  • 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: “Think Big Little Rock makes its pitch to Little Rock Chamber

Justsomeguy-
Decades of research, including important research from UALR, UAMS and Arkansas Children's Hospital (Kramer Project,RWJ Foundation Infant Heath and Development Program support lifelong advantages to Pre-k.

My momma had a Masters Degree and stayed home with us, but thanks to the US Govt, GI Bill etc allowed my dad to make enough to support a family on a single income. Same with me. But my adult children, in this economy, not so.

Rather then take the bait of your"free babysitting" comment let me counter with a question.

This is Friday. Imagine Monday morning, every single working mother in the United States, stayed home from work. No let's make it simpler. Assume Monday morning every working mother, who is employed at a central Arkansas hospital stayed home. You want to get sick on that day? Or every working mother with a young child who works in a bank stayed home. You want to try and get any important financial transactions done on that day?

This economy is totally dependent on working moms, and makes concessions for corporate jets, than the needs of families with children.

Re: “High caseloads hinder face-to-face visits with foster kids

We have the system the Gov and Legislature pay for. The First Lady has a genuine understanding of the issues, and needs to weigh in.
