Re: “For the record: Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a) a liar b) full of 'HuckaBS'

Rex, don't think for a minute that any us think what that group did to Tucker Carlson is acceptable. It isn't. BUT... and this is a big but... Tucker is not the President. Our discussion involves a tyrant little man dictator who attacks those who question him in any way. He says despicable things about SO many people. Huckleberry acts SO indignant about the intern, yet defends her leader when he congratulates the Congressman who put the journalist in a head lock and threw him to the ground. You NOR your president can justify this behavior.

Re: “Growing free speech concern on Israel boycott law

I had to sign this agreement to do business with a state agency. I'm not part of any boycott, but I thought it was definitely a restriction on MY rights making me sign the agreement.

Re: “Tom Cotton "has surpassed Ted Cruz as the most disliked member of the Senate"

Ken, your post is really sad. So many partial facts, lies, etc. Nobody is trying to tell you how to think. But thinking is critical and clearly you aren't. If you fail to see the corruption that has filled DC compliments of your president, then you are completely blind. Look how many have been fired, resigned, or under investigation? How many from the Obama years were fired? How many convictions? As for your pathetic rehash of the kkk, we all know the same racists who were dems back in the hey day of the kkk, moved to the GOP after the integration began.

Re: “Tom Cotton "has surpassed Ted Cruz as the most disliked member of the Senate"

Steven, I have no idea where you get your news or alternative facts, but you need to find new sources. The younger generation is totally turning against the GOP and their actions that show such hatred for anyone different than themselves. You are SO jumping the gun on North Korea. Your president tried the same taunt as you regarding the 3 prisoners in blaming Obama for not bringing them home. Oddly, two of the prisoners were captured under your presidents term in office. Korea does not have peace yet nor is it de-nuclearized. Kim is an expert at playing games. As for corrupt officials in an administration, 45 has them all topped. Just look at how many have been fired, resigned, or under investigation. Nothing like it in history for the first 18 months of a president. You dont even mention Cohen now admitting taking over a million dollars to gain access to big lobbyists and even a Russian oligarch. You have lost all credibility by your posts.

Re: “Governor announces reduction in workers comp insurance rates, workplace fatalities

Death, I would agree with you, but then you get an employee who keeps working the system and making multiple claims on hard to confirm injuries. Then you need WC more than ever. Believe me there are plenty of lawyers out there just waiting to latch onto a claim.

Re: “Cockfighting busted in Sevier County

Suburb lover, I AM a liberal white (not in a gated community) and that makes absolutely NO difference in this matter. Culture or not, it is illegal and inhumane. Your comment is like saying "murder in Columbia is part of their culture and popular". Not all cockfighting in AR is by Latino's. I see hundreds of roosters tethered to outdoor lean-toos all the time around here and they aren't owned by Latinos.

Re: “AEDC director adds first-class travel costs to ethics form

I'm shocked at the expenses he charged the agency, not counting the upgrades. Having traveled to Europe (multi-countries) numerous times, I have NEVER spent what he spent on air fair. Spending $7000 on coach class tickets is robbery to the tax payers of AR. Unless he booked tickets the day he left, these fairs are impossibly ridiculous. Especially once you get to Europe. There are numerous airlines who charge next to nothing to city hop Europe. Something is fishy about these bills even excluding the non-reporting. Of course with the top notch ethics regulations, it doesn't matter if he didn't report. They are always allowed 30 days to make amendments to reports once they are discovered.
