Re: “Independent Citizens Commission hears Supreme Court request for another major pay raise

The judges failed to mention the pension benefits they will receive as reported earlier this month by the Gazette. Turns out retirees receive about $85K annually. The state kicks in $4 mil each year and court fees add another half mil (which I think is a colossal conflict of interest) for roughly 200 active judges. That works out to more than they are requesting for an increase. So I say they deserve no more than a 2% raise like everyone else.

Re: “Payday lenders on the march at legislature

Keeping them barefoot and pregnant reappears in Arkansas to now include all the poor folks. Shame, shame on Rutledge and the heartless legislators who are expanding loan sharking.

I'll tell you what is vital. When the people exercise their vote to enact constitutional changes to the law, it is vitally undemocratic for legislators to change and ignore what the people voted for. If the legislature wants to change what the people voted for then they need to take it back to the voters and stop following the whims of lobbyists who do not represent the people.i

Re: “The planet keeps getting hotter

So the disappearance of polar ice is "margin of error". Spoken like a true Trump supporter and believer in the tooth fairy.

Lowery needs to add to his voter ID bill a requirement that anyone visiting an internet dating website site has to furnish their ID.

Re: “Benghazi! Partisan probe doesn't pan out

Going on a witch hunt no matter how much money is spent does not lead to finding a witch unless one looks back at the perpetrators of the hunt.
