  • 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: “Tobacco lobby-backed bill for UAMS passes Senate on second try

OMG. The bill also delays an increase in the legal smoking age and bans any future local ordinances to limit use of tobacco products.

Causing cancer to treat cancer. This is cynical BS. Shame on UAMS sinking to this level, to get NCI $$.if they say its not about the money , it is about the money.

Re: “The failing Little Rock 'school board': A blogger takes aim

Kate- it do. Of course Bob Jones tinted glasses show a different world. Once one decides that (a) taxes are the problem and (2) the wealthy can solve all our problems, and work backward from there, it all makes sense.

Re: “The failing Little Rock 'school board': A blogger takes aim

Johnny Key has a degree in? Chemical Engineering! So for book learnin' and cipherin', he is not dumb. But I was a chemistry major, and chemistry is not a qualifier for PreK, Primary, and Secondary Education. Engineering is largely about calculating maxima and minima, and outcomes. Mr Key has maintained the minima, the slope of the LRSD curve under him, dt/dp* (*progress) is an actual number- 0.

Re: “Survey puts Little Rock near bottom of happiness ranking

Trent Garner Garner has an enhanced concealed-carry permit, which permits him to carry a handgun in the Capitol, he "exercises that right when necessary."

"The only violent death on the floor of the Arkansas General Assembly occurred on December 4, 1837, in a knife brawl, Representative Major Joseph J. Anthony, Randolph County dead at the hands of Speaker of the House Colonel John Wilson, Clark County,
"...even as Rep Royston, Hempstead County tried to stop the fight by throwing a chair between the two. He was expelled and tried for murder. The Arkansas Gazette noted another example of the barbarity of life in Arkansas,
Wilson, was presiding over an extraordinary session of the General Assembly called by the Governor to deal with a predicted tax surplus, debating a wolf-scalp bill."
"...verdict of guilty of excusable homicide, the same as not guilty or justifiable killing. Wilson celebrated his acquittal, by directing the sheriff to take the jury to a dram-shop, and he would pay for all that was drunk by the jury and everybody else. " - ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ARKANSAS

Wolves, hang on to your scalps, folks in the Gallery be ready to take cover.
