Re: “Above the law

When they say it's about adoptions, it's really about sanctions. Sanctions put in place because Putin, the corrupt Russian government, and the oligarchs shouldn't get away with murder.…

Re: “The president can't break the law, sayeth Donald Trump

I watched the movie Frost Nixon and still remember this being a shocking, or wincing, moment in the movie. Here's the clip from the real interview.

When Trump breaks a law and everyone finds out it won't be considered illegal, I have a feeling not enough people are going to be outraged.

Re: “Dark money attacks now top $1.5 million, according to Goodson campaign

Just saw an ad against Hixson from the group portraying him soft on a child abuser/rapist, letting a retrial occur on a technicality. So, I guess the group is against fair trials.

Re: “Poll finds broad support for state Earned Income Tax Credit, afterschool and summer programs

I think most Arkansans would agree:
paid paternity/maternity leave of at least 4 weeks and maybe as much as 8 weeks per child
paid sick leave of at least 10 days per year for all employees working in Arkansas (it's a community health issue)
increase of the minimum wage for waitpersons, at least to half of the minimum wage (I would hope more than that)
another increase of 50 cents or more to the current minimum wage

I'm not as sure, but I would hope most would agree that Arkansas workers are entitled to paid family leave of at least 4 weeks or more so that family members might be able to take care of their child or an immediate family member (spouse, parent) if some debilitating injury or illness occurs per year.

Re: “Donald Trump denies affair with Stormy Daniels

He won't insult her though. No name calling, right? Did I miss it? No "Lying Whore Daniels"? Not even an insult to her acting in films?

And, Trump personally hasn't denied the claims. He puts his people out there with a blanket "inaccurate claims" rebuttal. Nice. Like a decimal was misplaced or a color mislabeled.

The claims are inaccurate? Which ones?

She didn't spank him with a magazine? That never happened? Or did say 3 times but it was only twice?
They didn't have a dinner in his hotel room? Or, was it food but he wouldn't classify it as dinner?
They didn't watch a Shark Week documentary together? Was a different Shark documentary?
He didn't sit on the edge of the bed expecting sex, or not the way she mimed it?
He didn't tease Stormy with a potential part on The Apprentice?
He did wear a condom, or didn't?
He did or didn't know about the payoff by his lawyer? Before or after? The lawyer never mentioned it? Really? Or when did he know about the payoff?

He wants it both ways. He wants some Trumpers knowing it's true and he's getting away with it because that's what they love about him and others to think it's made up.

I like this column.…

Re: “How Arkansas used a computer formula to cut services to the disabled

First they shut down In Home Services at the health department. This last year has cuts in home health hours which inevitably will force some Arkansans out of their homes and into nursing homes. Excuse me for thinking nursing home owners and their lackeys are pulling strings at the governor's office.
