Re: “LR Chamber praises Kurrus, but silent on the outrage

They may as well send a few "thoughts and prayers" while they're being "concerned," since one is about as effective as the other.

Re: “Rep. Josh Miller, recipient of significant government assistance, opposes Medicaid expansion in Arkansas

"A coldly rational person might say a cook in a fast-food restaurant, working long hours at low pay to feed a family, looks more deserving than an uninsured person injured on a drunken joy ride. I would not. No one should be pre-judged on a subjective merit test for health care. We are all God's children — all residents of a country Republicans like to call exceptional, despite its lack of universal health care."

There would be quite a few who might say the cook in a fast food restaurant, being too sorry to better his or her own lot, should be left to starve by the side of the road. Want health insurance? Work for it. Want better pay? Work for it.

That there are not enough better paying jobs that provide health insurance for everyone is a mere technicality. And, to make certain the poor never forget their place at the bottom of the heap, we, as a society, need to make sure they never forget to genuflect to their betters on the next rung up the ladder.

The Republican Party stalwarts, may White American Protestant Jebus bless their tiny, little black hearts, labor mightily day and night to put that very principle into law from sea to shining sea.

Re: “We watched "God's Not Dead 2" so you wouldn't have to

So, Anti-Liberal, when exactly did that asinine movie you are blathering about hit the theaters? Had I known, I could have missed it on purpose, rather than simply because I never knew there was such.

Perhaps not all Liberals fit so neatly into that box you try to stuff them in. Do you even know any real Liberals? Because none of the Liberals I know are that hostile toward Christianity, even those of us who don't believe. I just wish Christianity would get off its high horse and stop trying to persecute itself.

Re: “Jury finds Arron Lewis guilty of capital murder and kidnapping in the death of Beverly Carter

Plainjim, the prosecutor waived the death penalty because the Carter family requested that he do so. He was honoring their wishes. Otherwise, the case being such a slam dunk, I think he would have asked for it.

Re: “Ethics Commission to hold hearing on 22 potential violations by Dennis Milligan

I suppose it's a good thing Milligan came in to restore public confidence and trust in the State Treasurer's office. Imagine the mischief he would have indulged in if he'd campaigned on a promise to trash the office to Hell and back.

If memory serves me correctly, the State Treasury had confidence and trust restored during the 18 month tenure of Charles Robinson, who was appointed by former Governor Beebe to set things right following the reign of Martha Shoffner. Mr. Robinson did as his reputation suggested he would; he quietly and without benefit of lawsuits, ethics breaches, or front page newspaper stories, restored the office to serving as the state's banker, making sure procedures were put into place to keep the funds entrusted to it secure and available when needed.

For all his bluster about "cleaning up the State Treasury," Milligan has done little but step on his own dick every time he makes a move. That usually happens to martinets who suddenly think they got elected to something because of their own perceived magnificence. Before all of this is over, perhaps he and his elected predecessor can compare notes on their experiences as they pass notes back and forth between their cell doors.

And really, how stupid does one have to be to screw up the job of state treasurer? The most successful ones were had the ability to hire people who could do their jobs and stay off the radar. Same for the rest of the state offices, save Governor and AG, who are actually supposed to know something. Even Mark (not the race car driver) Martin finally figured out if he would just stay the hell in Prairie Grove, he would stay out of the papers. It's only when he tries to do something that he screws things up.

Re: “Sen. Boozman and his challenger, Conner Eldridge, on presidential gun control

“President Obama has tried time and time again to strip law-abiding Americans of their Second Amendment rights and each time, Congress has stood up for the Constitution."

Really? When and when again? Any examples from that waste of D.C. upholstery? I can just as easily say Senator Boozman, for recreation and enjoyment, enjoys stomping kittens to death in the bathtub of his Georgetown apartment while masturbating to the soulful strains of "Eye of the Tiger." As long as I don't have to provide any kind of evidence to say it happened, who's to say it doesn't? Right? Is that how this game works?

And how about this claim? "The Senate has attempted to take real action to reduce gun violence by considering measures that would prevent terrorists from obtaining firearms, incentivize states to provide mental health records for background checks, and criminalize straw purchasing and weapons trafficking in a responsible way. Unfortunately, the President’s own party blocked these real common sense measures from moving forward in the Senate."

When did all of this happen? What real action? What common sense measures? (saying no doesn't count) And in what country? And what's up with Eldridge? Trying to out-Republican the Republicans is like crapping in the woods to make people think you're a grizzly bear. It only fools one fool.

I suppose now the ammosexuals can drop the pretense of saying we just need to enforce the laws currently on the books. Besides not knowing what those laws even consist of, this move on the part of President Obama has them retreating into their bunkers and grabbing all their guns close so they can pet and soothe the poor, misunderstood and unfairly maligned innocent little firearms. They don't want to enforce existing laws. They don't want any laws standing between themselves and their choice of penis extender. The President has the obligation to enforce existing law to the extend he is authorized by the Constitution but let him say one word about guns and heads explode from sea to shining sea in the Land of the Too Chickenshit to buy Groceries Without Packing Heat and the Home of the Psychotically Paranoid.

Because, after all, laws don't stop criminals. They only interfere with the rights of law abiding, decent, christian folk like all the white folks in my sewing circle who just want to own a shitload of guns and a bunker full of ammo "just in case the gubmint comes for my Constitutional rights." Because in that land of nut jobs and whackos, the U.S. Constitution is a very short and easily understood document with no preamble, no body of text, there only to offer the words of Jesus Christ himself enshrined forever, consisting only of the last 15 words of the 2nd amendment.

All this over an Executive Order that does little enough as it is and puts not one single gun owned by one single law abiding citizen at risk.

I think we can dispense with that myth of American Exceptionalism now. Apparently, we're the only ones in the world who don't know it's complete bullshit.
