  • 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: “Governor's School may move to Tech, and Rapert is hot about it

Simple. Logistics. Hendrix has no summer school term. So all facilities and program focused on G School.

Re: “Get your tax cut scorecard here

Legislator ode to Lobbyists and plutocrats, courtesy of Stevie Wonder
Oh yeah baby, like a fool I went and stayed too long
Now I'm wondering if your love's still strong
Oo baby, here I am, signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours
Then that time I went and said goodbye
Now I'm back and not ashamed to cry
Oo baby, here I am, signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours
Here I am baby
Oh, you've got the future in your hand
(Signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours)
Here I am baby,
Ah, you've got the future in your hand
(Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours)
I've done a lot of foolish things
That I really didn't mean
Hey, hey, yea, yea, didn't I, oh baby
Seen a lot of things in this old world
When I touched them they did nothing, girl
Oo baby, here I am, signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours, oh I'm yours

Re: “LeBron James, education reformer. Attn. Waltons.

That same poll showed that more than nine in 10 "strong Trump supporters" trust Trump for "accurate information" as compared to 63% who trust "family and friends" and 11% who trust the "mainstream media."

Re: “Loving libraries

I have occasion to speak to parents of young children. Fund raining School Book Fairs have replaced the library in the mind of many parents. If only schools had competition to get more kids to the library like they do for Fairs
I use the analogy"Have you ever gone to the fridge there is food there but you went to the store, and didn't know what you wanted till you got there and saw it? Stores for the stomach, libraries for the brain"

Re: “Cabot woman a $1 million lottery winner

The math is well over 1 million citizens pid her $1, plus change for the admin, and small potato scholarships. 80 times more likely to die from lightening, than win. Ah well.
