Re: “Missing State Hospital patient provided contraband

I'm half blind and I can see that it must have been love at first sight with these two. I predict they'll make beautiful, if not bat-shit crazy babies and perhaps one day one of those kids will grow up to work for Cambridge Analytica. After all, Steve Bannon won't live forever. At least I hope he doesn't. Mr. Mercer is ancient but still working plenty of evil. And now we have elderly Walton children....sad

Ain't no predicting where conservative thinking or religion or greed or love will land a person. This fine looking woman may have never thought of helping a crazy patient escape a nut house....until she cast her beautiful eyes on this hunk o'crazy man.

The long dormant romantic in me forces me to wish this couple well and hope like hell they can't get their hands on a trunk load of AR-15s. But remember, far worse people than them are currently serving in arkansas government.

Re: “Texas harvests medical cannabis almost three years after law signed

I'm toying with the idea of going back to the Salvation Army store today to buy a used, soiled, tacky rose colored recliner. Since I can see dried oatmeal on the seat of the chair, I'm pretty sure some old timer spent his last days in the chair and is now in the loving arms of Jesus. So, this old recliner is a good fit for me.

Years ago during a more prosperous period, mag bought me a fine good looking new leather recliner that doesn't look like a recliner. When nothing hurt, it was a great chair to sit in. But now it feels like sitting on concrete after about 10 minutes. I'm thinking maybe this used Grandpa recliner, oatmeal stains and all might feel a ton better. I think I might mosey back to the store and give it a real good sit before I buy.

Who knows? It might be just what I need to sit through a Sanford & Son marathon on the cheap flat-screen? I'm aware I bitch a lot about pain and I know there's 10s of thousands of arkansans with bigger health problems than my own. Constant pain will make a feller,

But to paraphrase an uncle's headstone:

As you are now so once was I, As I am now you will surely be. Prepare thyself to follow me.

Re: “March for Our Lives includes Arkansas events

PS That damn Zell Miller lied about returning to arkansas to tell us again how great Bush-Cheney are-were for America. Too bad Trump never appointed angry old Zell to an important post. Follow my lead here and don't let the death of Zell Miller upset your day. See what happens when you buddy up to Republicans!

Re: “March for Our Lives includes Arkansas events

So far we haven't heard if there will be any marching in Fort Baptist tomorrow. mag and I and the girls have done some marching in the past and usually it's the same 8 or 9 people who live here and actually read the newspapers & know how to Google. We live a very quiet existence over here on the non-Walton left side of the state.

When the Revolution comes we'll notice 5 or 10 years later. This is the price we pay living in a town founded by Whigs 200 years ago.

Re: “A taste of Trump's tariffs: Rice could be a point of retaliation

Trump's friend Putin is living the happiest days of his lifetime watching Trump going down the list of things to ruin in America, doing just exactly what Putin told him to do.

The big question is... when will Trump divert Air Force One to Moscow? You don't really think Trump is going to stick around for the Impeachment trial? You don't think Trump is going to stand on the steps of the helicopter waving the peace sign with both hands for the very last you?

Well, hell to the no! When Putin thinks Trump has done all he can do to destabilize the USA, he'll give the signal and Trump will fly off to rule his empire from Red Square, leaving this country just before the failing FBI crashes thru the door with sparkly handcuffs for the entire Trump Crime Family. The Dotard may only take Ivanka with him and leave the rest to stew in HIS juices.

Any by the way, H.R. McMaster is OUT!

Re: “Why you should support the ACLU: Panhandling

"The ACLU has a budget of $130 million much of it also obtained by panhandling"

I think it's fairly clear for all to see that baker never leaves his nursing home room and has a screwed up idea of what's going on outside those concrete block walls he's living within. mag and I are proud to give our widow's mite to the ACLU and thanks for the reminder, Max. I just sent them some electronic cash to help them with all the good work they do.

In the not too distant future you might be seeing mag or me standing on a corner begging for money since one of the largest companies on earth is about to put our bitty business out of business. It royally sucks to work 10 or 12 hours per day, do everything right for decades and then lose it all.

Us tiny ants can't combat competitors bigger than the Grand Canyon when they decide to put their giant boot on our neck... So please be nice to people begging on the corner and if you recognize me a favor and pretend you don't know me. And if you have a good heart, please use the donation button above to contribute to the ACLU.
