  • Outsourcing state government

    As a citizen, I don't get to choose not to pay taxes because I don't like what the Arkansas state government is spending state and federal money on, such as paying a Chinese company, Sun Paper, approximately $1 billion to build a paper mill in Clark County.

Re: “Monkey wrenches

The phrase 'intake, compression, power, exhaust' brings only blank stares these days.

Re: “Calling Leslie Rutledge: A good suit to join

Off the subject a bit, but in terms of voting rights, ID, whither the Republic,and voter control etc. the first Arkansas lynching recorded was Aug 1836, "Bunch" (no first name, but no need for such if you are going to hang)
Chicot County, black male, accused if that is the word "tried to vote, assaulted white man"

Re: “Ten Commandments monument moves closer to lawsuit

Setting up a graven image for Church-ianity "look at me, look at me" folks to worship. If it is not in your heart, planting a 3 ton stone ain't gonna help. Meanwhile, on Death Row.....

Re: “House adopts impeachment rule; Walker already talking lawsuit

Constitution of the United States, Section 9: Limits on Congress

The ninth section of Article One places limits on Congress' powers:


No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.

"A bill of attainder (also known as an act of attainder or writ of attainder or bill of pains and penalties) is an act of a legislature declaring a person or group of persons guilty of some crime and punishing them, often without a trial. As with attainder resulting from the normal judicial process, the effect of such a bill is to nullify the targeted person's civil rights, most notably the right to own property (and thus pass it on to heirs), the right to a title of nobility, and, in at least the original usage, the right to life itself."

I have never before used 'attainder' in a sentence but before I never needed to.
