Re: “Early warning: Religious Right again is targeting Arkansas Governor's School

Forget the politics of it, I don't see how Jerry Cox is even remotely qualified to teach anything. A bachelors from SAU and 25 years experience of organizing against civil rights?

Re: “Tom Cotton: it's the immigrants, not the economy, stupid

You would be hard pressed to invent from scratch a worst human than Tom Cotton. I have no clue how he sleeps at night, he is just throughly a rotten human.

Re: “Jan Morgan joins the hog farm fight on the hogs' side UPDATE

Such a farce. We can all fully support Arkansas agriculture, farmers and enjoy the hell out of a great pulled pork sandwich without allowing an industrial hog farm in the Buffalo River watershed. Yes, we can walk and chew gum at the same time.

"The facility, via its application, is permitted to store around 2.3 million gallons of feces and urine in two large waste ponds per a 180-day cycle. As with most CAFO operations, there is no sewage treatment for the waste beyond a process for distributing it on land via nearby application fieldsa practice that often contaminates groundwater and poses serious risks to public health"

Re: “Blue Hog Report digs up legislative entanglement from divorce court record

Give me a break Razorblade. After the GOP wasted $80 million of taxpayer money "investigating" the President's sex life?

But Matt discussing public records is a privacy invasion.

Re: “Tim Griffin's voter caging back in the news thanks to Roy Moore

Wannabe is spot on, Tim Griffin is one of the sorriest p.o.s ever, much less to be a statewide elected official. He is lower than pond scum. And a world class dipshit to boot.

Re: “Fayetteville mulls corporate welfare for TV show. Worth it?

This article is profoundly ignorant. There are great film incentive programs, that have been incredibly rewarding to the state in both terms of fostering homegrown talent and becoming a destination for some incredible shows. Georgia (where Ozark is filmed, Walking Dead, Archer and about a thousand other shows) is an excellent example of a well done incentive program. New Mexico (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and many others) is another very well-done program. Louisiana's was overly rewarding to big budget productions but tell me would a film industry be thriving in Shreveport,LA without the program? The city of Austin also had incentives as well.

Why? Because attracting artistic and creative human beings to your city or your state is a really really really good thing for the state. Fostering a renewable industry that creates massive positive economic impact without overusing your roads or water or exhausting natural resources ... is the exact type of new economy Arkansas should want to encourage.

This is exactly how economic incentives should be done to encourage growth of an industry that you want to come to the state. At the very least, stop stifling homegrown Arkansas talent by punishing them if they want to film in their home state. Could we please not get in our own way here: can you imagine how much more film production we could have in the state just from homegrown talent if we could just be competitive with Georgia?

You are applying the corporate welfare argument that you would be okay to wield against a steel plant or car manufacturer. But fostering a creative class and the potential to grow an entire industry with film in Arkansas would have vastly more positive economic impact than just the dollars associated with the length of that one TV shows production run. Dare you to google the talent coming out of the North Carolina School for the Arts. Imagine coupling film with the investment Alice Walton has already made to grow the Arts at the University of Arkansas and the already incredible art community anchor that is Crystal Bridges .... the possibilities are endless.

Please could we stop suffering from a failure of imagination. Especially deflating when it is coming from knee jerk uninformed liberal reaction to anything they deem "corporate welfare."
