Re: “Medical Marijuana Commission responds to complaints, hears progress on dispensary permits

Got to make sure that Travis Story and Bob Ballinger's clients get all the preferential treatment they need before commencing with helping patients. And, make sure Dr. Roman's business associates come first, as well. After all, that's what this is about, right? Corruption and cronyism. The patients run a far distant third. But, we Arkies love us some crooks. We put them right back in office. Brilliant!

Re: “Jon Woods to Donald Trump: Let's make a deal!

Wonder if this is Big Mama Patsy's idea? You know, recently re-elected Jana Della Rosa's mother and Wood's BFF. Big Mama is so corrupt she probably doesn't have one thought a day that's not about skirting the law. Maybe she could go on down to Cow Town and knock the guards in the head, like she offered to do to the FBI. Electing her daughter shows just how classless those who voted for her are.

Re: “Another guilty plea in Missouri in nonprofit scandal involving Arkansas legislators

And yet the people of Arkansas re-elected the same crooks to our legislature who either participated or facilitated by their silence the scammers. This includes our governor whose nephew has been indicted and AG Rutledge who was to busy cavorting with lobbyists to do anything about the corruption. After analyzing the state election numbers, the reasons are clear. About 50% of registered voters cast ballots, about 2/3rds of those voted for the crooks. That means we allowed about 1/3rd of the registered voters to keep these dirty legislators. This is the same number we see on a national scale. They are the rabid, hard-line party members who worship party above all else. Party above country, party above state, party above character, party above the good of the people, party above the future of their children and grandchildren. They also profess to be such pious "Christians". I'm not sure what scripture they use to justify the lying and thieving we've seen, but, they are experts at compartmentalizing their supposed morality. I guess we will have to depend upon the feds to clean our house since so many voters were too lazy to get off their butts and vote. The federal prosecutors must think we are, indeed, dumb Arkies.

Re: “Marijuana Commission sets meeting

Oh, so I guess Ballinger, Story, and Roman have all their personal faves in place now so we can proceed. Just like any pie our legislators have their fingers in, this is as crooked as a dog's hind leg. So, as a patient, while I am happy we will FINALLY have access, I am disgusted that this illicit charade was allowed and facilitated by our governor, former Speaker of the House and outgoing Senate President, who appointed all these shady dealers. Sure hope the feds bust some more of these crooks since the people of Arkansas don't have the backbone to get rid of them.

Re: “The populus did not regnat on term limits

Very disappointing. I am wondering how many young people voted? Does anyone have data on that? I'm a gray-haired, native Arkie, so, I feel I can state the following unequivocally. Too many gray-hairs are being allowed to unilaterally make these important decisions. Lots of gray-hairs get up in the morning, take a hand full of pills, then go to the polls. I feel certain, some are so stoned they don't have the capacity to do anything but find the big R or D on their ballot and check it off. No thinking required. Then we have those who pledge allegiance to their parties, no matter what crimes have been committed. Then, they go to their churches on Sunday and act like they are living by some "Christian" creed. Let's see, where in their Bible does it state that stealing, lying and cheating is OK, as long as you are a legislator? Clearly, the people of Arkansas who voted don't care about the good of our state, only their waning parties. I guess we gray-hairs are so set in our ways the legacy being left the younger generation isn't important, no matter how we say we love our kids and grandkids. So, since we are such hypocrites, the younger generations must step up and outvote us. After all, the world we leave them speaks to whether we really care about them or are just doing lip service. Thus far, we are looking really phony.

Re: “Almost 900 votes uncounted in Benton County precinct

You know, my 87-year-old mother, who is Christian in the truest sense of the word, always asks if all these self-proclaimed "Christians", so big in the parties in Arkansas, think that heaven is going to be segregated. Suppressing votes is just another form of bigotry. But hey, you know, these types have a wonderful ability to segregate their morality.

Re: “Denise Garner defeats Charlie Collins in House race

On a night when it seems Arkies still love most of the crooks in our legislature, this is exceptionally good news. I guess Trent Garner and the broke-ass NRA have lost one of their BFFs. Maybe the Ecclesia college mess played some part as well. I am for whatever works and this did. Congrats to Ms. Garner.
