Re: “Senate committee passes 18-week abortion ban

Yeah, but you don't live here, Steven, and you pay no taxes and you have no vote here. So, who cares what you think? I am sure, as overbearing as you are, that you have control over all the women in your family and they do whatever you instruct. Well, like it or not, there are lots of us who are not at all intimidated by control freak men like you. In fact, I have to think that it is some lack of confidence in your manhood or abject fear of women that spurs you to try to force your will on us. Good luck with that. Believe me, far better men than you have tried.

Re: “Arkansans for a Fair Wage pushes back against Ballinger proposal to roll back minimum wage

Oh, that finishes explaining everything, Steve. We poor old ignorant Arkies laugh at you transplanted Californians. I've not met one of you who didn't think that you had all the answers and were going to impart your vast knowledge to all of us and turn our state into a California suburb. You are a joke to us and you are so arrogant that you don't even realize it. If our state is so ignorant and California is so wonderful, why did you move here? Couldn't you find a job in that oh-so golden state? I've been to California lots of times and watched the houses that fools built on unstable hillsides slide off into the ocean. Yeah, ya'll are really brilliant. I've also been to K.C. repeatedly and have met some of the weirdest people I've ever seen there. The quality of the food is not my point. It is the lack of quality of the people with whom I have personally interacted that is the basis for my opinion. My suggestion is, that if it is so bad here in middle America, move back to the West Coast. Eventually the whole place is going to slide off into the ocean and we'll be rid of a whole bunch of know-it-alls. But, back to the point of this particular article, since you aren't being paid in Arkansas, and you pay no taxes here, who cares what you think about our laws? I see no point in giving any more credence to your inane, childish, name-calling blathering.

Re: “Government asks judge to deny Jeremy Hutchinson's motion to dismiss, reveal more details on investigation

Lying, cheating and stealing seem to be the modi operandi of the current time, from the very top down. Our legislature is filled with these sniveling crooks and no one seems to care about anything but themselves. The current group of so-called "leaders" here in our state and in D.C. seem to echo Gordon Gekko in their thinking "greed is good". What a wonderful lesson to teach our children.

Re: “Stand Your Ground proposal falls in committee (UPDATED)

Oh yes, it's the mothers that lie, not the gun-worshipers like Edo. Yesterday, several kids brought guns to our local Freshman Academy ( used to be the first year of high school). Thankfully, law enforcement was tipped off and the only results were their arrests. My county is now paying for school resource officers in every school because of the prevalence of guns among youngsters and those who want to kill your kids. As I have said, I own guns and come from a family of Arkansans who, for years, belonged to the NRA until that group became nothing but sleazy lobbyists. And yet, Edo tries to paint himself and the NRA as the moral high ground and the mother's of these children as liars. Wonder how he would feel if his child or grandchild was killed? The fact is, Ballinger and Garner are fully in the back pocket of the NRA and will do anything they command because they have been bought and paid for. I'll bet on an angry Mom over gutless wonders like Ballinger and Garner any day of the world.

Re: “Race, guns, and the Arkansas legislature

C, I am a long-time moderate, Independent so don't try to put me in any little box so your little mind can comprehend the way I believe. If you are from this state, which I doubt, you would know that Ballinger does absolutely nothing that doesn't have financial benefits for him. He took money from 11 PACs, including those representing the NRA, during his last election bid. The NRA is all about money, period. If you believe they care anything about any rights you have, how about looking at this bridge I have for sale in Brooklyn.

Re: “Senate committee passes 18-week abortion ban

Steven wants to control all women, not just those in Missouri. He feels the need to force his repressive beliefs and inane comments on those of us in Arkansas too. Frankly, Steven, I could care less what you think about our laws. When you are paying taxes here, then you have a vote.

Re: “Arkansans for a Fair Wage pushes back against Ballinger proposal to roll back minimum wage

Wow, Missouri. Well, that explains a whole lot. I am a proud, native Arkansan who has been to MO to what, in those hills, they call an "entertainment spot". I wanted to take my mother to the nicest restaurant there. The table cloths were dirty, and the waitress didn't bother to put her cigarette down before taking our orders. We left that state vowing never to return. So, I will let you handle MO, it seems to be more your speed anyway.
