Re: “Pulaski votes

Well up here in Carroll County I was denied the possibility of a paper ballot. I was told that paper ballots have been available to all early voting but today machines only. I went to the Eureka Springs courthouse and then called the County Clerk Jamie Corrreia in Berryville who told me to quit watching the news about these machines... I told her I have no television/broadcast or satellite that I read reports on these matters and blogs like bradblog.

Hence I did not vote. This system is a complete sham. Criminals are still in charge! Best not to encourage them in any way.

Re: “Tom Cotton to announce for U.S. Senate

DPA, Ross, Pryor, their owners must be funding all sides of this. Just like national Democrats and Claire McCaskill funded their wingnutty "opponents".

There is no potential win for the constitution, rule of law (especially at the top), the economy or the 99 percent in any AR race we know of so far.... that is yet again the feature of this entirely corrupt bribe based political/electoral system.

Re: “Why tax 'reform' is doomed

Here's a few reform suggestions.

Throw out the entire tax code. Begin anew.
Tax the rich like it's 1959! Start with the Walton siblings who have over 80,000 millions.... and the Kochs who have over 50,000 millions. Seize offshore havens with tens of trillions trillions hidden by the rich individuals and corporations. Use the military if need be.
Constitutionally outlaw any ability to dedicate tax streams to privateers. (Obamney not care)

If someone earns less than 40k a year... there is no tax. Exception for Social Security and Medicare for all.

The new progressively scaled tax code should be so simple and straight forward that everyone utilizes a form as simple as the 1040EZ. It should be the ONLY tax form for all individuals. Otherwise "I don't understand" should be such an acceptable excuse it triggers automatic immunity from prosecution for evasion

Most of all quit pretending ponzi schemers and their bribed/bought snake oil salesmen in either party are anything but part of the criminally corrupt problem. Obama, Max Baucus? Come on, Max! Negotiating with the devil may make for good copy, but the Game of Thrones should be a warning not a road map.

Re: “Entergy cutting 165 jobs in Arkansas

I guess this means all those electric lines are now buried, hundreds of thousands of homes are now semi-solar connected to the grid and that AR Nuclear One holocaust is fully decomissioned.

Or that the CEO is due for a raise.

Re: “Democratic Party presses Tim Griffin on pipeline issues

Oh my... there is a zombie, I mean a DPA. It spoke, without a spine. How many months after a spill? Asking that old Exxon fox to report on it's bloody henhouse management report again.

That will show 'em!

Re: “Coming soon, the House Republican anti-Obama/health care road show

I hope you have a bottle of dramamine handy after all the deceptive spin you repeatedly have to perform in order to justify your neoliberal TINAism (there is no alternative).

Lower eligibility of expanded medicare to date of birth and negotiate prices, especially of drugs. Health care for all, no matter their circumstance for half the GDP we spend today. Can be done in a year with existing one page 20 year old bills submitted in the U.S. House.

It's so simple even you down there in the bottom land should be able to see it... but your paycheck must depend on it never happening.
