Re: “Arkansas legislature rejects bipartisan effort to study race relations

Our legislature seems far more interested in exclusion than inclusion. Otherwise, why would they keep on introducing voter I.D. laws that are clearly meant to exclude anyone but white people? Lundstrum, Collins-Smith et al want us all to march lockstep to their white, Baptist dictates. I guess that's what their Jesus tells them to do. Oh, and I am white.

Re: “Former Garland Co. Admin. Asst, dog tuxedo fan, pleads guilty to making $162K in fraudulent credit card charges

The teacher referenced above was from Booneville, not Ft. Smith. And, the dog is a bulldog, not a pug and, and the caption says, not the dog in question. I would like to point out that stupidity has no specific locale. Did you read about the two idiots in Florida trying to steal a 50+ foot high, metal utility pole by strapping it to the top of their SUV and driving down a 4 lane road? I mean, really! I'm afraid that if we had a stupid prison, as suggested, it would be overcrowded immediately and we would just have to build more and more.

Re: “SWEPCO invests in Oklahoma wind farm

Clean Line has no relationship to a wind farm. Clean Line is a 700 mile transmission line, that will destroy 8,000 acres of woodland and natural habitat in our state alone. Clean Line has NO CUSTOMERS. They have begged utilities to buy their subsidized product since 2010 and have had no takers. What does that tell us? It is a completely unnecessary project. Clean Line is using a law that has never been used before to take the public's land by eminent domain through the Dept. of Energy. (see Sec. 1222 of the 2005 Energy Policy Act). Our legislators are opposing this because thousands of Arkansans oppose this destructive and wasteful project. All the other Clean Line projects across the nation have also been shut down, due to lack of customers and the haughty attitude of their executives in thinking existing laws just don't apply to them. After all, they're from Texas! In addition, Clean Line finally became so desperate that they began telling their potential, but uncommitted customers, that they could also purchase energy generated by "dirty fossil fuels", as is allowed by law. One cannot lump all "clean" energy projects into one basket. Each one has to stand on its own merits and Clean Line has none. The only thing that has ever been "green" about this project is the greenbacks their investors hope to make. My reason for opposing this line is the decimation of my "Natural State" in some of its most precious and fragile areas, by a line with 200 foot high towers and a 200 foot wide right-of-way, while serving NO CUSTOMERS! I support a logical mix of energies that will allow customers' costs to stay in check while preserving our environment. But Clean Line ain't one of those. Perhaps a little research before spouting off about how wonderful this line would be is in order. Maybe you might like to talk to some of us who have done just such research for the last 7 years and voluminous data we can share. Clean Line is a power line to nowhere serving no one. Julie Morton

Re: “Russian election hacking's Whitewater nexus

So, are we going to have a murder investigation in regards to Mr. Smith's timely death? Now, he can't be deposed or testify to any committee or Mueller or anyone. He, and many others were all to willing to adopt the conspiracy theory of murder and mayhem against the Clintons. Seems to me this is even more fishy. Where is Ken Starr when we need him? Oh yeah, he's in the unemployment line for ignoring the debauched behavior at that big Baptist college in Texas. Funny how he could ignore that but hound Clinton for years for consensual sex in the oval office. Such is the ability of Christians to justify any behavior when it is convenient.

Re: “Camera catches racist rant in NWA Walmart

I have a suggestion. I think all the white racists should move to another land. They could be with like-minded, pea-brained, ignorant white people with an average I.Q. of 12 and an 8th grade education. Personally, I would rather have them out of the gene pool and segregated on their own little island that matches their little brains. I can just guess who they would elect president, can't you? By the way, I am white.

Re: “Senate approves amendment to ban guns from college athletics

WOW, wonderful. This time the NRA lobbyists don't win. Good for Sen. Flowers!! And, Sen. Hutchinson confirms that 90% of us don't agree. WOW!! Since we are so critical so often, let's give them their props. They have no idea how reassuring it is to we the people that not everyone in Little Rock is on the take. And, that some actually listen to their constituents. A good ending on this issue for the people of my beloved state.

Re: “House approves gun bill amendments despite NRA resistance

Mr. Rushing, as I stated, no one, and I mean no one, has more respect for the 2nd Amendment than I. I have an equal respect for all of our constitution. I had to use my gun to defend myself and my home. However, these bills sponsored by the NRA do not represent the 2nd Amendment. They represent the gun manufacturers. I don't know why people have such difficulty separating the NRA from the 2nd Amendment. They are not joined at the hip. In fact, their motivations are completely divergent. The NRA is a money-making organization. Our founding fathers were trying to establish a nation. How are those two related? People commenting in this chain do not want to "disarm America", we merely want some common sense used regarding this subject. Yours is a knee-jerk reaction to any opposition to the NRA. Furthermore, your inability to have a logical conversation about this matter without denigrating those who don't share your opinion and your use of vile language due to a lack of vocabulary don't make you a very effective advocate. Don't worry, no one is coming to take your gun away, as the NRA wants you to believe. On the other hand, no one elected the NRA and they have no right to force these laws on our state. Perhaps you should try some independent thought instead of just mouthing tired old platitudes disseminated by the NRA.
