  • 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: “UAMS reduces deficit by $32 million

$32M 300 layoffs more or less = $106,666

$106,666-$27,889666 (27% fringe)= 300 people making $77,866. If fewer than 300, then that salary cost goes up. Looking at the workforce not sure that makes sense. I know a LOT of maintenance is deferred-leaking roofs in Ed I. I note other article Arkansas Works down, which ultimately leads to unreimbursed care.

After Repub throw backs crawling from under rocks, it is great to see decent, norma, honest, regular and sane folks emerge.

Re: “Jason Rapert spreads his message

25On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. Teacher, he asked, what must I do to inherit eternal life?
26What is written in the Law? he replied. How do you read it?
27He answered, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind[a]; and, Love your neighbor as yourself.[b]
28You have answered correctly, Jesus replied. Do this and you will live.
29But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, And who is my neighbor?
30In reply Jesus said: A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33But a Republican, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took no pity on him. 34He went to him and asked him for insurance card. Verily, verily the man said, I was on ObamaCare, and yet the Pharisee Republicans cast me out. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to jail, and the for profit correctional company took no care of him. 35The next day he took out two denarii from the injured man, and gave them to a Republican member of the Arkansas General Assembly, who kept it. Do not look after him, he said, and when I return, no one will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.
36Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?
37The expert in the law replied, The one who had mercy on him.
Jesus told him, Go and do likewise.

Re: “Survey: UAMS faculty opposed to tenure change proposal

'Dean would rising' - should be 'resign', rather than ironic 'rising'
