding $10,000 payment to subcontractor

My thoughts exactly. He assumes he gets a free pass by blaming it on subcontractors. If he doesn't know what's going on with his business, then he pretty much deserves to fail.

Re: “Sen. Tom Cotton aims to lead Trump's charge to curtail legal immigration

HB 1279 is on the calendar for tomorrow's (Feb. 9) State Agencies & Govt'l Affairs Committee meeting. They're getting rid of the requirement to..."fill the vacancy by temporary appointment until the people fill the vacancy by election at the next-ensuing general election for state and county officers to be held more than sixty (60) days and less than twelve (12) months after the vacancy occurs.
(b) If no general election for state and county officers occurs within twelve (12) months after the vacancy, the Governor shall call a special election to be held in accordance with 7-11-101 et seq. but in no event more than one hundred twenty (120) days after the vacancy occurs."

Once this bill is passed:
(a) Vacancies in the office of United States Senator shall be filled by appointment by the Governor.
(b)(1) The appointee under subsection (a) of this section shall serve during the entire unexpired Senate term if the office would in regular course be filled at the next general election if no vacancy had occurred.
(2)(A) If the office would not in regular course be filled at the next general election, the vacancy shall be filled as follows:
(i) At the next general election if the vacancy occurs four (4) months or more before the next general election; or
(ii) At the second general election after the vacancy occurs if the vacancy occurs less than four (4) months before the next general election.
(B) The person so elected shall:
(i) Take office on the first day of January following his or her election; and
(ii) Serve the remaining portion of the vacated term.

Maybe they're preparing for Cotton's departure?

There should be a law against hiring undocumented workers, be it contractors or subcontractors...

Re: “Facebook gives virtual reality gear to Arkansas schools

Microsoft, Facebook....I know we should be thrilled. But just stop for a minute and think about the main reason we use technology. It's the fastest way for us all to spend money on STUFF. So everyone's learning to code. Remember when everyone was rushing to become a computer operator? A little story: My folks had some issues with the electricity in their house. They'd open the refrigerator and the lights would flicker. The microwave would work just half the time. The hallway light didn't work and other lights throughout the house flickered on and off. It was as if their home was being taken over by gremlins. They called the electrician they normally used and he was booked into the following week. In fact, almost all of the electricians they called told them it would be at least seven days to get to them. They finally got - at a premium price - an "emergency" electrician. Who is more likely to have a secure job ten years from now - the coder? Or the electrician?

Re: “Another city rejects a concrete ditch

The City of Little Rock is being very short-sighted about I-30. They're looking at how many jobs the project will create, rather than how many residents they're going to lose by making it easier to leave town. Property within the confines of the city has become too expensive, or it's all in areas deemed "unsafe." I swear, this place is looking more and more dumpy every day. It used to be a beautiful town. I guess it still is, in isolated areas, but for how much longer? I don't get it (shakes head in dismay).
