Re: “Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in dead heat in Iowa

Don't worry about New Hampshire...Bernie is kinda like Wilson W. Wilson. Most hated man of 1912 I hear...

Re: “Thieves with sledgehammers rob Sissy's Log Cabin

The leading individual is almost certainly caucasian; perhaps others in the gang are as well. Local merchants should hire a night watch (pepper sprays and tasers only please; these are teenagers or maybe only young adults w/ an entire life in front of them...please be merciful) to alert authorities once they're discovered.

The 5th suspect is seen fleeing early on in the footage. They will probably strike again together if not apprehended quickly. Those in the geographical proximity must be vigilant.
Step up patrols.

Re: “Hutchinson's tax cut push and its connection to the private option vote

When all else has failed, go back to the beginning. What more have we to lose?

Democratic leaders must vote for the Private Option (gasp, Obamacare) because it will survive King vs. Burwell and Jeb Bush/Marco Rubio (somebody has to move) will lose to Clinton/Webb.

Never fold to the last players to ante up.

Re: “The Drown Our Sorrows Edition

Please don't use GD. It adds nothing to the discussion from the "loyal minority party".

When the 70+ year-old Democratic city alderman in my ward rolled up on my driveway on Hallowe'en night and asked for my vote I had only one response:

"already did"

After shaking his hand and saying thank-you (he was re-elected, btw) I told him thanks for not running independent and sticking with the Democratic Party.

He smiled.

"He, he, he.." he snickered. "Nobody will like them, once they're in charge."

My soul had its respite.

Re: “The Scary Pre-Election Edition

"French Hays"

And I'm getting emails from the DPA about "give me $5 because our database went down" and we have (R) friendly mailer about a "vote audit"...

(it's not an audit)

Come November 5th, 2014, Tyler Pearson and Matt Campbell are the de facto leaders of the Democratic Party of the State of Arkansas or there is going to be a lot of independents come 2016. In today's modern world, we can Greg Orman them faster than we can convince them to vote (D).

A win is a win. Happy Halloween and everyone please be safe.

Re: “Wastewater utility fires operations manager Miller
