Re: “Friday night flights

At the end of a long day, I usually "lurk" on the ArkTimes blog to catch up on the local news. Thursday night, when I tried to go to AT, I was redirected to a facebook error page. This was repeated around the country at thousands of sites.

Re: “Little Rock cracks down on petitioners at Riverfest

The City Attorney and the LRPD legal advisor should inform the next shift of police covering Riverfest that the cops' actions are illegal, despite what their Chamber overlords say.

In fact, since Riverfest is supposed to be a civic event on public property, petitioners should be permitted within the event itself. What better way to celebrate our country's freedoms than the actual exercise of those freedoms?

Re: “Little Rock cracks down on petitioners at Riverfest

This points out a fundamental flaw in the political system. Yes, the citizens of the state can petition for a change, IF the change is condoned by the people already in control of government.

Though petitioning sites are legal, as clarified by numerous court decisions, those in power use intimidation to prevent the circulation of the petitions by threatening and actually arresting the petitioners. By the time the charges are dismissed, the opportunity to gather signatures has passed. In addition, the harassment can be extremely expensive for the petitioners - bail costs, lost time from work, vehicle tow fees. If the petitioners succeed in winning a suit for wrongful arrest, the cost is borne by the municipality, not the individuals conniving to prevent the petitioning.

Public thoroughfares outside of the gates of events - Riverfest, State Fair, sporting events - are exactly that - public. My usual response to the police attempting to prevent my petitioning efforts is: "that is not a lawful order."

Boycott Riverfest.

Re: “Thursday line

cbb, (I'm typing slowly) If you are that disappointed about your (lack of) representation, come on down Sunday and join in. We'll save you a chair at the candidates' table. You'll be among friends.

Re: “Thursday line

If you believe, as do the two mega-parties, that voters should not be bothered with having choices when they vote (50% of candidates are unopposed in Arkansas' General Election), you may not be interested to know:

The Green Party of Arkansas will have its nominating convention starting at 2pm, Sunday, May 6, 2012, at the Pipefitters Hall (1223 West Markham) in Little Rock.

As the two major parties' policies are becoming indistinguishable from each other in this state, the Green Party is attempting to confuse voters by presenting a second point of view.
