Re: “Little Rock leadership misses its fault in tax woes

Clayton, years ago I heard a group debate the idea of a municipal income tax. The downside is that many businesses could simply move their headquarters to NLR or elsewhere. Then, the city could lose their "job dominance." The idea died fairly quickly.

PTDFL, the irony is too funny to ignore. They are calling for snow in Hell. LOL.

Re: “No Taxation Without Representation group forms for Little Rock school tax vote UPDATE

I apologize for my misunderstanding. Aside from that, I fear that the negativity surrounding the LRSD is going to make future mills difficult to pass, and that would be sad.

Re: “No Taxation Without Representation group forms for Little Rock school tax vote UPDATE

This is dangerous. The folks who claim to be "pro-LRSD" are campaigning to NOT extend the mills. If they are successful, the LRSD will have to look at more cost-cutting opportunities (school closings?).

Although there are different beliefs on how to provide the best education to our kids, I believe most folks want more for our kids. But, somehow, there seems to be a belief that cutting funding is the solution. Or, they say, "If we can't be in charge, we will take away your money and wreck the district."

Folks for LRSD say cut their funding. Folks against LRSD say cut their funding. So, I guess we all agree. And that is a bad thing. I don't see how cutting funding helps the kids. RIP LRSD.

If we are able to take guns into bars, please refer to them as saloons going forward.

Re: “Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway and Tel Aviv)

I sat down the other day with 3 Republicans. State politics came up and one said, "we have to get someone else in Rapert's slot." LOL.

Re: “Senate bids adios to Robert E. Lee Holiday. On to the House

1. How long has Arkansas observed a holiday on the same day for these two guys?

2. How long has the Arkansas legislature been controlled by Republicans?
